Ex EastEnders’ star, Martine McCutcheon, has appeared on an episode of this week’s ITV show, Loose Women to discuss her reasons for deciding to have Botox.
Unlike most celebrities, Martine did not have Botox simply to look younger and to iron out her wrinkles. The star explained in her recent appearance on the show that she had struggled with an illness that left her looking, in her words, ‘ravaged.’ This is what the star had to say, “I just looked in the mirror and thought ‘I’ve always had nice skin, I’ve always had a nice beautiful glow – and now it’s gone’. So I had Botox.” The illness had clearly affected the star and took its toll on her body, to the point where she felt she needed to do something about it.
After having Botox for the first time, Martine explained that she was not happy with the treatment, “I didn’t like it, It made me look a bit strange. But then I had it again and Oh my God, I loved it, I just looked like me but not a creased pillow, basically.” Following Martine’s admission, panellist Ruth Langsford also added that she would be open to the idea of Botox in the future.
