Lembit Opik claims he will soon resemble George Clooney after cosmetic surgery on his ‘wonky’ face
The ex-Liberal Democrat MP and Celebrity Big Brother contestant Lembit Opik has revealed he is to undergo cosmetic surgery on his ‘wonky’ face. The hope for Opik is that he will look like the Hollywood silver fox superstar George Clooney after his procedures are complete.
Lembit Opik, who is now 50, was unfortunate enough to suffer extensive facial injuries in a paragliding accident, 18 years ago, in 1998, whereby he fell some 80ft.
The results of the crash led to Opik breaking his back in 12 places, as well as his jaw, ribs, and sternum.
Opik, who has raised his image in the public eye with high-profile romances with one half of the Cheeky Girls and weather girl Sian Lloyd, will finally undergo a six-hour operation after patiently waiting almost half a decade for the procedure to happen.
He told the Sunday People: ‘Basically, they’re going to break my face and reconstruct it. For a while I’ll look like I’ve been in a major fist fight, then I’ve been told that when the bandages come off and I look in the mirror I’ll see a stranger for the rest of my life.
‘I’ve been looking at the bent-up version of my face for 17 years, and soon I’m going to have to get used to seeing a new person.
‘They haven’t shown me what I’ll look like. I’d like to think I’ll look like George Clooney!’
