Mum-Of-Two Nicola McLean Poses Nude And Confesses 'I Hate My Body'

Mum-of-two Nicola McLean poses nude and confesses 'I hate my body' Now magazine

In an astonishingly frank interview, glamour girl and mum-of-two Nicola McLean has revealed she hates her body - apart from the fake bits.

Nicola, was has spoken in the past about her battle with body dysmorphia, bulimia and anorexia, says in an interview with Now magazine that the only parts of her figure that she likes are the areas she has had work on - her breasts, teeth and hair.

The 31-year-old, who is married to Notts County footballer Tom Williams, told the mag that she hates her eyes, claiming 'they're too small and I have a squint' and that she is 'really ugly' without make-up.

"I have such bad body dysmorphia," she said. "I was bullied at school for being ugly and it stayed with me. I changed everything I hated about myself, like my teeth, boobs and hair, but I still don't love anything - only the fake bits."

Posing nude for the interview and bravely showing off her stretch-mark ravaged stomach, Nicola says that despite now being a healthy size eight, she looks at old pictures of herself after plummeting down to just 6st 4lbs and thinks she looked good.

"Two years ago, I was really ill. I was 6st 4lb and a size 6," she admitted. "But I look at the photos and part of me thinks: 'You did look really good.'"
Nicola, who has two children with Tom, Striker, two, and Rocky, six, and tragically suffered a miscarriage in May, says that she changed her ways because of her little ones.

After almost being sectioned because of her weight loss, and wearing clothes meant for eight-year-old children, Nicola heeded doctors' advice and gained a stone in a month through protein shakes.

"I still want to be small," she told the mag, "but I don't want to die."

The full interview appears in this week's Now magazine, out now
