THE Only Way Is Essex star Junaid Ahmed has opened up about spending over £10,000 on surgery before the show.

The reality TV newcomer – who joined the cast of the ITV Be show this year – has been open about having a number of enhancements made to his face, including having his teeth done in Turkey.

Despite insisting he has no regrets, Junaid, 27, has now revealed that he favours a more "natural look" and has no plans for future surgery.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun Online at Whisky brand The Label Maker's launch, he explained he was "happy" with his current look.

"I've had my veneers done, and Botox and fillers in the past," the social media star explained. "I prefer the more natural look now.

"[I spent] about £10,000. I don’t think that’s much compared to what some people have done. A lot get much more done now."

Junaid revealed how he flew to Turkey to have his teeth done – a procedure he strongly encouraged others to "research" about before jumping in to have done.

"I went to Turkey about seven years ago to have my teeth done – it was the trend," Junaid went on.

"There’s so many horror stories now so you really have to double-check, always do your research, and I would never advocate for people to have stuff done unless they look into it properly."

Despite having surgery and cosmetic enhancements in the past, he concluded: "I’ve no regrets about mine. I absolutely love them.

"[There's nothing else planned] at the minute. I'm really content with my life and I'm confident in who I am as a person."

It comes after Junaid opened up on his romance with Declan Doyle after they headed home together after an event.

The star will appear on the hit show for the first time as it returns for season 30, and he opened up on his relationship status in an exclusive chat with The Sun earlier this month.

Hinting that there was unfinished business with Declan Doyle, Junaid said they’d gone home together after a recent event.

He added: “Listen, I’m seeing how things are going and Declan is a lovely, lovely boy. Didn’t realise leaving to go home together was such a big thing but let’s see what happens. We’ve just got to see what happens.”

Meanwhile Junaid has spoken about his secret flings with famous footballers – saying it’s sad they “can’t come out.”
