Penelope Burkitt, a make-up artist from Bristol, met the love of her life, Karl, at the clinic where she worked as a receptionist back in 2011. Karl had attended the clinic to undergo a hair transplant procedure and there was an instant attraction. After his treatment had finished Penelope added him on Facebook and invited him out on a date.
After dating for a year Karl asked Penelope to move in with him, however she said she would prefer to be married before they lived together, to which he agreed. This was when Penelope dropped the bombshell that she could not be married to him until she had undergone cosmetic surgery.
Speaking to the Bristol Post, Penelope admitted that she had always felt insecure and self-conscious about her face and has told her daughters in the past that, “they need to grow up and become successful because then you can buy mummy a facelift.” She went on to say that following her stipulations about the wedding, even though Karl was not happy about the surgery, a few days later he revealed that he would pay for the procedure. Penelope also has Botox every few months to keep her lines and wrinkles at bay. The couple are now happily married.
