Chantelle Houghton's body demons have plagued her since she was a little girl.

From her well documented battle with bulimia, to spending over £16,000 injecting her lips with fillers.

Fresh from winning Big Brother in 2006, Chantelle had breast enlargement surgery in 2007 to make her feel better about her body, taking her to a FF cup.

She later had them removed after giving birth to her daughter with Alex Reid, three-year-old daughter, Dolly.

And now she has decided to document her journey on Katie Piper's Bodyshockers and appeared on This Morning to talk about her body demons.

Vowing to never go under the knife for vanity again, despite having regular fillers in her lips, Chantelle admitted that she would have never even thought about a boob job if it wasn't for Big Brother.

“If I didn’t go on Big Brother I would never have had a boob job.”

Eamon Homles sympathised with Chantelle but questioned why she would put herself through so much pain just to look 'young'.

A source recently told Closer that Chantelle is considering therapy and liposucton in a bid to finally get rid of her demons.

They said: “Chantelle is a very normal mum – she doesn’t have nannies, personal trainers or a chef who can prepare her meals. She’s tried every diet going, but fad diets have only caused her to put on more weight.

“But she’s so low she's started thinking about other ways to get her bodyback and is considering having lipo on her stomach. She knows it’s a drastic option and friends have warned her it isn’t the answer.”
