Love Island hunk Casey O'Gorman has revealed him and his ex Claudia Fogarty were briefly friends with benefits after the show.
The pair, who featured on the winter version earlier this year, partnered up before Casey, 26, turned his head for bombshell Rosie Seabrook.
But Casey and Rosie ended just days after the show, which left him open to rekindling with his former flame Claudia.

Now, the star has confessed to hooking up with Claudia, 28, following growing speculation among fans on social media.
It came after Claudia left a heart emoji underneath a topless photo of Casey, who also commented with a flame emoji on one of her photos.
In another post, the 28-year-old posed in a sexy black outfit and captioned the post "date night".
Casey responded: "Am I meeting you there?"
Speaking on the Goss Island podcast, Casey said: "We might have overstepped the friendship boundary maybe once or twice on a night out, but it is very much just friends."
He added: "And since that happened, we’ve basically said we can’t be doing that. We’re just going to stay being friends."
When asked if the situation was "friends with benefits", he responded "yeah".
Casey continued: "I genuinely feel like if I would’ve stayed with Claudia ’til the end of the show, we probably wouldn’t be friends right now. It probably would’ve ended a lot worse and a lot more emotions would’ve got involved."
He admitted they have become "such good mates" before he questioned how people can fake their feelings in the villa.
Footballer Tom Clare was previously asked about his pal's relationship when he appeared on Chloe Burrow's Chloe vs The World podcast.
The former islander replied "no" after he was asked if Claudia and Casey were official, but smiled when asked if the pair had sex.
He opted for a shot and decided to keep his lips sealed on the pair's romance.
