It occurs in around 1 in 1,000 children, and is more common in boys.
It’s usually diagnosed in the womb, and is thought by doctors to be genetic as it runs in families.
Hugo has been open about the condition, revealing he ‘had lots of operations’ when he was a kid’.
He says he sees it as ‘natural swagger’, and that his appearance on the show will demonstrate ‘what full lives, in every respect, that people clubfoot can lead.’
Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub. Episodes are available the following morning on BritBox
