Love Island‘s Afia Tonkmor has opened out about her recent lip filler disaster.
The reality star appeared on Love Island 2022, where she was the first to be evicted from the resort.
Afia has now resorted to TikTok to display the effects of her most recent fillers.
The actress had lip and cheek filler injections six weeks ago and shared her change with followers on the site, but she later developed an adverse reaction.
‘I feel like I had to make this video,’ she began, as she filmed herself in a room wearing a dressing gown and hair net.
While her makeup was flawless, the actress’s lips were swollen and out of shape, which she described as very painful.
‘I knew… if you get filler and you get sick, like a flu or a cold, your filler can swell up,’ she explained – but ‘I was not aware it could fill up to this extent.’
‘The pain,’ she went on.
‘It’s very rare if I’m sick I just start crying, [but] I spent half the night crying and when I look at myself I start crying more. And I’m drowning myself in painkillers, I have to take steroids today.
I’m hoping they can finish in an hour. ‘I don’t believe I can live with this again or for the rest of the day,’ she admitted, admitting her lips had been like this for around 48 hours.
‘I can’t go outside my house, I can’t see no one. I went to the pharmacy yesterday and showed them and they looked terrified.’
In a caption alongside her video, Afia admitted she ‘wouldn’t get lip filler again today.’
Viewers were eager to comment on the video, with one inquiring if the staff member had injected in the wrong spot, but Afia quickly assured them that she ‘did a fantastic job’ and had merely experienced an allergic reaction.
One individual pushed her to get it removed, saying, ‘and learn a lesson god made you gorgeous without filler,’ to which Afia replied with a heart emoji.
Afia became the first Love Island season eight casualty after Gemma Owen’s ex-boyfriend Jacques O’Neill opted to marry Paige Thorne, leaving her unmarried.
‘Obviously, I’m going to miss everyone in the Villa but I’m going to keep trying to find love,’ Afia said upon her exit.
‘I’m sure Mr Right is out there somewhere.’
