We all love a glow up, and MAFS bride Coco Stedman is keeping the people more than happy with a sneak peek showing off the dramatic transformation she has undergone over the years.

The ultra-glamorous 30-year-old has won fans already in her two short weeks on Married at First Sight's 2021 season, with her trademark show-stopping looks and larger than life personality.

It turns out, however, that if you'd spotted her a decade ago or so, you wouldn't be able to pick the bride out of a line-up.


First, she wowed us with her hair transformation that saw her ditch her golden locks for a stunning brunette look, now she's showing us that before her blonde days she looked even more different.

In an instagram story shared on Monday evening, the reality star shared a snap taken in her teen years and 'transformed' might be an understatement.

In the photo, a baby-faced Coco shows off the same outrageous personality we love today, pulling a snarl with tiger claws for the camera.

She is decked out in yellow flannel cookie monster pyjamas, with black nails and a cropped ginger hairdo.

According to The Daily Mail, the pilates instructor forked out more than $10,000 on a boob job, Botox and lip filler between then and now, accounting for her dramatically different current look.

She's not the only star of the wildly popular, if controversial, program to turn heads with a serious glow up.

In fact, when the cast of former seasons returned for the highly-anticipated reunion special earlier this year, many couldn't recognise any of them despite just a few years passing between appearances.

Between a bit of nip and tuck here and there, some dramatic hair changes and a few weight loss transformations the returning cast looked less familiar than many fans anticipated.

Favourites and 'villains' from series past appearing include Cyrell Paule and Jessika Power, Ines Basic, Ryan Gallagher, Mike Gunner, Dean Wells, Nasser Sultan, Lizzie Sobinoff and Seb Guilhaus (who recently called it quits) and success stories Martha Kalifatidis and Michael Brunelli as well as new parents Jules and Cam.

In an explosive sneak peek on Thursday evening, A Current Affair grabbed some of the familiar faces for a teaser of what’s to come, but many fans were left puzzled at who exactly they were even looking at.
