The former "Love Island" couple - who got together on the dating show last year - are set to tie the knot in 12 months" time and, although they've both been very busy with their individual careers, the blonde beauty has started putting the plans into action.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz at Thorpe Park Fright Media Event and red carpet last night (28.09.17), Olivia said: "I think I've been controlling the situation of the wedding, but we've done quite a lot we've got the venue, we've sorted out he photography and videographer, flowers, so it's all coming together but it's a big job.

"Alex is too busy at the moment. So he's doing his brand I'm doing the wedding, we're also trying to get a house at the same time so it's all going on."

However, the 25-year-old hunk is having a little bit input into the preparations for the ceremony as he doesn't want to be completely out of the loop when the big day arrives.
