Love Island fans slam Olivia Hawkins for ‘copying’ show legend with similar traits | The Sun

LOVE ISLAND's new contestants are making themselves at home in South Africa – and now fans are getting to know them back here in the UK.

It hasn't taken long for fan favourite couples to emerge, while another already seems cursed to be the first eliminated contestant.

But then there's some that fans feel they've already seen before on the ITV2 series – particularly Olivia, who is being compared to iconic islander Maura Higgins.

Maura became beloved on the dating show for her unpredictable moves and throwing several couples into jeopardy – with Amy Hart even leaving the show when Curtis Pritchard ditched her, coupling up with Maura shortly after.

So when Olivia entered the show, and immediately stole Kai Fagan off Anna-May Robey in the first coupling up ceremony, bells started ringing.

However, it backfired when Tanyel Revan came into the picture, with Kai stepping forward for her and switching again.

She's now paired with Will Young hesitantly, after neither were left with anyone else to couple up with.

But fans think the move is reminiscent of Maura, who wasn't afraid to chat to the other girls' partners in order to decide what she wanted.

"Olivia giving me Maura vibes," one fan wrote, while another agreed and added: "I feel like she’ll be that girl that everyone hates at first and then loves.

However, others think it's intentional and said: "I think Olivia is just trying to be like Maura.
