Tara P-T was desperate to fix her nose in time for pal Will's wedding
She had major reconstructive surgery in 2006, but Tara Palmer-Tomkinson‘s coke-ravaged nose has continued to be an embarassment to the socialite.
Fortunately, the 39-year-old arrived at Westminster Abbey for the Royal Wedding on Friday with sister Santa looking regal in electric blue.
Fillers in Tara‘s nose – still distorted in recent snaps – gave it a straighter, more natural shape.
While she;s been clean from drugs for years, Tara admits her collapsed nose is the result of a £400-a-day coke habit.
In 2006, pictures first emerged of the problem when her septum caved in. At the time, Tara said: ‘I’m surprised it’s taken people so long to notice it.
‘I hate it so much and I wanted to hide it. I could have had a nose job to sort it out but I’m scared to death of surgery.’
At the time, she told Now her new nose worked a treat but had ‘gone slightly wonky from sleeping on one side. That’s because it doesn’t set properly for a year.’
The It girl went on the hunt for a new surgeon after her doctor Martin Kelly, husband of actress Natascha McElhone, died suddenly in 2008 from a heart condition.
‘I’m so paranoid about my nose – I can’t wait to have it done but I need to find someone to do it,’ she explained earlier this year.
‘I want to get it right. I don’t want to be picked on. I read last week that someone said they wanted to vomit when they saw it.’
