The Rise To Fame Of Love Island’s Olivia Attwood

Let’s take a look at all the salacious moments in the life of Love Island star Olivia Attwood as we prepare for the fifth series.

Muscular men, saucy sex and provocative challenges… it can only mean one thing. (It’s not our love life.) It’s Love Island!

With the countdown on to series five, we thought we’d take a gander at one of our fave contestants Olivia Attwood following her rise to fame. Who was she before the show? More importantly, what is she up to now?

Spoiler: She had a shocking previous career as a grid girl!

Fighting Fit As A Teenage Athlete

This girl has always had fighting spirit, being a keen runner when she was a teenager.

Her sister posted this pic with the caption:

‘Why is Chris and Olivia’s relationship under constant spotlight, episode after episode?

‘All this distress deliberately triggered for maximum exposure effect over jest between a group of girls, are all the other couples not worth testing?’

2015 – She’s A MASSIVE Traveller

Scrolling down her Instagram feed it seems that Olivia is rarely in her home town as her location tags boast Barcelona, Dubai and Australia!

2017 – Olivia Was In a FIVE-Year Relationship Before Love Island

Sadly, it wasn’t Olivia who did the dumping but it seems like it was the best thing that could have happened to her.

Olivia said:

“He did change his mind and try to get me back but I was done then. I don’t think he’d watch me on this show – he’d find it too hard. Wouldn’t get back with him, it’s done,

“I try not to take any rubbish from anyone so I think boys end up saying ‘she’s a player’ because they’ve not had their way with me.”

2017 – She Was Slated For Flashing Her Nips And Wearing White To A Wedding

Her 1.4 million followers were less than impressed with her choice of outfit as it accentuated her nips which many deemed rather inappropriate for a wedding.

Whilst it’s traditional for wedding guests to avoid wearing white to a wedding, is it still the case in this day and age?

Olivia Attwood And Bradley Break-Up…

On again, off again. Will they? Won’t they? It’s hard to keep up with the drama of this couple… Olivia posted an Instagram story claiming:

“Just to put any speculation to bed. Brad and I are no longer in a relationship.”

Just two days later, the love birds were back together. A source revealed:

“A few days have gone by and they’ve managed to resolve their issues – they’re still living together and everything has gone back to normal. ‘Olivia made a mistake by announcing their breakup too soon before they’d both had a chance to calm down.”

Olivia Speaks Out Over Death Of Mike Thalassitis

After the tragic passing of Mike, many accused the bosses of failing to look after the stars of the show, especially as his death followed that of Sophie Gradon.

Olivia defended the show, claiming that the experience had actually helped her.

She said:

“People are angry and they want someone to blame but Mike was in turmoil and a lot of his problems weren’t to do with Love Island at all.

“Love Island saved me. I got a lot of heat in the villa for the way I was but after I came out so many girls said how they related to me.

“I finally found this sense of self-acceptance that I never had before.”
