After making history as the first Love Island personality to compete on the ITV show, the 31-year-old reality star has now left the camp after being involved in a reported ‘medical drama’.
She is now already on her way home to be consoled by her fiancée Bradley Dack after trying in vain to beg show bosses to return to the camp.
A show spokesman told MailOnline: ‘As a precautionary measure Olivia needed to leave the jungle to undergo some medical checks.
‘Unfortunately, the medical team has advised it is not safe for Olivia to return to camp as there needs to be further investigation. She has been absolutely brilliant and she’ll be very much missed on the show.’
Olivia’s early exit means she’s tied for the shortest stint in camp after EastEnders actress Elaine Lordan also withdrew after just 24 hours during the 2005 series when she fainted twice in one day.

It’s a shock blow to the ITV series, which returned on Sunday night with two million more viewers than last year, after spending two years being filmed in Wales due to the Covid pandemic.
Olivia has not spoken publicly about any health issues. She previously confessed that she is left ‘constantly overwhelmed’ by Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and has taken medication for anxiety and depression.
During the action-packed launch show, Olivia’s jungle experience got off to a pleasant start when she was chosen to be a VIP campmate by the audience and chose fellow campmate Chris Moyles, 48, to be her companion for a lavish meal in a roped-off area.
The reality star and the radio legend were then given a ‘once in a lifetime opportunity’ as they faced the ultimate skydive entrance.
Chris and Olivia had been enjoying their meal when they received some information, which read: ‘Olivia and Chris, we hope you enjoyed your meal. It’s now time to begin your journey into camp and as VIPs you’re going to get a taste of the high life by jumping out of a chopper at 10,000ft.’

Chris said to Olivia: ‘You take me for a prawn and then in a helicopter – you’re a s*** date;’ as Olivia laughed: ‘It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity. I just need to get back on safe ground in one piece – both boobs, all the veneers, everything.’
After completing the jump first, an emotional Olivia said: ‘Oh my god I’m crying, that’s the most amazing thing I’ve ever done, ever. That is incredible. Top 10 experience of my life. Just amazing.’
Taking in her surroundings she added: ‘I didn’t expect to be landing on a beach – where the hell are we?’
Olivia rose to fame on Love Island in 2017, where she coupled up with Chris Hughes, and has since fronted her own reality series, Olivia Meets Her Match starring her footballer fiancée, Bradley, as well as an ITV2 docu-series on the sex industry.
Olivia announced her engagement to Bradley in October 2019, sharing sweet snaps of the couple on a beach in Dubai after the footballer popped the question. She admitted prior to entering the jungle that sex would be the thing she will miss most in the outback.

Matt, 44, was seen arriving in Australia earlier this week after it emerged he was going to make a controversial appearance on the show. He will also be joined later in the series by comedian Seann Walsh.
Funnyman Seann was caught kissing his Strictly Come Dancing professional partner Katya Jones in 2018 when he appeared on the show while he was dating actress Rebecca Humphries.
This year’s series has returned to the jungle for the first time in three years after the coronavirus pandemic meant recent series have been filmed in Gwrych Castle in Wales as travel restrictions prevented journeying Down Under.
Viewers at home were delighted by the comeback of the hit show, admitting that it felt like ‘normal service had resumed’ after filming returned to Australia following two years in north Wales.
On Sunday, Chris Moyles was the first celebrity to arrive in a luxurious black Rolls Royce. The star admitted he was hoping to endear himself to the public, saying: ‘People are going to be so pleased to see Chris Moyles.
‘They’re going to say, “Wow, he’s so much nicer than I thought he was going to be. He’s not an a**ehole.”‘
Following on from Chris was former Love Island star Olivia. She said: ‘I do think that with reality TV people in general there is an idea that we’re lacking in the brains department and I’m going to confirm that.’
Jokers: Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly confirmed there will be two extra arrivals to the I’m A Celebrity camp and poked fun at Tory MP Matt Hancock, expected to be one of them, as the show launched on Sunday night
Of the show’s tough trials, she said: ‘My nerves are not actually trial-based. They’re more actually living with other people but I got used to that on Love Island… I think the shower and toilet stuff doesn’t actually phase me! I pee in the garden every time I go out.’
Charlene White was the third star to make appearance on the show. The ITV newsreader and Loose Women anchor said: ‘Of all the shows I said I was never going to do, I’m A Celeb was definitely one of those… How do I think I’m going to cope? I’m not an outdoorsy person.’
The fourth celebrity to appear on screens was former England footballer Jill Scott. The Lionesses star said on entry: ‘My biggest achievement was winning the Euros against Germany. 90,000 people at Wembley. The best day of my life. My next step is entering the jungle which I’m very excited about.
Comedian and actor Babatunde Aleshe was the fifth star to enter, meeting the rest of the celebrities at a lavish villa: ‘I definitely don’t like rats. I had a hamster once and I was really scared of it.’

