Shirley Ballas has opened up on the reason behind her decision to get breast implants.

The 60 year old, who was recently rushed to hospital after breaking her ankle, was married to Texan ballroom dancer Corky between 1985 and 2007 and the pair share a 34 year old son, Mark.

The Strictly Come Dancing star explained that she opted to enhance the size of breasts because of her ex-husband's controlling behaviour as he once said her breasts were "too small".

"He’d say, ‘You’re too fat. What’s that mole on your chin? Your nose is crooked, you need a nose job. Your breasts are too small.’

"I had breast implants done to try to save my marriage. It was the sorriest day of my life."

Last year, the ballroom dancer decided to go under the knife once again to remove the implants after a potentially dangerous capsule had grown suddenly.

Shirley decided to go back down to her natural A cup sized boobs because of the risk of cancer that runs in her family. She later admitted to The Sun: "When I saw my little boobies, I thought, ‘There she is’.

"They’re lovely. They’re all a bit swollen but I’m pleased with the breast lift he gave me. And now I’m in the process of learning to love myself after all those years."

It comes as Shirley was recently tested for coronavirus after developing symptoms of the bug.
