Surfer ditched pasta and lost two stone!

She's not been short of admirers since entering the Love Island villa, and now the secrets of Lucie Donlan's sensational figure have been revealed.

Ahead of the show, the Cornwall-born surfer embarked on a health kick which saw her lose two stone and drop from a size 12 to a size 6.

"When I was younger I’d always eat chocolates and pasta," Lucie told OK! magazine.

However, she said that when she started modelling at the age of 17, she realised that her attitude towards her body needed to change.

I realised I needed to lose a bit of weight to be healthy. I don’t drink or smoke, and I eat well and exercise.

She said: "I realised I needed to lose a bit of weight to be healthy. I don’t drink or smoke, and I eat well and exercise."

"The second time I’d just had a break-up because I cheated. Then I was heartbroken about the guy I cheated with, because I thought we’d be together but he brushed me off," she said.

As Ent Daily reported, newcomer Tommy last night decided to couple up with Lucie, breaking up the blonde's romance with Joe, who were the bookies' early favourites to win the show.
