Only recently on Love Island, Olivia Attwood came to blows with partner Chris Hughes after he made an effort with newcomers Georgia Harrison and Theo Campbell.
The blonde beauty brought up his behaviour at a romantic brunch date and said: “I feel in general that you don’t like that I’m loud, the way that I speak, the way that I dress, that’s how I feel Chris.”
To which Chris replied: “I’m telling you, if that is the way I make you feel, if you feel like it’s me who is dragging you back or holding you back or if you feel like you’re acting differently around me then you can’t be with me.You need to do it for yourself. As much as that hurts. I want you to be happy.
“If you’re telling me that when you’re around me, you can’t be you then that is rubbish.”

Olivia then stormed off from the date – leaving Chris in tears over the drama – and she later admitted that she wanted them to take a break.
However, it looks as though their temporary split could be over already on Monday’s explosive episode.
Talking to Gabby Allen and Montana Brown about how it’s going, Olivia admits: “The problem is, I look at his little blonde pea head and I just want to smother him in kisses. As much as he annoys me, that feeling never goes away…
“But if I start holding a conversation or making people laugh or telling stories about my life, he gets up and walks away because he’s so uninterested and finds me annoying.”
To which Montana adds: “So many guys have come in here and the reason they like you is because you’re witty and funny…
“There is a reason that people find you attractive, it’s not just because you’re stunning.

“At the end of the day, if Chris doesn’t want to embrace you the way you are, someone else will in the click of a finger so he needs to realise that.”
While later on, Olivia and Chris get together to talk about their “break” and where they stand with each other.
The outspoken couple agree that they haven’t had a proper break because of the close proximity in the villa, but Chris understands Olivia’s reason for it.
He says: “I completely understand 100 per cent why we had this break, well this space, from each other because it gives each other a bit of thinking time.

“At the end of the day you’re amazing, I feel like we’ve both learnt… At the end of the day we’re both big personalities and we’re both similar people sometimes I compete with you and I shouldn’t.
“I should let you do your thing… I love you for exactly who you are. You can make me laugh, you’re funny, your personality is ridic and you’re stunning so there are three boxes there out of three you’ve ticked. I just want us to move forward and put that all behind us.”
To which Olivia replies: “I love you for the fact that you’re loud and funny and you make everyone laugh.
“But in a way we are almost too similar to be compatible because when I’m being loud and stupid, I need you to allow me because otherwise I’m going to feel like you’re suppressing my personality.”