‘Can I camp? No! I’m not that crazy. Do I have survival skills? Yes! I’m from Tottenham. We run.
‘I’m scared of everything. Rats, spiders, snakes and at the top of that is frogs… Have you ever seen a toad?! Toads are huge! This is Australia, man. They’ve got animals that they ain’t even discovered yet.’
The group was greeted by hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly who expressed their excitement at being back in Australia after two years, after the show was held in Wales due to the coronavirus pandemic.
She was able to choose one of her fellow contestants to join her for a VIP meal at the villa, with Olivia choosing radio DJ Chris.

The rest of the group were told they would be leaving the villa and that they would have to earn their food on their way to their camp.
Chris said: ‘I think VIP realistically means we get to have a plate of fruit and then we get to do something that scares the living s**t out of me.’
Ant and Dec explained that VIP actually means Very Isolated Person.
Olivia told Chris on why she chose him as her VIP: ‘I know you’ve got a good sense of humour and we’re obviously going to spend some time together so we can have a laugh.’
Jill, Babtunde and Charlene were then seen lifting off in a helicopter and flying over the Pacific Ocean towards a 32-storey tall tower block to take part in the infamous ‘Walk The Plank’ challenge.
Gripping: They were told there were three stars for collection which they could exchange for meals and they needed to walk to the end of the plank, let go of the rope securing them and they would win their meals for camp
They were told there were three stars for collection which they could exchange for meals and they needed to walk to the end of the plank, let go of the rope securing them and they would win their meals for camp.
While Charlene quickly made her way out to the end of the plank, which was swiftly removed so she could not turn back, Babatunde had to fight his instincts to convince himself to take tiny steps forward.
Jill was able to quickly complete the task, marching towards the end of the plank without a second guess.
Both Charlene and Jill were then tasked with standing on a slant at the end of the plank and leaning forward to look over the edge while holding on to a wire behind them.
To complete the task both Jill and Charlene had to let go of the rope and launch themselves off the end of the plank where they were left suspended in mid air on a wire.

After enjoying their lavish meal together at the villa, Olivia and Chris were seen making their way to the helicopter to complete a skydive over the water off the coast of the city of Surfers Paradise, Queensland and onto a sandy beach.
After jumping out of the aircraft from 10,000 feet, and screaming all the way down, Olivia excitedly declared: ‘That was the most incredible experience of my life! I’m crying!’
With Olivia’s VIP pal Chris having landed safely on the beach, only for the pair to have no clue where they were, the next five celebrities were welcomed onto the show.
Singer Boy George was heard saying he’s perfect for the show because he’s a ‘natural born show off’ before he was joined by Coronation Street actress Sue Cleaver.

Hollyoaks star Owen Warner was then seen arriving by boat after saying his worst jungle nightmare would be encountering snakes.
A Place In The Sun presenter Scarlette Douglas then made an entrance, saying she will bring her excellent cooking skills to the jungle camp to contribute.
The final of the second lot of five celebrities to arrive was former rugby player Mike Tindall, who advised his fellow contenders ‘not to choose fear’ when taking part in the gruelling jungle tasks.

Sue, Owen and Mike were seen jetting off in the helicopter before landing in the jungle where they were tasked with completing a number of puzzles.
They were seen rowing across a lake to different games in a bid to collect a number of stars to exchange for meals in camp.
Each member of the group was seen climbing into tanks where they were confronted with a variety of creepy crawlies, including spiders and maggots.

Meanwhile, Boy George and Scarlette finished their meal and they were then tasked with rowing to meet Chris and Olivia on their remote desert island.
The other eight contestants were then seen making their way into camp where Babatunde amused himself as he was unable to start the campfire.
He laughed in the Beach Hut as he was joined by sportsman Mike who instantly sparked up the flames to keep the group warm.
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! continues on ITV1 on Monday at 9pm.
