‘I have got a really expressive face’: Former X Factor winner Sam Bailey, 39, confirms she HAS had Botox… after looking dramatically younger in flawless social media selfies
She surprised fans with her dramatically youthful complexion after sharing a series of flawless selfies across social media.
But after weeks of probing Sam Bailey, 39, has conceded that her sudden ability to look 15-years younger has very little to do with good genes, and everything to do with Botox.
Speaking to Loose Women on Friday morning, the former X Factor winner admitted she paid a visit to a London clinic as she braces herself for her milestone 40th birthday.

Initially dismissing any suggestion of liposuction by claiming ‘You can’t sing with lip fillers, your mouth goes all droopy,’ she added: ‘But I have a really expressive face.
‘I’m going to set the record straight, I was really scared but I went to a really beautiful place in Harley Street.
I’m turning 40 so I’m going to be having a little bit more for my 40th cos I’m having a big bash.’
The Leicester based singer was previously questioned on how she continues to look ‘younger everyday’ in her social media selfies, with each one appearing to show a more remarkably fresh-faced look than the last.

Commenting on a post from Wednesday, one said: ‘You look fabulous. You also look like are 25 years old. Younger everyday. Image when you get in the size you want to be, 21.’
Another said of the snap, taken ahead of her pantomime stint in Jack And The Beanstalk: ‘It’s a good job being beautiful ain’t a crime lol cuz u be arrested already lol (sic)’
Suggesting that Sam was relying on a beauty app, another hinted: ‘What a lovely panto photo….. You been using the ‘baby’ app again??’

As she prepares to turn 40 next year, Sam doesn’t seem to be relying on make-up because she even seems to be miraculously line-free, first thing in the morning.
Captured barefaced with a festive cup of tea in hand, Sam once again impressed her loyal fan base with her image.
Of her bedtime selfie, one fan said: ‘@SamBaileyREAL how the hell do you still look fantastic in bloody bed !!’
Another probed: ‘Are you getting bloody younger woman?’ while Sam delivered an enthusiastic, toothy smile for the camera.

Sam spoke exclusively to MailOnline about her plight with facial paralysis condition, Bell’s palsy, this July.
In 2014, one particularly harrowing experience of the condition inspired one of the most ‘chilling’ songs from her 2016 album.
Sam admitted that she almost took an accidental overdose while suffering from the condition, which causes paralysis of the facial nerve.

She told MailOnline: ‘I’ve written a song dedicated to my children for when I’m not around anymore.
‘When I had Bell’s palsy, I nearly took the wrong tablet and could potentially have died. It’s only because I noticed at the last minute that I’m still here.
‘It was a chilling moment. Around about the same time I had two friends who were suffering from breast cancer and had children in the same class as my daughter.
‘I was thinking, “What would you want to tell your kids if it was your last moment?”‘
Earlier this year, the star revealed that she’s never considered facial fillers as she ages because she is concerned she would get ‘addicted’ to it.
Sam told The Sun in August: ‘I don’t like the lines on my head. It makes me look like I’m stressed all the time and I’m getting old.
‘People say, “Why don’t you have fillers?” But I’m worried I might get addicted . . . and end up looking like a complete and utter bit of plastic. I’m quite happy the way I am.’
It was just this summer that Sam revealed she had felt pressured into correcting the distinctive gap between her two front teeth for confidence reasons.
