By Jill Foster for the Daily Mail. For the year-old would-be glamour model has been busy deflecting the salvos fired at her from some very disgruntled taxpayers. Especially as she is hoping that the NHS will, once again, carry out the procedure.
Critics argue that the NHS money used to increase her breast size should have been spent on far more deserving cases. Indeed, it was revealed that just a few miles away from her home in Leeds, two-year-old cerebral palsy sufferer Oliver Dockerty had been turned down for funding for an operation which could allow him to walk.
Angry members of the public have even created an online petition demanding that Josie pay the money that was spent on her surgery back to the state. Just try and go through it yourselves before you comment. So what exactly is this hell that Josie Cunningham has endured? Despite her tomboyish tendencies, she dreamed of becoming a model from the tender age of eight or nine.
But at 13 she began to be taunted by school bullies about her appearance, shattering her confidence. The police were called and several of them got cautions. I was terrified. I was privately tutored at home, but it meant that my GCSE coursework suffered. She enjoyed the Navy, but left when she and her former boyfriend, a business negotiator whom she prefers not to name, decided to start a family.
It caused a whole lot of problems. Her self-esteem was further eroded when, she says, another boyfriend was violent towards her. She shows me a scar on her left arm where she says he stabbed her. Video : ITV Daybreak. We split up after he was violent towards me. It got pretty nasty, and my confidence was at an all-time low.
Listening to Josie, there can be little doubt that her personal life has been dysfunctional and often unhappy — but most people would surely question whether she is right to fixate on her breast size as the explanation for everything that has gone wrong.
She, however, is adamant this is the root of all her woes. From the moment I woke up, all I would think about is how I could get breast surgery. They found that I was psychologically stable, but on the edge of depression. So it was him, not me, who suggested 36DD and I went along with it. It was a rushed decision. Unrepentant: Josie sees no problem with the fact the taxpayer has funded her boob job. And, rather naively, she says she was unprepared for the backlash this would provoke. I felt like now I could have a good life with my children and at last I could be a good mum.
But I had no idea the outrage it would cause. When the inevitable offer of a topless shoot in a tabloid newspaper arrived, she jumped at the chance of fulfilling a lifelong dream. This is what I wanted to do. Two fingers up to my ex-partners, too. I felt like a proper woman for the first time. Critics will say it was also a big two fingers up to the taxpaying public. But Josie remains convinced that her surgery was as worthwhile as any other.
Big Brother would be really cool. I just want to look in the mirror and not feel ugly. Indeed, she claims she has been approved for another cosmetic operation on the NHS, apparently unrelated to her breasts, the details of which she refuses to divulge. I cried with happiness. But I suppose I do have quite a few. Indeed, Josie would like nothing better than to settle down and marry. She has recently been in a relationship with — surprise surprise — a footballer. Again, she prefers not to name him.
If Josie gets lucky, there will be no need — the operation may well be funded by the NHS. The views expressed in the contents above are those of our users and do not necessarily reflect the views of MailOnline. So why does she now want YOU to pay to remove them?
