Emma - fig trees are supposed to have their roots severely contained to help them fruit. If you have a really large container I'd be tempted to keep it in that. Alternatively if it really does outgrow the pot, plant it in the garden but dig a very deep wide hole and block in the sides with upright paving slabs or thick wood to prevent the roots spreading.
As for the olive tree, I guess it will need a sunnier and hotter climate than ours in the UK to fruit reliably.
