Nicola McLean has admitted that she “loves” her boobs in a piece for The Sun, but revealed that surgeons had to remove her nipples to cater to their size.

The I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! star said that she “doesn’t think she would have been chosen” for the series back in 2008 if her assets weren’t the size that they were.

Despite the revelation, Nicola has also admitted that she thinks that she was “too young” when she had her first breast augmentation, aged just 22.

Since her first, Nicola has had a further two boob jobs from a “natural C cup” to an E, then up to a double G cup.

The 40-year-old reckons that her first boob job was as a result of the "culture of the early noughties", a time when the pressure to be perfect was rife and plastic surgery was booming.

Nicola’s career went down the glamour modelling path, which meant that she posed for “lots of lads’ mags,” which were a particularly popular phenomenon at the time.

Model Katie Price, who went under the pseudonym Jordan throughout the early 2000s, also had a breast augmentation which Nicola said garnered the star “a lot of attention”.

Nicola noted the early trend of plastic surgery and the changing tastes from the noughties to now and drew a comparison from a famous family.

She said in her column for The Sun: “[Big breasts] were fashionable, like big bums are now because of the Kardashians.”

The mother-of-two also touched upon the current trends within the beauty industry and noted how times have changed since her heyday.

The rise of social media and dating shows geared towards young people have become increasingly popular over the past decade, but the influence of their content on their audiences has become a growing concern.

Nicola commented on the cultural shift: “The problem with Instagram and shows like Love Island is [that they have] made these operations look really obtainable, but it’s not for the faint-hearted.”

She also highlighted her post-surgery struggles: “The recovery time after my most recent uplift was quite long. They even had to take my nipples off and reapply them for the surgery.”

Although McLean has been through a lot with her breasts, the reality star said that she “loves them” and “wouldn’t be where she is today without them”
