With Mike now out of the equation following last night's double elimination, Chris and Olivia were once again free to pursue things in the villa yesterday.
Olivia told the girls: “He was so sweet to me last night as well. How he’s handled the last couple of days. That old Chris and the Chris that we’ve seen the last few days that has literally shown me so much about his character.
"He’s so good looking, he’s so funny, he’s not going to struggle to meet a girl in this villa. He could so easily have said to me last night ‘do you know what Liv, you’ve made your bed go and lie in it.”
Continuing to gush about Chris the Beach Hut, Olivia surmised: “He’s like a Labrador puppy. So much love to give, so excited. Keeps running into furniture, that’s just pretty much him.”
But were things about to move too quickly for Olivia’s liking? As she and Chris re-connected during a chat on the grass, Chris unintentionally let slip the L word:
Olivia asked: “Who do you want to be coupled up with?”
Chris replied: “You.”
Olivia quipped: “Even though I’m a bit of an a***h***?”
Chris said: “I love you for it.”
Olivia told him: “Stop it.”
Chris quickly added: “Not like that.”
Olivia admitted however, that this had taken her by surprise: “It just freaks me out a bit.
"I’m not saying he’s in love with me, I know it’s a turn of phrase but every time he says it, we’re both like ‘this is weird, let’s move on.’"
Love Island 2017 airs tonight at 9PM on ITV2.
