Some people will go to crazy lengths to be close to their celebrity idols, even going as far as to bid big money for their used items. *Shudder*
But we were wrong: the 29-year-old reality TV star is auctioning off his iconic water bottle from the villa, and it's already reached £2,800.
Chris is selling his signed bottle, along with other items, for charity, giving 100 per cent of the proceeds to Dog's Trust. The auction ends at 10.20am tomorrow (Tuesday 3rd September).
Describing the item, the villa funny man wrote: "Clear - you can practically see through it," adding he "wouldn't recommend trying to watch TV through it."
In typical Chris humour, he added: "Has passed my lips so you could attempt to clone me if you're an evil genius...or just a regular one, I suppose."
The item has so far gained 68 bids with 21 bidders looking to get their hands on - or lips around - Chris's bottle. (Did we mention: Ew.)
Also up for grabs is the Leicester-born Islander signed villa wash bag, which currently stands at £510 with one day to go.
"Clear case so you can see all your makeup needs from all angles, fits an entire kimono as well as a Tangle Teaser for all your quiff and barnet requirements!," joked Chris on the description.
The largest item in the auction is Chris's Love Island suitcase, measuring 28 x 51 x 78 inches. With four days to go, bidders have already put down £740 for the white case, featuring Chris's name in the show's iconic pink swirly writing.
Surprisingly, the lowest raking item in the auction is Chris's signed swim shorts which he assures come unwashed. We thought people would be all over this!
Standing at £460 with four days to go, it remains to be seen if bids will hike for those looking to get, erm - close to Chris.
"Yes they have been worn to do the famous "Salmon" in the villa!," he writes, adding: "No they have not been washed (you strange creatures)."
"Just a boy, that went into a villa, salmoned and now wants to save all the dogs!" reads the description on Chris's seller page.
Chris, a business development manager, just missed the final of the 2019 series, being booted out of the villa alongside villa girlfriend Harley Brash, who he went official with shortly after leaving the show.
However, the couple called it quits just weeks after leaving the villa. In a statement on his Instagram on 19th August, Chris confirmed that they had finally decided to part ways, despite false tabloid rumours having circulated for days prior.
"A serious post for once guys," he wrote. "I'm sad to say that both Harley and I have parted ways and came to this decision last night, despite rumours from the media last week. Both of us have been very busy with separate opportunities and haven't had enough quality time for each other.
"We both have the upmost support and respect for one another and the decision was made amicably. I wish her all the best and will always be glad we rode the Love Island adventure together. I will be very proud of everything she has done and everything she'll do️."
Addressing Harley directly, he affectionately signed off: "The future is bright crumpet go get em!"
