Love Island star Olivia Hawkins has already appeared on the show – back in series 5

Love Island's Olivia Hawkins quickly made her presence known in the villa, nabbing Kai from Anna-May moments after her entrance, but it's now been revealed that the ring girl has history with the programme.

Olivia is also an actress and recently appeared momentarily in the James Bond movie No Time To Die, and that's not her only acting credit, as the 27 year old also featured in Love Island's opening montage back in 2019.

At the star of each series of the ITV2 dating show a montage is shown of the new islanders leaving their day jobs, with Olivia appearing in Joe Garratt's clip.

The short video sees Olivia ordering an ice cream from Joe, only for him to quickly leave his ice cream truck and head off to Love Island villa instead.

One eagle-eyed viewer shared the clip on TikTok, sending fans into a frenzy, with one joking: "She’s been grafting to get on this show."

Another added: "I knew I recognised her."

Joe himself also commented on the video, sharing his support for the new islander as he wrote: "Love to see it. She’ll do great."

Olivia's acting career has seen her appear in EastEnders and work as a body double for actress Michelle Keegan.

Opening up about her career before entering the villa, the ring girl and actress discussed rubbing shoulders with some A-list stars.

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

And Olivia, who is currently coupled up with bombshell Tom, isn't the only villa resident to have a rather star-studded past, with fellow new islander celebrity make-up artist Lana Jenkins having worked with a number of famous faces.

Lana has developed a close friendship with Michelle Keegan, who has shared support for her pal's Love island stint, posting on Instagram: "So our girl Lana is going into the @loveisland villa. Genuinely one of the nicest girls you’ll ever meet. Go and smash it darlin."

Michelle isn’t her only showbiz connection either, as Lana previously dated Hollyoaks hunk Owen Warner in 2020, and even had a brush with fame herself when she worked as an extra on ITV comedy Benidorm at the tender age of six years old.
