NTAs 2021: Love Island’s Chloe Burrows cosies up to boyfriend Toby Aromolaran on the red carpet 

She hinted that she won’t stay in contact with her fellow Love Islanders as she branded their reunion show ‘awkward’.

But for now, Chloe Burrows remains close with her former co-stars, with the blonde bombshell joining not only her boyfriend Toby Aromolaran, but also Faye Winter and Teddy Soares, Millie Court and Liam Reardon plus bombshell Liberty Poole on Thursday’s National Television Awards’ red carpet.

Looking sensational in a sheer feather gown, Chloe, 25, put on a loved-up display with Toby, 22, ahead of the star-studded ceremony.

Faye also dropped jaws, stepping out in a show-stopping white frock while Liberty wowed in red.

It comes after Chloe revealed she struggles to stay in contact with people when asked if she will stay friends with her former co-stars.

Appearing on Heat’s Under The Duvet show with her boyfriend, they also admitted they didn’t go out with the other stars after the reunion show.

Instead, they decided to go home as Chloe said: ‘I was so tired and I had this whole thing with my dress. We were jumping in cabs and I just thought, no.’

The blonde beauty said she kept laughing throughout the Aftersun show because it was ‘so awkward’.

‘I was like nervous thinking, ”Oh what’s coming next?”‘ she said. ‘It was funny.’

When asked whether they plan on remaining friends with the other Love Islanders, she paused before responding: ‘Maybe… I don’t know. It’s so hard to keep in touch, it’s really hard.

‘I’m so rubbish on my phone at the moment, people are belling off your phone, it’s like give me a minute.’

‘I stop replying, it’s really hard. We’ll see everyone at events and stuff.’

Also during the interview, Chloe declared she would ‘100%’ like to have babies with Toby while urging TV executives to ‘sign us up’ for more reality shows, adding that while she’d love to do I’m A Celebrity, the tasks would be too ‘scary’ for her.

It comes after Chloe enjoyed a night out with fellow islanders Kaz Kamwi, Tyler Cruickshank and Liberty Poole earlier this month to celebrate the latter’s birthday.

The all-star group seemed to enjoy their night out together as they necked shots and danced along to Peaches by Justin Bieber.

He said in a statement: ‘It’s a huge honour to be hosting the NTAs this year! It still feels like someone has made a wonderful error.

‘I really, really love TV and can’t wait to celebrate the best stuff from what’s been a very weird year or so.’

The comedian also joked he is hoping The Masked Singer will be successful on the night so he can present himself with a prize.

He quipped: ‘I’m also really hoping The Masked Singer wins something so I can present an award to myself. That’s a creative narcissist’s dream.’

NTA’s Executive Producer Kim Turberville added: ‘We are so excited to be back to celebrate a remarkable TV year like no other. There is a wealth of great television to recognise and we are delighted to have Joel at the helm.

‘With his wit and natural charisma, he’ll definitely be bringing a fresh approach to this year’s awards.’

Earlier this year, it was announced the NTAs, which usually takes place in January, had been rescheduled for September 9, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Kim said at the time: ‘The NTAs will return to The O2 London in September to mark the UK’s best, boldest and most beloved TV shows with a surprise-packed event – and we look forward to seeing you on the night for a celebration like no other.’
