Love Island’s Craig Lawson spends some quality time with his cousin Amy Childs in Essex

LOVE Island hunk Craig Lawson enjoys a stroll and a chat with his Towie cousin Amy Childs after returning to the UK.

The tattooed Essex lad, who bagged himself a snog with Camilla Thurlow on the ITV2 show, grinned as he joked about with new mum Amy.

Tanned glamourpuss Amy and walking work of art Craig hardly looked like birds of a feather during their walk on the streets of their native Brentwood in Essex.

But dad-of-three Craig, who angered his ex-girlfriend by going on Love Island, seemed delighted to be in the star’s company, four days after being kicked off the programme with Nathan and Danielle – who are now dating each other.

Red-haired Amy only revealed herself to be the cousin of Craig after he’d gone into the Love Island villa, a few weeks into the 2017 series.

She wished him all the best on Twitter, writing: “Good luck to my cousin Craig that has just entered the Love Island villa.”

At the moment it sounds like Amy might need a spell on the island of love herself, though.

The reality TV favourite recently split from ex-convict boyfriend Bradley Wright, the father of her baby daughter, six weeks after giving birth.

But Amy, who seems to have lost a lot of weight since the birth, has ruled out moving on from Bradley as she says he’s being a great dad to their daughter Polly.

Amy left Towie in 2011 and went on to major career success in other TV shows and in retail – career success which Craig may now be aspiring to.

He certainly made his mark in the Love Island villa, doing some serious “grafting” to impress Camilla Thurlow after her heart was broken by Jonny Mitchell.

In the end Camilla – who had a fling with Prince Harry – didn’t think their romance had a future and all they shared together was a snog before Craig was driven to the airport.

Viewers weren’t all conviced that Craig’s feelings for Cam were genuine, but after leaving the show he hit back, saying: “For me I had a very strong connection with her before I went in there because I felt I could understand her.

“I’m 100 per cent in or nothing. I weren’t going to go in there and play hard to get and mess around with her emotions,” he added.

However, it seems Craig was anticipating a big TV future for himself and Camilla as he’d signed up to an agency to get them both their own TV show BEFORE going into Love Island.
