Love Island: Terry Walsh looks *completely* different in a throwback photo unearthed by his co-star Tom Powell...

Tom couldn't resist trying to leave Terry a little red-faced after coming across this gem of a photo of the reality star eight years ago.

He's nearly unrecognisable, right?

Tom tweeted the photo taken back in 2008 and in it, Terry is pictured without his slew of tattoos and his pristine locks.

Ribbing his co-star, Tom tweeted alongside the snap: "Terry is 2008 man.... Thank f**k you blossomed."

While Terry didn't respond to Tom directly, he did appear to hit back at a fan (whose tweet has now been deleted), telling them he was proud of the pictures that have surfaced online of him years back.

Taking it all in his stride, he said: "Amazing wat gym and some looking after can do. I'm proud of these pictures (sic)."

Seeing his response, Love Island's Javi Shephard credited Terry for his transformation. He said: "This is self belief and self improvement! I hope everyone can see you can always improve credit @terrywalsh88."

One fan tweeted Terry to say: "Good on you. Haters going to hate..." While another said: "Doesn't everyone cringe if they look back at pictures from 8 year ago! No biggie, just shows how much you've blossomed."

We hear ya!

Terry had starred on the latest series of Love Island and caused quite the stir, thanks to his controversial romances with Malin Andersson and Emma-Jane Woodhams.

Soon into his stay in the villa, Terry coupled up with Malin and the pair became the first couple to make their relationship on the show official. Everyone had been hooked by their romance, but it was short-lived after Malin was then voted out of the villa by the public.

Initially Terry had vowed to leave with her, but later decided to stay and continue his experience. He then shocked us viewers and his islanders by confessing he hadn't missed Malin "one bit" since her exit, and he had been planning to ditch her before she was dumped. Awkward.

Terry set his sights on Emma (Tom's ex) and even a sassy return from Malin to confront him for moving on so quickly didn't deter Tel from pursuing things with Emma.

They were voted out of the show just before Love Island's grand final, but it seems like Terry and Emma are still going strong!

Speaking to Reveal on their exit last week, Terry told us he thinks he and Emma still would have got together if Malin had still been in the villa. Emma, meanwhile, assured us she trusts Terry and isn't worried about him turning his attentions elsewhere, like he had done before.

She said: "Terry hasn't done anything to me. I'm not going to hold what he's done to another girl against our relationship. That's pointless. I don't have any reason not to trust Terry so I wouldn't worry."
