Gail Porter revels in extra-special birthday treat

Wednesday March 24, 2010

It was a hair-raising birthday in more ways than one for Gail Porter this week.

After celebrating the start of her 39th year with a family trip to theme park Alton Towers, the former model - who was diagnosed with Alopecia five years ago - took to Twitter to express her delight at a very special gift. Her hair is growing back thick and fast.

"What a present!!!!... I can actually use the hairdressers this year!!!" she wrote.

Chatting to the Scottish Daily Record, she elaborated: "It's unbelievable. It's 95 per cent there.

"For a while, I had a bald patch in the shape of Mickey Mouse on the top of my head, but now that is away - well, one of Mickey's ears has filled in.

"It's come back black but I've just bleached it blonde. I sprayed it blue the other day and have also dyed it silver, gold and pink. "I keep playing with it all the time. It's so exciting!"
