Martine McCutcheon, 45, reveals her first Botox treatment as ex-EastEnders star tries to get rid of eye lines

EASTENDERS and Love Actually legend Martine McCutcheon has revealed she's had Botox.

The 45-year-old actress, famous as PM's assistant Natalie in the hit Christmas movie, filmed the moment she had the treatment.

She is shown at a clinic pointing to the lines beside her eyes, saying: "My main concern in here. Can we sort that out with Botox?"

A clinician tells her: "Yes of course. We can put some Botox here just to ever so slightly lift it and smooth over those lines.

"Yes so when you smile – smile for me – all those dynamic lines that you see, these will be ever so slightly smoothed."

She is then shown getting the jab, which works by blocking the nerve signals to certain muscles so they become more relaxed.

The star was earlier shown heading to get the treatment, saying: "Hi everybody.

"I am really excited because I am on my way to the Therapie Clinic to have my first ever treatment."

Botox – the trade name for a substance injected into the skin which is known to inhibit muscle movement – is popular with many celebs.

It can prevent wrinkles from developing or worsening.

While available on the NHS for certain conditions, they aren't funded if they're purely for cosmetic reasons.

The NHS website estimates each botulinum toxin injection costs £150-£350 per session.

Martine was a huge star in EastEnders as Tiffany Raymond, with 22 million viewers tuned in to see her final scenes in 1998.

She went on to appear in Love Island and this year starred on The Masked Singer and in Celebrity Gogglebox.
