X Factor contestant from Leamington heads to America to appear on Botched

AN X FACTOR contestant from Leamington has headed across the Atlantic seeking surgery to make him look like a ‘human doll’ after constant bullying lowered his confidence.

Bradley Hunt is one half of music duo Bratavio who found fame after making it through to the final 12 of last year’s tv singing competition.

And the pair recently appeared on E! show Botched visiting two plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills.

Former Campion High School pupil Bradley asked doctors Paul Nassif and Terry Dubrow for bum implants to improve his confidence, which he said was low due to ‘constant bullying’.

The openly gay 24-year-old told the Observer: “We were on holiday in America and decided to drop into the Botched clinic due to the pressures of being on TV and getting a lot of trolls online insulting the way we look.

“It lowers our confidence when people call us disgusting, awful and vile and we even get death threats. It really makes you question what is wrong with yourself and makes you paranoid over time. You can say it doesn’t bother you but it does after a while. We usually fight back the trolls and give them as good as they get but that makes it worse.

“I was just enquiring because I always wanted to look like a human doll.”

Bradley’s friend Ottavio Columbro begged the doctors for a nose job after failed fillers some years ago.

But after being told the surgery would make his face swollen he quickly changed his mind.

Bradley added: “The doctors recommended we don’t have anything done and wouldn’t allow it, they just thought we were being stupid.”

Botched airs every Tuesday at 9pm on E! and repeats later in the year on ITVBe.
