Let’s have a look at which Love Island stars have transformed their looks in the pursuit of finding love

And each year fans are stunned when the reality star’s dreaded throwback pictures resurface the internet.

Love Island 2021 contestant Sharon Gaffka – who got into an argument with PE teacher Hugo Hammond about him not being attracted to “fake” women – has had some work done in the past to feel better about herself.

And she’s not the only one as Faye Winter has confessed to receiving breast implants for her 18th birthday and opened up about one of her major Botox fails that caused her eyebrows to droop.

Let’s have a look at some of the transformations from over the years…

Sharon Gaffka

Sharon has transformed her look over the years

Sharon looks fresh-faced in a throwback to her beauty queen days before becoming a civil servant.

The 25-year-old civil servant made her TV debut last Monday as one of the first girls to enter the famous villa.

Days later it was revealed that she won the Miss Crown & Glory UK in 2014.

Sharon would have been just 18 at the time, and looks remarkably different in a snap that has been shared by the pageant on Instagram.

The beauty has confessed to having her boobs done and lip filler

In the photo, she is posing alongside a group of other women, beaming with her winner’s crown and sash on display.

Faye Winter

Faye’s lips look considerably smaller in this old picture

The estate agent looks totally different in a throwback snap before she got lip fillers and Botox.

She made her villa debut last week and confessed to having various cosmetic procedures in her video trailer.

The 26-year-old is almost unrecognisable to her former self, with an old snap posted to her Instagram account revealing her natural lips.

In the photo, Faye has also swapped her slick blonde locks for wild curls.

The beauty has been open and honest about what surgery she’s had done

She posed in the mirror for a selfie in an Adidas bodysuit and a pair of fluffy socks.

Gazing seductively at the camera, the beauty is unsmiling in the 2019 snap.

Faye had much fuller lips when she entered the Love Island last week and opened up about one of her procedures.

She giggled that the wrinkle-freezing procedure made her look like “a hard faced cow”.

Megan Barton-Hanson

Megan looks completely unrecognisable in this throwback snap

Megan made her debut on the show in 2018 and certainly left a lasting impression with her stunning looks.

However she’s not always looked the way she does.

In one old picture that resurfaced the world wide web, the reality star looked completely unrecognisable.

The beauty claims that she had her first procedure done at 17 – when she got her ears pinned back after being bullied at school.

Megan was a huge hit in the villa back in 2018

The former islander also had a rhinoplasty before she approached her 20th birthday.

Megan has also had her lips injected with filler and a breast augmentation.

The star has reportedly spent £40,000 on surgery to alter the way she looks over the years.

Chloe Crowhurst

Season three star Chloe Crowhurst is almost unrecognisable from her younger self.

Photos unearthed from the 25-year-old’s MySpace page show the reality star larking about with pals outside the school gates and at slumber parties.

The Essex girl rocked mousy brown short hair, a fringe and a face full of makeup consisting of heavy eyeliner, lots of blush and lightly drawn eyebrows.

Nowadays Chloe looks totally different with long blonde hair and fuller lips.

Speaking to MailOnline, Dr Dan Marsh of the Plastic Surgery Group previously said: “Out of all the girls I’d say Chloe has had the most amount of work done to her face.

“Chloe has probably over indulged in having lip fillers here, I’d also say she’s had Botox in the forehead, around the eyes and frown line.

“I would also suggest a possible nose job and obvious breast implants.”

There’s also no sign of her perfect white smile, with her natural wide grin exposing train track braces over her top teeth.

Chris Hughes

Chris Hughes – who shot to fame on the third series of the show – has also transformed his looks over the years.

The cheeky chappy certainly had all the girls in a frenzy with his buff bod, comb over quiff and cracking smile.

However he hasn’t always looked like the hunk he is today.

A secondary school photo shared on Twitter show a cute little lad with a butter wouldn’t melt smile as he cuddles a female pal for a photo.

Another lad who’s had the girls in a frenzy is Chris Hughes

The 28-year-old made quite the impression when he arrived in the ITV2 villa, spending the first half of his time in the villa smooching with Chloe Crowhurst.

He also told new girl Gabby Allen that he didn’t like her “fake look” and that didn’t fancy her at all.

Chris went on to place third alongside Olivia Attwood.

The pair gave it a go back in the UK but soon went their separate ways.

Dominic Lever

Dominic Lever also starred in the the third series of the show in 2017.

He certainly made an impression on Jessica Shears, with his chiselled figure and cheeky chappy charm helping him woo her into bed.

However, he used to sport a questionable barnet, with luscious shoulder-length locks.

Four years on and the pair are still together – they’ve got married and have also welcomed their son into the world October last year.

Tyne-Lexy Clarson

Dr Marsh told the Mail how he suspects she’s had a boob job and veneers to boost her look
Brummie lass Tyne-Lexy boasted how she once turned down an offer of £40,000 for a date when she appeared on the show four years ago.

Her dazzling eyes have impressed, but she failed to find a connection with any of the lads.

The reality star looks very different to how she did when she was younger and Dr Marsh thinks she’s gone under the knife.

He told the Mail how he suspects she’s had a boob job and veneers to boost her look since her 18th birthday.

Kem Cetinay

Kem looked very different before he entered the villa in 2017

Kem Cetinay was barely been seen with a shirt during his time in the villa, and it’s no surprise with his muscular body.

Although it was clear he put in some serious time in the gym before making his TV debut, with old Instagram snaps showing a far more average looking physique.

The graft seems to have worked as he was one of the first people of the series to have sex with pocket rocket Amber Davies.

Since winning the show Amber and Kem have gone their separate ways, with the beauty appearing in musicals and Kem landing various roles in TV.
