Celebrity Big Brother's Chantelle Houghton admitted spending an eye-watering £16,000 on cosmetic procedures in an interview on ITV's This Morning earlier today - and she got real honest about why she keeps choosing to go under the knife and needle.

Reality star Chantelle spoke candidly to This Morning hosts Ruth Langsford and Eamon Holmes about her constant use of lip fillers but reassured them that it's not her intention to go "crazy."

"I'm not about to go crazy and end up with my lips exploding or anything like that," Chantelle said, "but I love the look and I will keep having them topped up to keep that look."

The 33-year-old cleared up, "I just want to point out, in no way do I think I look anything like Angelina Jolie [but] I just want to have a fuller pout. I'm as natural as I've ever been and just want a youthful look."

When asked by Eamon if it's in fact true that she has spent nearly £16,000 on cosmetic procedures and operations, Chantelle nodded but revealed that she absolutely hates the experience.

"I have tears running down my face and you get that feeling in your stomach like you're going to be sick," Chantelle said.

The star who not long ago allowed cameras to follow her journey to get rid of her 32FF chest on Bodyshockers: Nips, Tucks and Tattoos - continued, "It's awful but I've sacrificed going through that to make myself feel more confident. I'm not doing this because I've lost my mind [...] it's just helping me feel a bit more confident."

Chantelle even revealed that it was her CBB experience that made her want to undergo surgery. She admitted that she felt as though she had to act like a celebrity after she was thrown in the house alongside the likes of Ordinary Boys singer Preston (who she later married and divorced), Pete Burns and Jodie Marsh.

"If I hadn't have gone on Big Brother I would never have had a boob job," Chantelle said, "and I wouldn't be having lip fillers either, but I'm not blaming that and I'm grateful for the opportunities that it gave me."

Even though Chantelle mentioned that she likes the way she looks now, she admitted that she felt a bit "stupid" after former glamour model Alicia Douvall appeared via video link to give her some advice.

Alicia told her to stop and work on herself and her hobbies instead of her appearance and warned that lip fillers could cause permanent nerve damage.

"I feel a bit stupid now," Chantelle said, "because what Alicia said is totally true. Thank you for what you've said, I appreciate it but I'm not going to go mad.

"I just want to feel good in myself," she finished.
