Mel Giedroyc has hit out at celebrities on TV for having plastic surgery and Botox
Mel Giedroyc has slammed TV stars who have plastic surgery.
The 52-year-old TV star has revealed she prefers to see celebrities with natural features, praising film star Dame Emma Thompson for resisting the temptation to have surgery or Botox.
She said: "Wrinkles and life experience is everything, it’s such a lovely breath of fresh air when you see a woman on screen that hasn’t had all the tightening, or whatever they do to their faces.
"It really is an actual relief to see that."
Mel spoke of her particular admiration for the award-winning actress.
She said on the 'Shift On Life After 40' podcast: "I love Emma Thompson for that reason – she says publicly that she hasn’t had anything done and it’s in her contract not to have her posters airbrushed – that’s a relief."
Meanwhile, Mel previously revealed that she's seen Sue Perkins naked "many times".
The TV presenter admitted people often think the pair are in a relationship, and while they do see a lot of each other, the best pals have never felt the urge to "seal the deal".
She said: "I love Sue with every atom of my being and I hope vice versa. She is literally my bestest friend and she is like family, but there has never, ever been an occasion where we have thought, 'So shall we seal the deal here?'"
The presenting duo co-hosted 'The Great British Bake Off' alongside Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry before the show switched to Channel 4.
And Sue previously admitted that their departure left them feeling "incredibly hurt".
She said: "When we were there, Paul was incredibly fun – and then stuff happened that made us incredibly sad and incredibly hurt.
"But he was always like family for years and years, and it's painful when those things end, especially in the way they did end."
