They were involved in a tense love triangle prior to his dumping from the villa by the islanders last month.
But things between Olivia, Chris and Mike only go from bad to worse on Thursday night’s episode of Love Island – after she hints her feelings for former flame Mike were the reason behind her breakup with Chris.
However the busty blonde, 26, may be in for a taste of her own medicine – as footballer Mike, 24, instead sets his sights on Georgia and Tyla, to ‘mug her off’ in return.

Confused: Things between Olivia, Chris and Mike only go from bad to worse on Thursday’s Love Island – after she hints her feelings for Mike were the reason behind her split from Chris
The trio have had a tumultuous time on the show so far – with the sportsman stealing Olivia from Chris in his first recoupling, earning him the nickname ‘muggy Mike’.
After Olivia left fans disgruntled by paying both hunks affection, Mike was then dumped from the villa, allowing the blonde’s romance with Chris to blossom.
However following the dark-haired hunk’s explosive return, Olivia’s emotions become confused once again on Thursday’s episode – leading her to hint that her feelings for Mike had led to her breakup with Chris.

Heartbroken: However after Mike returned to the villa on Wednesday, Olivia went on to hint that her feelings for Mike had led to her breakup with Chris (above)
Discussing their newly-ended romance, she tells the footballer: ‘We’re from different worlds,’ before adding in a dig to Gloucestershire native Chris: ‘We clicked but in the weeks since you left, it’s been really hard.’
She later reflects on the love triangle in the Beach Hut – seemingly unable to come to a decision about her feelings.
She explains: ‘It’s the most crazy situation. Me and Mike are super compatible on paper, very similar ways of doing things, very similar life.

‘Me and Chris, nothing compatible in that sense but me and Chris have this spark. We can’t stay away from each other. Me and Mike never had that spark.’
However, she later acknowledges that the brunette was unlikely to flirt with her anyway, after she continued romance with Chris behind his back during his first stint in the villa.
She adds: ‘At the end of the day, Mike is not going to be interested in round two with me because I didn’t treat Mike perfectly when he gave me a chance.’

Blown it: However, she later acknowledged that Mike (above) is unlikely to target her this time, ‘because I didn’t treat Mike perfectly when he gave me a chance’
An idea Mike later affirms himself, stating: ‘I’m not an idiot, I’m not stupid. She played me before so she is not getting grafted on by me, fact. I’m not a mug,’ before he laughed coyly: ‘Well…’
Later chatting to fellow returning islander Sam however, Olivia admits Mike would win over Chris if she had the chance to choose a new partner.
She explains: ‘Right now, I’d pick Mike. I think we’re very compatible.
Standing his ground: Mike later affirms this idea himself, telling Sam: ‘I’m not an idiot, I’m not stupid. She played me before so she is not getting grafted on by me, fact. I’m not a mug’
‘I wish I hadn’t made Mike feel mugged by me but also, I wouldn’t know that me and Chris are so incompatible if I hadn’t tested it.’
Only intensifying her evident feelings, she later admits she would be jealous if Mike set his sights on any of the other girls.
She says in the Beach Hut: ‘There was an initial physical attraction to Mike, he’s absolutely gorgeous… It’s whether there was a spark there. Could there be a spark this time? I’m going to find out.’
However, her fears sadly start to come true later on, when Mike sets his sights on two other girls in the villa – Tyla and Georgia.

Honest: Meanwhile Georgia admits she finds Mike attractive, while he adds she has acted ‘warmly’ towards him
Explaining his need to exact revenge on Olivia, who is a self-professed ‘player’, he tells the Beach Hut: ‘One part of me is saying ‘drop her out, leave it, be straight up with her’ and the other side is saying, ‘she mugged you off, mug her off back.’
‘It’s not in my character to do that, but I feel like she might deserve it a little bit.’
He is no doubt set to ruffle feathers on the episode, as he is then seen chatting to both beauties – admitting Georgia had acted ‘warmly’ towards him, but telling Tyla that he ‘loves a party girl, like her’.
