A LOVE Island star visited the Lake District to celebrate her birthday this week.

Olivia Bowen, alongside her husband Alex, who she met during series two of the hit reality show in 2016, spent some time in the Lakes to celebrate her 28th birthday.

The loved-up pair shared pictures of them walking and relaxing with their two French bulldogs.


The couple recently announced that they are expecting their first child together.

Olivia posted on her Instagram: “Are you a city or country gal/guy? I’m die-hard country!

“I dip in and out of the city for work & sometimes nights/days out but my mind feels so busy & unsettled when I’m there. I come home and feel like I can breathe when I see vast amounts of fields.

“Think I need my space haha! I think it’s also because I grew up in quite a remote area so that’s where I’m most comfortable and connected, it’s just what I’m used to!

“The expression ‘rarely anything amazing happens in the comfort zone’ is bull crap. I think it’s amazing being comfortable and happy and familiar and slowing down. There’s a time and a place to push yourself but it doesn’t have to be constant, there’s magic in just being!”
