Olivia Attwood's mum has defended her daughter following the latest Love Island 2017 drama.
Appearing on ITV's Lorraine yesterday, Olivia's mum Jennifer admitted it had been "difficult" watching Olivia's journey in the villa.
She's been accused of playing a game by some viewers, especially after admitting to wanting money over children in a recent task.
"She’s not the girl I know," her mum said. "She’s not playing a game but it is well edited. They are putting together a wonderful show and it’s fantastic so I’m not criticising that."
he’s one of the kindest people I know and it’s not coming across, so that’s upsetting."
Following Olivia's revelation, she went on to make it up to Chris by asking to be his official girlfriend with a passionate speech.
That night the pair got 'close' in the bedroom but her mum didn't find it awkward at all.
“Her and Chris have been on a rollercoaster of a relationship in there. They are actually one of the last ones to do anything physical," she said. “It was bound to happen at some point if they stayed together. It’s natural!”
Olivia's mum Jennifer continued: “She’s 26, it’s going to happen. They’ve been in there a long time. There’s a spark there, I read her body language and there is something real there.”
And on Chris, she added: “I think he’s lovely and he’s absolutely charming. He is a fantastic role model for young boys and young men. I’d be delighted when she brings him home.”
Love Island 2017 continues nightly on ITV2.
