Love Island 2022 star shows off hair transformation and they look SO FIT

Seriously, why wasn't this their villa look?

by Ben Pulsford |

It's no secret that Love Islander stars are pretty fit. Like, that's their whole deal, isn't it?

They KNOW they're fit, too; which is why the vast majority of said Islanders have banished their Love Island promo pictures to the deepest, darkest depths of their Instagrams, never to see the light of day. Tbh, we feel like we look like a bad Love Island promo pic each and every day and we get by alright.

Where were we? Oh yeah, Islanders are FIT - but we have to say, this year's bunch really are the cream of the crop of Love Islands cluster of cuties. Apologies for the use of the word 'cream' there; especially while we're gushing over hot Islanders โ€“ oh Lord, and apologies for the word 'gushing', too ๐Ÿคท.

The boys especially have really done things to us this year; we've felt certain things that we can't fully blame on that heatwave thanks to them ๐Ÿ”ฅ. It's been a real pleasure stalking each and every one of their Instagrams over the last two months and calling it hard work.

Which brings us nicely on to Remi Lambert.

We'd like to personally thank our editor for letting us write this story about how Remi is switching up his lewk to make himself even fitter than he already does. What's the word for a glow-up's glow-up? Well, that.

Poor Remi's villa stint was short even for bombshell standards, entering the villa with Jay Younger on day 9 and exiting on day 12 after a brutal dumping; but in those four days, he made a significant impression on us ๐Ÿ˜‰.

"Time for Baby Remz to make a comeback"

Post-villa, Remi has decided to turn up the heat even higher (Good Lord) by reverting back to a "clean shaven look" for the last few weeks of summer โ€“ and DAMN. The bombshell shared a snap on his Instagram Stories showcasing the last time he was clean shaven and, well, let's just say our thoughts are far from clean.

Remi captioned the March 2022 snap, "Still going clean shaven๐Ÿคฃ time for Baby Remz to make a comeback." He'd previously asked his 63.8k followers to vote on whether he should go clean shaven or not โ€“ after showcasing longer hair, a light beard and a full goatee in the villa โ€“ and we're thrilled to report you all made the right choice. I mean we have eyes, he's clearly fit with or without a little extra hair, but we'd be lying if we said this snap didn't make us melt a bit.

We mean, come on, those cheek bones are like ski slopes...

Remi is a ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ rapper

Love Island bombshell Remi Lambert's time on the show was very short and sweet after being brutally dumped just days after arriving alongside Jay.

In fact Remi's life outside the villa caused more of a commotion as his rap career came to light, which led to hundreds of memes doing the rounds on Twitter.

Even though everyone had a bit of a laugh, it turns out that Remi, who also works as a model (duh) starred in UK rapper Aitch's music video for his 2021 hit Learning Curve, where he starred as a wedding guest.

Aitch had to be reminded of the moment he starred alongside Remi (who is also from Manchester), as he re shared someone alerting him of the moment on his Instagram story.

He wrote, "No f**king way ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Only just clocked that Remi was in this video."

How's that for a humble brag?

What happened with Remi Lambert and Jacques O'Neill?

We're not going to lie, Remi seemed to be one of this year's quieter Islanders (or bosses were more keen to include Ekin-Su CรผlcรผloฤŸlu's Davide/Jay love triangle), but he's now revealed that he actually clashed with co-star Jacques O'Neill and the former rugby player "ruined his time there".

Viewers will remember that Jacques clashed with Jay when he arrived in the villa after he joked that he was "too small to be a rugby player".

Remi said on Reality with Will Njobvu's YouTube series, "There was of lot stuff that wasn't aired โ€“ a lot of stuff going on. So basically, me and Jacques got into quite a lot of arguments and it just made my experience shit. It ruined it for me.

"People were saying: 'It's because he's got a rugby persona'. But you can't treat people like that."

He added, "He was just trying to get on to me."

Remi then claimed that Jacques mimicked his voice and revealed that he wasn't the only one who clashed with him, "It was so jarring but I was the only one to stick up for myself because he would always do that to people and I just like to stick it on him and say 'Shut up!'"

The model and rapper, also added that he thought his time was cruelly cut short and given the chance he would have loved to have stayed and "got to know Indiyah and Danica mostly."

While we continue to watch Love Island, here's everything else you need to know about Remi...

Remi hails from Manchester and is a whopping 6ft3, so if you live up that way, you've probably seen him towering over us mere mortals on the Manchester club scene.

Before entering the villa, Remi described himself as "single AF" and admitted that he wanted to follow in the footsteps of Love Island 2019 stars Molly Mae Hague and Tommy Fury.

Remi admitted that he "saw how strong they are together, I thought, โ€˜I want a love like that.โ€™"

Bless him.

But which of this year's girls is Remi's very own Molly Mae? Well, she'll have to be someone downright perfect (and on the tall side), as 6ft 3 Remi says, "Iโ€™m too picky. She needs to be 10/10 for everything. And Iโ€™m 6ft3โ€. Iโ€™d like a girl to be at least 5ft10โ€.

How old is Remi Lambert?

Remi is 22 years old, which is about 39 in Love Island years.

What does Remi Lambert do for a living?

Remi is a model. Plenty of Islanders have been on the modelling books before, but Remi has entered the villa a seriously successful one, already modelling for the likes of Charlotte Tilbury, Jacamo, FITFAM, Tessuti, Myprotein, GeorgeAtAsda and Chelsea FC. So prepare for some serious poolside posing from this one.

Where is Remi Lambert from?

Remi hails from Manchester, but looking at his socials he is one serious jet-setter.

Does Remi Lambert have Instagram?

Yes and some of his images can live rent free in our minds for the rest of our lives, or at least until next season. Follow him at remilambo.
