Danniella Westbrook is suing the makers of Celebrity Botched Up Bodies for £750,000. The former EastEnders star was rushed to hospital in August with septicaemia and claims dental implants she had fitted on the show are the cause.
She told The Sun: “I’m suing the makers of ‘Celebrity Botched Up Bodies’ for £750,000 to cover lost earnings. I’ve had sleepless nights and crying about the state my teeth are in. Sometimes you want to go out for dinner and have a great big bit of steak but I can’t do that – I’ll probably bite in to it and [the implant] will be stuck in the meat.”
Meanwhile, the 43-year-old actress revealed three months ago that she had to have all of her gnashers removed after contracting the illness.
She said at the time: “I’ve been in hospital. I’ve had to have all my teeth removed for a blood and bone infection, through no fault of my own. I’m not on drugs and I’m not pregnant … I’m just very poorly with a blood infection.”
