"Now," she said on Instagram, "We're all very aware that I've done drugs in the past, years ago, 15 years ago now."

The mum-of-two explained she went to Pall Mall [Cosmetics] for an eye lift consultation where a doctor asked her if she ever had a nose job.

Kerry responded 'no' to which the doctor informed her: "Your nose is collapsing."

She continued: "I was like 'Oh my god', so I have damaged my nose from doing drugs. I

"I did get offered it to get fixed years ago and I said 'No, I don't want it fixed' because for me it was a reminder never to touch it again.

"And he said 'Would you like us to fix it for you?' and I started crying because it's like a massive 360 to where I was to where I am now and I think, wow, wow, wow, wow, yes okay I'll get it fixed."

Kerry finished out the video, adding: "So obviously I don't do drugs any more, I've turned my life round and I'm very very proud of myself. We all make mistakes, you know, and I think this is a reward just to me to get it fixed, but I'm scared."

In another video posted to her main Instagram feed, Kerry responded to the responses she received after posting the initial video about the surgery.

She began: "There's a few articles out today about my nose, right?"

"Because many, many, many, many, many, many years ago, I used to do drugs, as you all know," Kerry revealed before clarifying she's 'not touched drugs' in 'a million and one years'.

She went on: "It ruined the inside of my nose. So I'm getting it fixed.

"I just want to make that really clear that it has damaged my nose from all those years ago, and I've got an amazing opportunity from Pall Mall to get it fixed, which is what I'm going to do!"

She captioned the lengthy video: "I still carry shame and guilt with me! But my past does not define with a person, and it is my past!!! I’m so grateful to @pallmallcosmetics for giving me this amazing opportunity!"
