What is Chuggs' bucket hat business Booby Buckets?
Love Island's 2019 Ovie Soko isn't the only bucket hat connoisseur.
Chuggs, the newest Love Island 2021 contestant making his debut in episode four of the programme's seventh series, became an entrepreneur.

Booby Buckets sells reversible bucket hats, with prices ranging from £15 to £35, as well as beanies, caps and boonies.

What does the name Booby Buckets mean?
Although the name of the brand may provoke some chuckles, Booby Buckets was actually inspired by the Blue Footed Booby bird, found in Galapagos, as the company's official website suggests.
