We're glad she's learned to love herself.

Liberty Poole has opened up about how low her self-esteem was when she was a teenager.

Speaking in her Second Skin video series on Instagram, the Love Island star admit to wanting surgery to change her nose as a pre-teen.

"I wanted to get a nose job when I was like twelve years old. My face was still growing... I grew into it. Why did I feel the need to do that?

"Why did I feel as a young girl, that I was never good enough growing up?"

How did this affect Liberty?

Liberty admitted that her lack of self-confidence affected her romantic relationships as well. When her partner cheated on her, she would worry it was because of how she looked.

"[My low self-esteem] followed me into relationships as well with people... If someone didn't like me back, I'd be like 'but my personality is 10/10.' Why don't they like me? Is it something to do with how I look?

"Even when I got cheated on, I constantly compared myself to this girl looks-wise. I went through a whole year of it, saying to my mum, saying to my friends, – they must have been bored to death – 'do you think I'm prettier than her though?

"I was hyperfixating on me not being good enough when hun, I'm good enough! I'm more than good enough!"

Liberty said she's more confident now than she was before she went onto Love Island, and she's grateful to have a large following as that platform can help her to inspire others to love themselves.

She feels she went through a journey of choosing herself during Love Island and she now "keeps on choosing [herself]" since the show.

"Don't get me wrong, I'm not perfect.

"I'm still a normal human. I still have insecurities, but it's about accepting that and owning yourself and loving yourself, and trying to rise above it. We should be able to be confident about ourselves."
