The ex girlfriend of Scots Love Island star Biggs Chris this week shocked fans by releasing a Tik Tok video which claimed his relationship with fellow Islander Rebecca Gormley was ‘fake’.
But who is Biggs’ ex lover Lori Matthews? And what made her share a savage video blasting her one-time boyfriend for ‘lying to her’?
The video in question, was a tell-all Tik Tok, which revealed a string of text messages between Biggs and his ex back in March.
It read: “You think you can hurt my feelings? My ex convinced me to support him going on Love Island… then left me after to get with another islander…”.
The video then went on to reveal personal text messages between Biggs and Lori reassuring her he was going into the Love Island villa for ‘them’.
And in later texts he revealed his relationship with Rebecca was just ‘for the public’ and would ‘never proceed’.
While Biggs and Rebecca did not leave the Love Island villa together, they revealed in February that they had become an item after returning to the UK.
In the texts, Lori can be seen putting pressure on Biggs to end the ‘fake relationship’ with Rebecca to which he replies: “Lori it isn’t about you’.
She said: “Listen Biggs I stood by you. Not for you to be with her for a year. So answer me now I need a time frame.”
And in the next post, Lori reveals yet another text message where Biggs says: “Lori. Truthfully it’s not about you right now.”
Lori responds: “End it with her and do your own thing. You got what you wanted? Were you lying when you said you wanted to cut it soon?”
Biggs replied: “It’s about my life and how this year I wanna grow am telling you me and Rebecca won’t be a thing if your not happy that this is fake.”
The video, which has had over 914,000 views on Twitter then resulted in Biggs publicly apologising to his girlfriend Rebecca on his Instagram.
But who is the girl behind the video?
Lori Matthews, is a 26-year-old makeup artist from Airdrie, who previously dated the Love Island star right before he entered the villa.
It is unclear how long Lori and Biggs were an item for as all traces of their relationship were deleted from social media prior to him appearing on the show. This includes the YouTube channel they shared where they took part in many viral challenges such as ‘Boyfriend does my makeup’ and also a ‘Q&A’ video.
But Lori is not just known for being Biggs’ ex-girlfriend and is in fact a very talented makeup artist who has her own YouTube channel.
On her channel, Lori films, vlogs and ‘story time’ style videos, where she opens up about different life situations.
In one of her more recent videos, Lori posted that back in January, she travelled to London to take part in a show called ‘Rich Kids Go Homeless’ but didn’t go through with the whole show after feeling it wasn’t right for her.
Despite being born and raised in Scotland, Lori has recently moved to Manchester after constantly splitting her time between there and Scotland.
On her YouTube channel, the blonde beauty said she decided to move to the new city, to continue her career as a makeup artist and to be closer to her friends.
The 26-year-old is pals with successful makeup artist ‘Mmmitchell’ and social media influencer Arianna Ajtar.
