These are the WILDEST transformations from the cast of Love Island 2019

Tommy was swole af when he was fifteen, obviously


Love Island 2019 is drawing to a close. Dozens of wannabe sponcon merchants have come and gone, and we're days away from knowing who's getting the £50k.

Looking at the cast's social media you won't believe the way some of these people have morphed into the beautiful specimens on our screens.

Honestly, these transformations are INSANE – check them out:

Greg O'Shea

You know Greg, he's the fit one with the fit voice and the fit tattoos and the fit everything. Believe it or not Greg has always been fit. Here he is looking much more ripped than his pasty mates:

Here he is now and shock horror he's still fitter than his mates. I hope you feel rewarded:

Harley Brash

We know Harley looks like this now:

But Harley's transformation was hard to pinpoint until we found this side-by-side pic of her looking very different:

I can Harley believe it

Chris Taylor

Chris is a man with silly hair and even sillier tattoos. I mean, just look at the state of him:

But have Chris's hair and tattoos always been this silly? Well no word on the tattoos but his hair has actually not changed a bit. Look at him wearing this quite dorky suit:

We stan a lift selfie King.

India Reynolds

India has had a wild old time. She's been on PornHub, modelled for lads mags, and posed with Lucie and guns for weird calendars (???)

Her old modelling pics for Lovehoney are quite something:

These days she looks like this:

Not a whole lot has changed but what can you do?

Joanna Chimonides

Famous for poaching Michael from Amber, and then having a weird conference with both of them after the fact, Joanna has been one of the more noteworthy additions to the villa. In 2014, Joanna sported decidedly darker hair:

These days she's rocking a a mid-length hairdo, and has discovered adequate lighting. Thank God:

Belle Hassan

They say people will do anything for fame, but Belle, bless her, has shaved Anton's arse. She will go to her grave having done that. Anyway, back in the day Belle had very dark hair:

However she has since dyed it a very nice shiny blonde:

Image may contain: Pub, Bar Counter, Gown, Fashion, Robe, Evening Dress, Apparel, Clothing, Person, Human

At a guess I would say those nails are about 20cm long.

George Rains

George of no discernible personality fame used to look like the rugby boy who broke your heart in secondary school:

via Instagram (@georgerainsofficial)

Yes, you're right – his hair was bad. George has since packed on an unfair amount of muscle and looks like he'd fit in with a very prep school reimagining of Baywatch:

Image may contain: Outdoors, Man, Human, Person

In addition to a chest the size of a small barrel he has also found an even worse way to style his hair. Progress!

Marvin Brookes

I won't lie I had no idea someone called Marvin was on Love Island but apparently he is and he looks like this:

Image may contain: Man, Sunglasses, Accessory, Accessories, Person, Human

via Instagram (@marvinbrookes)

As if he weren't lame enough he's also done that bumout thing where he got rid of all his old pics, so here's a pic of him playing football in 2017:

Jourdan Riane

Right hold on to your motherfucking hats because this one will blow your mind so hard it'll fly out of your ears. Jourdan used to be BLONDE:

Image may contain: Photo, Portrait, Photography, Woman, Girl, Kid, Child, Teen, Blonde, Female, Person, Face, Human

via Instagram (@jourdanriane)

Now she is NOT BLONDE:

Image may contain: Female, Clothing, Apparel, Face, Person, Human

via Instagram (@jourdanriane)

Round of applause for Jourdan, ladies and gents.

Ovie Soko

Like Marvin, Ovie is also lame because the oldest pic of him on his Instagram is from 2017:

Image may contain: Female, Chair, Sitting, Face, Furniture, Shorts, Apparel, Clothing, Human, Person

via Instagram (@oviesoko)

But unlike Marvin, he is not lame because just look at him:

Image may contain: Skin, Man, Face, Human, Person

Just stunning, I'm sure you'll agree.

Molly-Mae Hague

Molly is only 20, and her look has changed as much as you'd expect from someone who recently became a fashion YouTuber. Here she is a few years ago:

Image may contain: Woman, Girl, Portrait, Photography, Photo, Female, Person, Face, Human

Molly-Mae is on the left (via Instagram @_liveymae)

Nowadays M-M looks decidedly more glam and even managed to blag her way into Coachella:

Callum Macleod

Callum has had quite the glow-up. I mean look at him then:

Image may contain: Photography, Portrait, Photo, Man, Poster, Text, Advertisement, Shirt, Clothing, Apparel, Face, Person, Human, Accessory, Accessories, Tie

Not that there's anything wrong with embracing a haircut that looks like a cross between Jay from The Inbetweeners and an actual porcupine, but look at Callum now:

Image may contain: Man, Clothing, Apparel, Person, Face, Human

I won't lie, I regularly forget Callum exists, but you have to appreciate the shift he's obviously put in at the gymnasium. His 0.3 seconds of screen time over the last few episodes don't bode well for the 28-year-old, but he will always have his abs.

