Laura’s former dark block fringe and glasses were a complete contrast to the middle parting and beach waves she rocks today.
The reality star went on to comment on the post herself saying: “I was never the pretty girl.”
“Hahaaaa I’m dying at this post,” Laura also wrote, making fun of her younger self.
Fans of the 31-year-old Scottish star fled to the post to share kind words about her snaps.
“My little geeky pal love this,” said a follower who claimed to be a friend of the star.
“These are some of the most quintessential Scottish childhood photos I’ve ever seen,” another follower highlighted alongside playful laughing and adoring love heart icons.
“Awww your glasses are sooo cute,” gushed one user, while another cooed: “These r precious .. awwh.” [sic]
Although Laura’s followers were captivated by her adorable childhood pictures, it wasn’t long ago that she received backlash over recent trip to Dubai.
After sharing a picture of herself basking in the sun, people labelled the star “selfish and distasteful”.
“How about stop being selfie when people are dying. Do the right thing & stay at home,” one enraged follower commented.
Laura, who was crowned the runner-up on the fourth season of Love Island, hit back at unimpressed individuals saying being an influencer is ‘really hard’.
Speaking to her 1.4 million followers in a video on her Instagram stories, Laura said: “I was thinking, you know the whole thing about everyone hating influencers, right?
“I do have to do a bit more of an insight of the reality of being an influencer because I feel a lot of young people think they might wanna do it but, maybe it’s not that great when you realise the reality of it,” she continued.
“I saw someone on my comments today being like: ‘Always being on holiday’ but when you’re working, no matter where you are, you’re not on holiday.”
“On holiday doesn’t just mean in the sun, it means you’re not working because people, who live in America and Australia are in the sun all the time so…”
“So maybe it would be a good idea to give an insight of what it’s really like so people don’t hate it as much and realise how hard it is,” she finished.
