The Only Way is Essex star Bobby Norris has revealed that he got his facial fillers dissolved after "going too far".
Last month, the reality star announced that he will be dissolving the fillers after coming to the conclusion that he had outgrown that look and was looking to opt for a more ‘natural’ aesthetic.
Norris was a part of the show from 2012 until his departure in 2021, and now in an interview on FUBAR Radio, the platform where he co-hosts his show Access All Areas with Stephen Leng, he has talked about the reason he got the fillers removed.
He said that he never intended to get some extreme with the fillers, but when he couldn’t recognise himself after living with them for so long, the decision was pretty straightforward from there.
"When I fell down the rabbit hole of having fillers, I certainly didn't realise how I looked. I was getting told on social media how I looked, and I'd see photographs."
"The first time you have something done its light [and] minimal and then you'll go for a top up. So what becomes your 'normal' changes as you have things done," he added.
"I was having things done gradually. I never meant to be extreme in any sense,” he said, until he says he had an epiphany during the COVID19 pandemic.
"I saw myself joining the show at 24 and how I looked. [...] Every couple of hours [or days] when I'd flip through [the show], I could see a change was happening, but when you're in that you don't know that's happening,” he said.
"I was getting called out on social media,” he added, saying that people were comparing him to a human Ken doll.
"[It's] a scary thing to do because when you're keeping [up with] fillers and having top ups, you're forgetting [that] underneath your fillers, your body is still 10 years older,” he said.
"It's when you sit back and look at it through a third party's eyes and that's when I kinda thought 'Gosh. I've gone too far. I don't look like me anymore',” he added.
