David Gest has said he wants people to think twice about unnecessary plastic surgery, saying: "What is perfect?"

The former Celebrity Big Brother housemate appeared on ITV's Loose Women today, where he spoke about going under the knife himself on the advice of pal Michael Jackson.

"It's the stupidest thing," he admitted.

"I had plastic surgery in 180. I did my eyes and I did my face. When I was very young Michael Jackson said to me you have it to make yourself look better. What an idiot I was. I'm telling people, be who you are. You don't need plastic surgery, it's the stupidest thing in the world."

David said he had the same plastic surgeon as Michael and had advised the late singer to stop having procedures on his nose. "I explained to him you are who you are, people love you for your talent, you're such an unbelievable performer and you never needed to do it.

"He thought the more you have done the better you look. People look at you different, but they don't. They look at what's in your soul. He just wanted to be perfect but what is perfect?"
