The 41-year-old was the stepdaughter of best-selling author Lucinda Riley, who wrote the Seven Sisters series of books.

Laszlo Dancs, 28, appeared at the Old Bailey today where he pleaded guilty to causing death by dangerous driving.

He also admitted driving while intoxicated with a controlled prescription drug over the prescribed limit, and driving while over the alcohol limit.

Dancs, who denied refusing a breathalyser test, was bailed ahead of sentencing on July 28.

Olivia was walking her dogs on Cheyne Walk on May 14 last year when Dancs ploughed into her his Audi TT.

Tragically she couldn’t be saved and was declared dead at the scene.

Tributes flooded in for the dog walker, who had been managing her stepmother’s estate following her death from cancer in 2021.

Her sister wrote on Facebook: “Early [on Saturday] my sister Livi was doing what she loved: walking her three dogs, which as everyone knows were her pride and joy.

“Heartbreakingly, she was involved in a fatal accident in Chelsea and passed away at the scene.

“Livi was the brightest light in the lives of everyone who knew her, a ray of positivity which beamed wherever she went.

“It is hard to put into words how special, magical and loving she was.

“Her legacy lives on in the hearts of her adoring family and friends, whom she touched with her unfaltering spirit and kindness.”

While her uncle Mark said: “She was beautiful, fun-loving, she just lit up the room for everybody.

“She had to deal with the recent death of stepmother. The sequence of events is just horrible.

“Livi just made everyone laugh, she was the most pleasant individual that anybody could hope to meet.

“Certainly the tributes that have been pouring in … are all saying the same thing, that she was one in a million and nobody can come to terms with this tragedy, this loss. She saw the best in everyone and lived life to the full.”
