Love Island star Laura Anderson has opened up about her breast augmentation surgery in a beautifully honest post.

The reality star explained that she had recently decided to undergo a breast reduction. She had her first breast augmentation at the age of 18 but stressed that even though she was mentally mature for her age, she “really had no idea who I was or what I was doing to my body”.

Laura said that people aren’t warned about the impact surgery will have on you later in life.

“Here’s what they don’t tell you, every surgery has repercussions years down the line so this quick fix mentality which we all suffer from from time to time will most definitely come back to bite you in the ass.”

She stressed, “It's not like buying a pair of jeans that don’t fit so you just take them back. There's no refunds when it comes to interfering with our bodies.

“Being completely honest, after seeing myself on TV I realised that my chest looked way too big for my frame and after many shooting pains in my left boob I knew it was time for a change.

“My original implants were so large that over time I’ve actually stretched my skin and breast pocket so much that I was told my choices would now be limited. This is just something I would never have thought about all those years ago,” Laura admitted.

She even said that if she could go back in time then she wouldn’t have had the surgery.

“Having no implants and to be natural is honestly the person I feel inside. I just want to say to young girls or guys out there that think surgery is the answer to all their problems, just know the decision to go under the knife is huge and really has its consequences.”

“My message to you is yes fashion changes, but our bodies don’t need to!” she concluded.

Love Island’s Jourdan Riane has confirmed her breakup from Danny Williams in an emotional open letter.

The reality star stressed that she has to respect herself before anyone else in the moving read. She explained that she enjoyed her relationship with her Love Island co-star but explained that she has boundaries.

“I don’t regret the decisions I’ve made as far as choosing to give someone a chance however, I have boundaries. In a relationship there are things I won’t tolerate. Lack of respect, disloyalty & dishonesty are amongst those things,” she wrote.

“I know people will come with the “I told you so”, “you should’ve listened” (maybe it’s true) & more than likely snigger/laugh at my situation.,” she added.

However, despite her heartache, Jourdan said that her mum raised her to be a strong woman and to “always give the benefit of the doubt and let people prove themselves to you”.

Jourdan explained that this is exactly what she did but things didn’t work out with Danny, “I went into this with a genuine heart & real intention to make it work. The love was as real as the hurt is now.”

Earlier in the week, reports said that Jourdan had confronted Danny about flirting and messaging other women behind her back, but he denied and laughed at her accusations.

We have started spending a hell of a lot more time in front of the telly due to the dreary, dark autumn evenings. We’re swiftly running out of series to watch, but thankfully Love Island is here to save us from tuning into Fair City.

The Winter Love Island will air sooner than we expected and we’re feeling super excited about it.

The show will return to our screens on January 8 so mark your calendars!

A source told Mail Online, "The new Winter Love Island will launch the second week of January.

"Bosses are still deciding on the final date but it is thought to be January 8, a week after staff arrive in South Africa.”

There will be one major difference in the winter series. Apparently the show will only run for six weeks rather than eight.

January is always such a miserable time. It’s freezing cold, our bank accounts are empty and our stash of Christmas chocolate is dwindling so the Winter Love Island is bound to brighten our spirits.

Love Island’s Camilla Thurlow has opened up about her mental health struggles on Elizabeth Day’s How To Fail podcast.

The former reality star opened up about she “entertained” thoughts about suicide and not being alive.

She told Elizabeth, “It's difficult for the people around you of course, if you're a people pleaser as soon as you start disappointing the people around you because you're feeling like that then you're trapped in that, is just a constant negative spiral."

She shared: "You start to entertain thoughts about what not being alive would be like, even if it's just letting that cross your mind or whether it becomes a more serious thought pattern.

Camilla explained how she constantly felt uneasy, “It starts to become unbearable to be inside my own head all the time and I get completely trapped in it, trapped in a really sort of negative spiral."

"It's hard to talk about this necessarily, it's not that the other option becomes any less terrifying but when life becomes unbearable like that you start to think in a different way, it starts to change the way you look at everything."

The Love Island star said she descended into self-loathing, “I'd had it before so this year it was a recurrence and was managed a lot better. But immediately before Love Island I was in a very, very difficult phase and I really struggled to see a way out of it.

