"I honestly have never, ever had Botox. I first went on TV ten years ago… your face changes from being 18 to 28. No one looks the same."

Billie has also denied having surgery in the past, previously insisting, "We’ve never had cosmetic surgery. We’re not against it if other people want to have it, but as long as they are doing it for the right reasons.

"It’s whatever gives you confidence and makes you feel good."

But fans soon hit out online, with one writing, "No way. They don’t look like they did years ago." Another said, "I have Botox and can see they both do! Stop with the lying, we all know,” which was "liked" hundreds of times.

And surgeon Mark Ho-Asjoe says the sisters have undergone dramatic transformations.

He explains: "I believe the girls may have had Botox to the forehead. In my opinion, both could have also had PDO [Polydioxanone] threads – a non-surgical treatment where threads are inserted underneath the skin to stimulate skin tightening."

"Sam’s face now appears more angled, which would suggest to me that she’s had filler in her cheekbones to define the mid-section of her face.

"Of course, other things that can play a part in such transformations are weight loss and ageing. Billie’s face has definitely become more defined from weight loss and both girls’ faces look less rounded due to getting older.

"In my opinion, I think the changes are a combination of growing older, losing weight and, possibly some cosmetic surgery tweaks."

Closer’s psychological therapist, Emma Kenny, says, "The industry is based on how you look and how youthful you appear.

"Reality stars are constantly trying to sustain this new level of beauty that’s been created so they stay relevant and keep getting work.

"There does seem to be a trend for reality star clones, with everyone seeking out identical looks, from the same killer brows and eyelashes, to hair extensions and glossy lips."

She added, "A lot of them have a huge presence on social media and get attention from selfies. But being this obsessed with looks means they become aware of every tiny wrinkle and blemish and start to crave the perfection they normally achieve with a filter."
