Has Chelsee Healey had any plastic surgery?

The soapstar has been very open about her breast augmentation surgery. At just 18, she went under the knife to get size G boobs, but at 25 had them reduced to a D cup.

She told the Mirror: “My breasts were weighing me down, physically and mentally. I was so unhappy.”

However, although Chelsee's only spoken out about her breast surgery, many fans believe she’s had more than just a boob job, arguing that her facial structure has changed dramatically in the last few years. With perfect teeth, a slimmer nose and smoother looking skin, Chelsee has been accused of having veneers, rhinoplasty and Botox. There’s also accusations of lip fillers, as despite always having plump limps they now appear to be a different shape.

Chelsea Healey and Hollyoaks

Chelsee made her Hollyoaks debut as Goldie McQueen - a typically tough and gobby McQueen sister - in November 2016. Her rough around the edges character isn't a far cry from her past roles, as she insists she 'must suit being tacky'(or maybe you're just a fab actor, Chels?)

Only a few months later, she announced her pregnancy, and her co-star Jennifer Metcalfe revealed the pregnant pair often have 'emotional moments' on set.

While Chels has announced she'll be temporarily leaving the show to have her baby, producers have assured fans they're going to create storylines that will allow for her to come back. Phew!
