She has made a name for herself as James Lock’s perfectly preened girlfriend on TOWIE.
And Yazmin Oukhellou proved totally unrecognisable in new images obtained exclusively by MailOnline, showing the reality TV star with blonde hair prior to her rhinoplasty and two boob jobs.
The 26-year-old, who now models mocha locks, looks remarkably different in the snaps that show her posing with her pals before she rose to fame.
Then and now: Yazmin Oukhellou proved totally unrecognisable in her youth with blonde hair (left) – prior to her rhinoplasty and two boob jobs (pictured right in 2019)
In the snaps, Yazmin sports thin, light coloured brows which are worlds away from the super defined ones that frame her big brown eyes now.
In the throwback pictures, the health retreat owner styled her platinum locks in a poker straight style while wearing minimal make-up – compared to the heavy contouring, false lashes and bronzer she selects nowadays.
In another one of the unearthed images, the gym bunny is seen standing between her two pals.
The star looks demure in cream blazer and matching shorts, paired with a black top.

Yazmin has openly shared about going under the knife with her fans on social media.
Last year, the bombshell revealed that she had undergone a second boob job.
Taking to Instagram to show off the results, she shared a snap of herself posing seductively on a boat in a sexy black bikini, Yazmin admitted she was ‘so pleased’ with the results after her previous augmentation left her struggling to feel confident.

She wrote: ‘There’s been a lot of speculation recently in regards to my boobs and whether or not I’ve had them re-done. Well…… the answer is YES.
‘Following my first augmentation I was left with scarring that not only affected me physically but mentally as well and really knocked my confidence.’
Revealing that while she might appear confident on TOWIE, Yazmin insisted that she suffers with insecurities like anybody else, adding: ‘Many people think that just because you’re on TV, you are body confident but they are so wrong.’
But the star said her latest operation has left her feeling positive about the way she looks, gushing: ‘I finally feel body confident, have felt the best I ever have done on my recent holiday to Dubai and love my new boobs in bikinis.’

Candid: As well as her two breast augmentations, the reality star also admitted having rhinoplasty last year after breaking her nose
As well as her two breast augmentations, the TOWIE stunner also previously admitted to having a rhinoplasty last year after breaking her nose.
Once again choosing to announce her op on social media, she explained: ‘I had a previous broken nose and deviated septum so surgery was the only option for me.
‘I am so glad I did it as I was nervous at first but so happy that I can now breathe properly and that the small bump has gone. As I have stated before in previous posts I am NOT telling people to run out and have cosmetic surgery due to vanity.
‘I am saying that if you want to get surgery, have been thinking about it for a long time and like me I had no other option then people should feel comfortable to and feel they won’t be judged.’
Seemingly taking a swipe at some of her co-stars who have been silent about having cosmetic procedures, she continued: ‘This is the reason I have decided to be so open about it and not lie like others have.
‘It’s my body and my choice and people need to stop judging others choices, shaming body’s and appearances and just get on doing you.’
