She famously spent £1 million on plastic surgery, and now Celebrity Big Brother’s Alicia Douvall has revealed the real reason behind her obsession.
The 35-year-old has admitted that she first became insecure about her looks after her Dad would taunt her about her appearance.
She told The Sun: “He called me names and I was the one who he said was ugly and had no brains.
“Bodies were meant to be disgusting, we weren’t meant to show our bodies in any shape or form, so I didn’t feel I could wear skirts that were above the knee or anything low cut.
Alicia, born Sarah Howes, described how her Tory councillor father would make her feel worthless.
“My dad was actually a very intelligent man but he made me feel like I was just pathetic and nothing,” she added.
Alicia also admitted in the interview that after being expelled from Boarding school, her weight plummeted to just six stone.
Her downward spiral continued as she turned to drink and drugs, eventually developing epilepsy.
Following her stint in the Celebrity Big Brother house, however, Alicia is adamant that she’s been able to grow as person and is all the stronger for the experience.
She said: “I got strength from going in the house – it’s an amazing experience. I found my voice and my power. I had to stand up to bullies, and found friendships.”
Well at least someone has come out unscathed.
