There’s set to be drama on Love Island tonight, with blonde bombshell Lucinda Strafford due to enter the villa alongside fellow newbie, Millie Court.

But Lucinda hasn’t always been a blonde bombshell, with her Instagram page showing how different the 21 year old looked when she was a brunette.

In a series of snaps from 2018 and 2019, the former air hostess can be seen sporting dark brown locks and looking worlds away from her Love Island promo pictures.

In a shot of herself wearing her flying uniform, Lucinda, who has hosted Usain Bolt, Nick Grimshaw and Danni Minogue on her flights, looks almost unrecognisable.

The Brighton-born star left her job working in the airline industry due to the coronavirus pandemic, and she is now the proud owner of an online fashion boutique.

She has also racked up an impressive following on Instagram with 43,000 followers and she often posts stylish photos of herself modelling various outfits from her company The Luxe Range.

Lucinda, who worked for British Airways, has been single since earlier this year after splitting from Brighton & Hove Albion player Aaron Connolly, also 21.

The pair had been dating for two years, but back in March a video emerged showing the Irish premiere league star had breached Covid lockdown rules after it was claimed he romped with a woman at a house.

He and Lucinda then split soon after.

Fans couldn’t help but comment on Twitter about how “fuming” the footballer will be that his ex has entered the villa.

“Aaron Connolly is going to lose his mind,” wrote one, while another added: “I don’t think Aaron Connolly enjoyed my Love Island joke in the pub last night”.

A third wrote: “Aaron Connolly is currently s******g himself. Go on Lucina! #BHAFC”.

Last month Aaron liked a cryptic tweet on Twitter after it was reported his ex could be heading to Majorca.

The tweet read: “don’t force nobody to appreciate you”.

Discussing why she's signed up for Love Island, Lucinda admitted: "I’m a relationship kind of girl. The timing is right and I want to have some fun."

Lucinda continued to say she "really fancies Brad," while adding: "Possibly Liam. But obviously I’m open to getting to know any of the other boys."

Discussing what she thinks of the other girls, Lucinda said: "Liberty’s a similar age to me, so I think I’ll probably get along with her, she seems funny.

"I like Kaz, she seems really bubbly. I can tell Faye can stand up for herself, but I also quite like that about her. So I don’t feel like we’ll rub against each other.

"There’s none that I think that I won’t get along with just yet. But I’ll need to be with them 24/7 to know if I will get along with them or not."
