"You look amazing and so different from when you were on MAFS," one follower commented.

"Ooo you look a little like Angelina Jolie in this photo!" someone else added.

Melissa has previously revealed she's a fan of Botox, crediting fellow MAFS star Tamara Joy for inspiring her to get it done herself.

"Since the show, I’ve had Botox, but never any surgery," Melissa told Closer Magazine. But my friend Tamara has had amazing work done, and I want to see the guy she went to. I think I want a nose job and facelift, and maybe more.

"I think a lot of girls go overboard when they’re so young, but I’m older – I’m not in my teens or twenties. I’ve thought about it for a long time and done my research, and I think I’d be more confident with some work done."

She also revealed the negative messages she received on Instagram really had an impact on her, "I only joined Instagram just before the show filmed, and when it aired I got thousands of followers. 

"It’s great – but while you might get hundreds of nice comments, one negative one calling you ugly really lodges in your mind. I had – and still have – people criticising my face, my weight, my loudness. It does stick with you."
