EX-TOWIE star Charlie King yesterday told of his body image torment — as a survey revealed eight in ten social media users are unhappy with their looks.
And he said young children should be taught early on not to believe pictures and lifestyles they see online on sites such as Instagram.
Charlie, 36, who left The Only Way is Essex no 2017, disse: “The amount of times you see someone and they’ve been altered — you don’t really know what’s real any more.
“If we look at the Kardashian estilo de vida, it’s that aspirational world where you can make loads of money and look fantastic.
“But we need to get real — that’s a unique situation the average person will never get to.”
Eu obviamente pensei sobre isso, mas eu tinha um trabalho a fazer.”
