He has had his fair share of criticism after debuting his new set of blindingly white veneers on Channel 5 reality show Big Brother’s Bit On The Side, but now singer-turned-presenter Rylan Clark has hit back at his critics, claiming that ‘half of them haven’t even got a tooth in their heads.’
The new TV host spoke to the ladies on ITV show Loose Women and said that he had suffered ‘a lot of stick’ about his teeth in the past and was feeling more confident with his new veneers, especially since they have become so popular they now have their own Twitter page.
Rylan looked like a completely different person at the Specsavers’ Spectacle Wearer of the Year Awards this week and certainly turned heads on the carpet. Although the photographers were keen to get pictures of the over-the-top dental work, Clark defended the appearance of his teeth, saying ‘They are white but you know what… it’s something I wanted done. I was in a position to get them done. I like them and at the end of the day, the people that have been piping up about my teeth, half of them haven’t even got a tooth in their heads!’ He also mentioned the confidence boost the Twitter page has given him, saying ‘I know I’ve done well as my teeth have got their own Twitter page! Cheers for that, guys! I appreciate it.’
