Danniella Westbrook has said doctors plan to use one of her ribs to replace a cheekbone.
The ex-EastEnders actress said one of her cheekbones had completely gone, but that it was not the result of drug abuse.
“It’s gone because of osteoporosis, nothing to do with cocaine at all.”
Westbrook, whose septum in her nose famously collapsed because of drug use, said: “If it was cocaine I’d say it was, like when I had the hole in my face.”
The ex-Celebrity Big Brother contestant said “bad dental work”, rather than drugs, had led to osteoporosis.
“I’ve got myself together. I live mostly in Spain. I have a nice life”, she said.
