Who is Olivia Attwood and where is she from?

Olivia was a British contestant on reality ITV2 romance show Love Island.

She is 26 years old (at the time of the show airing in the UK) and hails from Surrey.

Like most contestants on the show she’s no stranger to modelling and her good looks have 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 race tracks might be one reason that Olivia likes “loudmouth” men – she must be used to loud noises.

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 has 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.

Have Olivia Attwood and Chris Hughes split up?

Chris reportedly “dumped” Olivia after she was seen getting close to Blackburn Rovers player Bradley Dack.

A close pal of Chris’s told The Sun Online that he is “furious and heartbroken” after seeing pictures of Olivia all over the footballer.

But in true reality star style, he had a change of heart and they are “back on” – just hours before their first big money magazine deal hit the shelves where they insisted they are “moving in together” and “getting married”.

The Sun then reported Olivia had fled the country after an explosive row between the pair.

The blonde beauty was forced to fly abroad to get away from him after becoming disturbed by his rage towards her.

They are now “reevaluating their future together” after having a huge row at Chris and Kem’s first performance of their new single Little Bit Leave It last week.

However, after spending time away from each other and Olivia travelling abroad, the pair have confirmed that they ARE still together with loved-up Instagram posts.

Was Olivia Attwood famous before she appeared on Love Island?

Olivia has done some modelling work in the past – which might make her familiar to some TV fans.

She’s also represented London in a beauty pageant in Las Vegas, earning the title Miss London, England.

Asked what her claim to fame would be, the reality hopeful said: “Probably the modelling that I have done – some of the fashion brands I’ve worked for have big followings.”

How do I apply for Love Island 2018?

Applications are already being taken for Love Island 2018 via this website.

The application form reads: “ITV2 are looking for vibrant singles from across the UK who want to head to the sun, in search of a summer of love.

“The chosen cast will spend time in a luxury villa, getting to know one another – but to remain in paradise they must win the hearts of the public who ultimately decide who stays on Love Island.”

The site doesn’t say at the moment when the series will be filmed but asks that applicants are available from May to July 2018.
