Mike's incredible post comes a day after the former rugby player appeared on BBC's I'll Get This, where he spoke about plastic surgery when prompted by ex-Great British Bake Off star Sue Perkins, who asked: "Do we like or dislike cosmetic surgery?" Mike appeared embarrassed and put his head on the table as Johnny Vegas laughed and Fleur shouted, "No, what is this?" Mike then lifted his head and said: "I have had plastic surgery."

Former footballer John Barnes, who was also at the table, asked: "As a necessity, though?" "As a necessity," Mike confirmed. "On my nose." "It's a great nose," said Sue, before adding: "What did they put in there, like a chicken bone?" Mike answered: "My rib! My rib cartilage, into my nose." "Oh that's insane," the presenter responded. Mike is believed to have broken his nose at least eight times during his career before he retired in 2014 and had corrective surgery in 2018. Ouch!
