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).

Ergh. I'd rather have Jonny back than Muggy Mike and Liv hurting my boy Chris 🙄✋🏽— Charlotte Nicholls (@Char_Nicholls6) July 12, 2017
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.
Olivia keeps sacking Chris off expecting him to come begging for her back and when he doesn't she gets angry. Worst way a girl can be

In fact, some viewers were worried about what the whole situation as doing to Chris.
I worry that Olivia's behaviour is so toxic and actually may affect Chris in later relationships. It's awful to watch. #LoveIsland— Em Sheldon (@emshelx) July 12, 2017
Can love island get Chris' mum in so she can give him a cuddle and tell him to get away from Liv☹️☹️☹️☹️

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