Plastic surgery's not for me -- Caroline

Caroline Morahan may be fronting a new plastic surgery show for TV3 -- but the Dublin beauty has no plans to go under the knife herself.

The Glasnevin native claims she feels comfortable in her own skin and is won't be resorting to cosmetic enhancement procedures anytime soon.

"For one thing, I'm only in my 30s so I definitely don't have any plans to go down that route right now, I'm happy with how I look," Caroline told the Herald.

"I don't have a problem with plastic surgery and I certainly think everyone should make their own minds up about it but personally I find variations in people attractive.

"As far as I'm concerned, it's that bump on the nose or that flat chest that make some women stand out and I don't think that attributes like that take away from someone's beauty, but rather enhance it."

And while many in the media industry were stunned to learn that Caroline had signed up to work on a TV3 production after so many years working with RTE, the chatty TV star claims it's too small an industry to be picky about who your employer is.

According to the aspiring actress: "I don't think it's a big deal at all to go from doing RTE stuff to doing something for TV3.

"At the end of the day Ireland is a very small country and there are only two TV stations to choose from, with limited work available for TV presenters.

"I've always done stuff for TV3, maybe not presenting work but I've done interviews on Xpose and at the TV Now Awards and that kind of thing.

"I had no idea they had me in mind to do the show. When they rang me and offered it to me if I was at home over Christmas, I jumped at the chance.


"It's a great series, a lot of research and work has gone into it over the past year, it didn't start just when I came on board," she added.

Caroline has since returned to her adopted home of LA, where she says she has plenty of acting and presenting projects on the go in the near future.

The former Off the Rails host is hoping to return home for another visit in three months, if her family cannot make it to the States to visit her.

According to Caroline: "I'm very close to my family. I'm like a homing pigeon who has to see them at least every few months.

"I'm hoping that they're going to make it over to me for a visit, but if not then I'll probably come home again for a trip.

"I'm not sure when I'll be home again or what my plans are when I get back, I'll just have to see what work is out there."

Caroline's new show The Cosmetic Surgery Show: What A Load of Botox, which she is to co-present alongside renowned Hollywood cosmetic surgeon, the star of Dr 90210, Dr Robert Rey, will hit the small screen next week.
