S Club 7's Hannah Spearritt says boob job led to most traumatic three years of her life

S Club 7's Hannah Spearritt says boob job led to most traumatic three years of her life

The singer had such a severe reaction after the surgery.

S Club 7’s Hannah Spearritt has revealed a breast augmentation surgery led to the most ‘hellish’ three years of her life.

The 41-year-old singer launched the pop group in 1998 with singers Bradley McIntosh, Jo O'Meara, Jon Lee, Paul Cattermole, Rachel Stevens and Tina Barrett, and spoke about how she thought she was ‘dying’ after having the cosmetic procedure in 2013.

In a recent interview with The Sun, the mum-of-two explained the horrific symptoms she was faced with following the surgery, which she further details in her upcoming documentary, Hannah Spearritt: Me & Breast Implants on ITVBe.

The star revealed she struggled with low-self esteem and fell into a habit of comparing herself to the other women in the band after being featured on magazine covers together.

She told the publication: “We were thrown into all these photoshoots which I never knew would be part of the deal, FHM and all those lads’ mags… It was during this time that things started to grow in my head about how I looked.”

Hannah then opted to have the procedure done in her early thirties after the end of a long-term relationship in a bid to ‘fix’ her self-esteem issues – a move she has now branded as ‘ridiculous’.

Six months after having breast implants inserted, the performer then started to develop symptoms of ‘severe anxiety’, ‘systemic candida’ – which is a ‘serious’ yeast infection that can affect the blood, heart, brain, eyes and bones, according to the CDC – fatigue and ‘depression’.

Hannah revealed: “I felt like I was dying towards the end. But I guess I also knew that I had the implants in, so I did have hope that my body would start healing itself when I got them out – which was the case.”

After completing an S Club reunion tour in 2015, Hannah finally decided it was time to remove the implants and was immediately relieved following the ‘ex-plant’ surgery.

However, Hannah has kept her implants in order to discover what was really inside and how they could have caused her such a severe reaction – and she will reveal the findings in the new documentary.

Hannah has since found solace in her own skin since the removal, something she believes is attributed to getting older.

"I’ve finally accepted who I am, it is something that comes with age. I’m 41 now and I feel good. But it’s also very normal to not feel OK or happy with yourself – and for many years that was the case with me.”
