Strictly judge Shirley Ballas is making a documentary about getting her toxic breast implants removed

SHE stunned Strictly viewers by returning to the show just days after having her breast implants removed.

Now Shirley Ballas is going to bare her soul over her decision in a new documentary.

The Sun revealed in September that the dance show judge was taking the drastic step amid fears the implants could prevent doctors detecting cancer — which both her mum and aunt have battled.

An insider said: “Although it’s been difficult for Shirley, she hopes sharing her experiences might inform women who are either considering having breast implants, or already have them.”

The Strictly star had her boob job in 2002, but Shirley later became concerned when she was told her mammogram scan might not be able to detect cancerous cells behind the implants.

This won’t just be compelling viewing, but potent.

Shirley returned to judge Strictly just days after undergoing the procedure in October.

She later admitted that she was suffering during the iconic dancing series - but had moderated her medication due to her "commitment" to the show.

Before the operation she urged women to think twice before opting for surgery: “Do your research about the implants. I did not do mine," she told The Sun.

"I thought if I put them in I’d look better and my husband would think of me as more desirable.

“I made this choice many years ago not understanding what I was really doing, except telling myself I didn’t look good enough.”

Nadine: Shower time up

NADINE Coyle wants to do away with I’m A Celebrity’s trademark “shower scenes”.

The Girls Aloud star and 2019 campmate helped block cameras while pals showered in the most recent series.

She said: “You can forget yourself and you’re doing your thing because it’s such a natural thing to be in the shower, then you’re like, ‘Oh, that’s right – the cameras! We’re on TV!’  It’s a really odd experience, the shower thing.”

But she admitted Caitlyn Jenner and Kate Garraway looked “unbelievable” in the jungle.

Nadine, whose song All That I Know is available on iTunes and Spotify, added: “There’s something really odd in itself about showering in a rock with drops of water coming down!

“But what’s really weird is when cameras move around when they see you in the shower. You’re like, ‘Come off it, leave us alone, please’.”

The most recent series struggled to match the ratings of earlier outings and was branded boring by some.
I’m not convinced anyone tunes in to watch someone famous have a wash.

Fay's new look

COLD Feet’s Jenny Gifford proudly shows off her new pixie crop after fighting cancer.

Fay Ripley’s character had chemotherapy in the series opener and her new do is a far cry from her blonde bob in previous outings.

She is pictured looking thrilled at her brunette dye job, which she is seen touching as she shows it off to her friends and family.

Fans have praised Fay’s emotional turn for the storyline, with one saying: “I’m in tears after watching you sobbing in the hospital car park, such a moving scene.”

Fay said: “I’m so hugely relieved that I don’t appear to have let people down. That was the very thing I was most nervous about.”


Dancing On Ice’s Perri Kiely claims he can’t find love because everyone thinks of him as the kid from Diversity.

He said: “When Diversity won Britain’s Got Talent, I was really young. In people’s heads, I’m trapped in that bubble.”

Sal's gay fair play

LAST Tango In Halifax creator Sally Wainwright has defended her decision to kill off lesbian character Kate.

For many viewers it confirmed the idea that gay people die first in dramas.

But as the BBC1 series returns on Sunday, Sally said: “When I did that storyline I genuinely didn’t know gay female characters persistently got killed off.”

And she pointed out she also created the series Gentleman Jack, with lesbian main character Anne Lister.

A good point well made.

Acting royalty

MIRIAM Margolyes looks very much at home as Queen Victoria.

She guest-stars on C4’s The Windsors when a painting of Vic comes to life to give William (Hugh Skinner) advice.

Miriam memorably played the monarch in Blackadder’s Christmas Carol back in 1988 and said: “Victoria has always been one of my heroes. I hope she’ll forgive my irreverent portrayal.”
