For those who watched the Love Island reunion last night (Monday, December 17th), the bitter argument between Charlie Brake and Ellie Brown was a shining highlight.
Since the contestants departed the villa over summer 2018, almost all of the couples have split up.
However, without daily alerts on the lives of the Love Island contestants, or sitting on the Daily Mail website and bashing refresh 24/7, it’s extremely difficult to keep on top of all the gossip.
In the Love Island Christmas reunion, Ellie was seriously p*ssed at ex-boyfriend Charlie.
Here’s why she was so angry, how they broke up, and a timeline of their car-crash relationship.

Charlie and Ellie on Love Island
Charlie and Ellie were both dumped from the show at the same time, a couple of weeks before the Love Island 2018 final on day 43.
They left the villa hand in hand and went on to continue dating on the outside world.
Charlie and Ellie Cheat Rumours
However, it wasn’t long before cracks started to appear in their relationship… and by that, we mean they were arguing on the plane home from Mallorca.
Things intensified when The Sun reported that Charlie was seen throwing Ellie’s clothes out of the top window of his apartment, although neither of them have 100% confirmed this.
Eventually, a rumour surfaced that Charlie had cheated on Ellie. Something that he has constantly denied.
The pair broke up via social media, with Char-Char uploading this to his Instagram story.
Charlie and Ellie Love Island Reunion
We got more of an insight into what really happened between the pair during the Love Island reunion.
According to Ellie – and not exactly denied by Charlie – this is what really went down.
- Charlie is spotted at dinner with another blonde-haired woman in London.
- Ellie messages him to ask where he is.
- Charlie lies, saying he isn’t in London.
- Charlie continues to lie despite Ellie receiving photo evidence of him at dinner with another woman. He even goes as far as to say “the picture was photoshopped”.
- Ellie tells Charlie she “never wants to speak to him again”.
- Charlie takes this as a break-up call and instantly uploads the above Instagram story saying that they had decided to part ways.
Look at Charlie's body language. Man's got the "I'm too rich for this discussion" attitude going on. I respect it. #LoveIslandReunion

Clearly, reliving the events was too much for Ellie as she broke down into tears during the reunion.
She explained to Charlie that it was humiliating how her friends and family found out they had broken up via Instagram.
In contrast, Charlie argued that it was her fault for initiating the situation with “I never want to speak to you again”.
Looool as if Charlie took ‘never fucking talk to me again’ as an actual break up. How many relationships would’ve been over if that was the case looool😭😂Why’s Charlie even lied to her man. I acc didn’t like Ellie but I feel sorry for the lass #LoveIslandReunion

Ellie and Joey Essex
At the end of the Love Island Christmas party, Ellie received a Secret Santa present, which was a picture of Joey Essex.
This was an inside joke related to the strong rumours that she is now dating TOWIE star Joey Essex.
The pair were spotted snogging on a night out and Ellie has never denied that there is a blossoming romance between them.
In fact, Ellie went on to kiss her picture of Joey, right in from of Charlie!
Char-Char was busy unwrapping a jack-in-the-box snake… karma, ay.
