Amy Childs reveals her breast implants EXPLODED and left her with a lump as she admits she regrets going under the knife
Amy Childs has revealed her breast implants exploded and left her with a non-cancerous lump earlier this year.
In May, the TV personality, 29, underwent an eight-hour operation after experiencing pain in her chest following a rupture in her left implant, and a month later, doctors discovered a lump had formed in her breast tissue from leakage.
The former TOWIE star, 29, has since downsized her implants from an EE cup to a C cup and admitted she regretted going under the knife for the first time at the age of 18.

Detailing the terrifying ordeal, the reality star told The Sun: 'I was so scared. It was so bad. I was in horrendous pain. I was terrified because implants can leak into your organs - it's not good at all.
'I didn't like my big boobs anyway and deeply regret having them - I looked so big, everyone used to just stare at my boobs and they were so wonky too, they were a mess.
'It was so dangerous, they said that if I'd waited a couple of years I would be in trouble.'
And while she was later informed that the lump wasn't cancerous, Amy has expressed her regret about having plastic surgery in the first place.

The It's All About Amy star revealed she saved up money for plastic surgery in her late teens, and had a total of three breast augmentations, one of which included a free boob job following her departure from ITVBe's The Only Way Is Essex in 2011.
Blonde beauty Amy - who urges her fans to carefully consider whether they want to go under the knife - has now gushed she's 'relieved' about her 'perfect' C cup chest.
Last month, it was revealed she split from boyfriend Ritchie, the father of her second child.
Amy - who has daughter Polly, two, with her ex-boyfriend Bradley Wright - welcomed a baby boy with businessman Ritchie in September 2018.

But the pair ended their relationship secretly a few months ago after almost two years together.
Ritchie has been described as a 'high-flying businessman' and Amy previously revealed she was pleased with his decision to stay out of the spotlight.
She said: 'He has a good job and he just doesn't want to be involved. He tells me "I love Polly and I'll love the newborn, but I don't want to be a part of it," and I have to respect that.

'With Ritchie, it's so refreshing to be with someone like that. I've had boyfriends who've been fame hungry, so it's nice to keep it separate.'
Amy discovered she was pregnant with her son - who will turn one next month - just eight months after Polly was born and admitted she was shocked by her second pregnancy.
She previously said: 'It was a really big shock. A little bit of me thought because it happened so soon after having Polly that I might have a miscarriage, as it's happened to a lot of my friends.
'But I tried to be positive and thought if this happens then it's meant to be. "It's overwhelming thinking about how quickly it happened, but now I truly believe it's meant to be.
'It took me so long to have Polly. I cried every time I came on my period because I wanted a baby so much.'
MailOnline contacted Amy's representative for further comment at the time of publication.
