Love Island stars are unrecognisable in unearthed childhood snaps

This year’s crop of Love Island contestants have already become household names thanks to their antics in the Mallorcan villa.

However, the islanders were unrecognisable as adorable snaps from their childhood were unearthed on Sunday’s spin-off show Aftersun.

It comes as the villa was rocked amid the latest recoupling, which revealed major twists that will see one couple in danger of leaving.

During the show, host Caroline Flack, 39, revealed just how much the stars have blossomed since their younger years.

After revealing that the show asked friends and family of the contestants to send in the images, Caroline then showed four throwbacks snaps – and they didn’t disappoint.

Both Tommy Fury and Anna Vakili’s retro snaps were flashed up on screen, with the audience doing a collective ‘aah’ for both.

While Danny looks relatively the same, with his younger self sporting the same wide smile in a school photograph.

It comes as Sunday night’s recoupling saw some shocks as Tommy chose to couple up with Molly-Mae, despite previously claiming his head had done a’ 560 degree’ turn for grid girl Maura.

As a result, Maura was left without a man so both she and fellow singleton Anna will head on a date with the two new boys Tom Walker, 29, and Jordan Hames, 24 during Monday’s episode.

Anton meanwhile followed his heart, rather than his head, when he chose to couple up with new girl Elma.

Clearly upset, the Scottish hunk rushed to comfort his close friend Anna and kiss her on the cheek before he brought his new partner to the seating area.

After a rocky few days in the villa, besotted Joe still opted to pick Lucie as his summer soulmate.

The hunk set aside his jealousy over her blossoming friendship with Tommy when he admitted the surfer babe makes him the ‘happiest and luckiest dude in the world.’

However, the villa was thrown into chaos once again when it was revealed the couples must each vote for the most incompatible pair.

It will be whittled down to the two least compatible couples which puts both duos at risk of being dumped from the Mallorcan villa later in the week.
