Love Island’s Chris Hughes admits he can’t move on from Olivia Attwood

It's been a difficult time for Chris

| Updated:

His ex-girlfriend, Olivia Attwood, has dubbed their romance ‘the greatest love story’ on reality TV, and now it seems Love Island’s Chris Hughes has returned the sentiment, admitting he hasn’t even thought about moving on after their split a few weeks ago.

In an interview for the couple’s new reality TV series, Crackin’ On: Chris and Olivia, which sees him split with Olivia on-screen, Chris admitted, “What I had with Olivia is still very fresh.

“We’ve only been apart for a few weeks. I haven’t even thought about moving on and seeing other people.”

Reflecting on his Love Island experience a year on, Chris, 25, reminisced about “meeting a girl who I fell in love with and I’ve never felt so strongly about a girl in my life.”

He added “falling in love and meeting someone in a different environment and having her mean so much to me” was the highlight of his year.

Since meeting in the villa, the couple endured a fiery relationship, dogged with rows and rumours of cheating on both sides, before Chris finally ended their romance – after seeing Olivia’s flirty tweets to her footballer ex on a boozy night out.

Unlike Olivia, who admitted she would give Love Island another shot, Chris says he won’t be returning to the ITVBe show that made his name.

“Love Island was a one-off experience for me. I’m not thinking about relationships with anyone else at the moment,” he said.

Appearing on ITV’s Lorraine on Wednesday morning, Chris admitted he would “never say never” about reuniting with Olivia.

However, he was adamant that certain things would need to change.

“We’re still talking, we talk every day. I’m still obsessed with her. No-one has fallen out of love, well I haven’t certainly, and I still love her like I loved her before. But we have to make sacrifices if this relationship is to ever rebuild again.”

Chris and Olivia: Crackin’ On starts Wednesday at 10pm on ITVBe.
