Here's What Brad From Love Island Is Doing After The Show

In one of the many twists of 2021's "Love Island," Brad McClelland was dumped from the Spanish villa after he and Lucinda Strafford had to choose which one of them should remain (via Daily Record). In a kind gesture, McClelland suggested that Strafford should stay and see if she could find love.

Wishing he had the opportunity to leave with Strafford by his side, the 25-year-old laborer was gutted to not know where their relationship may have gone if they weren't at the bottom of the votes. "I woke up this morning and I wish we had left together," he said during his exit interview (via Radio Times). "I want to see where that could have went. Not being able to speak to Cind, or ask her where she's at, I want to know how she's woke up this morning."

Stafford ended up leaving the villa a few days later, and has since gotten back together with her ex-boyfriend (via the Mirror). But what has McClelland been up to since his time on "Love Island" came to a close?

For a while, it seemed as though McClelland and Stafford were back together again. Following Stafford's dumping from the villa, the two were pictured on nights out in Brighton (via The Tab) and Stafford had reportedly visited McClelland's hometown of Amble in Scotland (via Chronicle Live).

Obviously, their rekindled relationship didn't last long, as Stafford was rumored to be back with her ex — which turned out to be true (via OK!). This came after McClelland spoke about his connection with Strafford shortly after leaving the show. "I was shocked at how easy me and Cind got along," he told Cosmopolitan.

Despite not having a significant other as of yet, McClelland has settled back into normal life with ease judging by his Instagram. He's already reunited with Liberty Poole for a birthday bash (via Instagram) and seems to be going on a lot of hikes (via Instagram). Let's hope that he manages to finally find love in the near future, too.
