Is she going to be a series regular on TOWIE?

So far, nothing has been confirmed about Olivia’s longevity on TOWIE.

As a good friend of Chloe Sims, Shelby Tribble and Clelia Theodorou, it feels like Olivia will be popping up more than once on TOWIE.

However, as it stands it is not known whether she will be joining as a permanent cast member or just as a recurring guest.
