Olivia Attwood fancies Eastenders villain role and wants to become next soap icon

EXCLUSIVE: Love Island beauty turned documentary presenter Olivia Attwood reckons she’d be great at being nasty on EastEnders and insists she's not a bitch in her real life

Olivia Attwood wants to be a villain on EastEnders.

The presenter reckons she’d be great at being nasty on the soap. She said: “I’d love to play a bitch, someone with big blonde hair who uses loads of hairspray. I’m not a bitch in real life but I could pretend. It would be a massive stretch for me!”

Olivia, who found fame on Love Island, is also hoping bosses would let her be just like the late Dame Barbara Windsor, who played landlady Peggy Mitchell. She added: “I’d love it if my character ran the Queen Vic and got to shout, ‘Get out of my pub!'” Olivia has no acting experience but she is confident that wouldn’t be a problem.

Olivia is currently making a string of documentaries for ITV on topics including plastic surgery and trolling. It comes after the reality TV legend admitted she wants to return to I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.

Speaking to Lorraine Kelly on her ITV show last week, Olivia said she was interested in going back on the ITV show. Competing in the 2022 edition of the show, the former TOWIE star had to pull out of the jungle shortly after entering due to health concerns.

It was later revealed that Olivia was medically fit and healthy, but bosses at the show opted to keep her out of the show. But despite her small stint in the show, Olivia said she would be up for going in again.

“At some point, I would love to return,” she said whilst on Lorraine’s show. “I feel like I owe it to everyone and that there is some unfinished business”. Opening up on how she handled leaving so early last year, Olivia also admitted she felt awful after leaving the show so early only to find out “there was nothing wrong with me”.

However, she acknowledged the importance of health and safety and said the show’s producers “were being careful”. Olivia was on Lorraine to discuss her documentary on online trolls. As a figure in the public eye, Olivia admitted she receives hate from people on a daily basis.

In the documentary, the ITVBe legend speaks to the likes of Strictly Come Dancing judge Shirley Ballas, who believed that many of these ‘trolls’ were going to commit physical harm to her. Olivia also confronts a man convicted of sending online hate to understand the reasoning behind vitriolic messages.

The 32-year-old added: “I’m not a trained actor but I’d love to do it. I’ve always been a big fan of the soaps.” A host of stars have landed roles on soaps over the past year. Former Brookside actress Claire Sweeney joined Corrie , Jade Goody’s son Bobby Brazier joined EastEnders and The Traitors star Maddy Smedley joined Hollyoaks.
