Model defends faking having depression to get £7,000 NHS nose job

A woman who lied about having depression to get a nose job on the NHS has defended her actions and admitted that she would do it again

Carla Bellucci joined Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby on This Morning to reveal how she managed to cheat the system to get the surgery, worth £7,000 for free, claiming that she flirted with a GP who then guided her through the process.

‘I did bend the truth to get a nose job,’ Carla began. ‘I lied, but I do work. I was born here. I feel like I’ve not really done anything that wrong.’

Talking about why she wanted to go through with the procedure in the first place, she explained: ‘It was something on my mind. It was slightly off centre and had a little bump.’

Having paid a visit to a cosmetic surgeon, Carla confessed that she was advised against splashing out and then joked around with friends about getting it done for free.

‘It started off as a bit of banter between friends,’ she continued. ‘One evening I said, “I’m going to see if I can get this nose job.”

‘I said I was unhappy about I’ve never been clinically depressed I just said it. I was advised to say a few things by a GP.’

When Holly and Phil asked whether or not she’d cheat the system again, Carla admitted: ‘I think I am one of many. Maybe there’s cracked in the systems.

‘I’m not saying what I done was right, but I don’t live in regret.’

Naturally viewers were furious about Carla’s actions and didn’t hold back on social media.

‘Absolutely outrageous this sick woman faking depression too get a nose job!’ blasted one. ‘She should be made too pay for her NHS treatment from now on. Its people like her that get it all when the people that need it can’t get the help!!!!!!’

‘I am disgusted at the attitude on the lady who has lied about a nose job,’ slammed another.

‘I am a nurse and see how hard the NHS struggles to meet increasing demands and she has outright lied! She should be prosecuted and the money reclaimed.’

This Morning airs weekdays at 10.30am on ITV.
