Love Island’s Olivia Hawkins and Zara Deniz Lackenby-Brown have been caught in a series of rows in the villa so far, with fans speculating that the pair have a longer-standing feud than during their time on the show.

Love Island’s Olivia Hawkins and Zara Deniz Lackenby-Brown have been caught in a handful of explosive rows despite it only being the first week of the winter series.

Their feud began when Zara picked Olivia as the most ‘two-faced person’ in the villa during a game of non-alcoholic beer pong last week before they briefly appeared to squash the tension.

However, it quickly escalated again after Zara stole bombshell Tom Clare from Olivia during a re-coupling, leading the girls to clash once again.

Screenshots of Zara and Olivia’s pre-villa friendship have been making the rounds online as the pair gushed over snaps of each other three years ago, which left fans seriously confused as there was no mention of this on the show.
