LOVE Island star Grace Wardle looks unrecognisable after shunning fame and returning to her old job.
Grace, now 29, starred in the 2018 series of the ITV2 show and coupled up with Dr Alex George.
But unlike many of her Love Island co-stars, Grace hasn't pursued a life in the spotlight and instead returned to working as a hairdresser.
During her time in the villa stunning Grace showed off long wave blonde extensions.
These days she rocks a short bob and lives a quiet life with her boyfriend and their adorable pooch Ralph.
Before she entered the villa Grace said of her type: "I don’t think I can say. I can’t put my finger on it and usually can’t until I have met and been around someone.

Grace said: "I was a bit upset by the photos that they decided to put forward because I'm pretty sure there were nicer ones and they chose the worst ones.
"So when I came out and I saw the memes I thought 'OK, that's making me feel a bit s***'.
