Although Kerry says her condition has not improved, she is hoping tablets and further investigations will help her return to health.

Speaking in her latest OK! magazine column: "I'm really swollen and it hasn't got any better. I ended up going to A&E as I was so worried about it.

"They've told me that they need to investigate further. So for now, my doctor at Pall Mall Cosmetics has given me some water tablets which will hopefully help with the swelling."

Kerry, who shared her fears over her tummy tuck and eyelid lift surgeries, revealed she feared she was dying due to a crippling panic attack and her swollen throat.

Kerry said the panic attack stems from health anxiety as she awaits corrective surgery in January on her botched tummy tuck and will also get an eye lift.

Feeling scared ahead of the procedures, the television personality revealed her mental health took a turn for the worst last week and has left her reaching out for medical help.

"I had a massive panic attack last week. It was the first one I’ve had in a while,” she explained.

“My body has been swollen since I had surgery last year. My whole body is sore and puffy – my legs, my stomach, my face, my neck. I feel like I need popping.

"I was lying down in bed and I felt like I couldn’t breathe. My throat and chest felt really tight, it was awful. I felt like I was going to die. I’ve arranged a call with my doctor but if it gets worse I’ll go to A&E. I suffer from health anxiety and I’m really scared."

The TV personality underwent a botched tummy tuck last year which "cut her belly button off".

She recently revealed in podcast Wheel of Misfortune with comedian Anna Saccone: "I had a secret tummy tuck last year. I should never have had it done, and they cut my belly button off."

Revealing her tummy, Kerry said: "That's the old belly button, that shouldn’t be there like that."

Unsure of how to react, Anne tired to avoid mocking Kerry, but the Atomic Kitten star said: "Oh God, I don’t mind taking the p**s out of it it’s absolutely fine."

To which Anna replied: "Okay, well if I'm being frank Kerry, I've seen it on the back of a packet of fags".

Agreeing, Kerry joked: "That is what it looks like with a warning sign, oh my god with some smoke coming out of it!”
