Chloe Sims' Ugly Betty past
Chloe Sims has revealed she looked like ''Ugly Betty'' throughout her teen years, and was bullied for her looks at school
Chloe Sims looked like "Ugly Betty" in her teens.
The 'Only Way Is Essex' star - who shot to fame during the second series of the ITV2 reality series alongside her cousin Joey Essex - admitted her dad used to ban her from wearing make-up when she was at school.
She explained: "My dad didn't let me wear make-up as a child. I was an Ugly Betty at school. I was bullied for my looks.
"I think that's why I wear so much make-up now."
The brunette bombshell - who attracted the attentions of 'TOWIE' father and son duo Mick and Kirk Norcross during her time on the show - revealed since discovering false eyelashes at the age of 16, she hasn't been out of the house without them.
Chloe added to Now magazine: "I've worn false eyelashes every day since I was 16. I even kept them on when I had my boob job op as I didn't want my boyfriend to see me without them.
"I've never been seen without make-up. Just to go shopping I take an hour putting on my foundation, bronzer, blusher, concealer, false eyelashes and lip gloss - and that's before doing my hair."
