Alicia Douvall (born Sarah Howes, 24 July 1979)[1][2][3] is an English model and reality TV participant. She is also known for undergoing a considerable number of cosmetic procedures which have been reported widely in the British press.[3]

Personal life[edit]

Douvall's father was a self-made millionaire and Tory councillor.[2] His strict parenting, including restrictions on appearance, resulted in Douvall rebelling throughout her teens.[2] She developed anorexia aged 12, before being sent to boarding school.[2] Here she 'ran riot', being suspended six times before ultimately being expelled aged 14.[2] She began using alcohol and drugs, and her weight plummeted to under 6 stones.[2] She was thrown out of the family home by her parents, leading to spending nights in 'hostels with heroin addicts'.[2] Douvall changed her name to escape these memories.[2]

Douvall has two daughters, Georgia who was born when Douvall was 20, and Papaya, who was born when Douvall was 36, with an approximately 16 year gap between them.[4][5]

Douvall has had a number of plastic surgeries, including three breast augmentations and two rhinoplasties by the age of 24.[6][7] As of December 2016, she has had over 400 cosmetic procedures to her face, breasts, waist, buttocks and feet, spending over £1m on such operations.[5] This includes 16 breast augmentations.[5][6][8][9][10]


She is the owner and founder of Douvall's skincare company.[citation needed]

In 2006, she appeared in Celebrity Love Island.[citation needed]

In 2010, she appeared in the TV Documentary 50 Greatest Plastic Surgery Shockers.[citation needed]

Douvall has appeared in numerous television programs, documentaries and reality television shows. She appeared in her own BBC Three documentary Glamour Models, Mum and Me in 2010 and again in the show entitled Glamour Model Mum, Baby and Me in 2012.[citation needed]

In January 2015, she took part in the Channel 5 reality television show Celebrity Big Brother.[citation needed] She was the second housemate to be evicted from the show.[citation needed]
