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.

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.
