‘I feel sorry for even the ones I don’t like!’ Olivia Attwood admits she sympathises with her former TOWIE enemies over vicious trolling
Olivia Attwood has admitted she sympathises with her former TOWIE enemies over the vicious trolling they receive.
The reality star, 30, reflected on her brief stint on the show, which saw her engage in arguments with Courtney Green, Chloe Meadows and Amber Turner.
Despite their bitter history, the model seemed to offer her support for the cast, sharing: ‘Even the ones I don’t like, I feel sorry for them! Because you’re just doing your job, but the viewers get so deep into it.’

The former Love Islander confessed her one-year stint wasn’t plain-sailing as she was met with more backlash from viewers of the ITVBe programme than when she was on the ITV2 dating series.
Olivia said in this week’s new! magazine: ‘I write back to the trolls or share their messages. I don’t take their s**t. But on the whole, the TOWIE viewers are just [sighs]… it’s like nothing you’ve ever imagined.
‘When I was on the show, I couldn’t believe the way the viewers interacted with the cast. I think it’s got worse in lockdown because people have more time on their hands. It’s awful some of the things they say to the girls.’
In September 2019, onlookers claimed the blonde hurled olives at former PA Courtney, 25, as they became involved in a slanging match.

Prominence: The TV star rose to fame on 2017’s Love Island, where she was coupled up with Chris Hughes
The brunette spoke exclusively to MailOnline about the explosive incident, where she revealed Olivia was ‘dragged away’ by producers after the row, and labelled her ‘threatening, un-classy and a b****h’.
Talking about the TV star allegedly calling her a ‘pig’, something the Love Island star denies, Courtney continued: ‘She started oinking at us and she called me a pig. She literally oinked, whatever she says, she oinked. Then she called me a pygmy goat.’
Since the dispute, Olivia has defended her ‘opinionated’ persona, hit back at claims she is a ‘bully’ and insisted that she called Courtney a goat not a pig.
The former grid girl admitted to MailOnline that she doesn’t regret calling her a goat ‘because she has little legs’, but feels ‘annoyed’ about failing to control her temper during the furious argument.
Her happy place: The model decided to leave the programme a year later in a bid to ‘prioritise her life’ with fiancé Bradley Dack in Manchester
Olivia decided to leave the programme a year later in a bid to ‘prioritise her life’ with fiancé Bradley Dack in Manchester.
Revealing her decision, she said: ‘I’ve got everything I’ve ever wanted waiting in Manchester, a whole life I’m missing out on.
‘These last few weeks saying I feel conflicted and feel I’ve come to realisation I need to be up there a bit more permanently. It’s the right thing to do, it’s just sad isn’t it.’
The blonde is set to wed the footballer, 27, and has documented her journey on Olivia Meets Her Match.
