Chris Hughes on Lorraine

Talking on Lorraine this morning, a devastated Chris Hughes revealed: “I still love her like I loved her before.” Aww. Is the self-confessed polar bear trying to melt notorious ice queen Olivia Attwood? It certainly looks like it.

Referring to the break up, he said: "I think it was just like a breakdown in numerous different things. I think during the last few months of our relationship, or maybe last two or three, we kind of just lost a genuine respect for each other, through lots of different damage, and that caused us not to be able to pick the pieces back up and just go from there. And we've tried breaks, and we've done all that kind of thing, and it didn't really work for us."

Kem Cetinay and Amber Davies (2017 Winners)

Kem and Amber stayed together for four months after they were crowned winners of the show, with Amber even moving in to Kem's family home in Essex. The pair, however, recently split for good following a string of rows and bust-ups, and a clashing of 'hectic work schedules'. They released a statement saying: "we still have a lot of love for each other and will remain good friends." Emosh... looks like Kem wasn't Amber's type on paper after all.

They’re definitely not having a complete break. In fact, it looks like Olivia is deffo still Chris’ type on paper. He told Lorraine: "We're still speaking, we talk every day. I'm still obsessed with her. No-one's fallen out of love, well I haven't certainly, and I still love her like I loved her before, but I felt we had to make sacrifices if this relationship was ever to rebuild again." Maybe he just doesn’t want to keep all eggs in one basket right now?

Referring to the major up and downs of the relationship – we literally feel like we’re on a rollercoaster just spectating – Chris said: "So this was an opportunity to just be apart, and I think it's the right thing to do at the time, because it just wasn't enjoyable. When it's good, it's unbelievable, it's amazing, but when it's not what it can be, we end up just bickering and just causing each other a bit of misery."

Since Chris initially cut the chord a few days ago, Olivia has been throwing major shade on her heartbroken ex. Referring to the break up, she spoke to The Sun and revealed: “What I did wasn’t as bad as what Chris had done. He was angry I’d sent some messages to my ex Bradley.” She’s also been putting on a major united front with fellow single lady and Love Island winner Amber, after her and Kem broke up a few months ago.

We reckon it won’t be long before Olivia’s starts to change her mind. First, she hinted at a reunion, saying: 'If we hadn’t done Love Island, Chris and I would never have met. Hopefully one day we can hit the reset button and do things differently.' And, just last night Olivia shared the following cryptic message on Instagram. OOO.

All will be revealed when their show Crackin’ On airs tonight on ITVBe at 10pm. The show follows the on-off pair as they move in together. And, it looks to be pretty fiery. Chris and Olivia refused to be in the same room together to even promote it. Ooft. We can’t wait.
