Tara seems to have nostril trouble

We want to give Tara Palmer-Tomkinson a hug.

The 40-year-old former cocaine addict had an op to rebuild her nose last June, but as she left the Radio Five Live studios in London last week, it looked as if the left nostril was falling in on itself again.

The 5ft 8in star also looked worryingly skinny, with her flares hanging off her size 6 frame, while her skin looked blotchy.

Tara had just finished a rambling radio interview with Richard Bacon in which she confessed she’s as ‘mad as a box of frogs’ and was forced to deny Twitter accusations that she was drunk.

She admitted that, having given up alcohol for some years, she now drinks but insisted:

‘I can’t ever say I’m past my problems… but I haven’t had anything to drink today or yesterday or the day before.’
