Nicola McLean could face eye surgery when she leaves the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house as a light sensitivity problem is getting worse
Nicola McLean could face emergency eye surgery when she leaves the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house.
The 25-year-old former glamour model sparked concern among fans after she was seen covering one eye during an argument with Kim Woodburn, and has been sporting dark glasses in the mornings and evenings, and it has now emerged she learned before entering the famous abode she has developed a sensitivity to light.
And though she sought medical attention before going on the show, her condition is believed to be getting worse and she "can't control" her peepers, so may need to undergo corrective surgery.
A source told The Sun Online: "She can't control her eye.
"It keeps going off in all different directions and wandering towards her nose.
"It causes her terrible migraines," they added.
"She suffers from light sensitivity which is why she wears dark glasses in the morning and evening, and she has to wear special contacts with dark lenses throughout the day.
"This is only a recent development but the eye surgeon has warned her that she may soon need surgery to sort it all out."
According to the insider, Nicola previously underwent an eye operation when she was a child.
A spokesperson for Nicola - who has sons Rocky and Striker with her husband Tom Williams - confirmed she has seen a specialist about her problem.
They said: "Nicola visited an eye surgeon last month before discovering she suffers from light sensitivity."
The blonde beauty's issue has attracted attention on Twitter, with some users even questioning whether her "gammy" eye is actually glass, and her friends think she'll be distraught if she ever reads the message as she didn't think her problem was noticeable.
The source said: "She's received tonnes of abuse on Twitter and she'll be so upset.
"Nicola didn't think it was that bad or that anyone would notice."
