KATIE Price suffered a horror nightmare with filler injections hours before her holiday that left her barely able to smile.
Katie, 42, was offered the cosmetic procedure for free but ended up with ‘tight lips’ and ‘lumps’ above her cheekbones ahead of her Turkish break.
The former glamour model had to book an emergency appointment at a clinic elsewhere to fix her appearance, as she feared she looked like Disney’s Maleficent.
She has now jetted off to Turkey with her boyfriend Carl Woods and has vowed to stop having work done on her face.
A source exclusively told The Sun online: “Katie was contacted by a business on Instagram offering her free fillers, but once they were done, Katie realised the fillers they’d done didn’t suit her.
“The sides of her face, above her cheekbones, had big lumps on – she was saying she looked like Maleficent – and her lips weren’t great either – it was so tight she could barely smile.
“She had to get an emergency appointment with Jeanie at Rochester House Clinic in Essex and get the fillers dissolved just hours before her holiday.
“She’s really pleased with the result and has vowed to stop having work done on her face.”
The Sun Online has contacted Katie’s rep for comment.
Despite Katie’s vow, she is planning to get ‘his and hers’ teeth while on holiday in Turkey with Carl.
The couple have flown there with Katie’s children from her marriage to Peter Andre, Junior and Princess, and wants to treat herself to new veneers.
However, although she is looking forward to plenty of family time too, Katie has been left “heartbroken” after being forced to leave oldest child Harvey back in the UK.
Doctor’s ruled Harvey, 18, unfit to travel after he was released from hospital last week following a 10 day stay – including time spent in intensive care.
After she found out the news, a source told The Sun Online: “Doctors told Katie it would be better for Harvey’s health if he stayed at home.
“She’s heartbroken but of course she’ll take doctors advice.
“Harvey will stay at home with his carer and Katie will still go – she’s taking Princess and Junior and some of their friends and she didn’t want to cancel their holiday and let them down, especially as Princess’s birthday party was disrupted by Harvey going to hospital. “
