James showcased his new nose in early October, which intended to match his dramatic weight loss.
In his Instagram post, he wrote in the caption: ‘I’ve recently had rhinoplasty with the incredible @drfrati to reduce the size of my nose & nostrils.
‘The swellings going down & I couldn’t be happier with the results.’
He continued: ‘This is something that I’ve considered for a long time, especially after losing a lot of weight where my features stood out more.
‘It’s subtle, hasn’t changed my face & very natural (sic). It’s definitely another step in improving my overall confidence, self-esteem & I couldn’t be happier! X’

He dropped the pounds following his second spell in rehab, where he spent 10 weeks at The Cabin in Chiang Mai, Thailand in February.
Speaking to Sun Online, he admitted slimming down during a physically gruelling stay in South East Asia left him feeling self-conscious about his nose, which he felt looked ‘too big’ as a consequence of his remarkable weight loss.
He said: ‘I’ve always known I’ve had a big nose, but where I’ve been so up and down with my weight for so many years, my nose didn’t stand out as much, but now I’ve lost four stone my features show a lot more and I’ve got this large bump and nostrils that are even more prominent.’
‘I think if I have the bump removed and the nostrils made smaller it will make me feel a lot more confident and be another step into helping me better myself since leaving rehab – and I’m not gonna lie, better looking and more attractive.’
