Ireland AM presenter Elaine Crowley has opened up about the first time she tried to get Botox.

The 44-year-old admitted she wanted to get the cosmetic injections at the age of 30 after going through “a mid-life crisis.”

Speaking to Mario Rosenstock on the latest episode of his podcast, Elaine revealed that she tried to get Botox when she was 30 but was refused.

She explained: “I had a mid-life crisis at 30 - ‘I’m so old! I’ve got wrinkles! Fix me! I want Botox, I want injections, I want fillers. Please do everything.’

“I was lying down on her bed and she looked at me and she said: ‘Elaine, do you know what you can do now? You can get up out of that bed and come back to me in 10 years.

“‘I refuse to inject anything. You don’t need to get anything done and I’m not going to take your money, get out the door.’”

The TV personality then shared that she has since gotten Botox injections in her forehead and is happy to admit that she’s had work done.

“I got it in the forehead area. I’m 44 – if I don’t have wrinkles in my head, chances are [that I have Botox].

“I don’t put filters on my [Instagram]. I don’t want me to look any different. Yes, I’ve had Botox on my face. I’ve had it and I’m going to admit to it. There it is.

“I don’t have any wrinkles in my forehead because it’s not a filter, it’s because I got stuff injected in there. End of story. I’m not going to pretend I didn’t because then I’d be a big fat liar.”

Elaine added that women who aren’t transparent about their cosmetic procedures online are “causing a huge amount of damage” to young girls.

“The one thing that does annoy me, and it really pisses me off to a huge degree, is these gorgeous looking girls. They’re beautiful, they’re models, they’re TV presenters,” she said.

“They’re standing around pretending – flogging creams on Instagram saying, ‘This cream will make you look like this.’

“You’ve had a brow lift, you’ve had Botox, you’ve had fillers, you’ve had a boob job, you’ve had your skin laser resurfaced. Don’t lie about it.

“Own it, there’s nothing to be ashamed of... Don’t lie about it, what is the point?”
