Following reports Olivia and Love Island partner Chris Hughes had split after pictures emerged of the blonde bombshell ‘getting close’ to footballer Bradley Dack, Mike uploaded a cryptic Instagram snap.
Using a screenshot from the moment he ‘warned’ Chris off of Olivia before leaving the Love Island villa, Mike tagged rapper Stormzy alongside the frog and cup-of-tea emoji.
The emoji use seemingly references a popular meme, which shows Kermit the Frog sipping a cup of tea.

He also tweeted a picture of the frog drinking from a mug which was emblazoned with the words, “Be like muggy Mike”.
While the contestants were in the Love Island villa, they took part in a game where they were read out tweets from viewers of the ITV2 show, and they had to guess who they were about.
It was at the point that it emerged rapper Stormzy had tweeted saying Chris was “too good” for girlfriend Olivia.

Meanwhile, Olivia and Mike had previously coupled up for a matter of days, but she ran back to Chris’ arms following a turbulent love triangle emerged between the trio.
And when Mike returned to the villa weeks after his exit, he took Chris aside and tried to advise him on his on-off relationship.
He told him: “I’m ain’t trying to put no s*** in your head or anything, but be careful mate. Personally, she’s not someone I would associate with.

“Obviously the whole thing was the bit where she said was like f*** me in the Hideaway. Just don’t be an idiot. We all known what people can be like and if alarm bells are ringing don’t just ignore them. Be smart.”
Mike’s dig comes after Olivia shut down rumours she had split from Chris, hours after pictures emerged of her with the Blackburn Rovers football player.
Olivia’s manager, Scarlett Short, exclusively told OK! Online: “This is a non story. Olivia bumped into several friends on a night out. She went home to her house where Chris met her following his night out.”
