The star had previously divided fans after revealing his first set of veneers in 2013, shortly after finding fame as a contestant on The X Factor.

He told Notebook magazine: “I got my veneers done the day before I started hosting Big Brother’s Bit On The Side, my first presenting job.

“My mouth was swollen from the anaesthetic, they were bright white, brand new. That was the first night they all saw, and all people did was take the shit out of my teeth.

“So no one noticed I was a friggin’ presenter, and by the time they stopped talking about my teeth a few months later, I’d gotten better at my job.”

Controversial: The presenter's previous set of veneers didn't sit well with fans (pictured with his old set in 2014)
