Love Island’s Sharon Gaffka worked at McDonalds before glam transformation

Dumped Love Island contestant Sharon Gaffka has been pictured working at McDonalds ahead of her glamorous transformation.

The star, who later entered into the civil service, was spotted sporting a lime green McDonalds uniform as she posed alongside a man – who is allegedly her former boyfriend – on social media.

A name-badge bearing the chain’s logo could also be seen with Sharon’s name on, and she wore her dark hair tied back in a ponytail as she opened her mouth in a wide grin for the camera.

The 25-year-old claimed prior to being dumped that she stood out in her home town of Didcot, close to Oxford.

And now a social media post has emerged of Sharon's 'roots', which began in the fast food industry.

In a post to the Facebook group Spotted: Wallingford, Benson, Cholsey, Crowmarsh and Brightwell, one user posted the picture with the caption: "Sharon from Love Island saying she’s only ever dated bankers or doctors.

"Don’t forget your roots. And the comment ‘I stand out in Didcot, I mean, look at me’. Oh please! Look at all the work you’ve had done to ‘stand out’."

But fans were quick to jump to Sharon’s support, with one writing: "Ah she’s okay just wants to put herself out there. Everyone has to start from the bottom – good luck to her."

Someone else commented: "You know Love Island isn’t real life right? It’s a show. Get a grip and stop being so salty."

"Oh dear – jealousy at its best!" a third fan chipped in.

Sharon has never spoken about her time working at McDonalds, and doesn’t mention it on her LinkedIn profile – though she does cite her experience working as a Team Leader at Co-Op in Oxfordshire from 2014 until 2015.

Sharon completely transformed her look from her McDonalds days, opting for a lighter brunette shade for her hair donning various sexy swimwear sets for her time in the villa.

Sharon said her Love Island experience was a "whirlwind", explaining in her exit interview: "It’s definitely been something exciting and it’s the first proper thing I’ve done for myself in my life.

"Even though I spent most of it on ‘Friend Island’ instead of Love Island, I wouldn’t change any of it."

She said the show took her out of her "comfort zone" and she made "amazing friends" along the way.

Love Island continues on Tuesday at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVHub.
