Muggy Mike’s Love Island return divided Twitter but Chris and Olivia’s break-up united viewers in anger

Everybody loves Chris

Love Island is no stranger to an explosive re-coupling but last night the show proved it’s exactly the nation’s type on paper when it aired an explosive break-up and an equally explosive return of two former islanders.


That’s right, Muggy Mike – as he was christened by Chris when he explosively nicked Olivia during another explosive re-coupling – is back and viewers can’t make up their mind about whether that’s a good thing or not.

Some are thrilled to see Mike and Sam Gowland (who also has history with our Liv) back in Majorca.

And they can’t wait to see what it means for Chris and Olivia (more on that in just a second, don’t you worry).

While others are already priming to pie Mike off again.

It’s fair to say opinion on Mike’s return is split, but the consensus on Chris and Olivia’s break-up is most definitely not.

Viewers watched in shock as the duo finally ‘called it off’ following an argument on the night of Jonny’s departure.

Olivia said she was done with Chris (again) and he wasn’t up for rekindling the relationship (again), saying he’d finally realised they were wrong for each other and wanted her to be happy.

Olivia didn’t take that very well, kicking off a full-blown row with an exasperated Chris in the bedroom. And Twitter was 100% on Chris’s side throughout the whole argument.

In fact, some viewers were worried about what the whole situation as doing to Chris.

He'll certainly need some back-up now old Muggy Mike's returned, eh?


Love Island continues on ITV2 tonight at 9pm
