Now the TV hunk has opened up about the breakdown of their relationship since they returned to normal life.

Maxwell confessed that his “attention” and “focus” was all over the place after he returned to the UK.

He confessed: “The main thing I would say with the while situation, when you’re in the villa and even just after the villa but you’re still in South Africa together, it’s a very different environment.

“All that you have to focus on in that period of time is each other and kind of just being on holiday together and it’s kind of easy to have a great time when you’re on holiday.

“But once you come back home and there are all these other things going that then take your attention and take your focus.”

Maxwell also admitted that he wasn’t sure about the “longevity” of their relationship after they big the South African villa goodbye.

On a recent podcast, he explained: “It really gives you the opportunity to look at it and think is there really longevity in this situation or is it that we’ve connected and really got on but outside in the real world we’re just not too sure if it has that same longevity to it.

In March, the Sun reported that the couple had called time on their relationship during the intense adjustment period after soaring to stardom on the show.

A source told the publication: “Although it was rumoured they’d already split they only had a proper chat about where their relationship was going yesterday, and they both agreed the writing was on the wall.

“They had fun while it lasted, and there are no hard feelings at all, but he obviously went to Mexico, and Olivia has been focusing on work projects. They have naturally drifted apart.”
