Jade Goody says she wants boobs like I’m A Celebrity winner Kerry McFadden.
Jade, who's currently starring in Channel Five's Back To Reality says she was inspired by Kerry when she visited the show. She said: ‘I cannot wait to have a boob job. I want a EE’.
Jade recently hit the headlines thanks to her dramatic post-pregnancy weight-loss. She gave birth to a son, Bobby Jack, in June last year, but while diet and exercise helped her size 14 figure shrink to a toned size 10, the Bermondsey lass is unhappy with how pregnancy has left her breasts. She said: 'You have a child and your boobs turn into bits of chicken. I cannot wait till I have a boob job.’
Jade's boyfriend, TV presenter Jeff Brazier, says: ‘She wants a boob job because she thinks her chest has sagged a little bit since having Bobby. I think she looks fine, but it's nothing to do with me. I'm not a lover of plastic surgery though.’
It seems Jade, 22, is suffering the same fate as many new mums. Breasts can lose shape and volume due to breast-feeding and fluctuations in weight pre- and post-pregnancy. All women go up several cup sizes during pregnancy and, as the breasts swell with milk, this causes the fibrous bands which support the breasts to break down and the skin to stretch. When the breasts then shrink back to their normal size, they settle into the stretched skin and gravity pulls them down. Putting on weight and then losing it can have the same effect.
Ron Myers, director of consultingroom.com, a website set up to provide unbiased information to clients seeking cosmetic procedures, says: ‘Unfortunately, once the skin has been stretched, there’s little you can do apart from cut away the excess skin.’
Happily it seems that Jade's surgical aspirations stop at her boobs. She says: 'If you want to lose weight, don't have liposuction - go the gym. And I don't think you should change your face because that's part of your personality'.

What are the risks and how much does it cost?
What are the risks? As with any major operation under general anaesthetic, there is a small risk of chest problems, particularly if you are a smoker, and a small risk of thrombosis of veins in your legs, particularly if you are taking a contraceptive pill. In addition, there is also a small risk of infection and bleeding.
What you should do before the operation? If you smoke, you should stop now. If you are taking the contraceptive pill, change to an alternative method at least six weeks beforehand. If you are overweight, reduce your weight beforehand.
How much does it cost? Certain health authorities do make special cases for performing this operation on the NHS, but you would have to present a very good case as there is not usually a medical reason for undergoing surgery. However, you should always visit your GP before embarking upon a major cosmetic procedure.
Private costs for a breast lift operation range from £4,500-£5,500
