Katie Price Superfan Gets Surgery To Look Like His Idol
Nathan Thursfield admits 'major fascination' with the celeb...
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so Katie Price must be feeling pretty darn chuffed right now.
The glamour model-turned-reality TV star is the inspiration behind one young man's drastic plastic surgery makeover - with plans to spend £20k in a bid to look like his idol.
Nathan Thursfield, 20, from Staffordshire, has already had a nose job and now plans tooth veneers, a bum lift and liposuction to transform himself into the likeness of the 36-year-old celeb.
But despite concern from his family, Nathan has the support of his boyfriend and of Pricey herself.
The Mirror quoted him as saying: "I love Katie Price. I've been fascinated by her, and the buzz around her, since I first saw her on TV.
"I've always been self-conscious about the way I look and I think she's gorgeous. She has had so much success from her looks and I wanted that for myself.
"The results have been amazing so far. I feel much more confident in myself and much more outgoing and sociable."
He's already spent £6.5k on a nose job and now plans to spend a whole lot more on additional cosmetic work.
"All of my family and friends think I'm a bit crazy, but they all respect my decision to do what I want with my body," he said.
"And it means everything to have Katie's support as well. She also thinks I'm crazy, but she has been totally supportive about what I've done."
Price has made contact with him on Twitter.
"I'm having more surgery just to make it the same," he went on. "It only looks similar at the moment, but I want it to be exactly like hers.
"I'm also thinking of having a bum lift, which will hopefully be in September, but before that I'm replacing five of my front teeth with veneers.
"I'd probably consider having more work done further down the line. I know it sounds ridiculous, but I would love to have liposuction one day too."
When Celebrity Plastic Surgery Goes Bad
Nathan's BF Michael Gibbons is fully behind his unusual plans.
"If what he's doing is making him happy, then it makes me happy," the 29-year-old declared.
"He had always struggled with his confidence, but the surgery has given him a real boost.
"I will support him as much as I can. When he first told me, I didn't say no or try to convince him not to do it - I just went with the flow.
"I was cautious at first after hearing stories of how people can be affected if things go wrong, but when you are with someone, you'd rather see them happy than not."
A spokesperson at MYA, the cosmetic surgery behind Nathan’s procedure, said: “We have a high number of clients who attend consultations requesting celebrity looks as a basis for their surgery, it’s very common. Our most popular celebrities include the likes of Kim Kardashian, Michelle Keegan and Katie Price.
“Throughout the consultation process, our surgeons make recommendations based on their solid experience to ensure the client is going to be happy with the outcome, especially when based on specific celebrity looks. We’re really pleased that Nathan’s surgery has given him new found confidence and changed his life for the better.”
