Love Island UK twins Jess and Eve Gale have turned up the heat on the Island with their trademark curves and pouts, but it turns out the duo weren’t always the blonde bombshells we know and love today.

An adorable school snap has surfaced showing the girls back in 2014, and without the Facebook tags, we would not recognise them at all.

The sisters, who hail from Cambridge, can be spotted in old Facebook pictures sporting matching red hair, and a far more natural look.

These days the 20-year-olds are VIP hostesses in London between their studies, favouring skin-tight, made-up glam, and high living, but as teens the duo sported a distinct girl next door look.

The snaps show the pair posing together, with minimal makeup and casual clothing completely changing their aesthetic.

Two years difference

Taken between 2014 and 2015, the girl are about 15 in the photos, and like most of us have changed considerably.

Photos of the pair just two years later shows a dramatic makeover, with new hair, plumper lips and a more different makeup approach.

Fans are loving the throwbacks of the girls, commenting their surprise at their looks just five years ago.

“They look way different on love island!” one observed.

“They look beautiful here - really striking... Hopefully, they’ll go back to red,” another shared.

Though some nasty comments surfaced, many were quick to defend the girls, arguing that any of us may look a little different at 15 years old.

“They just look like kids in the first one I don't know why people are shaming them for going through puberty??” one wondered.

The pair are already making waves in the villa, and blondes or redheads, we’re sure they’re only just getting started.
