Olivia Attwood reveals why she was rushed to hospital and quit


Earlier this week, the Love Island was forced to leave the jungle after just 24 hours, and while she’s shut down certain rumours, she hadn’t yet addressed why she was no longer in the jungle.

But, after teasing that the ‘truth’ would come out, we finally know.

The 31-year-old was rushed to A&E by ITV staff after ‘routine blood tests’ showed her to be ‘dangerously anaemic’.

Not only that, but her sodium and potassium levels were ‘worryingly low.’

‘I was so scared, I was like “what the hell is wrong with me?”‘ she told The Daily Mail.

She added that despite her blood tests being ‘fine’ when she had them done in England, her results were ‘really, really low’.

I was confused and of course very, very worried,’ she added.

During the journey to the hospital, Olivia added that she was worried about being pregnant, or concerned that she had picked up a virus.

‘It was absolutely frightening,’ she added.

ITV bosses weren’t happy to let her back into the jungle after the health scare, despite the hospital giving her the all clear.

‘They feared my levels might drop and it could be detrimental to my health and wellbeing,’ Olivia added.

‘I was absolutely devastated. I’m not a crier but I started to cry, it was so emotional. I was heartbroken and gutted. I tried to keep my emotions in check and keep it in perspective, things could be so much worse.’

She also told the publication it was like a ‘punch to the gut’ knowing she was a favourite to win.’

Olivia, who left before Seann Walsh and Matt Hancock’s controversial arrival, said discussions haven’t been had about whether or not she will be receiving her full fee.
