Nipped and Tucked ... Now We Feel like a Woman; TWO BRITONS GO UNDER SURGEON'S KNIFE FOR A NEW LOOK ... ALL IN FRONT OF CAMERAS


Byline: VALENTINE LOW

IT IS LIKE the television series Nip/Tuck, only without the glamorous patients, the Florida sunshine or Joely Richardson. Instead there are supermarket shelf-stackers, estate agents - and an awful lot of surgical close-ups.

Here, in the first reality TV show to make Celebrity Big Brother look like a cerebral exercise in social observation, are the first subjects for the British version of the American cosmetic surgery show, Extreme Makeover.

They are among the men and women who won the chance to have their faces lifted, their breasts enlarged and all their other bits and bobs chopped, buffed, toned and polished until they were almost unrecognisable. Estate agent Charmaine Rose, 51, who felt she was cursed with a lumpy nose and non-existent cleavage, described her transformation after breast enlargement and extensive surgery as "a miracle".

She said: "I've gone from a skinny little boy figure to a real woman."

Susan Lambert, 41, who works at Tesco, agreed. She opted for a new nose, extensive dental work - and bigger breasts.

She said: "I have never really had breasts and I really feel they would make me feel more feminine."

. Extreme Makeover UK goes out on LIVINGtv on 10 February at 10pm.

FROM BOOB JOBS TO FACE LIFTS, THEY HAD THE LOT

Charmaine Rose Age: 51 Lives: Whitchurch, Hampshire Job: estate agent Height: 5ft 10in Weight: 10st Family: divorced, lives with her two daughters Surgery: breast enlargement, facelift, brow lift, upper and lower eyelid reduction, lips restyled, nose job.

She said: "I just feel so good. I've gone from a skinny little boy figure to a real woman.
