Alicia Douvall has said she’ll have to have Botox for the rest of her life to stop her dribbling after a botched facelift.

The former glamour model has had hundreds of cosmetic procedures and said that during one of them a muscle in her face was cut.

The damage to the muscle means she dribbles so she now needs Botox to prevent it.

Douvall, 43, told The Sun: “They cut a major muscle in my face during a facelift. It means I have to have Botox once every six months for the rest of my life, otherwise I dribble.

"It looks like I’ve had a stroke.”

The former Celebrity Big Brother contestant – who decided to stop going under the knife when she had her youngest daughter in 2011 – revealed she had other health issues last year when one of her breasts became inflamed.

Douvall, who has implants, said she was terrified when her chest swelled up. She told The Sun she couldn't move and feared she was going to die.

The star went on to be diagnosed with sepsis. Then a scan showed she had a lump and a swollen lymph node.

While she got the all clear from cancer, Douvall said it was “the final wake-up call to realising the stupid mistakes I’ve made in my past”.

The mum-of-two now has regular check ups and has to decide whether to have the implants removed.
