My, how you’ve changed! Love Island stars look barely recognisable in old snaps

Love Island Australia’s Sophie Monk has previously boasted that the Islanders are ‘unapologetically stunning’ and ‘hot as b**ls.’

And while fans of the raunchy new reality TV show are used to seeing the contestants parade their toned and ripped figures in their villa, some might now recognise the good-looking stars in old throwback snaps. 

Daily Mail Australia takes a look at some of the fan-favourite contestants, with single mother-of-one Kim Hartnett, 21, having recently boasted about having plastic surgery.

Blonde bombshell Kim was previously a brunette, and looks dramatically different with her dark hair in snaps from 2013.  

She recently revealed to NW magazine that she’s had two boob jobs and regularly gets filler and injectables in her face.  

The Brisbane native admitted: ‘I’ve had two boob jobs and I have filler and injectables done to my face all the time. I get my cheeks done, [and] lips and Botox a couple of times a year too.’  

Flashback: Kim, who has the words 'imperfection is beauty' tattooed on her arm, first went under the knife aged just 18

Doctors advised her to get smaller breast implants to avoid stretching the skin of her small frame, but Kim chose to have a second operation to make her chest even larger.

Brisbane blonde Kim is currently Love Island’s only parent. She shares two-year-old son Braxton with an ex-partner Jamie, who she dated for four years.

The blonde nurse, 23, told NW that she has DD implants, but admitted her doctor thought the implants were too big for her chest.  

‘I wanted to get [my breasts] bigger, but the doctor said I had a too-small chest bone and I was like, ‘f**k you!” Erin said.

Like Erin, Instagram model Natasha Cherie, 23, also had breast implants although she’s less enthusiastic about discussing the procedure.

‘Yeah I have fake boobs, but can we pass on this? I don’t want to talk about it,’ she said.  

Fellow Perth resident Tayla Damir, 21, was far more open when asked about cosmetic procedures, declaring: ‘Lip filler saved my life.’

‘Lip filler saved my life. I’m very honest… I had uneven lips – not now because of the filler.’

‘I’m open to that and I’m happy for it to be written about,’ the radio presenter said.  

Tayla, who is half Lebanese, works as a model and as a radio host on Triple Z FM.

In one snap from 2013, Tayla looks fresh-faced as she stuns in a yellow dress, when she competed in Miss Universe Australia, representing WA.
