Bobby Norris has opened up on not recognising himself after having so much filler in his face.
The TOWIE star admitted he has gone "too far" with various cosmetic treatments, and finally realised it when he looked in the mirror and didn't recognise the man looking back at him.
Bobby, 36, agreed with his fans that he needed to get his fillers dissolved after falling "down the rabbit hole," but explained it was really hard to see just how different he looked to others.
Speaking on FUBAR Radio's Access All Areas, Bobby shared all with host Stephen Leng.
“When I fell down the rabbit hole of having fillers, I certainly didn’t realise how I looked," the reality TV star began. "I was getting told on social media how I looked, and I’d see photographs.
"The first time you get something done its light and minimal and then you’ll go for a top up. So what becomes your “normal” changes as you have things done. Going back to when I started TOWIE… people were reaching out to the cast saying 'do you want this done? Come and have it done.'
"So I was like 'lovely!' I’ll go and have a bit of this and that.”
Bobby went on to say that while he never meant to be "extreme" in his cosmetic work and he tried to make sure he was only having treatments done "gradually", he lost control.
"It wasn’t until I had a bit of an epiphany," the star admitted. "In the early lockdown, ITV2 were churning out old-school TOWIE so I was looking at old-school photos. I saw myself joining the show at 24 and how I looked.
"Every couple of hours or days when I’d flip through to the show, I could see a big change was happening, but when you’re in that you don’t know it's happening.”
After realising just how much his appearance had changed since shooting to fame, Bobby explained he couldn't handle the criticism on social media anymore.
“I was getting called out on social media, I was getting called Kris Jenner and a human Ken doll," the star recalled. "That’s when I made the decision and thought in the New Year, I’m going to have my fillers taken out.”
While it was a "scary" change, Bobby noted that the most worrying prospect of getting the fillers taken out was that he would be horrified with how he really looked afterwards.
It had been 11 years since the TV favourite had first started having fillers in his face, and a lot can change in that time.
“Sometimes you aren’t aware of how you look until you see certain pictures or a paparazzi shot," the star added. "It’s when I sat back and looked at it through a third party’s eyes that I thought 'I’ve gone too far. I don’t look like me anymore.'
"I’m so glad I made that decision. It was probably a little bit later than I should have, I should have curbed it before."
Bobby's candid interview comes as fellow TOWIE star Lauren Goodger also shared her latest beauty update on Instagram.
The 36 year old mum-of-one posted a video of her getting a brand new lip filler treatment called the "butterfly effect," as she showed off the look with taped lips for her followers.
Lauren explained that she was talking strangely due to the tape and her lips were very "swollen," but she was excited to see the end results.
