CELEBRITY Big Brother star and former Human Ken Doll Jessica Alves appeared on This Morning today after coming out as a transgender woman and talked about her botched surgery.
Formerly known as Rodrigo, the TV star revealed during an interview on This Morning today a hidden gender identity battle that has fueled years of extreme surgery.
Jessica, 39, who lived as a man for 35 years, described her dozens of surgeries to transition ‘completely’ into a woman and said she is 95 per cent happy with how she looks after spending £1million on the operation Has.
Sporting blonde extensions and false lashes, she said: “After all the surgeries, I’m completely transitioned now.
“I changed my birth certificate and passport, my name is now Jessica Alves.
“In my previous life I was the human Ken doll and I lived by that nickname for ten years when in reality I had surgery because I knew I wanted to be a woman.
“This is the final performance, it was always about reaching that end goal.
“It’s been a very long journey, a process, it hasn’t been easy, but I couldn’t be happier.”
However, the Brazilian star opened up about how multiple surgeries on her nose didn’t achieve the look she’d always wanted after a surgeon used cartilage from a cadaver to build her nose.
She told This Morning’s Vernon Kay and Rochelle Humes: “If you look at my nose, it’s botched. I had 10 cosmetic surgeries on my nose and it was impossible to find a surgeon anywhere in the world to fix my nose, there are some out there…
“One used cartilage from a corpse to fix my nose and screwed it up. They say if they touch my nose now it will collapse and turn black and I don’t want that.”
Jessica lived as a man for 35 years and before her transformation she had a fake six pack and muscles in her arms.
The star, who said she now wants to be a mother and get married, has since had silicone breast implants, removed her Adam’s apple, shaved her jawline and modified her chin.
She added: “In 2018 whilst here in the UK on Celebrity Big Brother I became desperate and very anxious and I asked (producers) please send me wigs and dresses. I was already taking female hormones.”
