Who is Olivia Attwood, and where did the reality TV personality get her name?

Olivia Attwood's: Getting Filthy Rich is in its second season, and fans are gearing up for Olivia Marries Her Match. But you might recall that the blonde bombshell (hint, hint) got her start on a very iconic and controversial dating show. (You know the one!) 

From her career to her love life and everything in between, allow us to get you up to speed on all things Olivia.

Who is Olivia Attwood and how did she get famous?

While you may know her from Celebs Go Dating, the Only Way Is Essex, or just by her new sex docu-series—Olivia found fame on the one, the only—Love Island.

Yes indeed, Olivia starred in season three of Love Island (arguably one of the best Love Island seasons to date.) She made it to the final with her couple Chris Hughes, who alone was responsible for some of the most memorable Love Island moments and best memes. They came in third place, after being beaten to the win by Kem and Amber.

For TikTok fans out there, Chris and Liv are also the origins of the ‘Sit back down—I’m sat’ sound, which came from a particularly hilarious villa moment. See below.

Before the pair went their separate ways after leaving the villa, they also had a spin-off series, Chris & Olivia: Crackin' On—with Olivia then going on to guest star on the likes of Lorraine and a number of other notable TV shows. Now of course she’s back on ITV2 with her hit Getting Filthy Rich series...and a new partner. (More on that in a sec.) 

'Olivia Attwood: Getting Filthy Rich'

For those who don’t know Olivia’s new series Getting Filthy Rich explores the world of OnlyFans and takes an in-depth look at the lesser-known sides of selling sex and the sex industry in general. Season 2 delves deep into taboo topics, such as sex toys and how intimacy plays out on TikTok, and takes things up a notch, considering the host decided to step into the sex workers' shoes by performing her own strip routine in a club.

"Are people just gonna judge me, are they gonna think this or think that? But how can I say that I'm immersed in this world if I don't put my money where my mouth is and I don’t actually strip," she told The Sun. "I basically dance in a club full of customers—I don't get fully nude, obviously, but as good as."

'Olivia Marries Her Match'

Fans will be eager to learn how to watch Olivia Marries Her Match, an offshoot of her 2020 series, Olivia Meets Her Match. (Luckily, we have all the details!) It promises to follow the reality star as she prepares to say "I do" to Bradley Dack, a midfielder football player.

Amanda Stavri, ITV’s commissioning said in a statement: “Olivia is back with her charm, wit and 'tell it how it is' personality to our screens once again, as we follow the lead up to her big day, as well as having access-all areas to the wedding.”

What is Olivia's net worth?

According to the Tab, Olivia is one of the richest ever Love Islanders with a net worth roughly around £1.2 million. 

Olivia Attwood partner: who is she tied to?

Olivia found love after Love Island with footballer Bradley Dack. The pair are now engaged after he popped the question during a trip to Dubai in 2019 but have sadly been forced to postpone their nuptials twice due to clashing work schedules and pandemic guidelines. They promised each other forever at the Bulgari Hotel in London's Knightsbridge in June 2023. 

One thing's for sure, there's no slowing down for this ITV star. She will also be working on a docu-series about cosmetic surgery (details are scare at the time of publication) but she's hoping to keep her fanbase up to date on this new chapter of her life. 

"I’d like Olivia Meets Her Match to continue for as long as possible," she told tHeat World. "We’ve got a loyal fan base. Those viewers have been with me since Love Island. I’d like them to follow me as my life moves on."
