The Only Way Is Essex stars Lauren Pope and Kirk Norcross hope that their nose jobs will help them steal the show's limelight. The young couple both went under the knife in London's Highgate hospital earlier this month to have the same cosmetic operation on their beaks!
Now, according to Closer, the pair are hoping that the work will help make them the shows new hot couple, taking the limelight away from Mark Wright and Lauren Goodger.
A source revealed: "Kirk and Lauren have almost dropped off the radar now that TOWIE has finished until September - they need to start raising their profile again."
The insider continued: "They've seen how much Mark and Lauren are making from magazine deals - they don't see why they can't do the same and everyone knows they'd like to be the 'star couple'. They know they can earn more as a couple. This is part one of their plan."
However pals of the pair insisted that the nose jobs were done simply to help their self-confidence.
A friend told the magazine this week: "Lauren's always hated her nose. She says it's 'huge and humpy' - and in the last six months, as she's got thinner, she thought it started looking even more prominent.
"Although Lauren's nose wasn't too big, since being on TOWIE she's started to scrutinise every part of her body."
