Here’s all you need to know about the Love Island villa’s richest ever resident…
Here’s all you need to know about the former 2018 Love Islander who could be the villa’s poshest ever resident who has split from girlfriend Ellie Brown…
Who is Charlie Brake?
Charlie, 23, is a socialite from London’s swanky Chelsea.
Before entering the show, he said he’s different to the rest of the villa because “I don’t really have to work so I tend to do what I want, when I want”.
He also said he was worried that if the Islanders clocked on to his privileged upbringing there might be “a lot of jealousy there”.
However, flashy Charlie also boasted that he’s even whisked a girl away skiing on a second date.
He’s described himself as “pretty cut throat” and admitted: “I have got a reputation to walk over people, even if they are my mates. If I want something, I’ll go for it.”
Why is Charlie so rich?
His grandfather is the founder of food distribution company Brakes.
They sold the firm in 2002 to a US-based private equity firm for £434million.
The deal made the families of the three founding brothers over £80million apiece.
In 2016, the firm changed hands again for a staggering £2.2billion
When did he split from Ellie?
Ellie Brown had the nation behind her when she appeared to be falling for Dr Alex, however, she decided quickly that they had no sexual chemistry.
When Alex headed off to Casa Amor, Ellie enjoyed her freedom to get to know socialite Charlie Brake and they made their relationship official on July 2.
Although things seemed to be going well enough for the two to move in together after the villa, friends of the couple have been having trouble keeping up with their rocky relationship.
On August 14, we reported how Charlie was seen “flirting with several girls” on a night out clubbing without Ellie.
The couple also had another furious bust-up after he refused to say he loved her in front of their friends.
Then there was the fiery showdown after the Love Island reunion show where Charlie got “too drunk” during the live broadcast which left Ellie fuming.
Charlie retaliated by throwing Ellie’s clothes out of the window after a row about him chatting up a girl on a plane.
On August 23, it emerged he had chucked her out of his house during another huge row and on September 25, the pair confirmed they were over.
