Ferne McCann: New nose was for me not Hollywood

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.

However she insists the op was something that she wanted to do to make herself feel better.

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?'

Gloria Hunniford: I feel violated

It was easier for four strangers to go in and take my money. When I phone up my bank I have to answer about nine obscure questions.

– Gloria Hunniford

Gloria Hunniford today spoke exclusively about the bank scam which saw a fraudster steal £120,000 from her bank account.

A lady walked into Santander posing as the TV presenter- who ironically hosts a show called Rip Off Britain - and managed to add her grandson's name to the account.

She said: "I have lost all faith in banks. I feel violated. I have no trust for the banks."

Gloria, 76, continued: "It was easier for four strangers to go in and take my money than it is for me to get access to it."

Asked if the situation had been cleared up now, Gloria emotionally replied: "Not in my mind."
