Love Island star Tyne-Lexy Clarson reveals she's put on two stone since leaving the villa as she admits it's been tough to maintain her size eight figure since 'the cameras went away'
She entered the 2017 Love Island villa as the Brummie bombshell.
But Tyne-Lexy Clarson, 21, has admitted her body confidence has plummeted since her stint on the hit ITV2 show a year ago, after putting on two stone in weight.
The beauty, who is now studying drama at university in Birmingham, has claimed she went from 'Love Island to Chub Island' since the cameras stopped rolling, as she vows to turn her life around with a diet and fitness overhaul.

Tyne-Lexy's 's weight has shot from 9st to 10st 11lbs, she has gone up two dress sizes from 8 to 12 and has put five inches on her waist over the past 12 months.
The TV beauty admits it's been difficult to maintain her weight after the pressure of looking good for TV eased, explaining: 'The contestants are under the huge pressure to look good on Love Island and it is tough to maintain that figure when the cameras go away.'
'I was in the best shape of my life last year on the show. You need to be because there is intense competition not just from the girls but also the boys to look good.'

'Anyone who is not in tip-top shape risks being dumped from the show when they are no longer coupled up. I have let myself go a bit over the last year.'
Tyne still looks incredible but has decided to sign up for a six-week body blitz with the health and wellbeing firm Forza Supplements, which involves reducing your calorie intake by using Shake It Slim meal replacements.
She plans to shed 25lbs (the weight she has put on in the last year) and try to lose five inches off her waist so she can get back the 'Love Island figure' she had last year.
She is completely overhauling her diet - ditching pizzas and fast food, and using Shake It Slim meal replacements as well as working out five times a week including plenty of tummy crunches.

Beauty contest: 'Anyone who is not in tip-top shape risks being dumped from the show when they are no longer coupled up,' points out Tyle of her time on Love Island
'It is not going to be easy, but I am determined to turn my life around,' the Love Island star admits.
'The pressure of social media can be excruciating and if you look at Love Island this year all the girls on the show are absolutely stunning and they are all size 6 or size 8 at most.'
'I am your average girl and I'm not ashamed of that, and I know I've put on a bit of weight in the year since being on the show. I've been eating too much of the wrong foods.
For this year's new Love Islanders, the beauty has a word of warning, saying: 'It will be interesting to see what all the contestants look like in a year's time because it is a real struggle to look THAT good when the cameras are not on you 24 hours a day.'
