Love Island star Olivia Hawkins has a bit of history with the show.

The star made her full debut as a contestant on the ITV2 series earlier this week for its latest series, though an old clip has resurfaced from the 2019 series that features a blink-and-you'll miss it appearance from her.

Olivia appeared in a VT for contestant Joe Garratt that year, where she is seen flirting with him at his food truck.

As well as the previous series, Olivia appeared in a recent episode of EastEnders, seen during a scene where Zack Hudson walks into Peggy's bar following his recent HIV diagnosis.

The star has also done previous work on the soap as a double for Whitney Dean, recently telling The Sun: "Well funnily enough I actually did doubling for Whitney [Dean] in one of the New Year's episodes.

"So 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."
