OLIVIA Attwood has established herself as the new queen of reality TV following her stint on Love Island 2017. Here's what we know about the leggy beauty who split from her Love Island ex Chris Hughes... Who is Olivia Attwood and where is she from? Olivia was a contestant on reality ITV2 romance show Love Island – she's 26 years old and hails from Surrey. Like most contestants on the show, she's no stranger to modelling and her good looks certainly caught the eye of the boys on the show.

As a struggling actress, Olivia Cooke was turned down by Hollyoaks, Emmerdale and drama school RADA. But with a starring role in Steven Spielberg’s virtual reality blockbuster Ready Player One, the 24-year-old has taken her career to a different level. And she has raked in bonus points by having two films released a week apart – with lead billing this weekend in dark comedy thriller Thoroughbreds. Olivia says cheerfully of her failed soap auditions: “Thank God, thank God, thank God – I’d still be there now, five years later.” But even she admits Hollywood was never in her game plan. She says: “I don’t think I was ever attracted to it because I never thought it would happen. “Being from the north of England, when you want to be an actor you only expect that you’re going to be a soap star.

Pretty much since pop music was invented, musicians have had a love affair with alien life. Not just the songs that reference ET (including, but certainly not limited to, Frank Zappa’s “Alien Orifice”, “Girl from Mars” by Ash, anything by David Bowie, and the highly recommended “The Martians Have Landed in Wigan”, the Bernard Wrigley poem put to music by the Houghton Weavers), but the ongoing fascination – and in some cases devout belief – with the idea that something is out there. Why pop stars should be so obsessed with aliens is up for discussion. Perhaps it’s the long days on the road which gives ample opportunity for staring at the sky through the windows of a tour bus. Maybe it’s the creative soul tapping into an ethereal, otherworldly sphere that forms a connection to the greater universe and its denizens. Or it could just be the drugs. Not casting aspersion, of course, on anyone mentioned in this article, but … [Read more...] about Pop stars and aliens: why would the likes of David Bowie and Olivia Newton-John believe in extraterrestrials?
