Love Islands Olivia Hawkins makes unexpected EastEnders debut while in villa

EastEnders viewers were quick to spot current Love Island contestant Olivia Hawkins in a scene from Wednesday night's episode.

Olivia was first seen strutting into Ruby's nightclub with a friend, before having a drink in the bar while Albert Square's new hunk, Zack Hudson, went on the hunt for Whitney Dean.

Zack enters the club looking distraught as he chats to Sam Mitchell, asking if she'd seen Whitney recently. In the background, a cute brunette seems to have caught Zack's eye, he glances over and she sends back a flirty gaze.

Eagle-eyed fans could clearly see that the EastEnders extra was Olivia, especially since she's introduced herself on the hit ITV dating show as an actress.

One took to Twitter with their findings: "Not Olivia being on tonight’s EastEnders sis is getting that bag #EastEnders #LoveIsland."

"Am I bugging out or was Olivia from love island on EastEnders last night," a second suggested.

Another wrote: "Who watched today's EastEnders today? Who else clocked Olivia from love island as an extra."

A fourth suggested a more permanent role for Olivia in the show once she's done finding love on Love Island.

"Olivia looks like she should be part of the Slaters on EastEnders #LoveIsland," they put.

Another chimed in, writing: "Olivia looks like she's been in EastEnders for years #LoveIsland."

Olivia has also worked with soap bombshell, Michelle Keegan, having doubled up as her bodyguard while filming Michelle's Sky One show Brassic.

The 27-year-old has also name-dropped Jason Statham, James Bond star Daniel Craig and Emma Watson as people as people she's worked with in the past.

Alongside acting, Olivia works as a ring girl and upon entering the South African villa, singleton and boxer, Haris Namani claimed to have seen her in action during a match.
