Margot Robbie's Love Island Encounter Didn't End On The Red Carpet

Lucie Donlan has revealed she and her co-stars ended up back at the actress' apartment.

One of our favourite celebrity photos of the last month was from the red carpet of Birds Of Prey, where two-time Oscar nominee Margot Robbie was seen barely able to control her excitement at meeting the cast of Love Island.

Well, as it turns out, the story didn’t end there.

Former Islander Lucie Donlan – who appeared on last year’s series – has told The Sun that after their red carpet encounter with Margot, she and her former co-stars received a video message from the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood star, and ended up partying with her at her flat in London.

Lucie explained: “After the film, we got a video message via an Instagram DM of Margot saying, ‘Please come to the after-party!’ We got ready really quickly and joined her at The Oxo Tower.”

She added: “Michael [Griffiths] and Jordan [Hames] got tequila shots in, then we went back to her apartment with a few of her close friends.

“We chatted about surfing, because she’s Australian, and she loves longboarding. It was so relaxed - she was just chilling in her slippers!

“She said, ‘If you’re ever in LA, hit us up and we’ll hang out.’ I just couldn’t believe it.”

Australian-born Margot has made no secret of being a Love Island superfan, telling Metro in 2018 that she was stunned to see the Islanders even knew who she was, after they compared her to former contestant Megan Barton Hanson.

She said: “The other night we were watching and I think it was Alex [George] who said that, and we all lost it! We were like, ‘oh my God they know who I am on Love Island!’”
