Love Island star shares dramatic pink hair transformation on Instagram

Love Island star Sharon Gaffka has unveiled a dramatic pink hair transformation.

In a post on Instagram, the reality star debuted her curly pink hair, writing in a caption: "Him: 'I think we should see other people' Me: " .

Her fellow Love Island alumni were quick to comment. Paige Turley, who won the first ever series of winter Love Island in 2020, commented: "Omg loooove the pink!! You look amaze!" While Abi Rawlings, who appeared on series 7 with Sharon, said: "I’m obsessed with you x."

The boys got in on the action too. Brett Staniland, who was also on series 7, quipped: "Me thinking these pics were just for me in the DM’s but OK."

Sharon was an original Islander on the 2021 summer series. She was dumped from the island after 19 days after failing to form a romantic connection with any of the boys.

Sharon previously spoke about her sexuality during her time in the villa in unaired scenes, and has expressed that she would be open to dating or exploring a relationship with a woman in the future.

Last year, she opened up about how she believes there should be more LGBTQ+ representation on the show.

On Pride month being in June, which is when summer Love Island traditionally starts, Sharon said: "Wouldn't it be even better if we combined the two things and the show prominently featured LGBTQ+ contestants? As someone who's previously opened up on the show about my bisexuality, I'd welcome this wholeheartedly.

"There is an ongoing conversation surrounding the lack of LGBTQ+ representation on Love Island and shows of a similar nature.

"The queer community has been fighting for representation on TV for decades. Yes, the industry has been taking strides in the right direction, but this doesn't mean that the queer community is getting fair opportunities.

"But I am sure I am speaking for a multitude of Love Island fans from all over the world when I say that representation from all areas of society is important," she said.

Love Island airs nightly on ITV2, and is available via catch up on ITVX and BritBox.
