I lied to get a free nose job on the NHS, now I’ve been signed off work due to ‘trolls’ but spend my days at the gym and nail salon – The Sun

A SHAMELESS mum-of-three who claimed she faked depression to get a free nose job on the NHS has been signed off work for seven weeks, claiming she's suffering from "stress and anxiety" due to social media trolls.

Now, Carla Bellucci, 37, spends her 'free time' at the gym and nail salon – and says she wouldn't rule out claiming benefits "if she has to".


The admin worker and model, from Borehamwood, Herts, hit headlines last month when she claimed she flirted with her GP and pretended to have a serious mental illness to get the £7,000 surgery – to fix a slight bump on her nose.

Since then she says she's been trolled for her actions, giving her cause to be signed off from work by her doctor.

Speaking exclusively to Fabulous Digital, without remorse, she said: "I am going to take what I am entitled to and keep taking.

"I have just as much a right as anyone else to use the system."

Despite being classified as 'not fit for work' Carla went to the hairdressers yesterday and has been shopping, getting her nails done and hitting the gym in her free time.

She's also claiming state sick pay, but insists she's not lying about her current condition.

Carla said: "I can’t possibly work behind a desk like this. I’d be no good.

"I know people will think I am lying about this but I don’t care.

"I know my attitude is shameless but I need to be ‘my best self’ for myself and my family.

"It’s important to maintain a good outside appearance. If you let yourself go on the outside you will let yourself go on the inside. I am fighting back.

"I have been off work for five weeks already and just got signed off for another two weeks.

"I have been referred to a counsellor and will likely have to go on SSP and possibly apply for benefits."


Carla was warned "you will get battered on social media" by Phillip Schofield, when she appeared on This Morning last month.

And she hasn't stopped posting sexy pics on Instagram – where she's now styling herself as an anti-bullying campaigner – since being signed off sick.

She said: "Being active on social media allows me to talk about issues important to me.

"I will not have anyone criticise me or slag me for being off work and going to the gym and posing up a storm on social media. I find it helps decreases my anxiety."

I don’t care if I am named the most hated person in Britain

Admitting she dreams of becoming a reality star, Carla said: "I would be amazing on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!

"I don’t care if I am named the most hated person in Britain, I tell it how it is and I stand by my views. Once you get to know me you will love me."

Doctors notes, showed to Fabulous Digital, reveal Carla has been declared "not fit to work" by her doctors, due to "stress and anxiety".

Her situation is due for review on July 29.

She has also self-referred for counselling and has been giving six weeks of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) at the taxpayers' expense, to help her cope with the trolls.

It’s the taxpayer's fault because they trolled me. They caused my anxiety

"I know this will help me be less anxious and stressed," she said.

"People are mean. I just admitted what I did.  Now I have to take time off work.

"People complain about me but fat people and drug addicts they are the true drain on the NHS."

And Carla says she can't understand why people think she might be faking, despite her past claims.

She said: "People moan about me getting doctors notes or sick pay or having to possibly go on Universal Credit, but it’s the taxpayer's fault because they trolled me.

"They caused my anxiety.

People should stop attacking me. They’re jealous and frankly the NHS is broken, not me

"A work colleague messaged me to say I didn’t look sick and I think that’s naive as mental illness manifests in all different ways.

"Yes, I faked depression. I have never suffered from depression in my life, but I do have stress and anxiety.

"People should stop attacking me. They’re jealous and frankly the NHS is broken, not me."

NHS statement

A spokesperson for the Royal Free London, NHS Foundation Trust said Ms Bellucci had the surgery as a result of an injury and no cosmetic surgery work was done on the NHS.

The Royal Free said in a statement: “The claims made by Carla Bellucci relating to Chase Farm Hospital are categorically untrue.”

Carla got her two-hour op at Chase Farm in Enfield, North London, which is part of the London Royal Free NHS Foundation Trust, in February.

She claimed: "I didn’t want to pay.  The system is broken. I just did what I had to do to get my surgery.

"I am more worthy than fat people wanting free weight loss surgery and drug addicts who waste millions of NHS money.

"The cost of my nose job is tiny in comparison. I get to use the NHS like everyone else.

"People feign outrage but most of those people would do exactly the same as me if given the chance. People should just grow up."
