A lot of people thought I got my nose done to conform to the LA appearance. I did it for me and not to fit into a certain lifestyle.

– Ferne McCann

Former TOWIE star Ferne McCann has denied rumours she had a nose job to give her acting career a lift-off.

The Essex girl recently went to Los Angeles to try and land an agent and pursue her acting dream.

Lovely Ferne also says she is proud of her strong accent and reveals why she thinks it is her reality TV past that is getting in the way of her plans.

They told me to tone my accent down when I was in America and I was like 'Really?'
