Olivia was only 26 when she joined the third season of Love Island. After spending a total of 52 days in the villa, and a solid relationship with Chris since day 20, the couple ended up in third place.

Later after leaving the villa, the couple were given a spin-off series, Chris & Olivia: Crackin’ On, but that didn’t last long. Not only was she the oldest female in the villa at the time, but she also became a fan favorite. She gained a lot of popularity for her outgoing character.

After finding fame in the reality series, the star made appearances on ITV’s The Only Way Is Essex, Celebs Go Dating, and also The Games.

Reconnecting with an old flame

A year after her public split with Chris, who she had been dating for six months since leaving the villa, she got back together with Bradley. Interestingly, the Brit admitted multiple times to still having feelings for her former partner.

Olivia Attwood and Bradley were boyfriend and girlfriend, and dated before her stint in the famous villa. However, fate brought the pair back together, and they are now happier than ever despite their ups and downs.

In 2020, Olivia released her own reality series titled Olivia Meets Her Match, which dived into her romance with the football player.

Fast forward to now, Bradley popped the question during a romantic getaway in Dubai. According to the Daily Mail, Olivia and Bradley were supposed to exchange vows in 2021.

However, in late 2021, Olivia announced the couple would push their wedding date to 2023 due to covid-19 and their busy schedules. Bradley was also recovering from an injury at the time.

She told the news outlet: “My work schedule is so heavy on my shoulders with filming, the brand. We are just going to buy ourselves another year.

“We are a strong couple, and we achieve a lot in our careers, and we want to enjoy getting married.”
