Olivia Hawkins’ Love Island drama from secret friendship with Zara to Tanyel feud

Series nine of winter Love Island kicked off back in January, with Maya Jama making her debut as the new presenter taking over from Laura Whitmore.

So far, things have been well and truly heating up, we’ve had the return of Casa Amor and now movie night is here to shake things up.

One girl that’s certainly made her mark is Olivia Hawkins.

The 27 year old ring girl from Brighton, who also works as Michelle Keegan’s body double, was one of the first Islanders to step into the gorgeous South African villa a month ago.

From day one she already caused plenty of drama following her choice to steal Kai Fagan from Anna-May Robey when it came to the initial recoupling.

The move backfired after Kai stepped forward for Tanyel Revan and Olivia was left to couple up with farmer Will Young after they were the only two left single.

She soon moved on with salesman Haris Namani before he was forced to say goodbye during a shocking double eviction.

Haris, 21, actually admitted that he knew about Liv before the show, giggling: “I think I’ve come across your social media,” while Maya questioned him: “Have you been in her DMs, Haris?”

Olivia then coupled up with bombshell Tom Clare but she was left seething when he shared a secret kiss with Ellie Spence.

After Tanyel and Kai grew apart, Olivia then recoupled up with him and the two grew closer before the girls were whisked away to Casa Amor.

But when she got there, she savagely forgot his name.

One of the bombshells asked the group: “Which ones of you are ‘wifed off’ already then?”

“I’ve forgotten his name…” Olivia replies before arguing that it would take "a lot" for her head to be turned.

But after a couple of days away from Kai, Olivia then chose to couple up with Maxwell and bring him back into the main villa.

Although Kai was relieved to see Olivia walk in with another man on her arm, after he coupled up with social worker Sanam, the pair quickly became embroiled in a very heated argument.

Olivia told Kai: “It’s very telling, it’s very telling. Can’t say I’m shocked. Miss me already, clearly not enough.”

Away from the romance, Olivia also had some drama with the other girls.

Tensions began brewing between Liv and Zara Lackenby-Brown when Zara said that Olivia was the most two-faced Islander as part of a game.

While the other Islanders were left in hysterics over the tensions, Olivia was clearly fuming before saying in the Beach Hut that she felt "humiliated."

Eagled-eyed viewers thought that Olivia knew Zara before the two of them went into the villa after it appeared that they had been commenting on each other’s Instagram posts months before the show.

Despite neither women commenting on the fact they had history on the show, on one picture of Zara, dating back 139 weeks ago, which would have been May 2020, Olivia commented with: “Fave photo of you,” to which Zara replied: “My babes”.

Since leaving the show, Tanyel has also revealed that there were some unaired arguments between her and Olivia.

Opening up on her experience on the ITV dating show on Looking for Lewys' YouTube channel, she said it felt like there had been a divide in the hose between the girls.

She said: “ I started to feel that she had an issue with me and I started to hear that she kept saying things about me.

“"There was a few occasions where I actually pulled her up and I was actually like, a lot more like no you're taking the p*** now.

"I've heard you speaking about me a few times. You're telling me you're straight then why are you talking about me behind my back for?"

On Thursday's episode she also lashed out with Ron Hall, labelling him as a "fake friend."

As the movie night drama continued, Olivia saw clips of Ron egging on Kai to explore other connections in the villa. He also made remarks about her to the boys saying she "couldn't get" Tom Clare.

“I already knew he was a fake friend. I don’t need him,” Olivia loudly told the girls.
