The Love Island couple have continued to put on a defiant display this week, after Katie Price finally showed the “52 text messages” apparently sent to her from Chris Hughes – which he has denied ever sending.
One text allegedly shows Chris calling his girlfriend “fame hungry” and of “loving publicity”.
Explaining how their relationship has been affected by the drama, Olivia Attwood said in her new! magazine online column that the situation has “made them more of a unit”.
“Chris and me are fine; it hasn’t put a strain on us at all,” she said.
“He has been under a lot of stress but it just brought us closer together. It’s made us more of a unit.
“When these things happen in a relationship it can either put a wedge and you turn on each other or it makes you stronger. It’s made us stronger,” she added.

Olivia’s admission comes after Katie spoke out about her and Chris’ feud on This Morning.
“All of this is the most stupidest thing. I’ve been in the industry for 23 years, I’ve never had such…It’s so tit for tat,” she explained to Eamon Holmes and Ruth Langsford.
“Obviously Chris Hughes is so immature when it comes to the media and he’s obviously not media savvy.”
As Eamonn and Ruth listened, Katie asked the couple: “What did I show you before we came on air? I’m not lying.”
Confirming what she saw, Ruth commented: “You showed us a lot of texts from Chris to you on your phone.”
Clarifying that he didn’t see any inappropriate comments, Eamonn chipped in: “As a man, all I saw was a lot of texts. I didn’t see any inappropriate texts.”
As Ruth informed her husband that the issue was the fact that Chris denied messaging Katie completely, Eamonn then stated: “No there’s a lot of texts.”
