Charlie Brake is best known for his stint on series four of Love Island (one of the best series) where he was coupled up with Ellie Brown. He first appeared in Casa Amor but made his way to the villa after getting with Ellie.
Although he didn't make it to the final, many will still recognise him from his time in the villa and during his brief stint on Ex On The Beach. However, relative to other cast members from that series, Charlie has been fairly quiet since his time on the show.
Who is Charlie Brake dating?
Charlie Brake recently posted a picture of him with a new lady friend on his Instagram Story. He reposted a photo she had posted on her account and in the snap Charlie and the mystery girl Hattie Snook appear to have been skiing.
The pair appear pretty cosy with Hattie even putting her hand on Charlie's knee... Maybe they're on a romantic getaway?
Other than her name there' not really really much known about Hattie.
Her Instagram account is private but in her profile picture she can be seen donning a tweed cap and wearing what looks like a hunting jacket. She's giving us some strong countryside vibes, suggesting she's the perfect fit for Charlie.
There is also a Depop account under her name that appears to be inactive. You can see from the account that she has expensive tastes as she was able to sell a pair of boots for a whopping £250.
Charlie's relationship with Hattie follows a trend of his post Love Island relationships remaining pretty private. However, back in 2020 he was rumoured to have been dating Wheel Of Fortune presenter Jenny Powell - we know, weird right?
Who is Charlie Brake?
Charlie Brake is a socialite and entrepreneur best known for his time on Love Island, where he was coupled up with Ellie. Outside of Love Island he also appeared on Ex On The Beach with Ellie (oops spoiler... their relationship didn't really pan out).
Right from joining the show, Charlie was separated from the other Islanders due to his wealthy background, leading some to label him the all-time richest Islander. He even later admitted to keeping his net worth secret from the other islanders.

Love Island cast 2018
From Love Island 2018 winners Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham to Casa Amor's Savannah Darnell and Kaz Crossley, here's what all the islanders are doing now...
Kendall was initially coupled up with Niall Aslam but dropped him like a rainbow fish shaped potato when Adam Collard slithered over. She was dumped by the scaly one when Rosie Williams caught his eye and ended up being the first person to leave the Love Island villa.
Fast forward a few days and Kendall had already forgotten Adam after a hot date with Love Island 2017 star Kem Cetinay. Go, Kendall. She has since gone on to become a Boohoo ambassador (a Love Island alumna rite of passage), she launched her own range of fake eyelashes and has partnered up with underwear brand With Love Lilly. Oh, and she had a nose job too.
Niall left Love Island of his volition and the nation (well, us anyway) cried into our cornflakes as he was 100% our favourite man to win.
Hayley was initially coupled up with Eyal Booker but the pair did not hit it off. She later tried to make it work with Charlie Frederick but, alas, the pair were dumped on day 13. She's perhaps best known for sharing her insight on Brexit.
Hayley has subsequently spoken out about her abusive father and her mother's brave escape from him. She's also defended the Brexit comments she made in the villa. Oh, and she even dated DJ Tom Zanetti who played at one of the villa's pool parties. Hayley took to Instagram to tell fans, 'I believe the most important relationship we have is the one we have with ourselves'. You do you, Hayley.
Charlie lasted a heady five days in the villa. He coupled up with Hayley but was left frustrated when she failed to return his ardor.
Rosie entered the villa with Georgia Steel on day four and was drawn to show villain Adam. Despite her giving him a hand based sex act, he moved on to Zara McDermott and tried to pretend it was Rosie's fault.
Rosie was dumped from the villa on day 20. She then had a late night McDonald's with Kem, and a lovely day out with Niall. In a bizarre turn of events, she was also snapped with the Chris Nothman who plays Mr Big in Sex And The City ¯_(ツ)_/¯
It's our strongly held belief that Eyal is one of the fittest Love Island contestant ever. We wouldn't want to be caught in a camp fire chat with him, mind. He had two unsuccessful relationships in the villa and was booted out when Meg Barton Hanson pied him off in favour of Wes Nelson.
Since leaving the villa Eyal's been hanging out at festivals with Caroline Flack, and has talked of re-igniting his music career. Awks. He also had a stint on Celebs Go Dating but still didn't find love. Oh, and he took part in Celebs on the Ranch, alongside reality TV legends Bobby Norris and Louie Spence. Eyal has actually found love with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna's daughter Delilah Belle Hamlin.
Zara lasted ten days in the villa, in which time she went for Adam despite witnessing the way he treated Kendall. She didn't spend time getting to know any other islanders, which is the reason they gave for dumping her.
Zara may have lost out on £50,000 but she won at love - for a time. She said she'd wait for Adam and despite snogging yet another woman in the villa, when he was dumped he and Zara made things official. They broke up shortly before Valentine's Day 2019 after he reportedly spent a night in a hotel room with two women. She's now dating Made in Chelsea's Sam Thompson.
We had high hopes for Savanna when she entered Casa Amor. Sadly, she failed to capture any of the boys' imaginations and she was sent home before making it into the main villa.
Savanna has released a single called Bye Bye and we have to admit that it's quite catchy. She's also appears in the new Disney Aladdin movie and she's currently touring the UK as a dancer in Thriller Live Musical.
