Danniella Westbrook sports new brunette hairdo, but STILL wears a plaster under her nose... amid reports she's suing Celebrity Botched Up Bodies
She's famous for her blonde tresses, but Danniella Westbrook cut a very different figure on Friday as she stepped out with a new brunette hair do.
The ex-EastEnders star headed out for a spa treatment as she was spotted for the first time since it was revealed she issuing the makers of Celebrity Botched Up Bodies, claiming dental implants she had fitted on the show left her with blood poisoning.
Danniella was still wearing a plaster under her nose as she headed into the Enhance Salon in Liverpool where she showed off her rich brunette bob.

The 43-year-old sported a casual padded jacket with the hood pulled up before she headed into the salon where she was seen trying on make-up.
The EastEnders star is said to be asking for for £750,000 - The Sun claims - after she appeared on the Channel 5 show earlier this year to have her teeth treated and another boob job.
A spokesperson told MailOnline: 'Contrary to any speculation, the injury to Danniella Westbrook is caused by the side effects of surgery and is the subject of clinical negligence litigation.
They continued: 'She has instructed solicitors to pursue a claim for damages.'

Channel 5 declined to comment when approached by MailOnline.
Danniella - who was forced to undergo dramatic surgery in 2001 after her nose collapsed following years of drug abuse - sparked concerns when she was seen sporting the mystery bandage.
Her appearance prompted worries that her 2014 relapse had undone the work done by doctors to rebuild her nose 15 years ago, but a representative said at the time it was due to her dental injuries.

They told MailOnline: 'Danniella Westbrook has septicemia caused by dental problems.
'She is very unwell and has been in and out of hospital several times over the last two months.'
Danniella appeared on the cosmetic surgery show in January when she explained that a car crash had left her relying on dentures.

The star asked if her dentures could be removed and replaced by veneers as she claimed her current teeth often left her in tears.
She explained: '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.'

However, the dentist was concerned whether her gums – diseased from a twenty-a-day smoking habit – would be able to support her new teeth and expressed his concerns about the procedure.
Determined to push ahead, Danniella did not want to take no for an answer, saying: 'I personally would like you to take the whole lot out and have a perfect smile'
She then promised that she wouldn't 'smoke them out.'

Just days after the show went to air, Danniella was hospitalised in a shock move that saw her secretly removed from the Celebrity Big Brother house for treatment.
When asked during an awkward press conference task why she kicked off when former housemate Jeremy McConnell's dirty trainers were slipped under her pillow as a joke, she replied: 'I'd just been out to have my veneers done - when that happened.
She added: 'I was worried about infection... I bet you didn't see that.'