"It's when you can't see a way out, there's no light because you don't think that there's light at the end of the tunnel."

Love Island’s Greg O’ Shea is a single man after (reportedly) dumping Amber Gill via text earlier this month. The Irishman quickly went from being heralded as the nation’s hero to being called a snake, but the backlash hasn’t stopped him.

The Love Island star has landed a host of gigs, including a presenting role on RTÉ 2FM.

He recently joined RTÉ at the National Ploughing Championships to chat about life after Love Island and even shared his dating advice with the public.

The reality star stressed that he hates online dating and stressed that he’d never use them so you can bid farewell to your hopes of seeing him pop up on Tinder.

He told RTÉ, “One big one, for me anyway, is to stay away from the online apps – Tinder, Bumble and all that – and just meet someone organically.”

Greg stressed that meeting someone in person is far better than searching for love online. He encouraged the public to go back to traditional dating methods, like walking up to someone at a bar or asking someone for their number in a coffee shop.

“It’s very rare to walk up to a woman nowadays and actually strike up a conversation and ask her on a date so that’s what I’d say to everyone,” he told the audience.

We can’t imagine many people will turn to Greg for dating advice, especially after how he played a game and mistreated queen Amber.

Love Island star Maura Higgins isn't one to withhold vital information, including about shenanigans from the Spanish villa that she may have caused.

"Some nights you get one glass of wine, some nights you get two, you either get a choice of beer or wine, I always choose wine," Maura explained.

"One night I went into the larder where the drinks get prepared and there's like a water dispenser there. I went in before everyone else and I downed everyone's wine and I filled it up with water.

"And I got in really big trouble. The whole island got punished the following night because I got really drunk. I shouldn't have probably said that. I'll get in big trouble now!"

We can relate to the struggle of craving some vino, especially if we were on a stressful reality show fighting off other gals to find love.

The Longford native has also divulged on other behind-the-scenes secrets from the reality show, admitting that some scenes were reshot.

"Yeah, we did re-shoot," Maura said. "Just say, for instance, if a text came through and you weren't loud enough or if you stumbled on your words, you'd have to re-take obviously."

Kevin Clifton isn't holding his opinions back about his Strictly Come Dancing co-star AJ Pritchard, suggesting that the fellow professional dancer tried to steal Stacey Dooley for himself last year.

Appearing on a one-off Strictly special, which will air on Saturday night, Kevin speaks about the process of the dancers and contestants testing their compatibility with a 'speed dance'.

The dance features the celebrities and professionals dance briefly with each other, before they're placed in their various partnerships.

According to The Sun, Kevin claims he was ‘going for it’ with Stacey while they were dancing in a salsa circle, but AJ later swooped in and tried to pull Stacey away for a one-on-one talk.

"Last year with Stacey in the salsa circle, I was going for it… overdoing it," Kevin says.

"At one point, we were on a coffee break and AJ interrupted us in the middle of us talking and took her away," he added. "He wanted to get to know her and see what she was about."

Kevin is partnered with Anneka Rice on this year's Strictly, but was recently forced to deny claims that he’s "fuming" with the pairing and insisted he’s having a "wicked time" with Anneka in rehearsals.

Love Island couples are having a bumpy ride over the last few days, between Anton Danyluk and Belle Hassan's break-up and Greg O'Shea ruthlessly dumping Amber Gill by text (rude).

According to MailOnline, model India “grabbed and kissed” Kieran at the party, with a source claiming that she was overheard saying: “If Kieran made it official with me, I would dump Ovie.”

India has denied the claims with a representative for the third place contestant adding that the allegations are “absolutely not true. They've been friends for years”.

Time will tell whether Ovie will address the cheating rumours, but he's a chill man. We reckon he'll ignore the hype and focus on treating his lady like the gent he is.

"The interest in him will be huge when he gets back in the ring, especially if he can keep up his profile. He’s only 20 years old. He’s been boxing his whole life, a year out won’t hurt him."

Tyson is preparing for his next fight on Saturday against Swede Otto Wallin at the T-Mobile arena in Las Vegas, which Tommy may be supporting him at.
