The 31-year-old reality TV star had to quit the show earlier today after less than 24-hours on the show and was withdrawn from the show on medical grounds. A show spokesman said: "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.”

Despite leaving the show early Olivia is still entitled to receive her £125,000 fee for appearing on the ITV show, a  national paper reports. A TV source revealed the Love Island star will receive her full fee due to a particular clause in her celebrity contract. The fee is believed to be between £100,000 - £125,000.
