Why has Olivia been filming on TOWIE?

After a dramatic start to series 24, which revolved around a blossoming romance between Chloe Sims and Dan Edgar, Olivia will be roped in to support Chloe.

As the pair are real-life pals, it makes sense that Olivia is joining at this point.

A source told The Sun:

The new series has so far proved to an emotional one for Chloe and she could really do with the additional support from Olivia, who’s never afraid to speak her mind.

Will Olivia join the TOWIE family for good?

Nothing has been confirmed as of yet.

But she not only knows Chloe well but has been mates with Shelby and Clelia for years, and so is a natural fit for the show.

Olivia even went out to celebrate and party with her Essex cast mates at Sheesh Chigwell after their first day of filming!

It is unclear whether Olivia will be joining as a permanent cast member or even as a recurring guest. But fingers crossed she’ll return!
