“My best friend was hospitalised in Cyprus for like two weeks, we had to leave her and her dad had to come out and look after her.”

She then said that she had also overcome coronavirus, adding: “It was not fun, so I can say that I've survived Covid and swine flu.

"I dunno if that looks bad on me or good on me.”

Recently, during a pre Christmas Q and A, the star was asked why she would not be spending the festive season in Dubai like “everyone else”.

The fan was alluding to other celebrities that have fled the UK's tough restrictions to the hot country to see in the new year.

Celebrities such as Love Island stars Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury were criticised for travelling to the United Arab Emirates before Christmas alongside Maura Higgins and Chris Taylor to enjoy a holiday.

Olivia responded to the question, writing: “Well… I love Dubai… love love love it, hence why we got engaged there.

“But… it feels like the whole of the UK is there right now and I'd quite frankly rather stick pins in my eyes. Am missing my girls though xx.”
