Chris Hughes and Olivia Attwood defend their relationship against showmance claims
Love Island stars Chris Hughes and Olivia Attwood have hit back at fake relationship claims.
The reality show couple appeared on ITV’s Lorraine this morning to promote their new show Crackin’ On. However, the pair began the interview by setting the record straight about their relationship.
With rumours flying around that the Love Island contestants have been putting it all on for the cameras, host Lorraine Kelly asked if their relationship really is the real deal. Liv replied: “I feel like we wouldn’t be doing this if it wasn’t real.
“We’re not filtered are we? We don’t hide anything. We’re the same in the real world as we are in the villa.”
Chris agreed: “Yes, it’s not like heartbreak exactly, but you wouldn’t go to that level of emotion and get so worked up about something that wasn’t real.”
Olivia continued: “And if it was a showmance we’d make it more glossy and perfect. I think we wouldn’t be just killing each other all the time.”
Lorraine also asked the lovebirds if they would ever attempt any other reality television shows in the future.
Olivia said: “I think we both said the jungle would be amazing, didn’t we?
“Can you imagine? We’d be fighting in there as well. Imagine if we had a challenge together where we had to work together?”
Chris quickly shut down that idea, however, saying: “It wouldn’t happen.”
Lorraine continues weekdays at 8.30am at ITV.
