Singer Clay Aiken has come clean about his cosmetic surgery makeover for the new season of US reality show Celebrity Apprentice.

The gay star made his nip and tuck confession during an appearance on Tuesday's Watch What Happens Live chat show.

"I had surgery on my jaw for a TMJ (Temporomandibular joint) disorder thing and I had them suck the fat out of my chin while they were in there," he revealed.

"I was like, 'You know what, while I'm already down (under anaesthesia), go ahead and take the vacuum in there and suck the fat out of my chin'."
