Olivia was rushed to A&E after a routine blood test issued to all campmates flagged that she had dangerously low iron, sodium and potassium levels.

"I felt absolutely fine," said Olivia, who shared the sudden and unexplained diagnosis left her "very, very worried." "I didn't know what to think. I was wondering if I had picked up a virus. Was I pregnant? All of these things were going through my head. It was absolutely frightening," said the star.

Despite the second set of blood tests conducted during Olivia's time in hospital coming back with normal levels, the star was still refused re-entry back into the jungle.

ITV medical staff were not convinced by Olivia's results. "They were not happy to sign me off to come back in, even though I had the clean bill of health from the hospital,' she said.

"If I went back into camp, they feared my levels might drop and it could be detrimental to my health and wellbeing. They were not willing to authorise my return and therefore I wasn't insured."

ITV bosses likely made the decision to remove Olivia from the jungle due to the high health risks associated with anaemia.

According to the NHS, untreated iron deficiency anaemia can make you more at risk of illness and infection and may increase the risk of developing complications that affect the heart or lungs.

Olivia's team expressed their sadness for the former Love Island star in an Instagram post. They added: "Ps. Who's going to roast Matt Hancock now??"

Former health secretary Matt Hancock made his jungle debut on Wednesday night, causing a stir both in camp and amongst viewers at home.
