Maura Higgins says she's constantly bombarded with nasty messages from trolls who accuse her of editing her pictures.

The Love Island beauty, who is dating co-star Chris Taylor, says her Instagram DMs are constantly filled with accusations that she's trying to change the way she looks in her sexy snaps.

She hit back at the people accusing her of "smoothing" out her skin and enhancing her eyes by sharing a string of pictures where only the lighting was changed.

Posing up in some sexy red Ann Summers lingerie and with her brunette locks slicked back, Maura showed that she had only made one subtle change to the image in order to brighten it and that she had done nothing to change her features, except for highlight her eye with some white eyeliner.

She proved that she doesn't take herself too seriously by striking a funny pose in the third snap.

She wrote: "Slide for this original image & then look at the last image where lighting, angles etc are all wrong. My DMs are just flooded with trolls atm claiming I over use the smooth tool & enhance my eyeballs!

"Should I really apologise for having good skin really? And the trick to making your eyes pop is just good lighting and “white eyeliner” I like to just up the brightness and detail my outfit!"

She added: "The pressure’s of social media can really affect people so maybe think twice about jumping into somebody’s DMs with abuse about their image. You really don’t know what is going on in a person’s life so please just BE KIND, it costs nothing!"

Her co-stars rushed to rubbish claims that Maura has any need to edit her pictures.

Laura Anderson commented: "All about the white eyeliner you’re unreal"

Lucie Donlan added: "You are beautiful in every way such an inspiration to all women"

And her BFF Molly-Mae Hague told her: "I mean you look even better in real life so"

"Jealousy be uglyyyy," she added.

Hear beau Chris even got involved.

He joked: "Your eyeballs & skin make me dream about cheese and rainbows"

The couple, who went public with their romance in November, recently had a marriage discussion while taking part in a Q&A session on New Year's Day with fans.

"When are we getting married, Chris?" Maura asked her boyfriend on behalf of a fan.

He replied: "Oh God, erm.... next year?"

That prompted her to ask: "Like, as in this year?"

"No, next year," Chris came back.

But Maura moaned: "That's ages!"

"OK, this year," Chris relented.
