Greg O’Shea has revealed that he is currently in hospital getting surgery on his nose.

The former Love Island winner and Olympian took to his Instagram Stories today to say that he’s getting work done on an “old injury” before reassuring fans that it’s “nothing too serious.”

Sharing some snaps to his social media earlier, Greg wrote: “Heading into hospital this morning to get surgery on an old injury. Getting a taxi by myself isn’t the most ideal situation though.

“You’re all very kind for sending messages thank you. Don’t worry, it’s nothing too serious.

“I’ll link this sexy cap and gown outfit later,” he joked as he showed off his hospital gear.

The 26-year-old also attached a link to one of his YouTube videos, where he explained what kind of surgery he was getting and why.

Two years ago, the Limerick native broke his nose and crushed his skull and got a nose job last month to help with nasal issues.

However, Greg admitted that he didn’t keep up with the aftercare post-operation and accidentally allowed his nose splint to get wet.

“Silly old Greg forgot to not get it wet and I was having showers, not even thinking about it,” he told his subscribers in the video.

“On the fourth day after surgery, I woke up and it was literally hanging off. I completely ruined it.

“I had my weekly review with the surgeon today and he was like, 'That was supposed to be on for ten days. I told you not to get it wet. I told you to leave it on.’

“So, you can probably see that, although I'm breathing so much better- and my nose feels better, it's still crooked.

“I'm probably going to have to get it re-done which isn’t ideal but at least I’m breathing better,” he added.
