And a host of former Love Islanders have shown their support for a new series of charity jumpers to help raise money for Action for Children.


In a shoot for the trendy sweatshirts, Olivia and Alex Bowen both embraced their festive spirit while Paige Turley and beau Finlay Tapp also looked sensational.

Olivia, 26, beamed as she showed off the jumper, which boasted a selection of festive pictures including a snowman and candy-cane on the front.


She appeared to be in good spirits as she helped decorate a Christmas tree with her husband Alex, who also sported a matching £32 top.


Love Island couple Paige and Finlay also exuded good cheer as they posed up a storm during the shoot. 


Blonde beauty Paige added some extra style to her ensemble by donning a Santa hat and later slipped into a black sweatshirt, also from the charity’s collection.

The loved-up duo looked every inch the happy couple as they smiled by a tree and lounged on a plush red sofa behind a huge sign reading ‘XMAS’.  


Among the other stars taking part in the campaign are Ore Oduba, Nadia Sawalha, Dr Ranj, Debbie Bright and Strictly’s Neil Jones.


While former Love Islanders Eyal Booker and Laura Anderson are also involved as well as Helen Flanagan, Laura Hamilton, Ali Bastian and Miles Nazaire.

Each of Action For Children’s jumpers costs £32 and can come in either grey or black, with sizes running from 8-18 for women and S-XXL for men.


There are also sweatshirts for children, at a price of £20, which come in feather grey and are available in sizes ranging from 3 to 12 years.  


The proceeds from the sale of each Secret Santa jumper will go towards helping the vulnerable children and young people who the charity has been supporting during the pandemic.

Action for Children works to ensure children across the UK feel safe and happy, providing services which allow them to step in to help when times get tough. 


Christmas should be a magical period, spending time with family and exchanging presents, but for thousands of children across the UK this will not be the case. 


Due to the global pandemic and a huge change in the financial situation of many, lots of children will face adversity this Christmas. 


Some will be waking up on Christmas Day homeless, others living with domestic violence or suffering from abuse and neglect, whilst many will be going hungry.

The charity is also hosting a own virtual carol concert, Starry Night, where families can experience an evening of Christmas carols, exclusive performances, readings, and sparkling entertainment from some famous faces.


Tickets for this cost £10 per household and a Virtual Christmas Quiz is also being planned to complete the charity’s line-up of pandemic-proof festive events. 


Meanwhile, Love Island’s Olivia has already shown she’s feeling festive early this year after revealing she has transformed her and Alex’s £1M Essex home for the season.

Taking to Instagram on Saturday, the star revealed their spacious home is ready for Christmas as she gave fans a glimpse of their VERY lavish decorations.


The couple enlisted the help of South Wales based AMInteriorsByDesign to create a winter wonderland complete with four life-sized nutcrackers.


As well as the statement statues, which stand either side of the feature staircase, the bannisters have also been covered with a twinkling green garland. 


Not forgetting to kit out the exterior of her and Alex’s home, Olivia opted for two huge Christmas trees to frame her front door alongside two more nutcrackers.

Completing the magical look was another garland filled with fairy lights to run across the top of the doorway. 


While other pictures posted to social media by Olivia and AMInteriorsByDesign showed another tree dripping in decorations inside the abode.  


This tree, which brought some festive spirit to the kitchen and dining area, was styled using large white flowers and silver diamond baubles.  


Olivia and Alex moved into their home back in February, meaning this will be the first Christmas they have spent at the new home.
