Meet ‘Naughty Nina’, the busty Belfast hooker who sells sex to randy Irish men by night – and operates as a bogus Botox nurse by day.

A BBC exposé will today name and shame the horny grandmother whose cosmetic clinic has left a trail of dissatisfied customers in its wake.

Naughty Nina – whose real name is Marie McGinty – runs a beauty firm offering Botox and dermal filler treatments, according to the investigation.

McGinty describes herself as an aesthetics nurse practitioner, nurse prescriber and midwife. But according to the Nursing and Midwifery Council – which regulates both professions in the U.K. – there is no record of her registered with them.

She has failed to respond to repeated requests from the BBC to comment on the claims, which are to be aired today, that she is unqualified.

McGinty runs her Botox service out of a Liverpool clinic, but she is better known to sex-crazed Irish men as Naughty Nina.

The 49-year-old sells no-holds barred sex services from superpimp Peter McCormick’s Escorts Ireland website, where she advertises her 34EE assets.

Her explicit ad states: “Meet the seductive and captivating Nina. She is a 47-year-old escort  who has blonde hair and blue eyes. For the ultimate lay call

Naughty Nina today. Boys make sure you experience the hottest Milf around with the filthiest, dirtiest mind. Nothing you ask of me will shock me.”

Naughty Nina even offers a threesome service with a girlfriend. 

But it is Naughty Nina’s ‘day job’ as a dodgy Botox nurse that has drawn the attention of watchdog radio show BBC 5 Live Investigates.

In 2012, McGinty established Vital Cosmetics Liverpool Limited, which, according to its promotional material, runs clinics throughout the north west of England and north Wales.

She offers ‘skin rejuvenation’ by using anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers. Botox can only be given on prescription following an assessment by a doctor, dentist or nurse prescriber. 

The BBC 5live programme has spoken to one woman who went to McGinty for Botox injections and dermal fillers – and was left with unsightly blemishes and hard lumps around her eyes.

The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous,  says: “It was lumpy, then a few hours later it was almost like blisters. It affected my work, I didn’t leave my flat, I hated looking in the mirror. It looked abnormal, my sister said I looked like a freak.”

In the end, she went to see a cosmetic doctor in Harley Street, Dr Vincent Wong, to get the damage corrected. 

He told the BBC: “With Botox, once it is injected it cannot be removed and if it’s injected into the wrong area it can cause serious damage.

“The person who carried out this work may not have been trained simply because this is a very delicate region and if not done properly may have serious consequences.”

McGinty told clients she was a nurse prescriber, but the Nursing and Midwifery Council has no record of her being registered currently or in the past. The title ‘nurse’ is not protected by law but ‘registered nurse’ and ‘midwife’ are and anyone falsely claiming to be a registered nurse or midwife is breaking the law. 

Although it is not known where McGinty is sourcing the Botox from, the 5 live Investigates programme was able to buy it from a supplier in China, no questions asked. 

Because the Botox is being sourced through unofficial channels, there a risk it could be counterfeit. 

BBC 5Live Investigates reporter Claire Savage was able to buy the supposed Botox for around £50.

Anyone can legally inject fillers so campaign groups like Save Face have tried to set up their own accredited list of 300 registered doctors, dentists and nurses.

“Treatments like fillers have almost become everyday beauty treatments for many people, but, in the wrong hands, they are potentially dangerous procedures,” said its director Ashton Collins.

“Many people we help have been too ashamed or embarrassed to come forward and speak out when a treatment has gone wrong.” 
5 live Investigates also exposes McGinty’s other business interests. 

Her Vital Cosmetics Liverpool Limited mobile number links her to sites where escorts advertise ‘personal services’. The number is linked to a woman who goes by the names of ‘Busty Maria’ and ‘Busty Nina’. Photos show the same woman.

BBC 5 Live Investigates contacted Marie McGinty three times by post and email over a month and she was also telephoned, with no success. 

She said she would provide a statement after she spoke to her solicitor. 

There has been no response and she has since moved from her registered business address.