Jordan tried to make things happen with Georgia Steel in the villa. She stayed faithful to Josh Denzel...and we know how that ended.
Since his five day flash in the villa, Jordan has mainly been hanging around looking hot by walls. Lovely stuff.
Oh, Dean. He set his sights on Megan but didn't stand a chance against fitlord Alex 'Glasses Alex' Miller.
After his brief stay in the villa, Dean started hanging out with fellow dumpee Jordan in northern clubs . He's since posted a lot of 'blue steel' photos on his Insta page for spons and ads.
Charlie was (perhaps) put in Casa Amor as blonde bait for sex lobster Dr Alex. She failed to light his fire and he pied her in favour of Grace Wardle. More on her later.
Since her brief stint in the villa, Charlie has mainly been working on her Instagram game.
Alex 'Glasses Alex' Miller scored very highly in our sexiest Love Island contestants line-up. Sadly, he paired up with Megan, which is probably why he was dumped after finding himself in the bottom three least popular couples.
Since leaving the show, Alex has mainly been looking HELLA sexy on Instagram. We're still big fans. Alex also reignited Love Island feuds when he left the official Love Island group chat just months after the show finished. Awks. He also now sells rude videos of himself on an adult site...
As the villa's King Snake, Adam did incredibly well to stay in the Love Island for 33 days. That's 33 days of mugging Kendall, Rosie, Zara and Darylle off. Bless them.
He and Zara McDermott split after seven months when he reportedly dumped her by text. He then appeared to send a BRUTAL message to his ex via Instagram. Ouch. He regularly posts topless pics of himself so, there's that.
Ellie was never going to be popular in the villa - she entered as Jack Fincham's ex, putting Dani Dyer's nose right out of joint. She ended up in a very odd partnership with Sam Bird before being dumped from the show.
Darylle lasted seven days in the villa after being chosen as Adam's lucky fourth (not counting Megan) lady in Casa Amor.
She's since had an absolute hoot on Love Island: After Sun and been to see The Dreamboys, where she apparently met and charmed Jake Quickenden. Not a bad life TBH. She's also started up her own microblading business.
Grace was pretty quiet when she entered Casa Amor which she put down to a lack of vitamins. Sure, Grace. Sure. She was dumped after ten days which is actually not a bad run.
Since crashing back into reality, Grace has kept us up-to-date on Instagram - and is the owner of her own hairdressing company in London.
Frankie got together with Samira Mighty and she was devastated when he was revealed as the least popular man in the villa and booted out. Not devastated enough to follow him straight out though.
Samira was in Love Island from day one but was initially paired with Dr Alex (bleurgh) before entering a slightly odd coupling with Sam Bird. She followed Frankie out of the villa, four days after he got the boot.
Sam and his suspiciously small eyebrows started life in the villa with Samira, before returning from Casa Amor with Jack's ex Ellie Brown on his arm. He then swooped in when Georgia was left broken hearted by Josh, but we weren't convinced they had the 'real deal'. Bizarrely, the couple chose to split up in order to stay in the villa. But days later, they proved doubters wrong by choosing to walk out of the villa as a couple.
Sam did the media rounds with Georgia for three months before they split in October 2018. Sam claimed Georgia's ex was the cause of the break up, something Georgia denies. As for those teeny tiny brows, he's since had them preened and re-shaped.
Illustrating a whole new definition of 'loyal', Georgia kissed best pal Laura Anderson's boyfriend Jack Fowler. But before this fall from grace, we have to admit that Georgia was a good friend to the girls in there. She was left apparently heartbroken when Josh Denzel dropped her for Kazimir Crossley - but she quickly perked up again with Sam Bird.
Quite frankly, we were relieved when physically flawless Jack came in and 100% took Laura's mind off muggy Wes Nelson with one flex of those biceps. But the pair didn't work out, and he cracked on with surfer chick Laura Crane. Yes, it is a bit awkward that both girls shared the same name but it didn't stop him.
Despite proving himself to be a totally 'hot dad' in the baby challenge, he was booted out with Laura in the final week. They have since split - but Jack got us hot under the collar once again when he returned to our screens in Celebs Go Dating.
Surfer chick Laura had a short stint in the villa but managed to grab the attention of coupled up boys Jack Fowler and Dr Alex George. She chose Jack and the pair made a BEAUTIFUL couple.
Alas, Laura was booted out of the villa quicker than you could say 'surf's up'. But at least the pair got to spend time with their little Aubrey in the baby challenge. Aww. Laura and Jack have since split up. In November 2018 Laura was rushed to hospital where she was later diagnosed with the life-threatening infection sepsis. She's now dating Made in Chelsea's Tristan Phipps.
Dr Alex George
Dr Alex had an odd ride in Love Island. At first an object of pity, he then revealed himself to be hella entitled when Ellie Brown rejected him, and was a cad to the only woman who cared for him, Alexandra Crane.
Alexandra genuinely seemed to fancy Dr Alex which just goes to show that there's someone out there for everyone.
