Love Island’s Olivia Hawkins dons a racy black corset as she appears in a scene alongside Daniel Craig in legendary James Bond film
The Love Island contestant, 27, who will appear in the new series of the show when it starts next Monday, detailed her impressive career highlights before entering the villa.
And now a picture shared by The Sun shows Olivia posing backstage in her raunchy costume, which included a black corset and feathered headdress.
Star: Olivia Hawkins once appeared in a scene alongside Daniel Craig and Ana de Armas in legendary James Bond film No Time To Die
It’s the same costume worn by a host of actresses in the Cuban nightclub scene – including Olivia.
It comes after Olivia named Jason Statham as her dream party guest after they appeared in a movie together.
She explained: ‘I did a film with Jason Statham and had a nice 10 minute convo about life.’
When asked who her dream party guests were she named Jason before adding that she would also invite The Rock and late singer Amy Winehouse.

Good for her! Olivia is preparing to carve out a name in her own right after acting as body doubles for the likes of Michelle Keegan and Emma Watson
And she is hoping to find romance on this winter’s Love Island, saying: ‘I’m 27 and I’ve never been in a relationship so I feel like now I’m really ready to settle down and hopefully find the love of my life.’
On why she’s single, she added: ‘Out of choice and maybe because in the past I’ve had commitment issues – but I’d say it’s mainly just the wrong boy, wrong time.’
While she admits she falls in love quickly, there are a number of things that get on Olivia’s nerves when it comes to men.
Pro: It won’t be the first time the boxing ring girl has been in front of the camera, having stood in for former Corrie star Michelle, 35, when she shot a Very campaign in 2017
Living the high life: ‘I did a film with Jason Statham and had a nice 10-minute convo about life. I’ve been a ring girl for KSI, I played a waitress in James Bond with Daniel Craig and I’ve also been a body double for Michelle Keegan and Emma Watson,’ she explains of her varied career
She explained: ‘When guys have no pillows on their bed. I went into a guy’s room once and I was like, “You don’t have any pillows, where am I supposed to lay my head?” He went and got one from the sofa.
‘Also when men use umbrellas, it’s a really weird one but it’s just the thought of them running outside under the umbrella.’
The ninth series of Love Island will be hosted for the first time by Maya Jama , after Laura Whitmore stepped down from the position following former presenter Caroline Flack’s tragic death in 2020.
Record-breaking viewing figures saw the last series of Love Island, which aired in summer 2022, become the most-watched series ever on ITV Hub, amassing over 269 million streams.
Wow! She also claims to have starred in music videos for Craig David and DJ Tom Zanetti as well as play a waitress in James Bond alongside Daniel Craig
The debut winter series aired in January 2020 – shortly before the COVID-19 pandemic – and was won by Paige Turley and Finn Tapp.
Plans for a second winter series were shelved in 2021 amid concerns surrounding the pandemic.
Paul Mortimer, Director of Reality Commissioning and Controller, ITV2, said ‘Love Island has once again proved itself to be the nation’s favourite talking point across the summer, and we’re always blown away by the show’s ongoing impact and talkability amongst our younger audience.
‘So, rather than just serving up a Summer of Love, we thought we’d make 2023 the Year of Love with two full series of the show.’
