Danielle Lloyd has revealed she underwent a facelift in secret – leaving her husband and eldest son "furious".

The 37-year-old former Celebrity Big Brother star has admitted she underwent eye-lift and jaw-tightening procedures in a bid to look younger, without telling her electrician husband Michael O’Neill until after the operation.

Lloyd told Closer magazine: "Michael just thought I was going out to get a beauty treatment, like getting my eyelashes done or something.

"He was furious – he lost it and just kept telling me, ‘You’re going to f*** your face up.’ He tells me I’m beautiful and to stop – and I do believe him, but I feel like it makes me feel better and more confident.

“Archie also shouted at me – he got upset and said, ‘Mum, what have you done to your face?’ Straight after the procedure, I was bruised and swollen for around 24 hours, so I did look scary.

“I sat him down and explained that I’d got it done to make me feel happier, and he understood. It went down the next day and it was OK, but it upset him.”

The ex-wife of footballer Jamie O’Hara has a four-year-old son Ronnie with Michael, as well as sons Archie, 11, Harry, 10, and George, eight, with O’Hara.

Lloyd confessed she began to feel insecure about her appearance after looking at younger models on Instagram and booked herself in for the surgery without telling her family.

She said: “Seeing all these gorgeous, young girls on Instagram also made me feel insecure and worry about my age – I turn 38 later this year, and the prospect of being 40 worries me.

"I want to look my best, and this procedure prevents things like jowls and lines, so I thought, ‘Prevention is better than cure!’ I know I’m a little bit obsessed, but it makes me feel better.”

The former Miss Great Britain – who admits to having undergone around 10 breast augmentations – had previously sworn off cosmetic surgery after one of her breast implants exploded on the operating table in 2012, leaving her fighting for her life.

In 2019 the model travelled to Turkey for breast surgery, a Brazilian butt lift and liposuction. And towards the end of 2020 she returned for yet more breast correction surgery and a nose job.

Lloyd said of her latest procedure: "I know I said I didn’t want more, but it wasn’t under anaesthetic or under the knife or anything. I love it and I’ve felt much better since having it done."

Lloyd and O'Neill married in April 2019.
