Love Island heartthrob Brad McClelland looks unrecognisable with bleached hair and glasses

epic transformation

WITH his bleached hair and glasses, it's hard to believe this is what Love Island heartthrob Brad McClelland used to look like.

The reality TV star shared an incredible throwback snap of his transformation before going into the villa.

The 26-year-old labourer from Northumberland caught the eye of most of the ladies in the villa with his boyish good looks.

But he wasn't always the tall, dark and handsome man we've seen on our TV screens.

Sharing it on his Instagram, Brad added a poll writing: "Do you think he would’ve done damage in Casa?"

Brad was booted out of the villa after falling for Islander Lucinda.

Within days she'd moved on with co-star Aaron - but Brad still insisted he'd be waiting at the airport with a bowl of her favourite cereal after her shock axing.

The builder, 26, said he'd been keen to pursue things with the fashion boutique owner, 21, despite her recoupling up with fellow Islander Aaron Francis, 24.

She's since confirmed they've gone their separate ways hours after leaving the villa.

Speaking on Head Under The Duvet, Love Island alumni Chris Taylor asked if he thought Lucinda had moved on too quickly.

Brad replied: "I've kept in touch with a few of the Islanders that have come out that were there after I left and that didn't seem to be the case.

"Maybe once she's out, I'll be waiting at the airport with a bowl of special K."
