Jane Park, now 21, most recently underwent a Brazilian bum lift that left her fighting for her life and saw her rushed to hospital with suspected sepsis.
She became Britain’s youngest ever EuroMillions lottery winner when she was just 17, and has splurged some of her winnings on a range of cosmetic procedures in the four years since.
Now Jane, who has spent £50,000 on a raft of treatments since her £1million windfall in 2013, has revealed she is still in agony several months on.
Speaking about her ordeal on the This Morning sofa today, Jane told presenter Eammon Holmes: ‘It’s a bit better, it’s not massively great.’
Jane has previously said she was considering legal action against Camelot over the win that funded her procedures, claiming her life would have been ’10 times better’ had she not become a millionaire at such a young age.
Lottery winner Jane Park says she if she could have her win again she would do things differently and not go public

Jane’s botched bottom procedure took place in Turkey and is believed to have cost £5,000.
The winner suffered a severe allergic reaction which made her face balloon in the days after the procedure. After returning to the UK, her condition worsened.
Has regrets about her win
Although she ultimately decided against her threatened legal action against Camelot, Miss Park, who lives in Scotland, still regrets going public with her win, and says she would never take part in a lottery draw again.
As lottery fever grips Britain ahead of tonight’s Euromillions draw – which could see someone win Britain’s biggest ever single jackpot of £168 million – Jane reflected on her own windfall on the This Morning sofa.
‘I suppose now that I am a bit older it is a bit better, looking back it wasn’t much of a fairytale.
She said of the publicity surrounding her win: ‘I would have done it differently.’

JANE’S SHOPPING LIST
Jane Park scooped £1million in 2013.
One of her first purchases was a breast augmentation, increasing her bust to 34FF.
Vowed to spend her windfall on a customised white Range Rover with pink trim, a season ticket for her beloved Hibernian football team and a holiday in Ibiza with her friends.
Bought herself a house in Prestonpans, Scotland, for £169,995 but recently sold it at a £20,000 profit.
Bought a VW Beetle, a BMW, a purple Range Rover and went shopping for a Mercedes.
Travelled to Turkey for a £5,000 bottom lift.
She told presenters Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford: ‘At 17 it’s a completely different ball game. I just wanted to buy things that I always wanted.
‘At 17 it’s always going to be harder… I would have done it differently.’
Wants to be sensible with money
Jane explained that she lives ‘comfortably’ now having invested her money ‘sensibly’ in property, and insisted that she’s ‘not miserable’ with her life.
‘You have to invest wisely,’ she said.
‘At 17, that was a lot to think about.
‘Everyone assumed I was going to blow it.
‘I’m trying to be sensible, I’m trying not to be a stereotypical teen. I wanted people to look at my life and think something positive has come out of it.’
But she urges any young person buying a ticket for tonight’s whopping draw not to go public should they get ‘lucky’, and added that she wouldn’t be taking part herself.
‘Absolutely not. I would also encourage any young people not to go public, they should listen to what their family say.’
Jane hired bodyguards in the past after she received threats of an acid attack. She was also found guilty of drink driving and banned for two years
Jane was charged with drink-driving earlier this year, she was fined £900 and banned from driving for 18 months after pleading guilty at Edinburgh Sheriff Court.
She was three times over the limit when she was arrested at a McDonald’s drive-thru in the early hours of October 8, 2016.
She admitted having 66 mgs of alcohol in her breath, when the limit is 22, while driving the BMW 1 series in Loanhead on the outskirts of Edinburgh.
Just before she was banned from driving, Jane went shopping for a £50,000 Mercedes and said she would hire a chauffeur instead.
Cosmetic procedures to drink-driving charges
Miss Park became the UK’s youngest ever lottery winner when she scooped £1million on a Euromillions lucky dip ticket.
She was so young when she won in 2013 that they had to put Irn Bru in her champagne flute for the press photo shoot after the win.
Jane was also charged with drink-driving earlier this year. She was fined £900 and banned from driving for 18 months after pleading guilty at Edinburgh Sheriff Court.
Over the past five years Jane has received online abuse following her win, and even hired bodyguards at one point after she was threatened with an acid attack – she felt the media attention made things worse.
‘At the start it was very much like that I was overly excited, I was so happy. I was rich and famous.
‘But the press attention can be a dark side of it.’
The 21-year-old, who won the cash aged 17, has reportedly spent about £50,000 of her winnings on cosmetic procedures

Hitting the headlines
When she won the lottery in 2013, Park vowed to spend it on a customised white Range Rover with pink trim, a season ticket for her beloved Hibernian football team and a holiday in Ibiza with her friends.
She bought herself a house in Prestonpans, Scotland, for £169,995 but recently sold for a £20,000 profit after four years, because she wanted to move back in with her mother after feeling lonely living alone.
Miss Park has previously bought a VW Beetle, a BMW, a purple Range Rover, and went shopping for a Mercedes. A friend said she would consider the £30,000-£50,000 a chauffeur would cost ‘money well spent’.
The lottery winner has hit the headlines numerous times over the years, including when she flashed her 34FF breasts on a Halloween night out in November last year.
