In other Love Island news, it was recently reported that Ellie Brown had a secret boob job just before Christmas.

A source close to the star told The Sun: "Ellie absolutely loves her new boobs – she’s a curvy woman and has always felt having bigger breasts would suit her more.

"She feels they make her body look in proportion and has loved showing them off in low-cut dresses on nights out.

"Ellie was keen not to publicise her surgery on Instagram as she has lots of young followers and wanted to be careful not to influence them in any way.

"She did this for herself and it has 100 per cent improved her confidence – she feels sexier and more womanly."
