Olivia Attwood makes her Towie debut.
OLIVIA Attwood has made her Towie debut and advised pal Chloe Sims to “remove herself” from her Dan Edgar drama.
Olivia, 26, was approached by bosses to cameo on the Essex series and offer Chloe support in the wake of her new romance. Chloe’s relationship with Dan lies in tatters as rumours about his alleged infidelity spread throughout Essex. But with the hear’say about the 36-year-old’s love life dominating conversations across the different groups, Chloe loses her cool.
Viewers will see her make a public statement addressing the situation in scenes that are set to air on Sunday night.
Georgia Kousoulou continues to provide support and advice, but the drama begins to take its toll when she breaks down in front of boyfriend Tommy Mallett as she finds herself stuck in the middle of the fall out.
Olivia joins the gang to celebrate Easter and quickly finds herself immersed in the Chloe and Dan drama, as she fills Chloe in on what she’s been hearing. Olivia says: “I feel like he’s walked you down the plank, and then it’s time to jump off. You’ve jumped and he’s gone, ‘Oh actually I’m just gonna stay here for a minute and see if she swims or sinks,’ and it’s not fair.
“He seems like a really nice guy. It don’t seem like he, intentionally, would want to hurt you or anyone for that matter, but by being so cowardly he’s hurting you.” Meanwhile, Gatsby makes a play for Chloe Brockett’s mum Clare, but after setting up a date, is surprised when Clare sends someone in her place.
And weeks after tempers flared in Thailand, Sam and Shelby Tribble finally seek to clear the air.
Olivia celebrated wrapping her Towie scenes earlier this month when she went out on the town with Shelby at nightspot Sheesh Chigwell. Gatsby, Tommy, Fran Parman and Amber Turner were also there but Chloe stayed away. Chloe has been torn apart after being criticised for getting together with Dan. A source told The Sun: “Olivia formed a friendship with Chloe when they appeared on Celebs Go Dating together.
“The new series has so far proved to an emotional one for Chloe and she could really do with the additional support from Olivia, who’s never afraid to speak her mind. “Olivia has also been close friends with Shelby and Clelia for years.
“The three of them met during their time as motorsport grid girls and they’ve remained good pals ever since.” Olivia is more than used to being in the spotlight after amassing a loyal fan base following her time on Love Island.
She’s since starred in her own reality series Chris and Olivia: Crackin’ On – as well as on Celebs Go Dating. The drama continues in The Only Way Is Essex on Sunday 21st April at 9pm on ITVBe.
