Rebecca Adlington Has Nose Job After Receiving Verbal Abuse

Retired Swimming star Rebecca Adlington has recently revealed that she underwent a procedure on her nose after much insecurity and a torrent of abuse on Twitter for her appearance. 

Following her stint on I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, the public witnessed the athlete's concerns about her prominent nose and the pressures of looks in the limelight as she wrongly compared herself to fellow contestant, airhead and beauty queen Amy Willerton.

The 25 year-old had previously talked about having surgery in an interview, saying:

"Every day I look in the mirror and go, ‘God, I’m not pretty. I’ve got a very big nose.” 

She went on to admit that after years of abusive comments, social media site Twitter is where she receives most name-calling: 

"People say ‘Oh God you look like a dolphin’, or ‘I didn’t realise they let whales into the Olympics, but at least you should be able to swim faster'.” 

Although Adlington talked about making sure the shape would be right for her face and that she would like to have it straightened, having the procedure done raises concerns as to whether internet abuse and pressures from the media could have influenced her for all the wrong reasons.
