She may be a close friend S of self-con­fessed surgery ad­dict Jor­dan – who’s had a facelift, 11 boobs jobs, ve­neers, fillers, a nose job, Bo­tox and li­po­suc­tion – but Michelle Heaton tells Closer she’s ruled out go­ing un­der the knife for cos­metic rea­sons.

Af­ter dis­cov­er­ing she car­ried a mu­tated BRCA2 gene – mean­ing she had an 80 per cent chance of de­vel­op­ing breast can­cer and a 30 per cent chance of de­vel­op­ing ovar­ian can­cer – Michelle, 38, had a dou­ble mas­tec­tomy in 2012, fol­lowed by a full hys­terec­tomy two years later.

NO TIME FOR VAN­ITY

Michelle, who’s tak­ing part in Stand Up To Can­cer’s Great Ca­noe Chal­lenge, says, “I had fa­cial fillers a few years ago as I’d lost weight. They were great, but I haven’t been tempted to have them again. I’d never say never to a facelift! But I can’t see my­self hav­ing a big op­er­a­tion for cos­metic rea­sons. Be­cause I’ve been through the mas­tec­tomy and hys­terec­tomy – which were so hard – it would be dif­fi­cult to do some­thing out of van­ity. Ask me again in 10 years, though!”

For­mer Lib­erty X singer Michelle has been close pals with Jor­dan, 39 – aka Katie Price – for years. She was a brides­maid at her first wed­ding to Peter An­dre and even in­tro­duced her to her sec­ond husband Alex Reid.

It was re­cently re­vealed that Jor­dan’s third husband Kieran Hayler had been un­faith­ful with their nanny Nikki Brown – some­thing she de­nies – and that Jor­dan’s mother Amy had been di­ag­nosed with a ter­mi­nal lung con­di­tion, and Michelle says she’s been on-hand to of­fer a sym­pa­thetic ear.

JUG­GLING ACT

“I’ve been in touch with Katie a lot over the past few weeks,” she says. “I’ve known Amy for long time and it was very up­set­ting for every­one who knows and loves her. Katie’s strong, though, and she’s get­ting on well.”

In 2016, Michelle joined Natasha Hamil­ton and Kerry Ka­tona in Atomic Kit­ten as a re­place­ment for Liz Mcclarnon, due to Liz’s fear of fly­ing. She has toured with the band around the world, in­clud­ing in Aus­tralia and In­dia. But she ad­mits jug­gling work and home­life with husband of seven years Hugh Han­ley and their chil­dren, Faith, five, and Aaron, three, is a strug­gle.

She says, “My favourite thing is go­ing on tour with the Atomic Kit­ten girls. It’s hon­estly the most fun and we have the best time. But at home I have no help – no child­care, no grand­par­ents around to help. I’ve got a very un­der­stand­ing husband. We’re like ships in the night some­times. It’s how we carry on with our ca­reers and look af­ter our kids. We’re very happy this way.”
