Episode two of Chris & Olivia: Crackin’ On proved even more toxic than the last, with Chris Hughes and Olivia Attwood steamrolling into a brutal row.
The Love Island contestants spinoff show started in typically shocking fashion, with Chris waking up alone on his 25th birthday before a romantic trip to Amsterdam turned horribly sour.
It was a 45-minute trailer exposing everything wrong with their relationship . . .
Didn't watch Love Island but omg these two are vile together! Only after 6 months of being together and already at each other every day?! Exhausting much? #ChrisAndOlivia

Happy Birthday, Buddy
Chris woke up alone on his birthday morning, with GF Olivia sleeping down the road at her own place, following a heated argument in episode one.
Instead of waking up to presents and breakfast in bed, Chris waited around for his older brother and dad to turn up so they could take him out to the Cotswolds for a few rounds of golf.
Needless to say, it was a pretty anticlimax first birthday for Chris and Liv as a couple.
Surprise – Let’s Argue
Later in the episode, things did pick up for Chirs, as Olivia threw him a surprise party.
Although, it was push and go as to whether Liv was going to go ahead with her plan.
In fact, Chris can count himself lucky that he was even allowed to age by 12 months . . .
Naturally, country bumpkin Chris lapped up the farm-themed birthday with all of his friends and family turning up for the surprise.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Chris and Liv party without some drama, though.
Having not talked to each other since the heated row that forced Olivia to temporarily move out, the pair had to quench their thirst for a row in front of all the guests.
Although it was obvious their argument hadn’t been put to bed, the couple convinced themselves off-camera that the best plan of action was to sweep their problems under the carpet and to make “another” fresh start.
A Clean Slate . . .
Clean slate number 18 lasted all of a few days before it was well and truly smashed to pieces.
After Olivia had enjoyed a boozy weekend in Manchester with her gal-pals, Chris was left in anger after videos emerged of Liv apparently “groping” and “holding hands” with different men as she partied.
The pair decided to have their explosive row while on the way to the airport, with Chris taking his turn to play the role of the villain, shouting and screaming obscenities at his girlfriend.
#ChrisAndOlivia is so hard to watch ? I couldn't be in a relationship with a daily argument let alone what they have ?

The scene fully exposed just how their toxic relationship was, with Chris storming out of the car, shouting at the driver to let him out before shrieking back to Olivia saying “you’re a f*cking arsehole”.
Can’t imagine how awkward the taxi driver felt . . .
Naturally, things were patched up between the pair later in the episode, although audiences were left simply exhausted by Chris and Olivia’s relationship.
WOW THEIR ARGUMENTS ARE SO EXPLOSIVE. They shouldn't even be together ?? #ChrisAndOlivia
