Toned and in great shape - Jodie Marsh looks like she has the perfect body. But the 33-year-old former glamour model is worrried she might be one of the thousands of women caught up in the PIP boob-job scare. SOUNDBITE: Jodie Marsh, Britsh TV Personality and bodybuilder, saying (English): ''I don't know if I have got these PIP implants, nobody has been in touch with me from the hospital or my surgeon, you know nobody has contacted me, so I now have to contact them, which I am going to do, yes obviously I am really really worried about it, it's a big deal.'' About 300,000 women in 65 countries are estimated to have received the dodgy French implants, which are allegedly made with sub-standard silicone gel, that investigators say increases the risk of rupture. For Jodie, it's not the first time her breast implant surgery has caused her problems. SOUNDBITE: Jodie Marsh, Britsh TV Personality and bodybuilder, saying (English): ''For me my boob job, yes it made me feel better and I love my boobs, but I do have a massive great scar on one so they are still not perfect, and that was a major drama it took a year to heal up, I had an open wound for a year and that was horrific that was I can't even tell you the hole itself was probably that big and it was bleeding and pussing and I had to have the dressings changed everyday and nothing I did would heal it and I was depressed, crying, I couldn't work because of it obviously, I couldn't do anything physical couldn't come to the gym couldn't do anything and was basically sitting at home depressed for a year because of my boob job, so my boob job is a horror story in itself without talking about the PIP implants and everything else.'' A boob horror story she no doubt hoped was behind her and with a new TV show due to air - things couldn't be going better for the celebrity. Lets hope her profile boost is not deflated then, by this latest health scandal. Sarah Mills, Reuters
