Love Island's stunning brunette bombshell Anna Vakili has sadly revealed she felt "unattractive" when she was on the show.

The reality star and social media influencer, 30, opened up about her biggest insecurity that took over her when she walked into the villa back in 2018.

Writing in her column for Daily Star, Anna shared: "Looking back, me and Yewande used to always talk about how unattractive we felt at the start which now seems so silly."

The TV star added that she would secretly cry to herself in the toilets when the cameras stopped rolling.

She continued: "I wish I could go back and talk to that Anna that shed a few tears in the toilet when the cameras weren't filming."

Thankfully, Anna says Love Island ended up boosting her overall confidence, and that she eventually realised "you can't be everyone's type".

She said: "Realistically, looking back now the whole experience has made me even more confident despite those original feelings."

"Just because they have thrown a few guys in there that all like a similar look that doesn't mean you ain't poppin' girl!" Anna concluded.

Anna is one of the most memorable stars to have graced the Mallorcan villa.

During her time on the show, she was briefly dating Jordan Hames until he had his head turned by India Reynolds – just one week after asking Anna to be his girlfriend.

It comes after Anna recently revealed she's reversing £100,000 of surgery and body modifications as she wants a more "natural look".

Speaking to The Sun, the Love Islander said: "If I could get all the money back that I've spent on fillers, hair extensions, my teeth, boobs and everything like that – I would be rich!!!"

She added: "I feel like everything is a trend and everyone is going more towards the natural look now!"

The reversals will not come cheap as Anna is planning on paying £12,000 on the boob reduction, though she is offsetting the costs by not spending out on fillers and by having shorter nail extensions.

Anna has said that the filler in her nose, chin and jaw have now dissolved and she would not be looking to have them done again.

She said: "All these things I've stopped. My face is going a lot more back to how it naturally looked."

The reality star has insisted that she will be keeping her lip fillers as she says that bigger lips "suit her face" but won't "go overboard".

Anna is also gifted Botox three times a year and she said that she will continue with the procedure.
