Olivia Attwood Dack ‘to host new ITV dating show’

Olivia Attwood Dack has scored a gig as the host of a new ITV program.

The 33-year-old television personality, who rose to fame after her stint on the third season of ‘Love Island’ in 2017, has announced that she will be fronting an upcoming show on the channel, though its title remains under wraps, amid speculations that it could be a dating series.

Taking to Instagram, the ‘Loose Women’ panelist shared some behind-the-scenes snapshots from her work in Greece, captioning them: “Guys …….. I have been keeping a secret. BTS from my brand new @itv reality show … you’re not ready (I don’t actually think I am) (sic).”

Reportedly, the series will track a cohort of couples grappling with relationship hurdles stemming from male misbehaviour, with Olivia taking on the challenge of steering them towards positive changes.

In November 2023, it surfaced that the TV personality had been offered a six-figure paycheck to helm the series.

A source in the industry informed the MailOnline: “Olivia is over the moon, she could have never predicted after starring on ‘Love Island’ as a contestant to one day be presenting her own dating series.

“She is working with a full ensemble cast and filming has already started in Greece, she is loving every second of it so far.

“It’s a dream come true for her, and she can’t wait for viewers to fall in love with the format and hopefully enjoy watching the show as much as she has shooting it.”

Last August, Olivia joined ‘Loose Women’ as a new panelist after making several guest appearances on the show, but admitted she initially felt it was too good to be true.

Speaking to OK! magazine, she shared: “It wasn’t something that was on the mood board. It all happened really organically.

“I was a guest on the show a couple of times, and I always loved it when I was.

“I joked to my agent saying, ‘Imagine me as a Loose Woman’, and she said she really could. Then one of the show’s bosses got in touch and we went out for lunch, she asked me how I would feel about trying it out, and I said, ‘Oh my God, are you serious?’ I almost thought it was a joke.”
