LOVE Island's Arabella Chi dated Ellie Goulding's ex – who is also the Beckhams' bodyguard.
The 28-year-old model enjoyed a long-distance romance with hunky Bobby Rich from July 2015 until February 2016.
The fitness instructor would send flowers and love notes to the Islander, with a friend of Arabella's sharing: "Arabella has always gone for a certain type of man – handsome with a strong, fit build who looks after their body.
"Bobby was a prime example of that and Arabella fell hard when she met him.
"He was older than her and was travelling around a lot for his work, mixing with celebrities and jetsetting here and there."
The source added to the MailOnline that Arabella felt Bobby brought "glamour and excitement" to her life, but Bobby's jet-set lifestyle eventually drove them apart.
In fact, the hunk was working with Madonna soon after he met Arabella, with the music icon's tour taking him on the road.
The beauty made no secret of how much she missed her man online, regularly swapping comments with Bobby on social media platforms.
At one point, the publication report that she told him: "Get your a** home", with another instance seeing Arabella share a photo of herself on a train with Bobby commenting: "Be better if it was a pic of you on the plane."
Despite their best efforts, the distance proved too much and the pair are said to have split soon after Valentine's Day.
Bobby threw himself into his work, with it believed that he lives in Guy Ritchie's home where he acts as a personal assistant to the star.
He is also regularly pictured with Guy and Madonna's children.
In addition, he works closely with Guy's close pal David Beckham – regularly acting as security for the former footballer, his wife Victoria, and their four children.
Nine months after splitting from Arabella, Bobby striked up a romance with singer Ellie, 32, and the pair dated between November 2016 and February 2017 – one month before the star met her now-fiance Casper Jopling.
The Sun Online previously revealed that Arabella had another link to Ellie, having dated her personal trainer Jay Copley.
She split from him in February, with a source telling us at the time: "Jay and Arabella made the perfect couple.
"They are both really into health and fitness. Arabella doesn’t really drink, and enjoyed hanging out with her posh pals in London."
Arabella was left devastated when Jay went on to brutally dump her for a lookalike – even refusing to pay for their shared dog.
Arabella entered the Love Island villa last week and it didn't take long before she caused some drama.
The beauty has had a difficult time in the house after she stole Danny Williams from original Islander Yewande Biala.
Yewande's best friends, Amber Gill and Anna Vikali, have made their feelings on Yewande getting the boot clear to the model – with shocked fans slamming the girls "pathetic" behaviour online as they compared them to Mean Girls.
