Eye on prize: Visage to judge Junk Kouture fashion show
TV star Michelle Visage (51) is making a documentary on her decision to have her breast implants removed as she believes they were making her sick for 30 years.
Earlier this year saw the 'RuPaul Drag Race' star going under the knife to have the silicone implants removed after finding out they were exacerbating her Hashimoto's disease.
It is an auto-immune condition which causes the body to attack the thyroid gland. She said the surgery has given her a whole new lease of life.
"I'm doing a documentary at the moment on breast implant illness. It's important because so many women are sick and don't know why," she said.
"I feel so much better now but the detox process takes years."
Also competing on BBC's 'Strictly Come Dancing', she flew into Dublin yesterday to help launch the 10th anniversary of Junk Kouture, which she is judging with Louis Walsh. It is a contest that sees post-primary students creating couture fashion from junk.
Registration is now open.
