Loose Women's Andrea McLean Debuts New Braces After Having Dental Treatment To Support Teenage Son

Andrea McLean debuted a new set of braces during Thursday’s (4 February) ‘Loose Women’.


The TV presenter decided to have traditional train tracks fitted after her 14-year-old son Finlay was told he needed a set.

Andrea decided to support Fin, having avoided having them as a teen herself.

Explaining her decision on the ITV lunchtime chat show, she said: "I was supposed to have them when I was a teenager. I had acne, a perm, I was not going to add braces.

“My 14-year-old son just had them done, I was saying you’re so brave, and I thought you’re such a hypocrite because you never did it.

“So I did it! And we’re brace-face together!”

Andrea was all smiles on the panel, with Coleen Nolan and Keith Lemon

After the show had finished, she took to Twitter to share a picture of herself and Finlay with their matching gnashers.

“Thank you for all your kind comments about my braces today on @loosewomen. Fin and I are now Brace Faces together!” she wrote.

“Was nervous about the braces debut, but where better than on @loosewomen! #realwomen,” she added.

Andrea is by no means the first celebrity to have braces fitted as an adult.

One Direction star Niall Horan previously sported a pair while in the group, while Tom Cruise also fixed up his teeth with a set, as did Gwen Stefani.

‘Loose Women’ airs weekdays at 12.30pm on ITV.
