Her abdominal (peritoneal) lining was used to create her vagina. The modern technique is also used on women who are born without a vaginal canal.

Jessica, who found fame as TV star The Human Ken Doll, explained: ‘I went to this hospital because it is one of the best in the world for transgender people.

‘The peritoneal tissue used is very similar to a vagina as it is elastic and self-lubricates.

‘This modern technique doesn’t demand a lifetime of dilation unlike the other options of penile inversion or using the colon.

She praised the surgeon for being ‘one of the best’ and leaving her without a ‘scar in sight’.

She adds: ‘I feel very drowsy after my surgery but happy that I am finally a woman.

‘I feel great when I look at myself in the mirror. My life is going to be so much better as I feel beautiful now.

‘I will return to London in six weeks, and I can’t wait to go shopping as there was so many outfits, I couldn’t wear due to my penis.

It made me very self-conscious and upset. But now I can finally be myself.’
