Molly-Mae Hague had a wake-up call about her use of facial fillers when her sister told her she had taken it too far.
The Love Island star told her fans on her YouTube channel last year that she was planning to regain her natural appearance, and this journey has so far involved dissolving her lip fillers and having the composite bonding on her teeth removed.
Speaking about the decision on Steven Bartlett's The Diary of a CEO podcast, the 22-year-old admitted her older sister Zoe stepped in when the cosmetic procedures got out of control.
"It was actually only until my sister said to me, she was like, 'We need to sort this out.' It took her to tell me," she explained. "I was at a PA (public appearance) in a club and she texted me and said, 'I need to talk to you about the filler. It's too much now. It's enough. You need to stop.'"
Molly-Mae started getting fillers when she was 17 after seeing other girls having the aesthetic treatment on social media.
She carried on getting top-ups for a few years but eventually, trolls made her see how distorted her jawline had become by comparing her to Family Guy character Quagmire, who has a very pronounced jaw.
"Everyone used to call me Quagmire. I don't even know who Quagmire is. I think it's like a cartoon character. People used to say Quagmire, or I looked like an Xbox controller. My face was that warped," she stated.
The PrettyLittleThing creative director added that it was "terrifying" how normalised getting aesthetic procedures have become because she saw going to her filler appointments as the same as "going to the gym".
