Love Island fans have same reaction to Olivia ITV

Our favourite reality TV series Love Island finally returned last night (16th January) for it's ninth series. The premiere episode brought us a brand new South African villa (with three pools!), Maya Jama's presenting debut and a whole host of Islanders ready to fall in love.

Unlike in previous years, we saw the boys enter the villa first and we were introduced to Ron, Kai, Will, Haris, and Shaq. Maya entered the villa and got chatting to the boys, before introducing them to the girls Olivia, Anna-May, Tanya, Lana and Tanyel.

Following last night's episode, it appears there may already be a fan favourite. Viewers online were tweeting about their love for contestant Olivia Hawkins, who entered the villa in a pink bikini and chose to couple up with Kai, who was at that time paired up with Anna-May. However, their pairing didn't last long as Kai chose to couple with Tanyel and so Olivia was paired up with farmer Will.

So who is Olivia Hawkins, that everyone online is loving? This is everything you need to know about the ring girl.

What is Olivia Hawkin's job?

As we've learnt from her chats with Haris, 27-year-old Olivia Hawkins is a ring girl.

She's also an actor and body double, and has previously starred in a James Bond scene alongside Daniel Craig and in a movie with Jason Statham.

Over the years she's worked as a body double for Emma Watson and Michelle Keegan. Now that's pretty cool.

During her introduction on last night's episode Olivia revealed she has never been in a relationship but she's now ready to settle down.

"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."

This year, ITV announced, that as part of new duty of care guidelines, the Islanders won't have active Instagram accounts whilst they're on the show.

So don't expect any new pictures to be posted on Olivia's account whilst she's in the villa.

What have fans said about Olivia on the show so far?

Following Olivia's first appearance on Love Island (16th January) viewers have declared she has "main character energy" and compared her to last year's winner Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu.
