Olivia Attwood has been confirmed as the first Love Islander to camp in the jungle for I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!.

The 31-year-old was spotted landing at Brisbane Airport for the long-running reality series presented by Ant and Dec, which is set to return to our screens in a few weeks.

While Olivia and radio presenter Chris Moyles are the only confirmed celebrities so far, this year’s list of rumors includes the likes of English lioness Jill Scott and Boy George, who is believed to be the highest-paid campmate of all the time.

Other stars believed to be about to get acquainted with all sorts of creepy critters as they take on the bushtucker trials are comedian Seann Walsh and Mike Tindall, who is believed to be the first-ever royal campmate.

Love Island star turned documentarian Olivia Attwood shot to fame after appearing on the ITV reality dating series.

Since then, she has made regular appearances on The Only Way Is Essex, having joined the show in 2019.

She has also starred in Celebs Go Dating as well as ITV’s The Games.

In 2020, Olivia started her own reality series called Olivia Meets Her Match, which followed her life until she got engaged to her fiancé, and earlier this year released docuseries Getting Filthy Rich, which explored topics covering OnlyFans and Camgirls, dipped into the world of porn.

When was she on Love Island?

Olivia appeared in the third series of Love Island, in 2017.

During her stint on the ITV reality series, she was paired with Chris Hughes, but the pair split seven months after leaving the villa, following their own spin-off series Christ & Olivia: Crackin’ On.

Does she have a boyfriend?

Olivia is engaged to footballer fiancé Bradley Dack and recently admitted she will be missing ‘the s**ging’ during his four week absence.

The couple got engaged in 2019 during a trip to Dubai, but had to postpone their wedding due to Covid-19.

It’s been a pretty tough road for Olivia and Bradley, who dated before they shot to fame on ITV’s Love Island in 2017.

They have since broken up several times, most recently in April when Olivia confirmed their split on her Instagram Stories, only to reconcile with the footballer two days later.

The start date for the new series has yet to be confirmed, but was reportedly revealed on Sunday, November 6.

The series will return to Australia for the first time since 2019 as the show was brought forward due to the Qatar World Cup, which kicks off on November 20, reports The Sun.

An ITV spokesperson said: ‘We will announce the start date for the new series of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! on time.’
