The star of reality show The Only Way is Essex opted to undergo the image-altering surgery after being bullied online over her appearance, following years of battling with insecurities.

The 26-year-old, who acts as showbiz correspondent on the programme, said she has been "hurt" by the trolls and that it is "easy" for people to criticise her nose.

She said: "I'm not getting it done because I want to get closer to being beautiful. It's not about that. It's just something that I don't like, and every day I look in the mirror, it knocks my confidence.

"There'll be a lot of people that understand why I'm doing it and a lot of people that won't."

She added: "I don't want to upset my mum and that's what makes me really emotional. But she really understands now."

Footage from her hospital stay ahead of the life-changing operation was aired before McCann appeared live to discuss the experience with the programme's hosts Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes.

She appeared on the show with some visible bruisng around her nose, despite wearing make-up, and gave an honest account of her surgery.

"It is subtle, I wanted it to be subtle I didn't want to change my whole face. That was one of my biggest fears," she explained.

Ruth said of her decision: "We've talked a lot about it haven't we. And I've always said 'you're so beautiful'. To me that is what made you striking and different."

Explaining her reasons for having the operation, Ferne admitted: "I'm not getting it done because I want to get closer to being beautiful. It's not about that.

"It's just something that I don't like, and every day I look in the mirror, it knocks my confidence..."

She also spoke to This Morning's in-house counsellor Penny Jordan and surgeon Professor James Frame about the surgery.

Realising how others might react, Ferne said: "There'll be a lot of people that understand why I'm doing it and a lot of people that won't."

She added: "I don't want to upset my mum and that's what makes me really emotional... but she really understands now."

While most fans were quick to praise the former I'm A Celeb contestant, others criticised her decision.

One quipped: "Another lesson for all those young girls, don't learn to love yourself just get your imperfections fixed with surgery."

While another added: "Respect Ferne McCann's choice but I think we should embrace our wonky noses not streamline them."
