Former Big Brother winner Josie Gibson underwent a tummy tuck at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital to get rid of her 6lb 'belly blanket'.
The 31-year-old reality star signed up to Celebrity Botched Bodies following her dramatic seven stone weight loss which left her with significant excess skin.
Josie, who won the 2010 series of Big Brother, enlisted the help of leading plastic surgeon Elaine Sassoon in scenes shown on Channel 5 at the weekend.
In the toe-curling footage Elaine removes a 'strip tyre width of flab' and Josie's belly button to ensure an even incision.
During the operation a blood vessel bursts but the bleeding is quickly stopped and the procedure is successful.