Joe Garratt

Someone who was at Solent University with Joe told The Tab the Islander lost loads of weight while he was living it up in Lucia Foster Welch halls.

Image may contain: Man, Scarf, Suit, Coat, Overcoat, Person, Human, Clothing, Apparel

The Mirror "revealed" Joe's "chubby past" earlier this week, using pictures of him from Instagram rocking a decidedly fuller face:

Image may contain: Portrait, Photography, Photo, Clothing, Apparel, Head, Face, Person, Human

These days, Joe's rig is a bit more sculpted and he's managed to manipulate his body fat into disappearing. Just look at him:

Image may contain: Apparel, Clothing, Shorts, Sports, Sport, Person, Human

Tom Walker

Tom is obscenely attractive. Like, he's what you'd call scary fit. Just LOOK at him:

Christ alive. But did you know Tom used to wear t-shirts with necks so low half his man cleavage would be full on exposed? Check it out:

Some glow-ups are subtle, ladies and gents. Here's a whole article dedicated to fit pics of Tom.

Anton Danyluk

Anton is shredded to an unprecedented degree. According to The Sun, he managed the feat of body-morphing using an intense regime of calorie-cutting and gym-smashing.

Image may contain: Skin, Fitness, Sport, Sports, Working Out, Exercise, Torso, Man, Person, Human

Anton's Instagram was largely scrubbed clean of any evidence of him being anything other than a walking advert for protein shakes, save for transformation photos he's done to prove a point.

Maura Higgins

In Love Island terms Maura is a billion years older than her fellow Islanders. When she was Tommy's age, he a 12-year-old posting weird shit on his Facebook. The changes in her appearance have not gone unnoticed:

Amber Gill

In all honesty Amber hasn’t changed much. She’s always been pretty and her hair has always been big and curly. Most of her early Instagrams show her posing in clubs you’d never get into with bottles of booze you can’t afford.

Image may contain: Skirt, Sleeve, Footwear, Furniture, Chair, Person, Human, Clothing, Apparel

She is 16 in this photo, believe it or not

The most wholesome pic by far is a collage posted by her ex-boyfriend, under which she comments that she loves him. Awh.

Image may contain: Head, Clothing, Apparel, Person, Human, Collage, Advertisement, Poster

Amber has maintained her art of posing with wine glasses and smiling. How lovely.

Lucie Donlan

Image may contain: Surfboard, Sea Waves, Sport, Surfing, Sports, Person, Human, Nature, Ocean, Outdoors, Water, Sea

We know that Lucie’s Instagram is full of obscenely fit pictures of her, and that she used to date Charlie from last year’s series, but what happens when we scroll even further back into her past?

Image may contain: Head, Girl, Photo, Portrait, Photography, Woman, Female, Smile, Human, Face, Person

Like Amber, Lucie hasn’t changed much. The Bev apologist has been posing on beaches with surfboards since 2013. She's traded wetsuits for bikinis, though.

Elma Pazar

Elma's oldest Insta is from 2015 and the only tagged photos of her she seems to have permitted are those posted by her sister. In this photo she wears a very big hat:

These days Elma does not wear as many hats, which most definitely makes this a glow-down.

Anna Vakili

Debate has run wild as to whether Anna has had surgery or not, which may or may not have to do with the angle her bum is pictured from.

Image may contain: High Heel, Woman, Dress, Shoe, Footwear, Female, Human, Person, Apparel, Clothing

Yewande Biala

Image may contain: Graduation, Footwear, Shoe, Helmet, Clothing, Apparel, Human, Person

The eternally ignored Yewande’s clean up of her social media has been methodical and, for our purposes, infuriating.

Image may contain: Night Life, Pants, Person, Human, Footwear, Shoe, Clothing, Apparel

The scientist's earliest Insta, including those she's tagged in, is from her at her graduation from the Athlone Institute of Technology in 2016.

