‘I’ve survived COVID and swine flu’: Olivia Attwood steps out in casual style after revealing she has successfully battled TWO viruses
In the years since rising to fame on Love Island, she’s become known for using her Instagram account as a space to candidly share her thoughts with fans.
And Olivia Atwood made some more revelations during a session on the image-sharing platform on Friday, when she disclosed that she has successfully battled both the novel coronavirus and the H1N1 virus, commonly called swine flu.
The former Love Island star, 29, was spotted stepping out in snowy Manchester just hours after sharing that she had overcome both potentially serious illnesses.

Taking to her Instagram Stories on New Year’s Day, she told followers that her best friend was hospitalised after they contracted swine flu while on holiday in Cyprus, while she also managed to ‘survive Covid’.
‘Girls, Thomas Cook said don’t go, we were like, “No, it’ll be fine”. We pretty much all caught swine flu,’ she explained.
‘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.
‘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.’

Swine flu is a relatively new strain of an influenza virus that originated in pigs, but is primary spread from person to person.
Much like COVID-19 today, H1N1 dominated headlines back in 2009, when it was first discovered in humans and spread to the rate of becoming a pandemic.
As many of her reality star cohorts bent Tier 4 lockdown rules to crowd the beaches of Dubai over the recently concluded festive season, Olivia took a cheeky swipe at them in a hilarious pre-Christmas Instagram post.
The TV personality was asked whether she had any plans to travel to the UAE over the festive period, and in a cutting response said she’d rather ‘stick pins in her eyes’.

During a Q and A with fans, Olivia was asked why she wasn’t spending Christmas in Dubai like ‘everyone else’.
She wrote: ‘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.’
Elsewhere, Olivia has been keeping fans abreast of her wedding preparations on new reality show Olivia Meets Her Match, ahead of her lavish nuptials with fiancé Bradley Dack.

In one episode, the reality star revealed to a stunned Bradley that she’s planning on splashing an eye-watering £200,000 on the wedding.
The stunner joked that she could buy a Lamborghini for the price of their lavish nuptials, with Bradley none too impressed that his wife-to-be had gone way over budget.
Speaking to the camera, Olivia remarked: ‘If I sit and think about the fact I could have a brand new Lamborghini for the cost of this wedding, then I could just cancel this wedding right now.
‘But you can’t think like that because… memories are priceless and all that s***.’
