Gail Porter says surgery was life-changing after hating ‘ridiculous’ 28JJ boobs

Gail Porter has opened up about the results of her breast surgery after reducing her 28JJ chest.

The Scottish TV presenter spoke exclusively to the Daily Star about her reduction and said it was "life-changing."

The Celebrity Big Brother star, 52, explained: "I was working out all the time and I was small framed but I couldn't seem to reduce my breast size.

"My back was aching, I was about eight stone and my breast size was 28JJ, it was a bit ridiculous. My friends even called me 28Js later.

"I decided to get them reduced and I must admit what a difference it made, going running, going to the gym, everything just got better – but it was painful and wasn't pleasant."

Gail opted for the surgery in 2016 and reduced her chest to a C cup, saying she's much happier now for it.

The bubbly star spoke to us as she promoted Virgin O2 Media's new free data campaign.

During the time when she was left homeless, Gail says she wished she was able to access free data due to feeling "incredibly lonely" when rough-sleeping.

Gail said: "To have free data is an absolute lifeline for many people and I think 'wow, I wish I had that when I was homeless'. But I'm so glad it is happening now. I was sitting sometimes in Hampstead Heath on a bench and I just wanted to talk to someone and I couldn't because I had no data."

"I was always on my guard and was a bit nervous and pretty upset with myself. I thought 'I've lost my hair, no one is hiring me for jobs, then I couldn't pay the rent, and then I had nowhere to stay.

"My mum had passed away, my dad was living in a different country and I thought 'who do I ask for help?' I had no idea.

"It got bigger and bigger and I was scared more about how I was going to get myself back on my feet and get a roof on my head for my daughter."

V personality Gail Porter has partnered with Virgin Media O2 and Good Things Foundation to raise awareness of the National Databank – where the 1000 th Hub has opened, providing free O2 data to people in need.. It comes as a third of Brits say they are only one pay slip away from serious hardship. To find out more, visit
