Reality TV beauty Lucy Mecklenburgh thinks she’s among a minority of stars who have never had cosmetic surgery.
The 27-year-old reality star – who first found fame on ‘The Only Way Is Essex’ – has revealed she has been offered various cosmetic procedures since her teenage years, but Lucy is proud she’s managed to resist the temptation.
“I wanted to look like the girls I saw in magazines and on social media who had these amazing high cheekbones, so I went to Harley Street. Looking back, the fact I didn’t tell anyone is really scary. There was no one to talk any sense into me.”
Lucy continues to be asked about the possibility of surgery – and no one believes her when she says that she’s never gone under the knife.
The brunette beauty told The Sun on Sunday newspaper:
“Every time I do a Q&A [on social media] people ask: ‘Where do you get your lips done? Where do you get your Botox?’ Every time I say I’ve had nothing done and they don’t believe me!
“I feel I’m in the minority now. When I say I don’t have anything, people almost go: ‘Oh, what? How come?’
“Is this what the world has become now? It’s so normalised – the lady who does your nails can now offer you Botox. How can that be right?
“When you used to feel a bit down about yourself or you were going through a break-up, your natural reaction was to get a blow-dry, have your nails done, buy a new dress and go on a night out with your friends.
“Now you go and get Botox and they suggest getting a few other things done while you’re there, and you come out with a 10-grand bill.”
