After suffering cruel taunts over her lips, then falling seriously ill after contracting the hospital super-bug MSSA, Ash is finally bouncing back with a new-found confidence.

She tells the Daily Mirror: My obsession with looking young began six years ago when I experimented with fillers to smooth out lined around my mouth.

'My lips seemed to be disappearing into my face. I decided to try a dermal filler and my first procedure went like a dream.

'Two years later, when the fillers had broken down, I returned to the same person for a top-up.

'I trusted her and it didn't occur to me to question what she was doing. That was a mistake I will always reject.

'As everyone knows ,my lips were injected and I suffered an allergic reaction. The media had a field day and I became a figure of fun.'

Ash has decided to expose the hidden dangers of the cosmetic industry and the need for employees to be properly trained and qualified in a new documentary Leslie Ash: Face To Face.

In the documentary, Ash herself is given the opportunity to inject somebody with Botox.

Offering advice to potential cosmetic surgery customers, she explained: 'The beauty industry is unregulated so you must do the legwork.

'There is so much information on the internet, but beware the cowboys and abusers who are part of this multi-million pound business.

'As long as it (the industry) remains unregulated and until the Government sets out some rules, it is not safe.'

After years of negative feelings over her lips, Ash has come to terms with her altered mouth and accepted the way she looks.

She said: 'I have decided it is time to stop hiding. I feel it is time to talk openly about the mistakes I made. I've had some corrective treatment and I feel much happier with how I look and feel about myself now.'