It's fair to say that we were NOT fans of Wes Nelson in the villa after he dumped our sweet princess Laura Anderson in favour of Meg Barton-Hanson, who we actually quite like too.
Since leaving the villa after somehow coming fourth, Wes moved in with Megan. He kept himself in the public eye with a drama-filled appearance in Dancing on Ice 2019. Wes and Megan broke up in early 2019, before he moved on with fashion influencer, Alicia Roddy. They've since split.
Megan was probably one of the most unapologetic Love Island's love rats of all time and to be honest, you go girl!
Since leaving the show, Megan has become a huge talking point in popular culture. From defending a woman's right to have plastic surgery to openly discussing mental health problems - this girl is flying the flag for women everywhere. Arguably, she's come out with the best prospects. She and Wes split in January 2019.
Josh entered Love Island on day eight and entered a never-quite-right partnership with Georgia, before dumping her for Kaz.
Since leaving the villa he's appeared on Lorraine as a business correspondent. Sure... He stayed with Kaz until January 2019, after the pair embarked on a tropical holiday. He's returned to his previous job as a presenter and has been travelling over the world for it.
Paul Knops was a latecomer to the Love Island party, entering the villa on day 43 when he coupled up with Laura Anderson. He waited about five seconds before revealing he'd snogged Britney Spears in a steamy music video.
Paul has since been to Burning Man and posts frequent, smouldering, pics of himself on Instagram. He and Laura have broken up and he was SAVAGE about it. He's also spoke out on whether Love Island is fake or not...
Laura had one heck of a journey in Love Island. She eventually took second place because we could ALL feel for her.
We didn't hear much about Laura to start with other than about her new hair and new face. But then she got together with another Love Islander in a coupling we did NOT see coming, Fair play to Laura, he's an absolute studmuffin. The pair broke up after just a few weeks but have since reunited.
Jack was paired up with Dani Dyer on the very first day of Love Island and a sure fire love thing was born.
Since leaving the show, Jack got his feet well under the table with the Dyers. Frankly, we don't blame him. He moved in with Dani, bought a dog with her and even spent Christmas with her. Drama struck when Dani announced they split in December - but alas, she took back her words just a few days later and confirmed it was just a silly argument. But the pair split for good in April 2019. Weep.
Dani captured the nation's heart on Love Island and went the full distance, winning the show after a whopping 59 days in the villa.
Ellie entered the Love Island villa with Zara McDermott. She had the misfortune of coupling up with Dr. Alex, before turning to billionaire Chelsea boy, Charlie Brake.
Whilst Ellie and Zara's friendship has gone from strength to strength, we can't say the same for Ellie's love life. Although she moved in with ultra-rich Charlie, their relationship soon came to a bitter end - which was televised on the Love Island Christmas Reunion. Oh, the joys of reality TV.
Charlie was a late arrival to the Love Island villa and only got to chance to couple up with feisty Geordie, Ellie Brown before he was booted off.
Other than bickering with Ellie, Charlie didn't make much of an impact during his time in the Love Island villa - but once the heir stepped returned to UK soil, all hell broke loose. Charlie was linked to TOWIE's Ferne McCann, which thus sparked a huge fight between pals Zara, Adam and Ferne at the glitzy NTAs. Charlie opted for another Love Island fling - but not before returning to his TOWIE type-on-paper, when he snogged Amber Turner.

How old is Charlie Brake?
Charlie is 27 years old. He was born on the 5th of January 1995, meaning he is a Capricorn for those into their astrology.
Where is Charlie Brake from?
Charlie is from Chelsea. He might've been a better fit for Made In Chelsea than Love Island, although Charlie may disagree - he revealed in 2018 that he had previously auditioned for MIC, but didn't have any luck.
When was Charlie Brake on Love Island?
Charlie was on Love Island back in 2018 as part of series four. He joined on day 26 through Casa Amor and stayed until day 43.
What happened between Charlie Brake and Ellie Brown?
While the sparks were flying on the show, things didn't really pan out for the couple once they left the villa. Things looked good in the beginning, with the pair quickly moving in together but it soon became clear things were not going to pan out.
While Charlie announced their split on Instagram, Ellie later claimed she hadn't been told the statement was going to be released so was effectively broken up with over Insta (ouch).

It all came to a head at the Love Island reunion, with an intense argument between the two. They then reunited again on Ex On The Beach but things didn't exactly go swimmingly for the pair.
What does Charlie Brake do for a living?
In addition to being a socialite, Charlie is also an entrepreneur. He started the hard seltzer company Naughty Water last year, in the depths of lockdown. It doesn't seem like he has plans to return to TV anytime soon.

Where does Charlie Brake's wealth come from?
Charlie inherited his wealth from his family. His grandfather started the food distribution company Brakes. In 2002 the business was sold to a US-based private equity firm for £434 million, making the families of each of the three founding brothers £80 million each. Yep, you heard us right... Charlie's family's rolling in it.
What is Charlie Brake's net worth?
Charlie's net worth is unclear. When he was on Love Island he told Jack Fincham that although his family we wealthy, he himself was not a millionaire. This was in 2018, so in the time since appearing on the show and starting his seltzer business, this may have changed... Who's to say?
