"For those asking why I have my blue clay face mask on continuously throughout the show this is what my face looked like a week prior to entering the house hence why I always have makeup on and my skin is always covered," she explained, alongside a few photos of herself showing the reaction she had.


"This is the result of attempting to remove scarring I inflicted on myself trying to replicate an at-home beauty procedure I saw on a TikTok video 2 months before Big Brother... Who bloody else would manage to do such a thing."

Tilly then urged her followers not to attempt any DIY beauty hacks at home, showing the shocking results of what happened to her afterwards.

"Please please don’t try any 'DIY' or 'at home' beauty procedures I ended up in hospital with temporary loss of vision in my eye due to swelling and was very sick from the infection, not to mention my face was somewhat unrecognisable. Leave it to the professionals... Thanks [Big Brother] for being so super cute and supportive."

Tilly later edited the post to share more information, writing, "Edit: this is deep below surface level scaring and dark pigmentation whilst I’m fortunate enough to not have keloid scarring and the surface of my skin is smooth, the pigmentation is very dark and obvious."

In yet another edit, the reality star added, "Edit again: I literally shoved needles deep into my skin this is not a rash lol."
