Taking to her Instagram stories, Shaughna shared a screenshot of a conversation with a pal and showed her followers a picture of her ankles post surgery.

The Love Island beauty, who recently launched her new autumn In The Style collection was clearly ecstatic as she told her friend Emma about her size 12 jeans being too big for her.

"Omg Emma I could cry. Just tried on a pair of size 12 jeans. BUT they're too big," Shaughna wrote.

"ARE YOU READY FOR IT. They're baggy around the ankle. Yep that's extra material."

The Celebs Go Virtual Dating star added: "I'd like to thank my mom my dad the lord Jesus our saviour and my surgeon."

During a Q&A about her In The Style clothing collection, the former democratic services offer revealed all the details regarding her operation.

"I have had liposuction on my lower legs, so my calves, because I was recently diagnosed with lipoedema, once I'd come out of the villa," she admitted.

"I've kind of always had an insecurity about my legs, but there were so many questions about if I'd ever been diagnosed with lipoedema, and I didn't even know what it was.

"So after some research and going to some doctors, I was finally diagnosed and then had my surgery on Wednesday," Shaughna continued.

"And I'm recovering, I'm doing really well. I've got make-up on today, I've brushed my hair today and, yeah, I'm just really looking forward to… the process of it."
