Love Island star Shaughna Phillips has revealed the dramatic results of her decision to overhaul her lifestyle.

Shaughna, 30, who competed in the 2020 series of the reality dating competition, revealed her dramatic weight loss in an Instagram post on Sunday.

In the caption, the reality TV star admitted she’d even ‘shocked’ herself with how much progress she’d made after being told by doctors she was putting her health at risk.

‘So this has been happening. I’ll be honest, even I’m shocked. So glad I’ve been taking pictures because honestly, when I look in the mirror, I don’t see any difference, your mind is your biggest enemy sometimes!’

A side-by-side shot showed just how much weight Shaughna has lost – which has left her feeling better physically, and mentally.

In order to prove that the ‘now’ picture was genuine, she posted a short video of herself in front of her mirror at home, showing off her new figure.

‘And although being accused of editing your pictures when you actually haven’t is the biggest compliment ever, I haven’t edited the pic on the right. So I thought I’d include the actual Live Photo just for any doubters,’ she explained.

Shaunghna continued: ‘I’ve been trying for a while to get into a better place with my health, mental and physical, so I must admit I am feeling bloody proud of myself today.’

‘I’ve spoken openly about struggling with my body image since I was a little girl (breaks my heart to even say that), so to be told I was seriously overweight at a doctors appointment wasn’t great.’

She then finished the post by saying that her progress hasn’t been completely linear or easy: ‘This hasn’t been overnight, and I still have a way to go. The truth is, there have been weeks where I have found it so easy, and then there’s been months when I’ve seen no change.’

Adding that ‘today definitely feels like a win,’ she admitted that her credit card was taking it as a loss because of how many new pairs of jeans she now needs to buy.

Shaughna became a mum in April 2023 after the birth of her daughter Lucia, who weighed 8lbs and 8oz on her arrival – Shaughna said at the time: ‘‘My darling Lucia, I wish I had you sooner so I could love you longer.’

She entered the Love Island villa aged 25 – she entered the competition on the first day and lasted all the way to day 33.

During her time in the villa, Shaughna was coupled with Callum Jones for much of the duration. Eventually, he decided to pursue a romantic connection with Molly Smith after meeting her in Casa Amor.

Before he returned to the villa with Molly, she had worried her and Callum’s relationship was falling apart: ‘The past few days have definitely been an eye-opener, they’ve made me realise I probably moan at him way too much and I just miss having him around, so I do want him back, preferably on his own.’
