Love Island star Olivia Attwood has declared she's got "no regrets" about embarking on a doomed romance with Chris Hughes in the vila back in 2017.
The Cheshire-based babe split from her footballer boyfriend Bradley Dack shortly before entering the villa and then struck up a relationship with Chris.
The turbulent romance was very up and down, but landed the pair their own reality show called Crackin' On after they left villa.
However, the pairing didn't last and they'd split before the show had even finished filming, with Olivia going back to ex-boyfriend Bradley.
Olivia was later hit with suggestions her romance with Chris had been "faked" – claims they both denied – but she insists she has no regrets.
She told the Daily Star : "I don't regret anything I did while I was in there," said Olivia.

"I had a lot of fun, even though it looked like all I did was scream and shout. I have good memories and we laughed a lot.
"I've matured, so there's things I did four years ago that I wouldn't necessarily do now, but whatever I did do was good TV and I've had a good career from it."
The Cheshire-based babe went on to insist she thinks the 2021 series could be the raunchiest so far with sex-starved singles all looking for love.
"The new series will be the perfect escapism from everything that is going on in the world at the moment and provide some light relief,” offered Olivia.
Olivia is now a successful social media influencer and model
"We've all been locked up and everyone is looking to blow off some steam – in general this could be a really good summer to be single and enjoying yourself.
"It's possible they [the contestants] will be more wild. It'll be good for the viewers if Love Island goes that way.
"I've really missed it because it hasn't been on for so long. It was weird watching it in 2018 because it felt like seeing other people in your house, but I'm excited to watch it as a fan again this year."
Love Island returns on June 28 and, after 18 months of lockdown, Olivia reckons we could see this year’s sex-starved contestants having more nooky than ever.
Olivia has found love with fiance footballer Bradley Dack
Olivia is now engaged to Blackburn Rovers footballer Bradley – and the happy couple, who were forced to postpone their wedding this year because of the pandemic, now star together in their own reality TV show.
But the 30-year-old beauty admits she "annoys" Brad by talking about going back to the villa if there was ever a version with returning stars.
Olivia says: "If they ever did an all-stars series of Love Island I would be so jealous.
"Brad gets so annoyed when I bring it up, but I know I can't do it as I'm engaged.
Olivia and Brad are due to get married next summer
"I'd love to go back in there as somebody who isn't single and not have to be involved in the dating side of it, just to experience the villa again because it is so much fun."
Olivia and Brad has planned to get married this summer, but have now pushed back their wedding to next year due to the ongoing coronavirus restrictions.
And Olivia admits it’s been a tough time as she desperately wanted to tie the knot with Brad this summer.
"It has been challenging," revealed Olivia. "But Bradley and I made the call because everything kept changing, we decided to push IT'S BACK… so we can have the wedding we want without having to work around rule changes."

"I made a lot of mistakes during my twenties. All my relationships have been so different, but one thing I've realised getting older is that you have to put work into them and there's no getting away from that.
"But they shouldn't be so challenging that every day is difficult. With me and Brad it's easy, but I've looked back on when I was younger and all the time I spent arguing with boyfriends that weren't right for me.
"I used to meet people and fall in love with them straight away, jumping from relationship to relationship, but I now see all of this as life experience that you learn from."
"It [turning 30] felt like the end of the world because we are programmed to believe that our twenties are everything and life gets boring after that.
"But I'm happier now than I ever have been in my adult life. I know who I am, I have a great job and partner, and don't see my life slowing down any time soon."
