Olivia was first seen on screen as Dawn in a storyline involving Ross Barton in the spring of 2018. She was an ex drug addict and prostitute who’d lost custody of her little boy, Lucas.

But Dawn proved such a hit with fans that Olivia was snapped up by the soap’s bosses to be a permanent member of the cast.

Who are Dawn’s family?

Dawn moved to the village and it was revealed she had once been close to village vicar Harriet Finch. Harriet had been in a relationship with Dawn’s dad, Will Taylor – who followed her to the village – and had been like a mum to young Dawn.

Since then Dawn and Harriet have got themselves into trouble with corrupt cop DI Malone, who Dawn ended up shooting and killing!

Dad Will covered up the crime for his daughter.

She’s also been involved in a love triangle with Jamie Tate and Gabby Thomas.

Will Meena kill Dawn?

But Dawn’s latest brush with danger could prove her deadliest yet. She is marrying Billy Fletcher, but when they got together he was in a relationship with serial killer Meena Jutla.

As Dawn and Billy approach their wedding day, someone is watching Dawn. They break into her house and destroy her wedding dress and Dawn is prepared to fight for her life.

However, it seems the ceremony goes without a hitch and the loved-up couple say I do.

But it’s not long before Meena kidnaps them both and gives Billy a horrifying ultimatum: choose which one of them will die next.
