Molly-Mae Hague has shared pictures of the "very, very large" birthmark she had on her face before deciding to have it removed.
The Love Island beauty, 21, discussed the red birthmark on her forehead, which she was born with.

She revealed all in a YouTube video, admitting that her old photos are "quite shocking".

The medical term for strawberry birthmarks is haemangioma – but she told fans they should embrace theirs if they aren't in a prominent area on their body.
Molly-Mae spoke to her subscribers while applying her make-up in the vlog.
She showed snaps of how she used to look and she maintains it was the right decision to go under the knife.

"I was born with a very, very large strawberry birthmark," she said.
"It was bright red, it was super large, it stuck out of my head quite far. It's quite shocking, I didn't realise.
"At around 12 or 13 I got it removed, before I started secondary school.
"My parents, well they didn't know if I'd be bullied for it but luckily I never was," she added.
"I just wasn't confident about it, as I got older the colour kind of faded."
But she said just because she took surgical steps, it doesn't mean others should.
"Own them, rock them," she spoke of her birthmark in the clip.
"The only reason I got mine removed was because it was in such a prominent area, right on my head."
The star revealed on Thursday that she was left "traumatised" after an agent told her she “wasn’t the right shape” to become a professional model.
She told her five million followers in an Instagram Q&A: “I have a funny story that happened to me when I was younger – it’s not funny at all actually, it still traumatises me to this day.
“Basically I was on a train and I got scouted – so embarrassing – this woman from this modelling agency, she scouted me and was like, ‘please can you come in tomorrow, we’ll have a meeting and we’ll potentially sign you’.
“So I was absolutely buzzing, like I always wanted to be a model when I was younger. But definitely not anymore."
