Mother-of-two Josie Cunningham, 23, has revealed that she is still smoking 20 cigarettes per day, despite the fact that she is pregnant with her third child.

And the former glamour model has stated that she will keep doing so - unless the NHS pay for her to stub out her habit.

Speaking to The Sun, Josie - who recently claimed she is 'too famous' to take public transport - said: "It's not illegal for me to smoke while pregnant.

"I am hoping my doctor will help me get off the fags. But the public will probably whinge about that as well."

Josie, who is seven months pregnant, also explained that Leeds City Council have been paying for cabs to take her and her children on the school run every day - at a cost of £150 per week.

It's not the first time Josie has sparked controversy; in April, when she was 18 weeks pregnant, she told the Sunday Mirror that she was planning on an abortion to ensure she could still appear in Big Brother.

"I'm on the verge of becoming famous and I'm not going to ruin it.

"It's not illegal for me to smoke while pregnant. I am hoping my doctor will help me get off the fags. But the public will probably whinge about that as well."

After receiving death threats, Josie - who also has enjoyed a boob job and Botox on the NHS - had a change of mind.
