I'm a bigger bitch than ever after my pounds 5,000 boob job; EMMERDALE ADELE'S BACK.. WITH FRONT.

Byline: By ZOE NAUMAN

THE bitch is back... with more front than ever. Actress Adele Silva is about to return to our screens in Emmerdale as man-eater Kelly Windsor.

Teenage temptress Kelly was last seen five years ago when she left the soap in a blaze of controversy after cheating on her husband by bedding her half-brother.

But on June 24 Kelly is returning with a sexy new look thanks to a boob job which has taken Adele's figure from 32B to a curvy 32C.

Speaking for the first time about her op, Adele, 24, revealed: "I had them done in October last year. It cost me pounds 5,000 and I'm really pleased with the result.

"I don't see the point in lying about it as you can blatantly see.

"I've always said I would think about having it done.

"I didn't want massive boobs, I just wanted them to look nice in dresses."

Adele added: "I would never have botox, though. As an actress it takes all the expression out of your face."

Adele's new figure fits neatly with character Kelly's make-over - she now looks like she would be more at home in Footballer's Wives, arriving back in Emmerdale in a souped-up sports car, with hair extensions, a St Tropez tan and nail extensions Coleen McLoughlin would die for.

With ultra-short skirts and more bling than J-Lo, she claims she's made a fortune from modelling.

Adele said: "Kelly has a very different look - she is a rip-off of a Victoria Beckham wannabe. She has money, the clothes, and claims she has the success."

For Adele, the offer of her old role back on Emmerdale couldn't have come at a better time.

She admits: "After I left in 2000 there wasn't much work about. At the time I was approached to come back the only work I was being offered was reality TV shows and I can't think of anything worse than being filmed 24 hours a day.

"When the show's producers approached me I said I'd only come back if they promised not to make her nice.

"But I can safely say she is still as nasty as ever!"

Adele had to make a big sacrifice for her move back to Leeds for filming - leaving behind her boyfriend of the last eight-and -a-half months, Blue singer Antony Costa.

The pair moved into Antony's Hertfordshire home a few months after meeting, and for Adele it's definitely true love.

"I'm living in a hotel at the moment and as soon as filming finishes I'm straight down the M1 to see him.

"I don't speak to him that often," she jokes, "only in my tea break, my lunch break, breaks in filming, oh, and in the mornings and evenings.

"It's difficult getting used to not having him around. He is my best friend as well as my boyfriend."

Antony, 23, was a fixture on the London party scene until Adele came along.

Now the pair prefer to sit in, watch videos and cook for each other. "We're dead boring!" Adele laughs.

She started filming last week in a storyline which sees Kelly summoned to her half-brother Scott's bedside by sister Donna (Verity Rushworth).

Scott (Ben Freeman) has been injured by Zoe Tate (Leah Bracknell) who attacks him in what she says is self-defence after she threatens to take away their daughter Jean.

Adele said: "As usual with Kelly, things are never what they seem. She says she's been a model and lives in a penthouse.

"But she is such a bull*******. Even her sister Donna soon gets sick of her."

Kelly wastes no time getting her hooks into Scott's new girlfriend, Dawn.

Adele said: "Of course there's a history between Scott and Kelly (the pair slept together) and she can't stand the fact he has a lovely, pretty girlfriend.

"I have some great bitchy scenes at my half-brother's bedside. It's hate at first sight. Kelly is just not very likeable!"

One of the reasons Adele left the soap was because she was getting hassled in night-clubs by people who thought she WAS Kelly.

On one occasion she was surrounded by a group of girls who heckled her and called her a bitch.

"That was a problem for me. But my friends will be the first to say I am nothing like Kelly.

"I wouldn't dream of thinking half the things she comes out with, let alone saying them.

"I can't believe the characters don't slap her. But it is great to get your teeth into a role like that."

Despite being a veteran in soaps - Kelly first hit our screens in August 1993 - Adele was nervous on her first day back. "One of my first scenes was with Zoe (Leah), which was great because I knew her.

"It's been quite strange because a lot of the crew are the same but most of the cast is different.

"But it's easier than being new - people remember Kelly."

And Adele reckons that now Kelly's back she could give the other soap bitches a run for their money.

"She could take on Tracy Barlow from Corrie any day.

"It would be great to win the soap award for best bitch next year."

She can't wait to work with Patsy Kensit.

"She's great! Can you imagine if Sadie (Patsy's character) and Kelly got together - what havoc they would cause. It would be like the Queen bitch and the mini bitch."

Adele says she and Antony have no plans to wed yet - and their separations are about to become more severe as Blue start their European tour.

But Adele said: "It can be nice, too - I get to look forward to seeing him. And I don't want him to get sick of me!"
