Love Island’s Olivia has been in EastEnders again this week, and I’m obsessed

She really does work hard!

Last week, Olivia from Love Island 2023 made a shock cameo in EastEnders, all whilst she was in the South Africa villa. And now, she’s appeared once again as an extra in the soap – I’m living for this.

Following on from her appearance last week, Olivia has been on the show again. This time, she can be seen shopping at the clothes stall, alongside Whitney Dean.

Last week, Olivia made a fleeting appearance at the end of Wednesday’s episode of the soap. She was seen side-eyeing Sam Mitchell towards the end of the episode, and people who caught it went mad for it. One wrote: “Not me watching tonight’s EastEnders on iPlayer and Olivia from Love Island pops up as an extra.”

Love Island has confirmed it is Olivia on our soap screens, and she filmed scenes as an extra ahead of appearing in the South Africa villa.

Speaking ahead of her time in the villa, the actress did say she has a connection to Albert Square already. “I actually did [body] doubling for Whitney for one of the new year’s episodes,” she said, before admitting a role on the soap would be something she’d be up for. “So yeah, that would be a very full circle moment to go on and be one of the characters, even if it was just a drop in.”

Love Island 2023 continues at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX. For all the latest Love Island news and gossip and for the best memes and quizzes, like The Holy Church of Love Island on Facebook.
