Love Island’s Olivia reveals huge career move after being forced out of the villa – and it’s nothing to do with TV

LOVE Island star Olivia Hawkins has revealed she is turning her back on reality TV and concentrating on a career in acting.

The 27-year-old, who lost her place in the villa last week, exclusively told The Sun about her plans after becoming one of the most talked about contestants of all time on the ITV show.

Olivia told us:  “Before I went in I was on my acting journey. I trained in musical theatre.

“One day I’d like to go back into musical theatre and just continue with my acting. I was always going to come out and go straight back to what I was before.”

While many former Islanders go on to star in more reality TV, for example Ekin-Su on Dancing On Ice and Liam Reardon on Celebs Go Dating, Olivia has her heart set on the stage.

She added: “I did Love Island but in terms of reality. For now I just want to focus on my passion and what I’ve been doing since I was a child.”

Prior entering the villa, Olivia had already started to make a name of herself on both the big and small screen.

She appeared as a waitress in a scene alongside Daniel Craig and Ana de Armas in 007’s latest outing No Time To Die.

Olivia previously said: “I did a film with Jason Statham and had a nice 10 minute convo about life.

“I’ve been a ring girl for KSI, I played a waitress in James Bond with Daniel Craig and I’ve also been a body double for Michelle Keegan and Emma Watson.”
