Olivia Attwood has ruled out a return to The Only Way Is Essex, saying she’d only make a comeback if the ‘dusty’ cast was ‘cut’.
The reality star, 30, who rose to fame on Love Island in 2017 before joining TOWIE briefly in 2019, updated her 1.9million Instagram followers during a Q&A session this week.
After one fan asked ‘loved you in TOWIE, any plans to do some returns?’, Olivia didn’t hold back with her brutal response, writing: ‘Oh no.. no plans. Like Beyoncé I think I definitely perform better as a solo artist.’

She added: ‘Buttttt never say never – they would have to cut a lot of that dusty cast for me to consider though.’
MailOnline has contacted a representative for TOWIE for comment.
This is not the first time Olivia has hit out at the show’s cast – in another Instagram Q&A earlier this year, she branded them ‘irrelevant’.

When asked who she disliked on the ITVBe series, she wrote: ‘There’s just like a handful that I love, like literally love them, and then the rest, they’re so irrelevant.
‘Naming them on here would be a pointless activity, you’d have to Google them and that probably wouldn’t help ya.’
Olivia clashed with Chloe Brockett, 21, during her time on the programme, scenes that prompted 200 complaints to Ofcom.

The television personality branded Chloe a ‘poisonous little creature’, a moment that left viewers uncomfortable.
Olivia left TOWIE in September 2020 to spend more time with her Blackburn Rovers footballer fiancé Bradley Dack, 27.
And the star got into the holiday spirit with Bradley and her dog Lola as she and her pet pooch wore matching festive pyjamas in snaps shared on Instagram on Sunday.

Last month, Olivia exclusively told the MailOnline that she is in no rush to start a family with fiancé Bradley because she’s ‘not interested in kids’ – after revealing she’s pushed her wedding back to 2023.
The businesswoman, who is the owner of luxury clothing brand Foolish, admitted while she sees children in her long-term future, right now motherhood isn’t on her radar and spending time with friends who have babies only puts her off further.
She added that the couple postponed their nuptials for a second time because of his injuries and their busy work schedules.

Olivia revealed: ‘We’re not getting married next year. We have cancelled our wedding.
‘I made the final decision and I feel like Brad was more upset than me. A lot of the wedding stress lands on the woman typically… He said, “let’s just do it next year” and I said, “well you’re not the one that’s doing it”, I don’t want to do something and rush it.
‘It’s complicated but essentially the main reasons are Brad is recovering from injury, when we were looking into booking more details for the wedding, the stag and the hen do, he didn’t want to book until he had three good football games.
‘I thought, we couldn’t wait because Christmas will happen, then we will be in March and then it’ll be the wedding.
‘My work schedule is so heavy on my shoulders with filming, the brand. We are just going to buy ourselves another year. We are a strong couple, and we achieve a lot in our careers, and we want to enjoy getting married.’
Olivia, who got engaged in 2019, planned to marry Blackburn Rovers star Bradley next year at Grantley Hall, after falling in love with the picturesque wedding venue in scenes captured for her ITVBe reality series Olivia Meets Her Match.
