Ulrika Jonsson has spoken about how her teen dream of having a “decent set of knockers” became a living nightmare as she grew older.
The 53-year-old TV presenter has admitted to growing to hate the “big and awkward” breasts she had wanted when she was bullied for being flat-chested when she was at school.
She said that when she was younger, she couldn’t wait to have a cleavage but in reality, it has become a living nightmare.
Ulrika has cited a breast reduction in 2009 as the moment that she started having a “healthy relationship” with her body and “enjoy” the chest she had.
Writing in The Sun, Ulrika revealed how she has struggled throughout her teenage years and beyond with her changing body and how all she ‘prayed for’ when she was younger wasn’t ideal when she was an adult.
She wrote: “I longed, prayed (seriously to the God of boobies in all earnestness) and pleaded for a decent pair of knockers.”
Ulrika said that her dreams were answered when she was 16 but she struggled with her development.
Ulrika continued: “Not only had my prayers been answered, but as I looked down on my two bazookas, I reasoned that I may actually have over-prayed.
“They felt big and awkward, gave me neck and back ache and, as I’ve joked many times before, would often enter the room two to three minutes before I did…’
At her biggest, Ulrika had a 36L chest and she said it brought her a lot of unwanted attention from men.
Ulrika, in turn, looked to 60s supermodel Twiggy for inspiration and this prompted to go under the knife and have a reduction.
Ulrika has said that despite the reduction, her chest size is still changing due to weight loss and the menopause and has vowed to embrace her flat chest.
This is a far cry from the beginning of the year when she took to Instagram to rant about her ever-changing breast size.
In 2019, she split from her third husband, Brian Monet, after 11 years of marriage and she started the new year saying the stress of that split had once again caused her to have issues with her chest.
