Ferne McCann has been told by producers in the US that she needs to "tone down" her strong Essex accent.
Ferne McCann has been told to "tone down" her accent.
The 26-year-old reality TV star - who was born and bred in Essex - is desperate to carve out a film career in the US but has admitted producers have told her she needs to work on the way she speaks because it's too hard to understand.
Speaking on 'Loose Women' on Wednesday (24.08.16), she explained: "I have got a very strong accent and I'm very aware of that. Sometimes I tone it down.
"When I was in LA I was having meetings over there and they said I might need to tone it down a bit."
The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star recently had the bump on her nose shaved to give her hooter a smaller appearance but she's adamant she didn't undergo the operation to fit in with Hollywood and land more movie roles.
She said: "In terms of my nose, a lot of people have said did I get it done to conform for an LA appearance and the answer is no. I did it for me, I didn't do it to fit into a certain lifestyle."
However, although she didn't get the surgery done specifically for her career, her new nose has helped her excel in her presenting work as she now has bundles of confidence.
She said recently: "It's crazy because I feel I can be my total self now. When I had that unusual nose, I always felt a bit awkward and like I had to be a bit more glam to make it look acceptable or to make me feel more sexy. Now though, I feel like I can rock crazy hair and wear whatever I want."
