Love Island 2016 star Malin Andersson
The 26-year-old former Love Island star got candid about the numerous free botox and filler treatments she was offered after appearing on the hit ITV2 show.
In an interview with Daily Star Online , Malin explained how she was surprised by how many cosmetic surgeries got in touch and how they retreated when she questioned their intentions.
She told the publication: “Just last week a cosmetic surgery company reached out and said ‘We can offer you Botox and filler, can you come in’?”
She added: “They constantly messaged again even though I hadn’t even opened the message and again.
“I then eventually replied and said: ‘What? Is there something wrong with me?’ and they replied and said, ‘Sorry’ and deleted the messages.”
Insisting that it is ‘sad’ that companies believe it is the way to promote their companies, Malin said: ” But, it’s people like that who are trying to promote their businesses and are going to people who have got a platform, think it’s the way forward, and you know, that’s sad.”
Malin was a regular on our screens during 2016’s Love Island season.
She was eventually booted from the villa halfway through the series, and has gone on to be a mental health advocate.
The star has faced several heartbreaking moments in her personal life, such as losing her mum and her new born daughter.
Malin’s daughter Consy was born via emergency caesarean on December 23 in 2018 after doctors discovered she had a heart defect – with the baby girl being born at 33 weeks.
She was still grieving the loss of her mum, also named Consy, who had died from cancer in November 2017.
The former Love Islander revealed that she plunged into financial difficulty after leaving the villa when work related to the show eventually dried up.
She then made a drastic career change and became a carer for her sick mum, leading to a new found fulfillment in her work.
The 26-year-old has had a tough start to the new decade after heading to A&E at the start of January following breathing difficulties.
* Love Island airs daily at 9pm on ITV2
