Everything You Need To Know About Olivia Bentley From Made In Chelsea

She's one of the show's most outspoken cast members, so obviously we love her.

Olivia Bentley

by Aimee Jakes |

Made In Chelsea's Olivia ‘Liv’ Bentley is one of our favourite characters in the show - and she's also starred on Celebs Go Dating, too.

Olivia was the super arty nude photographer who has transformed into a full-blown, strawberry liqueur sipping, ‘dahling’ dropping Made In Chelsea-ite we can’t get enough of.

We love her so much that we've done some research on her (in a totally non-creepy way) and brought you everything you need to know about Olivia Bentley.

How old is Olivia Bentley?

Her birthday is the 26 August, so she's a Virgo. (Much like Beyoncé). She was born in 1995, so is currently 25.

Where did Olivia go to school?

She went to school at the £28,000-a-year Bradfield College, a boarding school in Berkshire.

What’s Liv Bentley's net worth? How is she rich?

It’s estimated to be around £600,000, which is a lot more than any of us are worth. 600k more if talking numbers.

Ah, Bentley? Is she anything to do with the chap behind Bentley Motors?

Liv claims to be the great-great-great granddaughter of the founder of Bentley Motors, however, the brand has denied this, which is pretty hurtful if she is actually a family member. Very high drama.

What does Olivia Bentley do as a job?

She photographs people in the nude. Proper, dead fancy arty photography.

Does Olivia Bentley have alopecia?

Yes. Olivia has been candid about her struggle with hairloss, and she even spoke about it with Grazia recently. 'I was only ever self-conscious about it when I was younger,’ she says. ‘And then through the years, I sort of just got on with it and sort of accepted it. But when I was younger, it was harder because I remember having boyfriends. And they'd say like comments or I’d always be clipping in extensions.’

Who are Olivia Bentley's family?

Kate and Keven Bentley. Liv also has two sisters, Athena and Kinvara.

Oliva Bentley and Tristan Phipps

Olivia was dating Tristan Phipps. However, their relationship wasn't always sailing. In June Olivia announced that they had parted ways - at the time she told us at Grazia, 'Because of lockdown, Tristan and I have either been living together, or not seeing each other at all. It was very up and down but I think it made it a lot harder having a relationship in front of all our friends because it was just very intense.'

However, as of September the couple were rumoured to be 'back on'. Tristan's representative told OK!, 'After taking some time apart Tristan and Liv are back together and are happier and stronger than ever.' But, since, as of 2022, they have split again. Boo.

Olivia Bentley and Digby Edgley

Olivia was dating fellow co-star Digby Edgley and they were very much in love (except when they, ahem, weren't: this was very much an on-off affair). However, things move fast in the borough of Chelsea, and the couple have since parted ways.

Olivia Bentley and Fredrik Ferrier

Liv was dating Fredrik Ferrier. However, Fred crossed Liv's boundaries by texting his friends aboutMimi Bouchardsaying 'who is that girl, she's cute?' Uh oh. But they're both back for the new series, so things must be at least vaguely amicable.

Olivia Bentley and Francis Boulle

Liv was dating Francis Boulle in Series 12, but things disintegrated into baring blue ticks on Whatsapp and nothingness when Francis decided to up the anti in helping save the endangered pangolin. Fairs. Liv also ruffled Tiff's feathers in Series 11 by announcing she used to sleep with Sam Thompson. As she aptly put it, 'we used to bonk!'

What happened with Olivia Bentley and Julius Cowdrey?

The pair used to be inseparable (and Julius was first introduced to the wonderful world of Chelsea by Liv) but things have since turned incredibly sour. Julius previously said mean stuff about Liv and hinted that she was 'easy' (NOT OKAY). Julius took some time of the show but rejoined the MIC cast in season 20. They had a few tiff's between them at the start of the series, but by season 21 they had squashed all their issues. They are not exactly best friends but they are not enemies anymore either.

What about Olivia and Demi Sims?

She was also recently linked to TOWIE's Demi Sims. That was, of course, before the coronavirus pandemic happened. At the time she told Hello! Magazine, 'I met this girl while I was out with friends and she invited me for a drink.' She continued, 'Everyone is so quick to say no [to this kind of a dalliance], so I thought I'd just see. I decided it wasn't for me and that I'm not that way inclined.'

And what about Olivia and Josh Ritchie?

Josh Ritchie also starred on the latest series of Celebs Go Dating and the pair - who were friends before the show - were linked. But there's no chance of the pair properly getting together. She told Grazia in April, 'Obviously now I'm not dating anyone because I'm stuck in my house for three months. Yeah, we do like each other. I don't really know how to explain it - I don't personally think we will end up in a relationship together.’

What's Olivia's Instagram?

It's @oliviabentleyk and is a glorious mix of face masks, sassy quotes and OOTDS. Get following for inspo a-plenty.
