Love Island 2019’s Francesca Allen has slammed accusations from fans that she’s been editing her photos recently, insisting her body overhaul is the result of good, old fashioned hard work.

Like many of her fellow Islanders, Francesca is currently holidaying in Dubai while the rest of the UK is under the strictest lockdown restrictions since the pandemic began.

And after showing off a slimmer silhouette in a number of glam swimsuit pics, Francesca says some fans have messaged her to ask if she’s given herself a digital nip and tuck.

"I don't get people being nasty in my DMs, everyone's really kind and I'm so grateful for my following," she said.

"But I've had a couple of people messaging me about my weight and saying I edit it my photos. I'm like, ‘hun - I've actually lost nearly two stone, so I am going to look a bit different.’"

“I'm strong in myself and I have that strength in my body that I used to have like over two years ago.

"I just had lost love for training, I'd lost love myself."

Francesca appears to have so far escaped criticism for her luxury holiday, while many of her friends and co-stars from the Love Island bubble have come under fire for flaunting their trips online.

2018’s Laura Anderson has been particularly vocal about defending the glam getaways, earlier this week insisting she was in the UAE for 'work' and saying, “being an influencer is really hard”.
