Olivia Hawkins On Love Island
Love Island season 9 is here to warm up the winter of 2023. Once again, ten steaming hot bachelors have flown to the villa in South Africa where they will be searching for love while also traversing tons of drama. Amongst them, Olivia — the oldest from the group — surprisingly, has never been in a relationship!
“I’m 27 and I’ve never been in a relationship so I feel like now I’m really ready to settle down and hopefully find the love of my life,” she said.
Also, confident that she’ll bring a lot of character to the show, she added, “I’ll bring fun and vibes. I’m a very confident, bubbly person… maybe a little bit of drama!”
Joining Olivia for the ninth installment of Love Island were her co-stars — Tanya Manhenga, Kai Fagan, Lana Jenkins, Ron Hall, Anna-May Robey, Will Young, Shaq Muhammad, Haris Namani, and Tanyel Revan.
Fun Fact: Olivia was once in a promo video for Love Island back in 2019. Back then, she was featured in Joseph Garrett’s clip as she ordered an ice cream from him.
Olivia Hawkins Dating Status
Olivia Hawkins kept her dating life private because Love Island was still going on. But we can tell that she was “getting close” to Max Bowden before jetting off to the South African villa.
The duo even exchanged a flitty interaction on 2023 on New Year’s Day when Max liked a picture of her in a tight dress and clutching a designer bag.
A source said that Olivia “clearly fancied him”. They added, “Max and Olivia have been sharing exchanges and keeping an eye on how each other has been doing. She has been very impressed that Max showed such a keen interest in her and has been telling all her friends excitedly about it.”
For those who don’t know, Max is an EastEnders star who made his relationship with Shona McGarty IG official in August 2022. He previously also dated Roisin Buckle, the mother of his child, for a year. The duo welcomed their baby boy, Reginald Buckle, in September 2022.
But Max wasn’t the only one Olivia was interested in. Back in 2019, she also flirted with former Love Island star Jack. On a speed-dating show on YouTube, Jack tells her “You’re very, very attractive.” To which, Olivia replied: “So are you. You’ve got nice eyes.”
Overall, her ideal man is “someone who’s funny and tall”.
