Shaughna Phillips denies claims that she’s edited her latest bikini snap

‘My body is definitely NOT edited’: Love Island’s Shaughna Phillips denies claims she’s photoshopped her latest bikini snap and assures fans she is sticking to her no-editing promise

Shaughna Phillips set the record straight on Sunday by denying that she’d photoshopped her body in her latest sun-kissed snap.

The Love Island beauty, 27, shared a jaw-dropping picture with her 1.5million Instagram followers, flaunting her figure in a lilac bikini with the caption ‘hot girl summer is thirsty work’. 

But not long after, she took to her story, sharing a before and after version of the original snap – stating that she had not altered how her body looks.

The notable difference in the before and after versions was the use of a filter but Shaughna also detailed another change she had made.

‘Just a lil message to the people saying I’ve photoshopped my last picture. My body is not edited, I’m pretty sure the sleuths that look for dodgy lines in the background will tell you [laughing emoji],’ she explained.

She continued by admitting which part of the picture she had tweaked.

‘I’ve deffo edited out the massive spot I’ve inherited on the side of my face though. I said a few weeks ago that there will be zero editing of my body from that moment on and I meant it x’.

The catalyst for Shaughna explaining herself could well have been a follower’s comment, which had suggested her use of Photoshop. 

‘We just saw u on live t.v. on after sun, u don’t need the Photoshop pics. Ur beautiful in ur own skin,’ they wrote.

Shaughna responded by calling it ‘the best compliment ever’ because the picture is ‘10000% not photoshopped’.

This is not the only Photoshop accusation the star has received, as last month, fans began to notice a wonky building in the background of one of her pictures.

They then accused the reality star of altering her pictures, unleashing Shaughna’s rage.

As one follower commented: ‘Photoshopppppppppppppppp’, Shaughna replied ‘Jesus Christ judging by your pictures you should try it’.

She didn’t reply to comments of a similar nature, with one commenting: ‘Teaching young women it’s okay to not feel happy in you’re own body is wrong whats with all the photoshop and surgery gives of the wrong impression for young girls don’t you think?’

Another concerned fan penned: ‘I hope one day you’ll be confident enough to uploaded a true photo where you haven’t manipulated your body. You should be proud of how you actually look’.  

Other comments on the snap read: ‘It will be nice to see some unedited photos too…’ and ‘The wonky lines though’.
