When her mum and grandma entered the villa, the islander burst into tears and ran to hug them.
Despite her nan's cheeky flirtatious comments towards hunky Alex, the Birmingham model and labourer won over the Bucklands with his warm personality.
Talking about Olivia's connection with Alex, her mum said: "You can see how you're on the same wavelength and you can just see the connection you just know.
"We've been watching all of it and I just know."
It turns out she was bang on the money, as the pair have been married since 2018 and gone on to build an empire together.
Ched Uzor's very fashionable parents

The couple caused such a stir on social media over their amazing outfits that fans were urging them to release their own fashion line.
The wholesome moment definitely made it clear where Ched got his own sharp fashion sense from.

Dani Dyer received a video call from her parents before she won Love Island in 2019, alongside her now ex-boyfriend Jack Fincham.
The Love Island winner is famously the daughter of EastEnder actor Danny Dyer, who sat next to wife Jo Mas as they spoke to their daughter.
Dad Danny gave Jack his seal of approval as he said: "He's lovely, you know what, you've found a right proper geezer in there."
As Jack joined the call, he admitted to Danny he was "nervous to meet" him, but Danny reassured him that their connection was "a beautiful thing."
However despite being the winning couple, pair split and both have one child with other partners.

"He is a very supportive dad, he is like my best friend and is always there for me.”

She tells Belle: "I have a wee present for you" before handing over the razor as Belle joked "I'll need that!"
