Thirty years ago they were the heart-throbs of French television with their own primetime series on science fiction. Now Igor and Grichka Bogdanoff look more like the alien life forms they used to report on.
The twin brothers have had so much plastic surgery they are barely recognisable. Posing for pictures as the 150th anniversary party for luxury jeweller Chopard, the pair - now aged 60 - looked freakier than ever.

Heartthrobs: The twin brothers found fame with their science fiction series Temps X in the 1980s, before they became obsessed with cosmetic surgery
They are both understood to have a number of chin and cheek implants, as well as botox and fillers.
Their stretched faces echo the look of socialite Jocelyn Wildenstein, dubbed the 'bride of Wildenstein'.
The 63-year-old has earned the nickname her obsessive approach to surgery which has left her with incredibly strange features.
The Bogdanoff brothers were hugely popular on French television during the 1980s.
Their boyish good looks helped them secure a number of series on science and science fiction including the hugely popular Temps X.
But in the 1990s they had their first round of plastic surgery.
