LOVE Island’s Rykard Jenkins has swapped fame for a VERY different career.
The 30-year-old reality star has ditched the spotlight to become a lip filler and hair transplant six years after the show.
The former TV star trained as an aesthetics practitioner and opened up his own clinic in October called the Rejuvenation Clinic in Kent.
Rykard has shared a series of photos and clips of him carrying out the procedures.
In one clip, he wrote: “Little work clip of our PRP Skin + Micro-needling rejuvenation therapy 💉✨ (Vampire facial as some know it).
“Using your bodies own platelet rich plasma to rejuvenate the skin on a cellular level combined with micro-needling. This treatment is the most advanced natural therapy for clear, smooth & tighter skin.”
He has also showed off the results posting snaps of clients before and after pictures.
The former TV star, who can now carry out Botox and dermal filler treatments, said he’s always been intrigued in learning about it and putting it into practice.

“I’ve always been interested in treatments ever since I’ve come out of Love Island,” he told OK! magazine.
“I started to learn that appearance is a big part of your confidence and the way people interact with you.
“In 2019 I studied to become an aesthetic practitioner.
“I started learning things about facial muscles, anatomy and then that moved on to doing facials and from there I started learning about things like microneedling, microblading, and I was eventually able to move on to advanced aesthetics, like Botox and dermal fillers.”
In the first episode the cast were asked to team up with a member of the opposite sex and Rykard initially teamed up with Malin Andersson.
But when Terry Walsh came in and stole Malin’s attentions he was forced to couple up with friend Olivia “just as mates”.
Shortly afterwards Rachel Fenton entered the villa and caught Rykard’s eye with the pair starting to speak and even sharing a romantic date.
But scandal hit the relationship when Rykard, finished up his date and got into bed with Olivia – all normal so far as coupled up pairs are supposed to share a bed – and had sneaky sex with her.
Viewers were flabbergasted as Rykard, who had never shown any interest in Olivia made love to her on the sly with his date Rachel in the next bed.
Rykard and Rachel went on to have a relationship in the house without him ever coming clean about the midnight tryst.
It was only when Rachel was booted off the show by the viewer’s vote that host Caroline Flack revealed the truth to a shocked and hurt Rachel.
The pair managed to overcome their differences and Rykard left the show in solidarity with his new girlfriend – but the pair sadly confirmed their split in 2017.
Rykard has since moved on with girlfriend Sian Owen, a DJ and radio presenter.
