Georgia Harrison has apologised to her fans for "over-editing" her social media pictures in the past.

The Love Island star, 28, told her followers "I'm sorry" for "making my insecurities your insecurities".

She wrote: "I haven't been over-editing my photos for a long time now and although I learnt my lesson I never really took accountability for the fact that I [did] it."

The former reality TV contestant – who rose to fame on the 2017 series of Love Island – added: "So here it is... I'm sorry to you if I made my insecurities your insecurities.

"I'm sorry to myself for not loving my imperfections the way I encourage others [to]. And I'm sorry to society for once being part of the problem.
