She’s the undeniable breakout star of Channel Seven’s controversial social experiment Bride and Prejudice.
But viewers may have trouble recognising Codie Lea Lynch in old photos, with the young mother looking like a completely different person before her dramatic makeover.
The 21-year-old hairdresser was a fresh-faced teenage in photos taken back in 2016, when she was just 18 competing in a Mount Isa modelling competition.

In the images, the bubbly blonde has noticeably thinner lips, a flatter chest, and no tattoos.
The mother-of-one has since transformed her looks through both natural and artificial means.
Codie Lea has confessed to getting lip fillers and a breast augmentation, in addition to covering her physique in large tattoos.
She also sports rippling muscles and toned abs thanks to hours in the gym, and now competes in bodybuilding bikini contests.

Is it really you? The 21-year-old looked completely different before her extreme makeover
In a searingly honest Instagram post, the 21-year-old confirmed that she’s had lip fillers and a breast augmentation – but insisted that everything else is natural.
‘I am quite happy to talk about this as I am confident in my choices with my body and like to [share] education and self love [with] other people,’ she wrote.
‘The only thing I’ve touched on my face is my lips with some filler, everything else is natural and I intend to keep it this way.
‘As for the rest of my body, I had a breast augmentation to fill my body out to a more proportional shape for when I’m competing on stage with my bikini bodybuilding.’

Codie added: ‘These are my personal choices which I love… I am a strong believer in doing something that will give you more confidence and self love.’
The mother-of-one then urged women to ‘support our fellow ladies and help build each other up’ instead of tearing each other down.
‘If it does not harm you and if it doesn’t affect you, please don’t shame another woman for making a personal choice of her own,’ she concluded.
‘We don’t need to be each other’s worst enemies in this world full of nastiness.’
