BEAR Grylls Treasure Island star Elissa Corrigan spent £1,500 on beauty treatments before the show – to give her a make-UNDER.
The writer, who opened up about surgery on this week’s show, had a series of treatments to prepare her for six weeks on the island, including permanent make-up and Botox.

Elissa had £350-worth of Botox and a £100 Hydra facial with Real Housewives Of Cheshire star Martin Kinsella, and spent £495 on getting her eyebrows tattooed on by Claire Hobson, who also works with Michelle Keegan.
She also paid for two flotation tank sessions at Float Planet to “get her head in the game” – costing £80 in total.
The reality star, who once appeared on E4 show Desperate Scousewives, also bought a laser hair removal machine from Love My Skin for £299, and had her hair cut and coloured for £150.
Finally, she spent £60 on an air flow whitening treatment from The Dental Café and £95 on vitamins.

“I knew I was going to look awful, filthy and malnourished living on a deserted island, but if I could make sure the basic maintenance was done before I got there, then I still had a fighting chance of looking respectable on national TV,” she tells The Sun Online.
Elissa left viewers horrified as she brushed her teeth with a random toothbrush she found on the island in last Sunday’s show.
She also managed to find £5k – and decided to keep it for herself, rather than share it with the group.
But the writer made a huge error – failing to hide the treasure chest it had arrived in.

She also told the group about her previous cosmetic surgeries – including a boob job.
The show, renamed Treasure Island with Bear Grylls as the Islanders compete for a £100,000 prize, returned to our screens over the weekend.
The survival show will see the 12 Brits left to fend for themselves on the island for 35 days.
They also have to compete – or work together – to find the cash prize, which has been dropped onto the island. And if they go home early, they get nothing.
