Who is Olivia Buckland? Love Island contestant engaged to Alex Bowen

Olivia Buckland rose to fame on Love island in 2016 after finding love and becoming engaged to fellow contestant Alex Bowen [Wenn]

Olivia Buckland is one of the biggest stars to come out of Love Island last year.

The 2016 contestant quickly became a favourite on the ITV2 show, and won us all over when she genuinely found love.

The tattooed beauty is now engaged thanks to the show, and is in the midst of planning a wedding to fellow Love Island beau Alex Bowen for September 2018.

But what else do you need to know about the fashion and beauty icon?

Olivia was one of the original Islanders last year.

Inside the villa, she had a bit of a tough time at first but eventually hit it off with scaffolder Alex Bowen.

The couple, who became engaged to wed in December 2016, came second on the ITV dating show.

Although close pals Nathan Massey and Cara De La Hoyde were crowned the winners, the happy couple have gained a far greater prize over the year since the show, including many fashion collaborations with the likes of Quiz clothing and other TV gigs such as This Morning and Say Yes To The Dress.

The blonde beauty is just 23 years old.

Like so many of the villa residents, Olivia is from Essex. Which might explain that strange TOWIE and Love Island connection…

Before Alex Bowen’s fiancée rose to fame on the show, she worked as a model.

The beauty became instantly rememberable in the Spanish villa thanks to her many tattoos.

Notable, Olivia has the sock and buskin theatre tattoo on her right thigh, a rose band on her left thigh, a jewel design under her breasts and fairies on the back on each of her calves.

Since coming second on the show, she’s also had Alex’s initials inked on her ring finger, too.

Alex popped the question over a romantic dinner in New York on December 30.

Confirming their new relationship status, the 24 year old former scaffolder posted a picture of the ring and wrote: “She said yes @oliviadbuck.”

The Love Island runners up have revealed to OK! magazine that they will have a big glamorous wedding in the UK.

Olivia said: “We know it’s going to be big. It will be glamorous and beautiful with loads of flowers. My mum got married last year, so she’s going to be really involved with the planning.”

Talking about her time on the show, she commented: “I’m so excited but I’m so nervous to watch it because I know I threw a little bit of a tantrum, I cried! What am I doing?!

She’s very active on social media, giving fans a glimpse into her glamorous life, along with makeup and fashion tips and of course her insight on this year’s Love Island contestants.
