Coco Lodge sizzled in a black lace bra and matching suspenders as she posed for a new Valentine’s Day lingerie campaign on Monday. 

The former Love Island contestant, 28, looked sensational in the asymmetric strappy set complete with sultry belt from PrettyLittleThing. 

She styled her glossy brunette hair into soft waves and kept her makeup to a minimum opting for a subtle mascara and nude lipgloss. 

Coco made the most of golden hour and opened the door the her balcony to pose in the glowing sun. 

In a second photo, she leaned up against the window to flaunt her taut figure, and captioned the sultry snaps: ‘Valentines Day ready!’

Coco sparked controversy during her 12-day stay in the villa last summer after entering as a Casa Amor bombshell.

The graphic designer and former shot girl kissed Andrew LePage, 24, despite him being couple-up with Tasha Ghouri, 24, prompting Andrew to tell Tasha after the incident that he ‘licked her t*t, or whatever’.

And Coco alleges her appearance on the show and her treatment by producers led her to become one of the most trolled contestants of all time

She told The Sun: ‘People actually said it looked like my face was in a house fire and a car crash.

‘Others claimed I was transgender, called me Caitlyn Jenner and insisted I wasn’t born a woman.’

Coco said the production team only took two photos of her before she entered the villa which ‘didn’t capture her in the best light’.

She was surprised as she was expecting the production team would want the Islanders to look ‘fit’, especially as she was entering Casa Amor.

The reality TV personality added: ‘They did me dirty and when I saw the photo they used for the first time when I peeked into the producers’ room at the villa, I was like, “What the f**k, it’s horrendous. How dare they?”‘

Coco said the picture that was chosen for her led to her being hounded by trolls online who taunted her with cruel messages.

She insists she would not have received so much abuse if a better picture had been chosen.

Coco went on to explain how she was in talks to appear on Channel 4’s Married At First Sight when she was approached by ITV2’s Love Island scouts on Instagram.

She decided to go for Love Island, which she claims left MAFS bosses ‘fuming’, and even used the same audition tape for both shows.

The television personality said the MAFS casting person was ‘obsessed’ with the tape, saying it was the best they’d ever seen, so Coco decided to send the same one in, even though she felt like she ‘cheated’.

A spokesperson for the show told MailOnline: ‘We have always been transparent that we cast for potential Islanders in a variety of ways.’ 

However, when it came to entering the Love Island villa, Coco claims her moment was sabotaged when she wasn’t allowed to wear the swimwear she’d selected.

She said she had an orange costume in a cut that ‘made me look great’ but she was told to wear a bikini instead.

Coco said she was annoyed when she entered the villa to see someone else wearing a swimsuit rather than a bikini.

A show source told MailOnline: ‘Islanders can always wear what they want and the team would never let any islander go into the villa feeling uncomfortable. If anything, due to the show’s partnerships, they have lots of choices.’

Coco went on to claim the scenes that were shown of her and fellow islander Andrew, in which he kissed her during Casa Amor while away from his partner Tasha, did not tell the full story.

Honest: Coco was unable to keep it to herself that Andrew had told her he wanted to 'ruin her' as he kissed her breast in the pool after she entered the main villa last summer

She claims producers ‘did me wrong’, adding that she was ‘extremely emotional’ after Andrew tried to brush the situation off to Tasha, telling her: ‘I licked her t*t or whatever.’ 

A spokesperson for Love Island told MailOnline: ‘As we have said before, it is not possible to show everything that happens in the villa due to time constraints.

‘It is always our intention to produce a show that is a fair and accurate representation of life in the villa.’
