Tristan Phipps Girlfriend
In August 2022, DailyMail reported that Tristan Phipps revealed that he is back together with his Olivia Bentley. The news outlet revealed that they were back together and also moved in together with each other. They previously dated each other between 2020 and 2021.
Tristan and Olivia shared that they rekindled their romance during a boozy night out at Raffles nightclub in London, which involved a racy lap dance. Their friend Ollie Locke and his husband Gareth showed concern after they started dating again. Livia then said, “We don’t need it.”
Tristan and Olivia have tried previously to share the same roof before, which was during the lockdown. The pair did it but struggled due to not being able to ‘escape’ one another. Tristan said, “Being almost forced to live together during the pandemic – when we were also filming the show together – meant we couldn’t learn to love each other naturally. Any normal lovers’ tiff was heightened in that environment.”
But the couple claimed this time, it’s different. Olivia said, “It’s our own terms now, so it’s been a lot more exciting. It would take a serious amount of arguing to break us up now – even if there’s always an abundance of laundry around our flat, or I leave my hair clips everywhere.”
Before their first breakup, Olivia had shared that her relationship with Tritan Phipps might see the end of Made In Chelsea. She never lived with her boyfriend before and they moved from dating to living together quickly which was “so intense in a short space of time”. Olivia said her friends in the mansion witnessed a lot of her squabbles with Tristan and felt the rest of the cast were ‘making their own judgments’.
In spite of their arguments, Olivia believed Tristan has changed her for the better as before they started dating she was good at not ‘relying’ on anyone else. The pair were friends before they got together and they would previously help each other through their old break-ups.
They announced their split in around mid-2021.
Olivia announced their split on Instagram stories. She said: “Tristan and I are no longer together and haven’t been for a while.” She then asked her fans to respect their boundaries. Olivia added, “I would greatly appreciate if people didn’t feel the need to tell me what he’s getting up to. It’s none of my business but also don’t feel like I need to hear about it. Appreciate all the love and thank you.”
After the split, they were rumored to be together again in September 2021. They were spotted taking a romantic dip together on Ollie Locke’s social media. Tristan’s representative told OK!: “After taking some time apart Tristan and Liv are back together and are happier and stronger than ever.”
Tristan has always been smitten by Olivia. The handsome reality TV star revealed that he was actually on a date with another girl when he saw Liv for the first time since their split, and upon seeing her, he knew he was still in love with her.
“I was actually on a date – or a liaison, let’s call it – at that club one night, and then Liv walked in with her friends. I hadn’t seen her in person for around five months and I just thought to myself, ‘Oh f**k, I’m still in love with her,’ Tristan explained.
OK! Magazine recently did an interview, where the couple showed around their current residence. On Tristan’s Instagram, they recently appeared together in September 2022 post and said, “Home is where the heart is.”
