Chris Hughes has done some pretty dumbfounding things since becoming a reality TV star.
However, none of his actions has proved as stupid as letting a helium balloon go when it had his birthday money inside…
Chris Hughes, ladies and gentleman, he’s one of a kind.
Money in the balloon ???? I’m dead #ChrisAndOlivia

Episode two of Chris and Olivia: Crackin’ On, the spinoff show dedicated to the Love Island 2017 lovers, started in disappointing fashion for birthday boy Chris.
He woke up alone.
Following a heated argument in episode one, Olivia packed her stuff and moved into her old house in Surrey, leaving Chris alone in his luxury mansion.
Fortunately, his brother and dad came to visit him that morning, although Chris spent no time in ruining his own birthday present with an act of stupidity.

After a spot of golf, somewhere in the Cotswolds, Chris’s big brother surprised him with a special a gift.
It was even in his favourite wrapping paper!
Chris unwrapped box after box before realising his big birthday present was a balloon.
We’ve all got a joker in the family like this, right.
Brother Ben dished out the banter saying “it’s more than you got me for my birthday” before Chris, thinking the present was a joke, let go of the balloon as he got into the car.
Chris said: “I didn’t let it go, it blew out of my hand.”
As the balloon set off – perhaps destined for Olivia’s house as a reminder that it’s her boyfriend’s birthday – Chris’s dad piped up with the revelation that there was a cheque inside!
Tom added: “You were meant to pop it, there was money in there.”
Episode two ended with Chris’s dad quipping perhaps the funniest line in reality TV history.
Yep, despite a man of few words, Chris’s dad proved that he has some seriously on-point wit when needed.
