Who is Olivia Attwood and where is she from?

Olivia was a contestant on reality ITV2 romance show Love Island – she’s 28 years old and hails from Surrey.

Like most contestants on the show, she’s no stranger to modelling and her good looks certainly caught the eye of the boys on the show.

She has previously competed in pageants, including a “Tropic Beauty” contest, representing London.

Before taking part in the 2017 series of Love Island, Olivia described her profession as being a Motorsport Grid Girl.

Working around noisy racetracks might be one reason that Olivia likes “loudmouth” men – she must be used to loud noises.

Since leaving Love Island she has had her own show Crackin’ On, and has raked in £900,000.

The Sun exclusively revealed Olivia has been in talks with ITV bosses about joining I’m A Celebrity 2018.

What happened to Olivia on Love Island?

As well as looking for love, Olivia said she was taking part on the ITV2 show “For the experience”.

She explained: “This is me on my own. I want the life experience to look back on.”

Well, she certainly had that!

Initially coupled up with Sam Gowland, she then moved onto Chris Hughes before getting into a love triangle with him and Muggy Mike.

Chris won her affections and the pair enjoyed a rollercoaster of a relationship.

They argued and made up more times than we can count – but ended up in the final and in love, as boyfriend and girlfriend.

The couple came in third place, and managed to get through their exit interview with Caroline Flack without an argument!

Since leaving the villa, Olivia opened up about being trolled about her appearance during an emotional interview with The Sun Online.

Are Chris Hughes and Olivia Attwood still together?

The couple looked loved up when they first left the villa back in 2017.

However, on November 28, 2017 The Sun reported how Chris had been caught canoodling with another woman.

Olivia was reportedly a “complete mess” after receiving messages from several party-goers who claim they saw Chris kiss a mystery woman during a night out.

Olivia was due to attend a beauty awards show hosted by OK! magazine with boyfriend Chris – but couldn’t face the bash after footage of him with his hands around another woman was revealed by The Sun’s Bizarre column.

A source close to the couple said: “Olivia feels extremely humiliated by the whole thing. She couldn’t even face going out last night.”

Appearing on Loose Women on February 16, 2018, Olivia said the rumours were true and the pair had split.

Olivia then moved on to date her former boyfriend and footballer Bradley Dack who Chris claimed she was dating while they were still together.

Will Olivia be on Celebs Go Dating?

On July 23, 2018, The Sun Online exclusively revealed Olivia had signed up for Celebs Go Dating.

She was then unveiled as part of the official line up alongside Towie star Chloe Sims and Sugababes singer Mutya Buena.

Speaking about taking part, Olivia said: “To say I’m excited and scared to the join the Celebs Go Dating agency is an understatement!

“I’m known as a wild child, party girl so I’m sure I’ll keep Nadia and Paul on their toes.”
