Olivia Attwood has told fans she feels guilty for being able to get her hair dyed despite salons being shut due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The former Love Island star, 29, revealed that she had been able to get her roots done for work but didn’t feel good about it.
A fan asked her during an Instagram Q&A: ‘How have you had your hair done????’, after seeing her highlights looking flawless.
She replied: ‘Just the front bit was coloured the other day on set at a shoot. Sorry – I don’t make the rules / but still feel guilty lol’.
Hairdressers are still currently closed as part of the national lockdown due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and are planned to open on April 12 as part of the gradual easing of restrictions if cases remain at a manageable level.
Olivia has been outspoken about fellow Love Island stars and other influencers bending the rules to travel abroad for ‘work’ amid lockdown.

She told Grazia last month: ‘There is an interesting conversation to educate younger generations that being an influencer, or being on TV, is not all it’s cracked up to be.
‘But, it’s just so unbelievably tone-deaf to think that now would be an appropriate time to raise that topic – when your hard day is creating content that might get nasty comments and someone else’s hard day is a 12 hour shift, zipping up body bags at the end of it.’
She previously hit out at influencers who travelled to places like Dubai claiming it was for ‘work’, when they could have been creating similar content from home.
She said: ‘You sound so stupid. There’s a difference between being able to earn money from wherever you are and being on holiday for work.
‘Whenever I go on holiday, I will post content which I can monetise, but I’m still on holiday.
‘I don’t go, “Oh me and [my boyfriend] Brad have had the most amazing week in Portugal, but don’t worry, I was flat out working,” you just sound so stupid.

‘On top of that you have got the ones going, “Oh we are all in this together, this is our struggle,” no, it’s not. You are on holiday and to be fair I don’t f**king blame you.’
Olivia continued: ‘People are losing their family members daily, people can’t pay their rent, people’s lifelong businesses they have worked their f**king b*****ks off for are crumbling around them and you are on your stories on the beach telling us we don’t know how hard it is.’
