Brentwood glamour model Jodie Marsh fears she had PIP implants
Brentwood glamour model and body builder Jodie Marsh has said she fears that she may have been given the breast implants at the centre of an international health scare.
Implants made by the now-closed French company Poly Implant Prostheses (PIP) were filled with non-medical grade silicone intended for use in mattresses.
Around 40,000 women in the UK received them.
Jodie told the Reuters news agency: “I don’t know if I’ve got this PIP implant nobody’s been in touch with me, (not) my surgeon, nobody.
“Obviously I’m really worried about it, it’s a big deal.”

She added: “For me my boob job made me feel better but I still have a massive scar on one.
“I had an open wound for a year and that was horrible. I had to have the dressing changed every day. I was basically just sitting at home depressed for a year.”
