Love Island’s Joe Garratt has spoken openly about how he was ‘chubbier’ when he was younger, and now pictures from his friend’s Instagram account have revealed just how different he now looks.
He said: “I’ve only had one girlfriend,” he said. “I didn’t have any relationships before that I was a slightly chubbier child,
“I injured my knee in rugby and had surgery and pushed it a bit far and gained a bit of weight,
“I went from Friend Zone Joe to suddenly, ‘who are you?'”
He went on a health kick, and explained: “I realised, actually I’m unfit and it’s time to be healthy, so started eating lots more fruit and veg and it started falling off.”
Joe has been causing a bit of controversy after he began ‘acting like a stalker’. In fact, the 22-year-old has been compared to Joe Goldberg from Netflix’s ‘YOU’ a lot on Twitter. The character, played by Penn Badgley, stalks a woman named Bec.
The comparison was made when Joe Garrett told Lucie Donlan he could ‘no longer trust her’ after she went on a date with Tommy Fury. Despite the fact she had no choice.
They only met on Monday, and were together for less than 24 hours before Tommy Fury entered the villa and decided to couple up with Lucie, leaving Joe alone.J
Joe was left heartbroken (and very annoyed) by the whole thing. When Lucie and Tommy returned from their candlelight dinner, she went over to Joe and told him she wanted to go to bed. However, he insisted that they spoke first.
He told her he wasn’t happy about her going on the date, and didn’t think that he could ‘trust her’ anymore.
Joe said: “I thought I could trust you, but now I don’t feel like I can.”
Lucie replied: “It’s been two and a bit days… It’s going fast”. She then told Joe she wasn’t interested in Tommy anyway.
Love Island fans were quick to make the comparison, and also mentioned how similar they look to each other.
