Love Island’s Alex Bowen Is Feeling Insecure About His Body

The 25-year-old says he feels 'depressed' looking at his old Instagram photos...

As you’ve probably noticed, half the country has been in love with Alex Bowen since he first entered the Love Island villa.

The 25-year-old won over viewers (and now-girlfriend Olivia Buckland) with his cheeky smile, blond hair and, um, THAT incredible body.

So we were a little shocked when we found out that Alex isn’t feeling totally confident in his own skin right now.

The Birmingham lad took to Instagram over the weekend to share a throwback topless snap of himself, which perfectly showed off his rippling muscles, tanned torso and tattoo sleeve.

He’d captioned the image: ‘Depressed me looking at this ? lost a stone since I been out the villa…. Gonna get that weight back This got me motivated ??.’

Hmmm. Well, we think Alex is looking just as great now as he did back then – and fans definitely agree with us.

Comments on the shot include: ‘Life’s too short to worry about intercostal muscles. You look amazing as u are. Just enjoy life! X,’ and: ‘You’ve actually never looked better [sic].’

However, Alex is already working on getting his bulk back. He posed for a photo in the gym yesterday, cheekily lifting up his top to showcase his very impressive abs.

He wrote: ‘3 days back in the gym ?? shoot on Tuesday ??.’

Of course, followers were pretty appreciative. One wrote: ‘so so peng can’t even?,’ while another said: ‘Damn you’re beautiful.’


But despite the attention, we don’t think Alex will be moving on from fellow Islander Olivia, 22, anytime soon. Judging by his page, he’s seriously smitten.

And on Saturday, he revealed that he’s actually moving in with the Essex girl, telling his followers: ‘Moving to Essex next week ?? new chapter with @oliviadbuck ❤️.’

Aw. Congrats, guys!
