Amy Childs says she ‘looks like a freak’ in old pictures as she shares regrets about cosmetic surgery

Amy Childs has not been shy about admitting to her mistakes when it comes to cosmetic surgery.

The original TOWIE star had a considerable amount of surgery when she was younger following her rise to fame including breast augmentation at just 18, lip fillers and even went so far as saying she was "addicted".

Now she is hoping that her own botched experiences will put off young teenage girls hoping to follow in her footsteps as part of a new BBC iPlayer series called 'I've Been There' which is available to watch now.

In the show Amy, 29, acknowledges that she felt part of the problem of young women seeking cosmetic procedures when she was on The Only Way is Essex.

"I honestly look back at pictures now and I look like a freak," she tells presenter and Radio 1 host Katie Thistleton.

"These 14 year old girls wanted to look up to me and I’m obviously part of the problem."

Amy opens up about how enhancing her breasts eventually ended in a week long hospital stay after her body rejected one of her implants, causing her excruciating pain.

She goes to visit two teenage fans of hers, Bailey and Christabel, who are considering cosmetic procedures to discuss her personal experience and reveals she regrets having her first procedures so young.

Without sugarcoating a thing she tells the shocked pair: "I’ve got so much advice to give to you, it will definitely put you off surgery just so you know. I regret everything I’ve had done, everything."

Mum-of-two Amy admitted in the past that she thought she had gone "overboard" with lip fillers and at one point left her needing corrective surgery.

"I had to have corrective surgery as one side was bigger than the other, more fool me for having my lips done in the first place," she said back in 2016.

Since then Amy, who is mum to daughter Polly, three, and son Rich, 18 months, has transformed herself.

Back in September 2019, the reality star posted a before-and-after photo of herself on her Instagram and revealed her impressive weight loss.

After opening up about "losing herself" following her split from ex Bradley Wright and putting on "baby weight", Amy got a new focus and shared how she had made the dramatic change.

“After having my second baby I just wanted to take my time getting back in shape. My body had been through a lot having two babies in 2 years and I didn’t want to give into the pressure to bounce back into my skinny jeans straight away.”

Amy continued in the post: “My youngest is now 1, I’ve still enjoyed the odd Prosecco here and there (you know I love it!) but I’ve working out at home for 30 minutes most days over the last 6 months, eating healthily and I’m so proud of myself for what I’ve achieved.

“I feel the best I’ve felt literally in years and I know that if I can do it anyone can…” [sic]
