Eagle-eyed Love Island fans may recognise Love Island’s Olivia Hawkins, who has a string of on-screen appearances to her name and even appeared on Love Island back in 2019.

The stunning brunette is one of the islanders hoping to find love in the villa this winter, but she actually made a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it appearance back in season five.

Check it out here:

Olivia, a model, actor and dancer, starred in a short clip which introduced that year’s contestants and showed what they did for a living.

In the clip, Olivia could be seen walking up to Joe Garratt’s catering truck and ordering herself a butty - which she never ended up getting her hands on because he walked off holding it and took out a bite, leaving Olivia understandably annoyed.

I hope his customer service skills are a bit better in real life…

With Olivia heading into the villa, the clip has since resurfaced on TikTok and it seems as though Joe may be backing her to win.

Responding to the clip, the Love Island alum wrote: “Love to see it. She'll do great.”

So she’s managed to land one fan already.

And her short stint on Love Island season five is far from Olivia’s only screen appearance - she’s got quite an impressive resume and has even been in a James Bond flick.

Talking about her previous brushes with fame, she 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.

"I’ve also been a body double for Michelle Keegan and Emma Watson.”

Not only that, she recently appeared in an episode of EastEnders, where she could be seen in Peggy’s bar eyeing up Zack Hudson while he chatted to Sam Mitchell.

In a more low-key role in the popular soap, Olivia also acted as a body double for Shona McGarty (who plays Whitney Dean).

The actor has vowed to ‘bring fun, vibes, I’m a very confident, bubbly person…. maybe a little bit of drama’ to the villa. Sounds interesting.

But she is also ready to meet the man of her dreams and settle down.

Adding: “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.”

You can watch Olivia in action when Love Island continues on ITV2 tonight.
