A STUNNING influencer has shared that she was forced to change her passport photo after having a massive glow up – with viewers in disbelief that it’s even the same person.
Joanne Prophet is a stunning lifestyle influencer who regularly shares clips on her TikTok page @JoanneProphet, and recently disclosed the rather unexpected result of her stunning makeover.
Over the past 10 years, the Lancashire based beautician has undergone cosmetic tweaks and the like to help her achieve her dream appearance.
And in a recent video, she shared a hilarious story about how her new appearance was causing her disruption every time she travelled overseas.
The blonde bombshell began by sharing her new passport snaps, featuring her tanned skin, gorgeous tresses pushed back over her shoulders, full lips and fluttery eyelashes.
She then showed off her picture from a decade ago, in which she appeared near-unrecognisable with a bleached pixie cut, heavy eye make-up and much paler complexion.

Explaining the issue, the stunner said: “The reason why I’ve had to renew it is because I’ve been to Turkey a couple of times now…
“I got pulled into a room for about an hour and got interrogated by about six Turkish men.
“So obviously, that was a massive concern.”
As if that wasn’t annoying enough, Joanne then added: “And then when I flew back to Manchester, they had to keep looking at the picture.
“And they said, um, you need to get this rectified cause it looks nothing like you, and this is why you keep getting pulled.”
UK guidance insists that you have to have a new passport picture taken every 10 years when your document expires.
But if your appearance has changed significantly, you can sometimes require a counter-signatory to confirm your identity.
And it’s fair to say that Joanne’s appearance was pretty altered, with her clip racking up nearly 200k views and hundreds of shocked comments.
“You went from Kim Woodburn to supermodel,” one user joked, which Joanne seemingly found absolutely hilarious.
“There’s hope for us all,” another laughed alongside a praying hands emoji.
“Quite literally the glow up of the decade,” a third wrote.
