Speaking about self isolation, Olivia said, 'The only thing I can compare this to is Love Island.'

She explained, 'We were more contained, there was more control.'

'In the villa, you couldn't call anyone or go for a walk. If anything, it was worse!'

 

She went on, 'Obviously there was a big cast and they were constantly playing games with us so we never really got the chance to be bored.'

'It was hot and there was a swimming pool, but we were contained.'

Olivia pointed out, 'If anything, it was worse because I couldn't speak to any of my family or go on my phone.'

She said, 'Right now I can speak to my genuine friends and I'm not just stuck with a bunch of strangers.'

'But with coronavirus, you can walk outside your front door as long as you're in the guidelines.'

Olivia continued, 'You can make whatever food you want and have a glass of wine.'

'Whereas in Love Island you ate when you were told to eat and you had minimal alcohol. '

'Not to mention the whole country was watching and judging you!'

Staying positive

Despite her nerves, the reality star is trying to remain positive.

She said she's glad that she's been financially sensible, 'I've saved my money, I have a massive tax bill coming.'

'It's times like these you can really find yourself stuck. Our industry is so unpredictable anyway.'

She said, 'Every six months since Love Island that I'm still working and being contracted I am so grateful because I never expected it.'

'I've always made sure I've got money for my tax and money for my bills, but I know a lot of people in my industry that haven't been as cautious. It's a scary time.'

Olivia said she's going to use this time to not wear any makeup and to let her skin breathe.

'I'm going to take my extensions out and give my hair some recovering time.'

'It's a good time to let all the things that you usually have to keep on top of, especially in our industry, let go and recover.'
