Abi spoke exclusively to Reveal earlier this month about her nightmare after suffering a reaction to lip-plumping fillers, and today she repeated her story of warning on ITV.

"I went in for a different procedure, a beauty treatment of exfoliation, and the person who did that for me could also fillers so they suggested to do that for me," she explained.

"A ten minute fix turned into six months of hell."

She continued: "It was like cement in my lip. It was really painful and over time, over the six months, I got blisters and the scar tissue got really sore and there were ulcers so everything was reacting."

As Abi told us, she stressed again how important it is for people to research if they want a cosmetic procedure carried out. "You need to look into where you're going and who you're seeing and if they're actually capable and professional enough to do that."

She added that she's now been put off future cosmetic enhancements.

As well as speaking to Reveal and ITV, she also shared her story in Katie Piper's show Bodyshockers earlier this month.

Abi had to undergo six reconstructive procedures in six months to fix her lips.
