Claire King refuses to have plastic surgery again.

The "Emmerdale" star - who previously underwent a mini facelift - has vowed to never go under the knife again as she is comfortable in her own skin now.

She said: "I had invasive surgery. It was temporary and it did the job at the time, but it's not the thing for me. I've got rheumatoid arthritis so I have a low immune system. I can't risk it again."

And whilst she thinks surgery was good for "getting her through that transition period", she doesn't think it was a permanent fix.

She added: "I was going to castings and meeting old friends with new faces. I had low confidence, I'd been through a bad time.

"Surgery was good for getting me through that transition period. Once you get into your 40s you feel a bit lost. There are good parts for a certain few, but it is always the same faces. So I thought am I going from the hotpot in my youth to Driving Miss Daisy? There was no in-between."

And the 55-year-old actress is happy to "grow old ­disgracefully".

She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I spend more time in hospitals than I do at parties. I've got a chap who doesn't give a damn about the celeb side of things, so it keeps you grounded ... I'm happy growing old ­disgracefully, but I just want to look fresh. I'm helping nature along a bit without going under the knife. The older you get the more you realise the things important to you are different to those in your 20s and 30s - like your quality of life."
