TV presenter Andrea Mclean has debuted a new set of fixed braces on ITV talk show Loose Women; the 46-year-old presented the chat show at the end of last week and was seen wearing the orthodontic appliance after confessing that she has always needed braces but was too embarrassed to get them before now.
Viewers were slightly confused to begin with and suggested that Andrea had perhaps had her lips done, but the presenter explained that she has just started orthodontic treatment after feeling too embarrassed to do so when she was a teenager. The mother-of-two explained that she suffered with acne as a teenager and had a perm as well, so she didn’t want to add braces into the mix.
She added that her 14-year-old son has also started treatment using braces and she decided that she would go for it as well; she said ‘I was saying you’re so brave and I though you’re such a hypocrite because you never did it. So I did it! And we’re brace-face together!’ Fans on social media sites were quick to lend their support to Andrea, as she joins other celebrities, such as Tom Cruise and Gwen Stefani, in getting orthodontic treatment.
