Singer Alexandra Burke admits she battled with body issues when she was younger, but had refused to go under the knife to enhance her looks.
'I never used to be comfortable in my own skin... I have long feet and a short body. But I appreciate now that I'm smaller on the top,' dailystar.co.uk quoted her as saying.
'I would never have plastic surgery. Why ruin what you've been given? You don't need Botox and everything. Everyone is individual; there is no one out there the same. Why change that uniqueness about you?
'I did a photo shoot once where they air-brushed my thighs to make them look stick thin and I was like, 'Give me my thighs and my bum back because that's what I have!' I've just been signed to a model agency, and if me and my 5' 3' self can do that, anyone can,' she said.
