Amy Childs: I won't let my child have plastic surgery

Updated: 

Amy Childs has admitted she has regrets about having plastic surgery now that she is about to become a mum.

The former The Only Way Is Essex star is expecting her first baby with boyfriend Bradley Wright, and is worried her two boob jobs will prevent her from breastfeeding.

Talking to hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby on ITV's This Morning, she said she had her breasts done when she was 18 and then again at 23.

She said: "And now what I have to deal with is a bad back, my boobs have dropped so much, the implant come away from me and I had to go to hospital and I remember sitting there with mum thinking, 'I'm so young, why am I going through this? Why have I done it to myself?' and I really wished that I listened to my mum and it was a massive mistake.

"And to any young girl now, I'd say, 'Really think about going through surgery, there are so many more alternatives out there nowadays. You can put a bra on that makes you go two sizes bigger, you haven't got to go under a knife'."

Amy, 26, said she has been told there might be an issue when it comes to trying to breastfeed her baby.

"I want to have that bond with the baby and I do want to breastfeed and I might not be able to," she said. "When I was 18 and 23, I didn't think about that."

Discussing other procedures, Amy admitted that she got "addicted" to surgery at one point.

She continued: "I remember thinking, 'What have you done?' [But] I haven't touched my lips for about a year, and I'm not planning... I haven't had Botox since I was 18."

The star, who is due in March next year, also insisted that she wouldn't let her child follow in her footsteps and go under the knife one day.

"My baby will not be allowed to go down that route. My daughter, if I have a daughter, she's not allowed surgery," she said.
