Olivia Attwood has joined "The Only Way Is Essex" to support her friend Chloe Sims.
The "Love Island" beauty has filmed scenes for a cameo in the reality show after growing close to the longstanding cast member, and she will offer her support about her new relationship with Dan Edgar.
An insider told The Sun Online: "Olivia formed a friendship with Chloe when they appeared on "Celebs Go Dating" together.
"The new series has so far proved to an emotional one for Chloe and she could really do with the additional support from Olivia, who's never afraid to speak her mind."
It's thought she will be able to comfort Chloe as the star's romance with Dan has split the opinion of other cast members who have been more sceptical.
However, Olivia has also known Shelby Tribble and Clelia Theodorou - who both first appeared on the show last year - for a long time, giving her more connections in the world of "TOWIE".
The source added: "Olivia has also been close friends with Shelby and Clelia for years.
"The three of them met during their time as motorsport grid girls and they've remained good pals ever since."
It's been a tough time for Olivia lately, as it was revealed earlier this month that she has split from her boyfriend Bradley Deck just two months after moving to Manchester to be with the Blackburn Rovers footballer.
Confirming the break up in a very matter-of-fact Instagram post, she simply said: "Just to put any speculation to bed. Brad and I are no longer in a relationship."
