Calvin Harris is completely unrecognisable before new teeth and buff glow up – after getting engaged to Vick Hope

NEWLY engaged Calvin Harris is no stranger to having women swoon over him – including his fiancee Vick Hope.

But the famous DJ hasn't always been a red carpet hunk, having undergone a buff glow-up and had his teeth done.


The Sun exclusively revealed this week how Calvin, 38, had popped the question to girlfriend and radio DJ Vick, 32, this month.

The hunky Scotsman and his stunning fiancee were all smiles as they appeared at the Chelsea Flower Show, making their romance public.

However, Calvin hasn't always had muscles and a perfectly trimmed beard, as he looked very different when first topping the charts.

When he rose to fame back in 2007, the DJ was a spotty student with long brunette dyed hair, who was often bullied for his height.

While the star now has a new worth of what's thought to be more than £168million, he was once just a regular lad from Scotland.

Calvin, whose real name is Adam Wiles, once opened up about being "spotty" and "extra gangly" when he was in his teens.

The 6ft 5' star told The Sun that he was often bullied for his looks and height in school, meaning he often kept his head down.

"It was hard being the tallest person in class, especially when you are a teenager," he explained. "When you're a spotty awkward teenager, you don't want people to look at you.

Calvin Harris ENGAGED to Vick Hope after whirlwind ONE-MONTH romance

"It's a self-conscious thing. Everyone looks because you are gangly.

"It's only in the last five years that I have come to terms with the fact that I am a big tall b******."

Calvin hit the charts in 2007 with his first top ten UK single Acceptable in the 80s, which was quickly followed by The Girls.

Sporting an Emo-esque chop, the star had long hair and often appeared on stage in hoodies and baggy jeans.

Still holding onto his sweet puppy fat from his teens, Calvin blamed his touring lifestyle and terrible diet for his looks at the time.

"The last thing I want to do is down 2 bottles of Jack Daniel's a night, live on Greggs pasties and sleep on a stinking bus," he joked of his life.

He continued sporting his brunette mop-style haircut until 2009, when he to chop off his long locks in favour of a shorter, neater style.

By 2012, after releasing hit songs I'm Not Alone and Feel So Close, Calvin had moved to Los Angeles and totally switched up his style.

The star had his teeth done and started opting for his now signature sleek haircut, as well as a plainer, on-trend wardrobe.

That summer, Calvin revealed he'd switched up his diet, eating egg-whites to build muscle, and started going to the gym.

He returned to his natural blonde hair too, explaining: "It's just part of growing up. I prefer my more natural hair look."

However, it wasn't until 2014, that Calvin got really ripped by stepping his exercise routine up a level and stopping drinking.

It's after this point that he had most luck with the ladies, going on to date Aarika Wolf, then Rita Ora, Taylor Swift, Ellie Goulding.

A year later, in 2015, he wowed when he posed in briefs for an Emporio Armani underwear campaign – complete with six pack.

He told his followers on Instagram in the same year that he continues to exercise while on tour to stay in shape.

"Staying in a gym routine while on the road is tricky, but as long as you don't drink, eat well, sleep enough, you'll be good," he said.
