An aspiring glamour model who said she wants an abortion so she could appear on Big Brother has today revealed her growing baby bump, UK Daily Mail reports
Josie Cunningham, 24, sparked outrage when she had a £4,800 breast enlargement operation on the NHS. She is now four months pregnant after falling into a life of prostitution.
Yesterday, the aspiring model said she planned to abort the child to further her television career. She told Sunday Mirror; “An abortion will further my career. This time next year I won’t have a baby. Instead I’ll be famous, driving a bright pink Range Rover and buying a big house. Nothing will get in my way. I want to be famous for being me – Josie Cunningham, a glamour model in my own right. If I want to do that I need to put my career first.’
Ms Cunningham, from Leeds, said she had been on the shortlist to appear on Big Brother – but was reluctant to proceed because of her pregnancy.
Ms Cunningham has now posed in a series of photographs showing off her growing baby bump.
Today, Ms Cunningham posted a confusing message on Twitter to those criticising her – which hinted she may be getting more surgery on the NHS.
It read: ‘Thanks for strengthening my case for more cosmetic surgery on NHS! Proof that a certain feature affects my life.’
She also posted an image of a hand-written message which either read: ‘Thank You £0 Online Trolls Josie x’ or ‘Thank You to Online Trolls Josie x.’
Furthermore, as mothers-to-be are entitled to free dental care, Ms Cunningham is said to be applying to receive a variety of procedures on the NHS.
The shameless model is reportedly set to have root canal surgery, a dental implant, a filling and her wisdom teeth removed.
Ms Cunningham said she was pleased the NHS would be footing the bill for her dentistry.
‘I didn’t get pregnant to have my teeth sorted, but it’s a massive bonus,’ she told The Sun.
‘I’m sure people will be annoyed that I’m accepting this freebie but I couldn’t care less.’
She said that she was annoyed the free dental care would only cover a silver filling, but added: ‘I guess beggars can’t be choosers’.
Ms Cunningham revealed she was pregnant last month – posting an image of her baby’s scan to her 927 followers on Twitter.
The unmarried mother-of-two, who says she is no longer working as an escort, does not know who the father of her unborn child is.
She says he could either be a surgeon who paid her £1,000 for a night of passion or a friend she has casual sex with.
Miss Cunningham hit the headlines last year when she underwent cosmetic surgery to increase her bust from 32A to a 36DD at St James’s Hospital in Leeds.
Last month she told how she had turned to escort work at the suggestion of a friend and had slept with her fourth client, an unmarried surgeon in his mid-30s, charging him £450 for dinner and £1,000 for a night of sex.
‘I’m ashamed to say I don’t know who the father is,’ Miss Cunningham told Closer magazine. ‘I’ve only slept with one client, but I’ve also been having casual sex with a friend.’
She was still seeing two clients a week until discovering that she was expecting a baby, and has since worked on adult phone lines.
Miss Cunningham has a congenital medical condition which means she has no breast tissue.
She says she was bullied about her flat chest from the age of 14.
Recently she decided she wants her breast implants removed – again paid for by the NHS.
