‘[But this], I’m thinking of the younger generation. They look at picture perfect stuff on social media. But we have glam teams and filters.’

Maura explained: ‘We should also show the natural side, we all have blemishes and get the odd spot now and again.  

‘I hope to have a family and I fear for my kids seeing things like that on social media. You can change the shape of your nose and your face, how big your hair is. You can change everything.
