Olivia Attwood has reportedly ‘banned’ Kem Cetinay from her reality show with Chris Hughes, in support of Amber Davies.
Love Island’s Chris & Olivia’s own reality series Crackin’ On was announced by ITV last week, to air on its digital channel ITVBe in 2018.
ITV say the show will see cameras following Chris and Olivia throughout every step of their turbulent and at times tumultuous relationship as they move into a new home together.
But Chris’ best pal Kem apparently won’t be making an appearance, after Olivia put her foot down.
According to The Sun newspaper, Olivia doesn’t want Kem on the show following his split from Amber in December.
Amber will supposedly be a given a “prominent role” in the series.
However a TV source suggested it was more Kem’s decision to pull out rather than Olivia’s demand.
Despite plans to appear alongside Chris, the insider explained: “His breakup from Amber changed things; he would rather stay away from the project and give her the chance to be part of it.
“His schedule is jam packed with Dancing On Ice training and presenting jobs so it works out better for him too.
“He will still watch the show and wishes Chris all the best with it.”
Speaking about their reality show last week, Chris said “Liv and I have been through so much in our relationship in the last six months that it’s hard to remember what life was like before we met in the Love Island villa.
“I wouldn’t change any of it and I’m looking forward to going on this latest TV journey with her.”
Olivia added: “Life with Chris is like one big rollercoaster but it’s safe to say we’re never boring.
“As anyone who saw us on Love Island knows, we can bicker hard but we love harder so I’m sure we’re all in for an eventful series!”
Chris & Olivia: Crackin’ On will air later on in 2018 on ITVBe.
