OLIVIA Attwood has revealed boyfriend Bradley Dack showed up at her flat the night before she was due to leave to appear on Love Island.
The reality star shot to fame on the 2017 series of the ITV2 dating show, where she won fans and broke hearts with her stunning looks and hilarious personality.
Olivia, 29, who is engaged to footballer Bradley Dack, 26, admitted that just before she was due to leave for the show her then ex turned up at her flat.
Talking on PrettyLittleThing’s Behind Closed Doors podcast, Olivia divulged she had been dating Bradley on and off for a while but he didn’t want to ‘commit’ at the time.
However, the night before she left to star on the ITV2 dating show, she says he turned up at the last moment.
Olivia gossiped: “I told him, ‘I said this is what’s happening’ and he was just silent on the phone and I was like, ‘You didn’t wanna commit or whatever so this is what it is’.
“Anyway I flew back from Germany and I literally had a few days to pack, my best friend was coming to my house and was helping me pack and I was getting picked up by a chaperone from the show at 5am in the morning.
“He [Bradley] turned up at my flat at midnight the night before I left. He’d had like a penny drop moment.”
However, Bradley clearly didn’t do enough to stop Olivia from going on Love Island and good job – as Olivia says she found doing the show “therapeutic” and she was “unapologetically myself”.
She told the podcast: “What I found from doing Love Island weirdly, because ultimately you’d think it would have the opposite effect.
“I think, previous to that I’d always used all my relationships and the men in my life like a crutch so I felt beautiful when they told me I was beautiful, I thought I was funny when they told me I was funny.
“What Love Island taught me is that I don’t need to be someone else to tell me that, I just need to like myself and be confident in who I am and that’s enough. On Love Island I was so unfiltered, I was unapologetically myself.”
Olivia added: “For the first time I think in ages in a weird way, because you think being on national TV it would have the opposite effect but weirdly I just kind of was in the villa with no outside influence.”
The bombshell is now starring in her new ITVBe reality show ‘Olivia Meets Her Match with Bradley,’ which will follow the couple as they plan their wedding and buy their first home in Cheshire.
