Mike Tindall admits he had to have plastic surgery on his nose after being hit many times by rugby that he couldn’t breathe properly.
The former rugby player, 43, has broken his nose at least eight times during his 12-year sports career.
Appearing on the men’s special of Loose Women’s, Mike said he finally had corrective surgery to straighten his nose after years of sinus problems.
Presenter Vernon Kay told Mike: “Your nose job is on purpose, though, isn’t it? Literally, your nose is below your left eye when playing rugby. It’s not just because of the looks that you finished it? “
Mike laughed, replying, “No, I stopped breathing in my sleep so this needs to be done.”
He then added: “I also had teeth done but that’s because they were cut diagonally and looked like a bag of chips.”
Vernon considered, joking: “It was a great game, rugby.”
Vernon and Mike appear in an all-male takeover of Loose Women to mark Mental Health Awareness Week alongside Dancing serious team expert Johannes Radebe and radio DJ Roman Kemp .
Vernon hosted a special edition of the ITV morning show, called Loose Men, during the fourth all-male panel that will feature on the show.
The panel discussed the importance of men speaking out about their mental health to mark the week.
Vernon said of his return to Loose Men that he’s “really excited” to be back for another ITV special.
He added: “Men’s mental health is very important to me. I learned things from the council members last time that I didn’t know before.
“The reactions we all had last time were also amazing and highlighted the real need to discuss more about the topics we wanted to bring to the audience.”
The star Johannes said seriously: “I think Loose Men is a great concept. I’m glad we have a platform to sit as men and talk about issues affecting our lives and livelihoods.
“I have not worked with these gentlemen before, but I know their great work and I am delighted to finally meet them.
“We will continue to raise awareness about mental health as it remains harmful to our society.”
The Loose Women handed over the panel to an all-male lineup for the first time in 2020.
Last year’s season of Loose Men was hosted by Richard Madeley along with panel dancer Jordan Banjo, TV judge Robert Rinder and singer-actor Martin Kemp.
Loose Women’s editor, Sally Shelford, said: “It has never been more important to encourage men to talk openly and honestly about their mental health and we are proud that the Men Worthy group of men are. Our amazement never shies away from the big problems.”
She said to expect “some very honest discussions, heated debates and of course, lots of laughs along the way”.
Loose Women airs at 12:30 a.m. weekdays on ITV
