Singer Christopher has previously admitted to spending £60,000 on cosmetic surgery. In two years, he apparently had three hair transplants, two nose jobs, an eyelid lift and teeth veneers. Speaking on This Morning in 2015, he revealed he had decided to go under the knife after being targeted by trolls on Twitter. "X Factor was great, but as the series was going on, I was getting really bad trolls," he shared. "I was called Mr Potato Head, that I was ugly, that I had a big nose, and it just affected me so much, and at the end of the final, I did have a breakdown." He concluded: "I feel so much better now. It has made me more confident and now I'm looking forward to the future."
