Having spent the best part of a year saying that speculation she'd had her lips plumped were "insulting", Kylie Jenner has admitted that she has had surgical assistance.

Admitting on Keeping Up With The Kardashians that she'd had fillers injected into her mouth, the 17 year old spoke of the pressure of the media speculation.

Jenner has been repeatedly asked about her mouth, and prior to her confession said she "wasn't ready" to discuss it.

Her half-sister Khloe said: "Kylie decided to plump her lips and I don't think there is anything wrong with that.

"I think if you've done something though, it is right to cop up to it. If you avoid the question, you're gonna look like a liar."

She had previously claimed that her distinctive look was down to carefully applied lip liner.

Jenner's lips launched a thousand trips to A&E for teenagers copying her plump pout. An internet craze started in which people put their lips into a shot glass and sucked in order to create a swollen, painful mouth resembling Jenner's.

However, the "Kylie Jenner challenge" turned out to be dangerous, with some people suffering bruised lips and long-lasting damage.
