Olivia Attwood reveals she would like a role in EastEnders or chance to present Love Island

She shot to fame after appearing on Love Island in 2017. 

Now Olivia Attwood has revealed she’d like to return to the show, but as the presenter. 

The reality star admitted she’d like to take over Laura Whitmore‘s hosting gig, and also has her eye on a role in EastEnders.   

New move? Olivia Attwood, 30, has her sights on another career change with a role in EastEnders or even the chance to present Love Island

Speaking to The Sun, Olivia confessed: ‘I’d definitely love to step into Laura’s shoes if she’s on maternity leave again’.

Laura welcomed a baby girl with husband and Love Island voiceover presenter Iain Stirling in March. 

Olivia went on to say she could see herself behind of the famous Queen Vic after her fiancé Bradley Dack, 27, told her she would ‘just be playing herself’.

She mused: ‘I’d also like an acting role. I think I would be great on EastEnders. I can see myself behind the bar at the Queen Vic.

‘Brad’s like, “Liv, it’s like you’re on EastEnders most of the time. You’d just be playing yourself”‘. 

It comes after another Love Island star, Dani Dyer, 24, appeared in an episode of the soap alongside her father Danny Dyer, who plays Mick Carter in the show. 

In the episode she portrayed a cabbie named Jeanette who picks up Mick Carter (Danny) on his way to wife Linda’s baby scan.

For now, Olivia is kept busy filming her ITVBe reality show, Olivia Meets Her Match, and recently spoke about her hectic schedule.  

Not only did she and her partner move into a new home (which is still undergoing renovations) but they also welcomed rescue pup Lola into the family, and athlete Bradley suffered a knee injury in March.

Chaos aside, Olivia insisted she’s having the best time working on the show.

‘It’s going really well,’ she told MailOnline. ‘This series has been so crazy for us. We moved, we got Lola, then Brad got injured again, so it’s definitely been full on.’

When asked whether she thinks any of her former The Only Way Is Essex co-stars might feel a little jealous that she’s now starring in a reality show of her very own, the star insisted they’ve been supportive.

‘On the whole, most of them – the ones I’m close to – have been so supportive and [are] always retweeting, talking about the show and messaging me and it’s really, really nice to see.’  

Olivia then quipped: A few of them weren’t a fan of me no matter what I was doing.’

Asked where she sees herself in five years’ time, Olivia joked: ‘I’d like to have finished renovating this house.’

On a more serious note, she added: ‘I would hope that Olivia’s Met Her Match is still going and it’s become a staple series that’s reoccurring and grown into its own.

‘I’d love to do more around ADHD awareness and work with charities on that front, and the same with The Pact Project with rescue dogs.’
