The 26-year-old gets emotional as she opens up about going under the knife...
Ferne McCann revealed a serious makeover on This Morning today.
In an emotional conversation with hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford, the ex-TOWIE star, 26, debuted the results of her recent nose job.
She admitted that she chose to go under the knife due to a life-long insecurity, before adding that it was bullying from cruel internet trolls that ultimately led her to take action.
She said: ‘I just wanted something subtle. I didn’t want a big change. I was teased in school about my nose and I thought it was taking over my face.
‘From the front, it looks similar to how it did before so there hasn’t been much to get used to, but it is different from the side profile.’
We were shown a video of Ferne embarking on her surgery, in which she said: ‘I seem so confident and loud, well I am loud, but on the inside, it really fazed me.
‘The names started when I went to secondary school. Boys started calling me “goose” and it planted a seed. Later, Twitter trolls rubbed salt in the wound.
‘My nose is my insecurity and it’s the easiest thing for them to say. It hurts. I’m not getting it done because I want to get closer to being beautiful.

‘It’s not about that. It’s just something that I don’t like, and every day I look in the mirror, it knocks my confidence. There’ll be a lot of people that understand why I’m doing it and a lot of people that won’t.
‘I don’t want to upset my mum and that’s what makes me really emotional… but she really understands now.’
To prove this, Ruth and Eamonn spoke to Ferne’s mother Gill on the phone, who said that she ‘admired her daughter’s bravery’.
The programme also showed Ferne discussing the decision with This Morning‘s in-house counsellor Penny Jordan and surgeon Professor James Frame.
