'My son knows I've paid for boobs like this': Ex-CBB star Nicola McLean's revelation leaves Piers Morgan shocked
Nicola shared, "My son knows for a fact that when you're nearing 40, as I am, unless you have paid for boobs like this, they won't look like this.
Piers Morgan was shocked by model Nicola McLean after she revealed it on his show that her 12-year-old son is aware of fake breasts. The 36-year-old model believed that it was the right thing to do so that he does not have unrealistic expectations about women.
While debating about whether 'Love Island' puts pressure on youngsters because of it's "beautiful" contestants on 'Good Morning Britain,' Nicola shared, "My son knows for a fact that when you're nearing 40, as I am, unless you have paid for boobs like this, they won't look like this. I have had this conversation with my son because I don't want him to think that these are real. People don't wake up with hair like mine or boobs like this. It just doesn't happen," she added.
Piers Morgan responded by saying, "You've had a conversation with your 12-year-old son about this? That's a bit early, isn't it?." However, Nicola argued that the ITV2 show is setting a rather unrealistic standard for young teenagers and children. She also shared that the reality TV stars are not being honest about the amount of plastic surgery that they have undergone.
Nicola continued, "I love 'Love Island.' I'm a big fan, but I just personally think that it's giving them the idea that you have to look a certain way in order to find love, to be beautiful and to get on. I know I sound hypocritical as I sit here with double G boobs, but I'm very honest about what I've had done. This is fake, this is fake." Many viewers called her a 'hypocrite' as she has admitted to having plastic surgery while she criticized 'Love Island.'
Many viewers and fans took to social media to call Nicola out. A fan even commented, "Hypocrite of the day award goes to the blonde women on #GMB. How someone can be so self-unaware is quite astounding," while another wrote on Twitter: "People should be able to look how they want. End of story [sic]."
"Leave it that way! It's banter! Make a new show where the regular looking would suffice, by then you can tally the ratings on which one works on primetime. Win-win if you ask me...," a fan wrote on Twitter.
Nicola faced off against Saffron Hart (Miss Great Britain 2017-18) in the debate. Miss Hart said that the show is not just about beauty as the fan favorites are not always the best looking. She explained that contestants like Jack and Dani are definitely favorites, but Jack is not muscular like the other men.
"Their personalities have won people over because they're relatable, they're respectful to themselves, they've been respectful to their families. That's what we like. We see them in the morning with no makeup on. I haven't had anything done, and I've still been able to find myself a boyfriend, I've still been successful, so you don't have to have these things and go on Love Island to find love," Saffron Hart further revealed.
Nicola also got into a heated debate while she appeared on 'This Morning Sofa,' on whether it is acceptable to step out in pajama's. The ex-Celebrity Big Brother star chose to defend her position of wearing pajamas to take her children to school and revealed that she would much rather have half and hour extra in bed than getting "glammed up" to take her kids to school.
Nicola said that appearances should not matter and got into a very heated discussion with etiquette expert William Hanson. Later on, she demanded to know whether her outfit on the show - a black, velour onesie - was considered appropriate.
"My kids are in their full uniform, always clean, presentable, everything they need. Why's anyone looking at me?" Nicola continued. However, William Hanson was not impressed or amused by Nicola's lack of interest and said that she needed to set a good example for her children by "trying" rather than just living life and making no efforts as this sort of attitude affects more than just the appearance of a person.
Nicola insisted that she does make it a point to brush her teeth regularly but she may not shower as much: "I do not care what you think I look like, I couldn't care less. I'm trying to teach my children not to care what people look like." Many fans and viewers agreed with Nicola and came to her defense on the issue.
