We don’t mean to alarm you but there’s a chance that Love Island favourites Chris Hughes and Olivia Attwood knew each other before heading into the Love Island villa. 

Fans have spotted a huge clue on Instagram and are basically losing it all over social media.

Snaps on Instagram show Chris and Olivia have a mutual friend who they were both hanging out with before meeting on the show.

The couple were recently seen posing for a photo with one of Chris’ longtime friends, George Ray. It has since emerged that Olivia has uploaded photos in the past of her and George too!


So good to catch up with my life-longs, been way too long! Miss you both! #powerfulpeople @georgeray5 @georgycoops

But now fans are convinced that the pals go way back as Olivia was seen posing with George back in January 2016 on a night out in Manchester.

All of this had led fans to ask the question: Did Chris and Olivia know each other before ‘meeting’ in the villa?

Remember when this happened on the show?
