Reality TV star Olivia Attwood has said she considers it "absolutely unacceptable" for children to be invited to weddings.
Attwood said yes to fiancé Bradley Dack — a Blackburn Rovers footballer — in 2019, when he proposed during a romantic break in Dubai.
"Kids at a wedding for me is absolutely unacceptable," said Attwood, adding: "Even if I had my own children, I wouldn’t invite them."
She added: "I haven’t got a baby yet, so I don’t know that love that they talk about, but when I see the bride with like, this little thing hanging off her dress, its little grubby hands, I’m like 'what the f***?'.
"You’re wearing a Vera Wang silk dress, you put your little grubby, chicken-finger hands all over it. No way."
Attwood compared the noise of young children during the vows to the call of the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park, making her feelings very clear.
Children at weddings is certainly a hot and divisive subject, with a 2019 survey of 20,000 couples by Bridebook revealing that 55% invited children — almost an exact 50-50 split.
Attwood and Dack have had a tough path to their big day, rescheduling the wedding three times as a result of COVID-19 and Dack's recovery from a serious knee injury.
The couple briefly dated in 2015 after being introduced by mutual friends, but had split long before Attwood entered the Love Island villa in the summer of 2017.
She finished in third place on the show with Chris Hughes and dated him until 2018, but rekindled her romance with Dack shortly afterwards.
Having risen to fame on Love Island, Attwood has since appeared on shows including The Only Way is Essex and Celebs Go Dating.
