Alexandra Cane: 'Love Island made me love my body again'

Alexandra Cane says "Love Island" made love her body again.

The 27-year-old star appeared on last year's series of the ITV2 dating show and was coupled up with Dr Alex George until he ditched her days before the final, but the make-up artist has praised the programme as a "positive" experience because it gave her back her body-confidence.

Speaking to The Daily Star newspaper, she said: ""Love Island" was really positive for me - it actually made me more confident in my own skin. I fell in love with the person I really am. That's better than finding love for a few months isn't it?

"Before the show I was so self-conscious about my body. I was bullied, fat shamed and body shamed at school - I was scared to go. I went for a consultation for a nose job at one point.

"Looking back it was ridiculous but at the time it was all-consuming. Now I realise it's not the be all and end all of what I am about. I've learned to be fearless. On that show you are exposed. Everyone has an opinion about you suddenly. You learn to be thick-skinned."

The brunette beauty also confessed that she doesn't allow any negativity into her life because she "trusts her own path".

She added: "When you arrive you need to remember who you are, what you want to achieve and your values in life. I learned to love myself more and find inner confidence as that's the key to being happy. You have to trust your own path.
