Relationships have played a big part in Olivia’s content, as the internet’s bestie opens up to her audience about the trials and tribulations she goes through as a 21-year-old woman. After suffering recent heartbreak, she is now on the hunt to explore what a relationship should be for her and more importantly, how to be truly Olivia as a singleton. 

With nothing to lose and a desire to figure out what’s next in her love life, Olivia is going to explore the hottest new dating trend on the planet – dating in the Metaverse. Olivia is not shy about going to extremes when it comes to dating, so she wants to immerse herself in this strange new world to see if it's possible to meet your match in virtual reality. Is it a passing fad or a certain future? And could she find true love in a fake world? 

In Unreal! With Olivia Neill – a new pilot for BBC Three and BBC Northern Ireland – Olivia embarks on a journey across the UK both physically and virtually to meet companies at the cutting edge of this technology and the real-life people who’ve not only found love and relationships online, but found themselves again.
