AFTER the coronavirus pandemic forced her to postpone her glamorous wedding, Olivia Attwood says she’ll now get married on the telly.
Olivia, 29, who is engaged to footballer Bradley Dack, 26, had planned a summer wedding in Portugal this year.
While she’s “still aiming to have it in the summer next year”, Olivia promised the fans of her and Bradley’s reality show, Olivia Meets Her Match, that they would get to see the wedding on the show.
She told The Sun Online in an exclusive chat: “I don’t know how much of the wedding will be filmed and how much access the show will have but I think it’s only fair to the viewers to film the actual wedding.
“I think it would be cheating them to do a show on wedding plans and then refuse to film the big day.”
Olivia does not want to postpone her wedding as far away as 2022, but “if we get into spring next year and things still aren’t getting any better then I think we would postpone again”.
“Perhaps we would get married with just parents and then have another ceremony later or we just completely postpone and wait,” she said.
“That’s a conversation we haven’t had yet and one I don’t really want to have.”
Whether she has a small wedding with just her family or a more traditional bash, Olivia promised her wedding “won’t be a huge celeb affair”.
In fact, some of her most famous friends might not even make the guest list at all.
Former Love Island bud Kem Cetinay and Towie stars Chloe Sims and Pete Wicks might not make the cut.
“The wedding list is proving the hardest thing,” Olivia admitted.
“My girls Clelia and Nicola Bass will definitely be there because I have known them for so long.
“I really hope Chloe Sims and Pete will be there. I would love them both to be there and I think they will be but my list is way too long and Brad keeps hassling me to cut my numbers.”
Olivia added: “The invite list and the bridesmaid choices are the two things that are giving me real anxiety. You just know there will be people really pissed off at not being invited or not being made a bridesmaid.”
She also suggested it would be ok to invite both Kem and his ex Amber Davies to the wedding.
“Amber is pretty content in her own life now. I don’t think she would mind if Kem was there,” Olivia said.
Everything is so up in the air for Olivia’s wedding plans, she also doesn’t know when or where she’ll honeymoon and it’ll all be dependent on Brad’s football schedule.
“What with football season and needing time for the stag and hen dos and then the wedding we may have to postpone the honeymoon and just try and get away for a long weekend abroad before pre-season starts,” she said.
The coronavirus pandemic has really thrown a spanner into Olivia’s plans with her show’s finale being cancelled due to lockdown.
The former Love Island beauty told how original plans for a big series finale had now been scrapped due to strict Tier 3 Covid regulations in Manchester.
But even though the end finale has been scaled down at the last minute, a second series is highly due to the show “being a huge hit – getting twice the viewers of most shows on the channel.”

A source told The Sun Online: “ITV execs are desperate to sign Olivia up to a long term deal because it’s blown everything else out of the water.”
Liv, 26, also revealed TOWIE fans were now unlikely to see her return to the series for the Christmas Special as planned.
With TV sources claiming she had filmed her final scenes and won’t be returning to the show again.
