Danniella Westbrook showed off the results of her latest nose job in a new photo on Instagram on Wednesday.

The former EastEnders actress, 48, who previously revealed she will undergo facial reconstruction surgery on the NHS, shared a photo of herself enjoying an impromptu dinner with friends.

In the heavily filtered snap, she wore a blue and pink patterned blouse and wore her blonde hair down as she dined at the Old Compton Brasserie in London.

It comes after what was revealed that Danniella underwent facial reconstruction surgery on the NHS after private plastic surgeons said it would cost £500,000.

The star needs five surgeries to fix her ‘collapsing’ face due to a previous cocaine addiction and osteoporosis.

But she insists she needs the surgery to “survive” and that it’s not for “vanity” but purely for health reasons after her septum collapsed due to a drug overdose in 2002.

She told The Sun: “I’ve been trying to get someone to do it for the last seven years but they’ve said no in case it fails and they get knocked off.

“Plastic surgeons wanted £500,000 to change my face, so I thought I was never going to do it. It was only because I went into intensive care before Christmas.

“I couldn’t breathe because I had a cold. There was a fluid build up and after I fell asleep I couldn’t wake up properly and ended up in the ICU.

“I was sent to Aintree Hospital in Liverpool and that was only because I was put in front of the right doctors, otherwise I would still be waiting to find someone now. “Now they do it for me on the NHS.

Last month, Danniella stepped out with a bandage over her nose, leading fans to believe she had already had a nose job.

But the bandages came after she had her skin removed for a biopsy to see if she was fit for the upcoming procedures.

The star recently revealed her plans to have a rib inserted into her face after years of drug abuse caused her nose to collapse.

In 2018, she underwent rib grafting after osteoporosis rotted away her cheekbones and gums, and after spending the last year getting lip fillers and botox, in addition to facial surgery, she hopes to get back to her best.

At the height of her use, she was reported to be taking up to five grams of cocaine a day, blowing almost £250,000 on the drug.

The star has since embarked on several rehab stints to battle her demons – and revealed she was finally clean in June last year after visiting a clinic in Mijas, Spain.

Danniella first appeared in EastEnders in 1990 aged 16 and stayed on the soap for three years.

She returned in 1996, but her time was cut short when she was fired for her off-screen behavior.

She relapsed shortly after but was axed again in 2000 after further disruptive behavior and admitted blowing £100,000 on cocaine at the time.

The part was recast from 2002 to 2005 and played by Kim Medcalf, but Danniella returned to the role again in 2009 until 2010.

She returned again in 2016 for a storyline surrounding the death of Peggy Mitchell’s on-screen mother, the date of her last appearance.
