She nearly lost her life when she was forced to have emergency surgery to have her breasts implants removed.

But now Danielle Lloyd has opened up about her new appearance, and admitted that going back to a AA-cup has actually increased her body confidence.

Appearing on This Morning today to talk about her battle with post-natal depression and her implant issues, Danielle said: 'It's strange because as soon as they took them out I wanted to have them back in again.

More confident than ever: Danielle Lloyd said that while she was terrified about having her implants removed at first, she now feels more confident after returning to a AA-cup

'But now that I've actually lived with my breasts the way they are, I feel a lot more confident.'

Danielle, 28, also said she wishes that she had never gone under the knife to have her breasts enlarged in the first place.

She said: 'I wish now that I'd waited, and waited until I was older. I would probably never have had surgery done.'

But while Danielle spoke about her medical issues over the past few months, the main reason she was on the show was to talk about her battle with post-natal depression following the births of her sons Archie and Harry.

She said: 'I felt really embarrassed about going to
the doctor because I know people think, “What's she got to complain about” But the doctor said to me it's nothing to do with what's
going on in your life, it's a chemical imbalance in your brain. And then I wasn't
afraid of it anymore.'

Prior to seeking medical help, however, Danielle had found herself seeking solace in the bottle, leading to her becoming almost dependent on alcohol.

Talking about addiction to drink, Danielle said: 'I'd been through so much with the birth and then going back and forward to the hospital with Harry.

'It started off a glass of wine a night, I
was saying to Jamie that I really deserved the glass of wine, I'd say
to him that i deserved that glass of wine after getting the kids to bed and all that I'd done during the day.

'But then that one glass of wine turned into a bottle or two bottles a night. And it got to the point that at three in the afternoon that I was waiting for six so I could have a drink.

'It wasn't until Jamie sat me down that I realised I needed to get help.'

After being prescribed anti-depressants, however, Danielle said things got much better, and she is now looking forward to marrying fianc Jamie O'Hara in just nine weeks time.
