This year’s series of Love Island contestants have been criticised by fans for looking very similar to those who appeared in season three.
One contestant who was called out for looking like very similar to Olivia.
The former islander even took to Twitter to comment on the similarities, tweeting: “Wait my heads gone. Laura’s come in last like me, wearing my exact outfit.”
But now, Olivia has revealed what she really thinks about Laura and the comments that were made by viewers.
When asked what she thought of Laura’s hairstyle and outfits, Olivia responded: “Do you know what, when I have commented on this I have mainly been joking.
“Half the girls in the UK dress like that, so I don’t think into it too much.
“But I do think a few of the islanders have studied last year’s show and are trying to recreate things that the viewers enjoyed in the last series.”
She added: “[I] Love her. She seems very down to earth and secure in herself.”
She also spoke about the characteristics the women in the villa tend to look for in their matches, based on her own experience last year.
“Fit (obviously), a good sense of humour and loyalty! Someone who makes you feel like you’re on the same team, because that’s the only way to survive there,” she said.
Revealing the advice she would give this year’s islanders, she dished: “It sounds a bit cliché but if I could give this year’s Love Island contestants any advice, it would be to be themselves.
“When you go into a strange environment it’s easy to end up acting in a way you don’t recognise, particularly when you can’t speak to your friends and family.
“Most importantly, I’d remind them to enjoy it and make the most of every moment. It’s a scary and stressful experience, particularly at the beginning, but before you even have time to blink it will all be over!”
Olivia regularly meets up with some of the girls from her series of Love Island, in particularly Amber Davies, Montana Brown and Georgia Harrison for a night out.
She revealed that when they meet up, her go-to drink of choice is “i heart Pinot Grigio from i heart wines”.
In tonight’s episode of Love Island, viewers can expect to see Samira Mighty leave the villa and follow her heart.
It comes after Frankie Foster, the boy she was coupled up with, was dumped from the island last weekend, and Samira has been single ever since.
There will also be a recoupling, in which the girls will decide which boy they would like to be partnered with.
New girl Alexandra Cane holds all the power as Idris Virgo, Kieran Nicholls and Alex George all fight for her attention.
But who will she pick? And could it be fan favourite Dr. Alex’s time to depart?
Love Island airs tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
