Like many identical twins, sisters Jo and Kerry Burton, 34, have always done everything as a pair.
But they’ve taken it one step further than just dressing the same. When Jo had cosmetic surgery to have a curve in her nose straightened when she was 21, Kerry followed suit.
“It might sound barmy to have some cosmetic surgery just because your twin is having it,” says Kerry, “but we hate to look different, so we had to have the same cosmetic surgery together. We both had chickenpox together as children and we had the same hobbies so our identical cosmetic surgery has just followed on from that.”
Since their nose jobs, the twins have spent £60,000 on treatments from eye lifts and botox to tattoo eyeliner and hair extensions.
After giving birth to her daughter, Jade, 7, in 2004, the sisters paid £4,500 each for breast implants, taking them from a 34B to a 34DD.
All their operations have been carried out by the same doctors at the same time. “We went for breast implants on the same day,” says Kerry. “Once again the surgeon performed identical surgery, writing our initials in pen on our tummies so he didn’t muddle us up.”
The pair also have matching spray tans, manicures and pedicures and facials and haven’t ruled out further surgery in the future.
If you’re a mum of twins, do your twins want to be exactly the same or do they do their very best to be different?
