She spilled the beans during an interview with Capital recently.

"I actually was the hugest One Direction fan when I was younger," the singer confessed.

"This is sort of embarrassing but I’m going to tell you anyway – I used to write One Direction fan fiction when I was in middle school."

"Just cheesy stuff like, 'Oh, Harry [Styles] proposes to you,' and stuff like that."

"I was that die hard of a fan," Olivia admitted.

So you can imagine how surreal it felt when Niall reached out to her.

"The fact that [Niall’s] reached out to me is amazing, we’ve actually been texting."

"He’s been giving me advice about the craziness of the music industry," the 17-year-old explained.

This comes a little over a week after Olivia released Drivers License, which is her debut single.

It's currently sitting at number one on the Official Irish Singles Charts and has become a massive hit on TikTok.

Not only do fans love the track, but they love the alleged story behind it.

Some think it was written about her on-screen boyfriend in the HSM series, Joshua Bassett, following rumours they dated.

And keep SPIN loud to hear Drivers License on your radio.
