BBC Traitors champ more confident than ever after forehead reduction surgery

A winner of the iconic BBC reality show The Traitors has revealed she is feeling "more confident than ever" after having surgery.

Meryl Williams, 27, is still in recovery after going under the knife for forehead reduction surgery two weeks ago.

Taking to social media, Meryl – who has dwarfism – said that her forehead had always been "a big insecurity" for her and she was happy to finally get it sorted.

It is estimated that the procedure, which involves bringing the hairline further down the forehead set the reality TV star back a minimum of £5k.

But that is just a small dent for Meryl, who won a share of £101k after coming out on top of the hit BBC show.

After the show, Meryl gave up her previous job as a call centre worker to follow her dreams of being a social media influencer.

Speaking after going under the knife, Meryl said: "My forehead has always been a big insecurity of mine.

"I had a full fringe from the age of five, but I didn't think there was going to be anything that would help it."

Williams said that she had met someone who had had the procedure previously and that it had got her thinking.

After speaking to a consultant, the influencer said that she waited for eight months to decide whether the surgery was right for her.

She later described the operation as "straight forward and there were no complications".

She added: "My head still is quite swollen. He cut along the hairline and pulled my hairline down and then removed the excess skin."

According to the Traitors star, the procedure took just two hours, and also led to some bone shaving to smoothen out her face.

Meryl is now on a course of strong painkillers, with her joking that she "still can't feel my head right now".

But she later admitted she might have been "dramatic", pointing out that she has "quite a low pain threshold".

Williams came out on top on the critically acclaimed BBC show, when she correctly banished so-called 'traitors' from the castle the group were staying in.

Together with fellow contestants Hannah and Aaron, Meryl won a share of over £100k.

Reflecting on her experience, Meryl – who lives in Edinburgh – said she is thankful for her experience on the programme.

"Being on The Traitors completely changed my life. The money from the show has allowed me to do what I'm doing," she beamed.

"It's opened a lot of doors and has broadened my horizons".
