Love Island’s Connor looks unrecognisable without his veneers in old throwback snaps after fans poke fun at his ‘blinding teeth’ on the show
He has sent fans – and his fellow Islanders – wild with his ‘blinding teeth’ on the new winter 2020 series.
And Love Island’s Connor Durman looks unrecognisable without his veneers in newly resurfaced old throwback snaps of the reality star.
The coffee bean salesman, 25, from Brighton, who got his teeth done in Thailand from a ‘random dentist’, has a gap-toothed smile in the photos taken when he was younger.

Beaming in a collection of snaps, Connor also sports a lip piercing as a silver stud can be spotted in one of the pictures and a voluminous quiff hairstyle.
In another photo, the coffee bean salesman has whitened his teeth prior to having veneers fitted in Thailand.
During his intro on Sunday’s opening episode, Connor said his teeth have ‘worked wonders’ for him and he gets a ‘lot of attention from girls’.

The coffee bean salesman boasted: ‘I do get a lot of attention from girls on nights out. I think mainly it’s the teeth.’
Explaining how and where he got the dental procedure, he added: ‘I went to Thailand, found someone on google, a random dentist, flew there and just got them done. Honestly, these teeth have worked wonders for me!’
It comes after Connor sent viewers wild as they poked fun at his blinding white veneers on the launch episode of Love Island‘s first-ever winter series on Sunday.
The coffee beans salesman entered the villa with confidence as he appeared to find his perfect match in Sophie Piper, but fans focused their attention on his teeth instead, many comparing him to Friends’ Ross Geller.
Hilarious memes and cheeky comments about the hunk’s dental work flooded Twitter, with even his new love interest Sophie, 21, caught mocking his bright gnashers.

Listing the qualities she finds attractive about Connor, Rochelle Humes’ younger sister enthused: ‘My man is a coffee bean salesman… he’s so cute. I like his tattoos, I like his vibe.’
The brunette beauty later pointed out his veneers as she giggled: ‘He’s obviously got the veneers in hasn’t he!’, with fellow contestant Leanne Amaning chiming in: ‘I’ve never seen teeth like it!’
Fans joined in on making fun of his blinding teeth as many fans claimed he bears a striking resemblance to Friends’ Ross, as well as Methadone Mick in Series Seven.
In the iconic Friends episode from 1999, hapless paleontologist Ross resorted to teeth bleaching in a bid to impress a date – but made the fatal error of leaving the solution on for too long.

Others added: ‘Connor’s teeth are too distracting, this is all I’m seeing #LoveIsland. [sic]
‘Connor, they didn’t have those Veneers in a size small? #LoveIsland’… ‘#LoveIsland connor is the reason I’m scared to get veneers’ [sic].
‘Mike [Boateng] needs to arrest whoever gave Connor those veneers, how can anyone sleep with the lights on #LoveIsland’ [sic].
They can’t stop laughing! Hilarious memes and cheeky comments about the hunk’s dental work flooded Twitter
Another viewer compared Connor to 2019 contestant Amy as they said: ‘Just when I survived staring at Amy’s veneers last year and now they’ve shoved Connor onto our screens #loveisland.’
Others continued: ‘VENEERS NEED TO GO CONNOR’S TEETH MAKE ME SQUIRM #LOVEISLAND.
‘Connor’s veneers are causing me to lose comfort in my own home. This must be illegal. #LoveIsland.’
‘Connor probably spent thousands on his veneers when I can pop down to poundland and get the same thing #LoveIsland #LoveIslandUK.’ [sic]

While it was love at first sight for the couple, it looks as though there could already be trouble in paradise for Connor and Sophie after he snapped at her following a joke she made about his past threesome experience.
The confession came about during a game of truth or lie between the Islanders ahead of the explosive arrival of twins Eve and Jess Gale.
Connor revealed that he once went home with a date and ended up having a threesome with her and her flatmate, leaving the medical PA gobsmacked.
And things got tense later on after fellow Islander Mike Boateng, who is partnered with Leanne Amaning, admitted he’d slept with less than 20 women, to which Sophie quipped: ‘You’ve got yourself a keeper, not one that has a threesome on a first date!’
Trend: A fan insisted Connor reminded them of 2019 contestant Amy Hart, who spent £13,000 on her veneers before her stint
Yet the joke didn’t go down well with Connor who snapped: ‘You hate me tonight, you’re hating me.’
To which a visibly shocked Sophie tried to amend the situation by stroking his arm and laughing it off with Connor shrugging her off and adding: ‘You’re digging me out already, you are!’
Viewers are set to see the first recoupling on Monday’s episode as blonde twins Eve and Jess Gale will decide who they’ll like to continue their Love Island journey with after making a late bombshell arrival.
Love Island continues on Monday at 9PM on ITV2.
