Love Island star Afia Tonkmor has shared her story after her recent lip fillers went wrong.

The reality contestant took part in Love Island 2022, where she became the first to be kicked out of the villa.

Now Afia has turned to TikTok to show off the results of her latest fillers.

The star underwent lip and cheek filler injections six weeks ago, sharing her transformation with fans on the website – but later suffered an allergic reaction.

“I feel like I had to make this video,” she began, as she filmed herself in a room wearing a robe and a hairnet.

Although her makeup was perfectly done, the star's lips were swollen and out of shape, which she said was extremely painful.

'I knew… if you get fillers and you get sick, like the flu or a cold, your fillers can swell,' she explained – but 'I didn't know it could fill up that much.'

“The pain,” she continued.

'It's very rare, if I'm sick, that I start crying, [but] I spent half the night crying and when I look at myself I start crying more. And I'm drowning in painkillers, I have to take steroids today.

I hope they work within the hour. I don’t think I can deal with this again or all day,” she said, revealing that her lips had been like this for about 48 hours.

'I can't leave the house, I can't see anyone. I went to the pharmacy yesterday and showed them and they looked terrified.

In a caption alongside her video, Afia admitted she “wouldn't get lip fillers again today.”

Viewers were quick to comment on the video, with one asking if the employee had injected in the wrong place, but Afia was quick to assure them that she “did a great job” and simply suffered an allergic reaction.

One woman encouraged her to remove it, “and learn a lesson that God made you beautiful without fillers,” to which Afia agreed with a heart emoji.

Afia became the first victim of Love Island series eight after being left single by Gemma Owen's ex-boyfriend Jacques O'Neill, who decided to marry Paige Thorne.

'Obviously I'm going to miss everyone at Villa, but I'm going to keep trying to find love,' Afia said as she left.

'I'm sure Mr. Right is out there somewhere.'
