Big-hearted reality TV star Danielle Lloyd has given almost £60,000 to help buy a life-saving breast cancer scanner.

Pretty blonde Danielle, 24, used the money she received from her appearances on Celebrity Big Brother and The Weakest Link for her gift. Her donations were matched pound for pound by Barclays Bank to buy the scanner. It will now be used to save lives in the Linda McCartney Centre, in Danielle's home city of Liverpool.

The Scouse model was treated at the centre three years ago, after finding a non-malignant lump in her breast.

"The specialists were fantastic and I wanted to do something to help others," she said.

The caring campaigner hasn't finished yet. The pay from her appearance on TV show Celebrity Gladiators later this year will be donated to buy a second machine. And Danielle has set herself a new goal – to raise £1 million for the centre.
