We're just days away from our favourite reality series Love Island returning (not like we've been counting down the days or anything) on 16th January. The new series will see a brand new South African villa (it's stunning btw), Maya Jama's debut as presenter and a whole new group of Islanders ready to fall head over heels in love. Except, it turns out one of the new cast members has already been on the show before, well sort of.

27-year-old Olivia Hawkins will make her arrival in the Love Island villa on Monday night, however, a TikToker has spotted that Olivia has actually already appeared in a previous series, albeit briefly.

At the start of every season there's a video of the Islanders leaving their jobs to head to the villa. In 2019 for season 5 Olivia appears in a scene with Joe Garratt, where she orders an ice cream from him, before he abandons his ice cream truck to go to the villa.

It's a blink or you'll miss it moment, but Love Island fans are in shock over her previous appearance on the show. With one TikToker commenting: "THATS CRAZYYYY" and another saying: "OMG WHAT."

Olivia is a ring girl and actor from Brighton. She's previously appeared in a James Bond scene alongside Daniel Craig, done a film with Jason Statham and has worked as the body double for Emma Watson and Michelle Keegan. Now, that's pretty cool.

Olivia will be one of 10 new arrivals in the Love Island villa, including TikTok famous farmer Will Young, who has over 1 million followers on TikTok.

Love Island returns to ITV2 next Monday 16th January at 9pm with Maya Jama presenting the show for the first time, and we cannot wait.

We never thought we'd say this, but can Monday hurry up please?
