MONTANA Brown has revealed that she wouldn’t have applied to previous Love Island seasons as she didn’t feel confident with her body.
The 22-year-old’s toned figure which she complimented in an underboob bikini thrilled audiences over the summer, but the size six star says she never would have gone on the show a year earlier when she was a size 10.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun Online, she said: “I wouldn’t say I was big, but it’s about being confident in yourself and the way you look and I wasn’t confident about the way I looked.
“I definitely wouldn’t have gone on Love Island, as in that environment if you do have an insecurity or are not fully confident in yourself it exacerbates it, so I don’t think I could have done it.
“And then there would have been no underboob bikini!”
Montana, who says it took a year for her to achieve her toned and athletic figure, says getting the definition and shedding some pounds has improved her self-esteem and given her the confidence to wear whatever she wants.
She said: “It just makes me not care about getting in a bikini and it does make a difference to my self-esteem as I can wear more.
“Before I toned up I would never wear shorts and crop top or anything, it would be straight up no, as I felt bulky around my stomach.

“It’s so nice to be able to buy what I want and not worry whether about whether or not it will suit me.”
The single star also revealed her recent encounter with Snoop Dogg’s model son Cordell Broadus.
She told The Sun Online: “When I went to LA I met Snoop Dogg’s son Cordell and he was just beautiful, it was like he was carved by angels.”
She added: “I don’t think anything’s gonna happen between us unfortunately but a girl can only wish.”
Montana’s wish may come true as it turns out Snoop Dogg’s father already thinks of her as a daughter.
“I met Snoop Dogg’s dad as well, Papa Snoop, and he was like, ‘You know, you’re like a daughter to me.’
“And I was like, ‘Yes I will be quite soon… hopefully.’”
