‘My body is definitely not edited’: Love Island’s Shaughna Phillips claims she photoshopped her latest bikini snap and assures fans she keeps her no-editing promise
Shaughna Phillips set the record straight on Sunday by denying that she had her body photoshopped in the blink of an eye to her latest sun-kissed.
The Love Island beauty, 27, shared a jaw-dropping photo with her 1.5 million Instagram followers flaunting her figure in a lilac bikini with the caption ‘Hot girl summer is thirsty work’.
But shortly after, she shared a before-and-after version of the original photo in her story, saying she had not changed the appearance of her body.
Setting the record straight: The former Love Island star denied claims she edited her latest bikini pic on Sunday — assuring fans that she meant it when she said zero edits from now on.
A notable difference between the earlier and later versions was the use of a filter, but Shaughna also details another change she made.
‘Just a small message to the people saying that I have photoshopped my last picture. My body ain’t edited, I’m pretty sure spies looking for sly lines in the background will tell you [laughing emoji],’ she explained.
She continued to admit which part of the picture she had tweaked.
‘I’ve edited out the huge spot I inherited on the side of my face. I said a few weeks ago that from that moment on there would be zero editing of my body and I meant x’.
Explanation: The notable difference between the earlier and later versions was the use of a filter, but Shaughna elaborated on another change she made – the removal of a space.
The catalyst for Shaughna to explain herself may have been a comment from a follower who suggested her use of Photoshop.
‘We saw you on live TV after the sun, you don’t need photoshop pics. Ur beautiful in your own skin,’ he wrote.
Shaughna responded by calling it the ‘best compliment ever’ as the picture is ‘not 10000% photoshopped’.
Defending herself: The trigger for Shaughna to explain herself may have been a comment from a user who suggested her use of Photoshop
This isn’t the only Photoshop allegation the star has received, as last month, fans began to notice an unsightly building in the background of one of her photos.
He then accused the reality star of altering her pictures to incite Shaughna’s anger.
As a follower commented: ‘Photoshoppppppppppppppppppp’, Shaughna replied ‘Jesus Christ looking at your pictures you should give it a try’.
‘Looking at your pictures you should try it!’ Shaughna erupted last month after she was accused of ‘photoshopping’ photos of garish buildings
She did not respond to comments of a similar nature, with one comment: ‘Teaching young women that it’s okay not to feel happy in your own body is wrong with Photoshop and surgery. ‘Don’t you think?’
Another concerned fan wrote: ‘I hope one day you’re confident enough to upload a true picture where you haven’t manipulated your body. You should be proud of how you really look’.
Other comments on the snap read: ‘Great to see some unedited pics too…’ and ‘The Winky Lines’.