Amy Hart

Before Amy was the blonde smiley one in the villa, she was… a blonde and smiley girl whose first Instagram was captioned: “I need a lesson in camera pics.”

Image may contain: Face, Iphone, Person, Human, Cell Phone, Electronics, Phone, Mobile Phone

Christ just look at that phone case

Like Curtis, her wholesome vibes are painfully apparent:

Image may contain: Woman, Railing, Palm Tree, Arecaceae, Tree, Theme Park, Amusement Park, Plant, Female, Apparel, Shorts, Clothing, Human, Person

These days, it would appear Amy bathes in the pure light of Huji:

Image may contain: Footwear, Shoe, Fashion, Robe, Evening Dress, Gown, Human, Person, Clothing, Apparel

Danny Williams

Danny is what you'd call the anti Tommy. Clearly he's scrubbed his socials squeaky clean of anything more than a few years old. Here's a pic of him with very bright hair from the hazy past of 2017:

Now here is a more recent picture of him pretending to be a horse while Jade from Little Mix rides him:

Hard to definitively say whether this is a glow-up or not.

Sherif Lanre

Sherif, like most of the girls, is largely unchanged from the 16-year-old who played for Old Alleynian Rugby Club in Dulwich. This is a picture of him doing just that:

Image may contain: American Football, Shorts, Football, Helmet, Team Sport, Sports, Team, Sport, Apparel, Clothing, People, Human, Person

Like Yewande, his social media has been either methodically cleaned or lazily updated, but he's most definitely packed on a little more muscle.

Image may contain: Table, Home Decor, Cushion, Sitting, Living Room, Room, Indoors, Human, Person, Clothing, Footwear, Apparel, Shoe, Furniture, Couch

Michael Griffiths

Michael used to be a barman at Empire in Liverpool. Here he is looking a little skinnier and more afro'd.

Image may contain: Game, Gambling, Skin, Mobile Phone, Electronics, Phone, Cell Phone, Bar Counter, Pub, Worker, Bartender, Human, Person

It's safe to say the firefighter has expanded his arsenal since his time at John Moores University. Those guns are obviously fully loaded. Pow pow.

Image may contain: Sneaker, Running Shoe, Human, Person, Clothing, Footwear, Apparel, Shoe

Tommy Fury

Tommy Fury is the biggest man alive and I will go to my grave swearing there is no one bigger. He is, indeed, a chungus. Case in point, he looked like this in 2016:

Image may contain: Gym, Fitness, Human, Sports, Person, Working Out, Exercise, Sport

Fucking hell – look at that pump. In this picture he would have been 16 or 17. At that age you were a weed. You still are.

Scroll even further back through his Insta and you'll see that Tommy was bigger in 2014 than you will ever be in your whole life.

Image may contain: Transportation, Vehicle, Bicycle, Bike, Gym, Sports, Fitness, Working Out, Exercise, Sport, Person, Human

Just wow.

Image may contain: Sports Car, Alloy Wheel, Shoe, Clothing, Footwear, Apparel, Car Wheel, Spoke, Tire, Human, Person, Wheel, Machine, Car, Vehicle, Automobile, Transportation

Curtis Pritchard

We knew Curtis was a dancer back in the day, and that he used to galavant across the shiny floors of Ireland's version of Strictly. Obviously this involved him wearing outfits like this:

Image may contain: Female, Apparel, Clothing, Dance Pose, Leisure Activities, Person, Human

Curtis has quickly made a name for himself as "the wholesome one," coupling up with Amy and doling out sagely wisdom to anyone who'll listen (and some who won't). The deep cuts of his Insta reveal he has always been this way:

Image may contain: Sleeve, Long Sleeve, Jeans, Denim, Display, Electronics, Monitor, Screen, Man, Floor, Indoors, Interior Design, Suit, Overcoat, Person, Human, Blazer, Jacket, Coat, Pants, Clothing, Apparel

Isn't that cute? You'd trust him to take your little sister to her school leavers' disco. Nowadays he's a big fan of the smoulder. Observe:

Image may contain: Kilt, Tartan, Plaid, Skirt, Long Sleeve, Human, Person, Sleeve, Apparel, Clothing

Jordan Hames

Jordan is a model, so obviously his Instagram makes for fairly pleasant viewing throughout. These days he rocks a luxury Parklife kind of look:

Butt the very arse-end of his feed you'll find this quite sweet pic of him and his mates in the football changing rooms:

It's important to hold on to your roots.
