Love Island star, Mollie Salmon, has hit back at trolls who criticised her for getting a fox eye lift.
The popular cosmetic procedure involves inserting biodegradable threads under the skin to lift the outer corner of the upper eyelid and eyebrow, creating an elongated effect.
Other celebrities that are rumoured to have had fox eye lifts include Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner.
Mollie, 24, was a Casa Amor bombshell on last year's show but only lasted four days in the villa after failing to couple up with any of the boys.
The reality star and influencer jetted off to Turkey for the surgery, before sharing a post-op TikTok of herself looking bloodied and bruised.
The video, which has been viewed 4.7 million times, was captioned, "Fox eye surgery recovery, the healing process is a journey."
Many of Mollie's followers were horrified by the video.
One commented that they'd 'never consider bug eye surgery.'
"I thought u got jumped," wrote another.
Others simply asked: "Why?"
She later hit back at trolls in a video revealing the results of the eye lift, reading: "POV: Reading through all my comments saying I've ruined my face with fox eye surgery."
In the video, Mollie can be seen wearing a pair of black sunglasses and miming, "I had a little cry earlier, and I had a big cry last night, but I'm not crying now and I think for that, I'm doing so well."
She then takes off her sunglasses to reveal her new look, announcing: "The fox eye face reveal you’ve all been waiting for."
Commenters on the second video told the reality star she looked 'so beautiful' and 'unreal'.
Following the backlash she'd received on her previous post-op video, one commenter assured Mollie: "You look absolutely gorgeous!! don't let the jealous haters get you down."
It's not uncommon for Love Island contestants to get post-villa makeovers, undergoing various procedures and 'tweakments' to achieve looks that match their new celebrity status.
Season three hunk, Dom Lever — who is now married to fellow contestant, Jess Shears — had a hair transplant in 2019, revealing he'd always wanted a 'better hairline'.
And, Hannah Elizabeth, who was show's first ever runner-up, travelled to Turkey to undergo a nose job in late 2021.
Lucky for fans of the show, we won't have too long to wait to see the next crop of reality stars in the making with Love Island returning to ITV2 on Monday 5th June.
