Cara dropped as bridesmaid

Just months before the wedding, and just after they both celebrated the hen do in Mykonos, it was revealed that Love Island winner Cara would no longer be a bridesmaid.

Talking in her new! magazine column, Olivia admitted, “Cara’s got baby Freddie now and when I asked her she was a lot less busy and I thought she could handle the pressure.

"I said, 'I don’t need you to be my bridesmaid, you’re coming to the wedding regardless and if it’s easier on both of us with all the commitment, how do you feel about just coming to the wedding as a guest?'"

Olivia reveals why she really dropped Cara as bridesmaid

During her wedding day interview, Olivia revealed her and Cara have just grown apart.

She said, “Sadly we drifted apart, there was no big fallout or anything. It’s just life, priorities change and people come and go.

“At the time, of course, I still wanted her there – I’d asked her nearly every day for weeks in the run-up to the day whether she was still coming and got no reply.”
