Since returning home, the couple have stayed strong despite some whispers claiming their relationship is on the rocks. On Friday, Alex defended his romance with Olivia with a 'to the point' Twitter message.

Alex wrote: "People that doubted me and Olivia." He added two 'crying with laughter' emojis and one of a middle finger. That told them!

In fact, things are so series between the pair that Alex is moving in with Olivia in her home county of Essex.

This came after Olivia shared a lengthy post on Instagram about her feelings for her man.

She had said: "My life has done a 360 and I cannot be more appreciative for what I have achieved and also the opportunities that have now been presented to me. All you lovely gals and guys who support me, you don't understand how much I truly love reading your comments and they always make everything worthwhile.

"I am an emotional little soul as you all know; I found the love of my life and I also found a whole new life of change and hard moments. Truly know the hard moments will blossom into the best memories and just need to keep going and keep being strong for myself, my friends, my family and my boyfriend. Thank you so much for your continued support and amazing comments. You're the ones keeping me sane."
