Here’s a little me update 😊 I feel like I’m in better shape now than when I first went into Love Island. It’s been a lot of hard work but it’s starting to pay off and I’ve still got a while to go until I’m completely happy with myself. I would never have worn this @bluebella cut-away swimsuit on holiday a year ago. I’m not skinny, not fat, and certainly not perfect, but I’m much more confident in myself which is my main goal! When I left the Love Island villa I was taken through the airport by one of the ITV team and a man shouted across the airport to me “You’ve been chucked out already because you’ve got too many stretch marks”... He was a Middle Aged man with his wife and young children at the time and I was so shocked that he could say something like that to someone he didn’t know, especially a young girl. I’ll be honest it definitely did dent my confidence at the time, I was barely 20-years-old it was hard for me to cope with this sort of abuse. I’ve never been a very slim girl and yes I do have stretch marks and you know what ITS NORMAL. I retreated into myself for quite a bit after Love Island, it’s been a crazy and challenging journey but now I feel so much stronger and ready to take on the world. We’re all different in every single way and I think it’s time to put less pressure on ourselves to be “perfect” to start recognising the perfect imperfections everyone has 🥰

Tyne-Lexy lost the weight on a diet and fitness regime devised by the experts from Forza Supplements, which involved taking its Shake It Slim meal replacement shakes and Weight Loss Gummies which taste like Haribo sweets.

Tyne said: "I would have lost the weight anyway by eating well and exercising but the Forza gummies definitely sped things up. They just give you a little extra help when you are trying to get in shape.

"They are totally yummy, just like Haribos - they are so delicious you have to be careful not to eat them like normal sweets. But they do take the edge off your appetite with natural ingredients and really work well.

"I've been giving away packs to some of my old mates from Love Island because they work so well."
