TikTok regular Miranda Wilson, 28, went viral across social media platforms after she posted a now-deleted clip in which she detailed the treatment she would give 'Stranger Things' star Natalia, 27, as well as sharing an edited image of the results.

In the wake of a furious backlash online, the nurse shared another video in which she called Natalia 'stunning'.

She added that she was just using the actress as an example to highlight the kinds of cosmetic procedures available.

Miranda said: "I just wanted to come on here and  basically clear the air. I did not mean to offend anyone, including Natalia.

"I was simply just offering suggestions, not on what you have to do, just on what the possibilities are. As an advanced injector, that's what we do. We look at faces, we assess and look at the possibilities. Not on what you need to do or what you have to do, they're simply just options," the nurse said. 

She admitted she had had Botox, lip and cheek filler, and a brow lift, captioning her clip: "Hoping to clear the air that I was not suggesting that Natalia NEEDED any of that work, it was just an example.

"Of course, Natalia is absolutely stunning the way she is… that's why she's so successful. Her photo was simply an example. I'm sorry if people took that as being mean or rude, that was not my intent at all."

In the original video, Miranda, who works at HeBe Skin Health in Laguna Beach, said: "Okay guys, let's talk about Natalia Dyer from 'Stranger Things.'

"First of all, she killed it in 'Stranger Things.' So if I were Natalia's injector, this is what I would do."

She believed it would be necessary to start by 'helping slim the face' before adding 'a bit of chin filler just to help fill out her chin.'

She also discussed the actress' eyes.

Natalia, who has played Nancy Wheeler on 'Stranger Things' since it started on Netflix in 2015, and who is dating 28-year-old co-star Charlie Heaton – has admitted she finds the pressures of fame difficult to navigate.

She told The Independent: "As a private person, I just feel like, leave people alone – unless you're talking about their work or what they want to talk about."
