The singer was last on our screens when he appeared on Celebrity Botched Up Bodies last month.

Pete, who said he has “lost count” of the number of times he has gone under the knife, shared his story on the Channel 5 show.

He said: “The number of surgeries I’ve has is probably 300. I hope when I’m 80 and I get to heaven God doesn’t recognise me.”

But a number of fans of the star tweeted their hope that he would now stop having plastic surgery after everything he has been through.

One wrote: “Pete please stop now. #celebritybotchedupbodies” while another added: “Love #peteburns but what has he done to himself #botchedupbodies”.

Pete BurnsCan surgery really make Pete Burns happy?

He says his obsession with changing his looks began over 20 years ago when his hit You Spin Me Round (Like a Record) was storming up the charts.

Pete continued: “I realised I was going to be a visual entity and that I had to look good. I had a broken nose. In the punk days somebody head butted me in Liverpool and it went over to one side. When you’re young, self-conscious and standing in front of a camera and the photographers are whispering, ‘Can we turn his head to the left?’ you think, ‘I’ll do something about it’.”

Pete forked out £750 to get his nose fixed but when he woke up from surgery he knew something was terribly wrong.

He said: “I woke up covered in blood. There was so much blood it was unbelievable. There were tubes up my nose. He’d removed most of my nose and there was just two nostrils and a little bit of bone in the middle. I nearly fainted.”

Pete was due to appear on Top Of The Pops with his band and decided to put an eye patch on to hide the side of his nose that was bad.

He later booked in for reconstructive surgery – the first of many, many corrective treatments.

He admitted: “The amount of surgeries I’ve had are absolutely minimal compared to the reconstructive surgeries I’ve had. Probably 300.”
