When she entered the Love Island villa fans speculated that they were secretly dating and Lucinda was only on the show for a PrettyLittleThing deal.

While they did reunite following her time on Love Island, they've since split, they don't follow each other on Instagram and we all know what means - they're practically enemies.

Lucinda Strafford's transformation

It truly is a rite of passage. New teeth are an absolute must when you've taken part in a reality show and shortly after she left the Love Island villa, Lucinda revealed her sparkling new smile.

The former Islander posted a TikTok documenting her day out with the caption "New teeth yay 💕💗" and her followers had mixed views on her nashers.

Taking her fans with her on the trip to London, Lucinda showed off her composite bonding with a big ol' Hollywood smile and, of course, the comments came flooding in.

Half were fans of the new teeth, offering compliments such as "Lush!!!🥰" and "They look so much better!! xx" while others are confused as to why Lucinda needed anything done in the first place.

One person wrote, "There was no reason to get them done 😂".

Someone else said, "Always the people with perfect teeth who get theirs done 😭".

Another added, "Why do they creep me out".

A fourth asked, "What’s the point of ruining your natural teeth, if they're perfectly fine?"

Lucinda then jumped in and told her fans what she had done, "They’re not ruined! They’re only composite so my natural teeth are absolutely fine underneath with no shaving 🥰💖".

Another of her followers was also confused by her transformation and declared "Your teeth were already naturally pretty", but Lucinda replied with an honest answer, "I didn’t like my smile before 🤍".

Fair enough, Lucinda. It's your teeth, babes.

Does Lucinda Strafford have Instagram?

Of course, it's practically a pre-requisite for being an Islander @lucindastrafford.
