British woman Claire Leeson revealed on This Morning that she has spent the equivalent of €22,000 on surgery enhancements to look like the reality tv star.

The 24-year-old woman spent the money of teeth whitening, a breast augmentation, hair extensions, makeup, tanning, and nails.

Not to mention the wardrobe to match.

She also admitted she wears “bum padding” i.e. pants with silicone inside them to get the same curves as her American counterpart.

The young woman said she is now deep in debt, and has creditors have sent her threatening letters:

“I work, but my job doesn’t pay enough,” she said. “I’ve used credit cards to pay for everything. I’m in major debt. I say that I’m going to pay them, but as soon as money comes in I just think about getting my Kimmy on.”

Leeson says she started watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians in 2009, and quickly became captivated by the Armenian-American star:

"I watched and realized I had the same amount of siblings and that we have the same kind of arguments and things going on," she said. "I thought she was so beautiful and I really wanted to be like her."

She states that she was bullied throughout her life, and feels “unstoppable, untouchable and strong” thanks to her new appearance.
