X Factor has seen hundreds of hopefuls vie for the top prize since it launched in 2004.
As well as ultimately securing a number one single, many former contestants have also gone on to overhaul their image by going under the knife. The latest star to keep this cosmetic surgery trend going is James Arthur.
James – who won the talent show in 2012 – revealed he recently had a nose job. The singer told fans that he was undergoing the op with a post to his followers on Twitter. He wrote: “I’m in hospital waiting to have my nose broke back into place.” James later revealed that he’d decided on the procedure after having “one too many scuffles as a teen”. In an interview with The Sun, he elaborated: “They are going to break it and put it back in place. It’s all my years of fighting – too much fighting as a young guy.” In the same interview, he also revealed that he’d had his teeth ‘done’ and would soon be getting dental veneers.
Of course, James is far from the first star to make changes to his appearance following his stint on X Factor. Former hopeful Chris Maloney had three hair transplants, two nose jobs and an eyebrow lift once he was booted off the show. In a televised interview, he revealed that he’d made the decision to have work done after being relentlessly taunted by viewers.
In 2015, Chris said: “I hated how big my nose was so I’ve had surgery twice on it – to make it smaller and change the way my profile looks. When the bandages first came off I looked in the mirror and had a complete panic attack because I was all bloody and bruised. Now I feel so much happier for it.”
