Before Love Island, the stunning Ekin-Su even had a different name.

While studying performing arts at the University of Central Lancashire, she was known as Susie Hayzel and friends have recounted how at the time she spoke with a heavy Essex accent.

She also underwent a dramatic makeover before heading to the Mallorcan villa this summer.

The former soap actress was seen with enlarged cheeks, tears and jaw line in a video from a clinic in Cheshire.

Ekin-Su, 27, underwent expensive procedures months before heading to Love Island, including facial filler treatments.

She previously revealed in her Instagram highlights section that she went to Dental Design in Antalya, Turkey, for her £4,000 veneers.

The reality TV star also underwent a breast lift in Istanbul, EIGHT months before heading to Mallorca as a villa bomb this summer.

Now The Sun can exclusively reveal that £1,200 worth of facial fillers were also part of Ekin-Su’s pre-villa preparations.

The photos show a dramatic before and after, revealing the social media star with visibly plump cheeks and small bags under her eyes.

Ekin-Su also opted to have putty lined along her jawline, giving her more definition, while visiting Dr. Rosh at KLNIK Wilmslow.

Each of the treatments is on offer from £400 per area, making its enhancements worth a minimum total of £1,200.
