Caroline Flack brushes her teeth before every TV appearance


TV presenter Caroline Flack is the face of several ITV2 shows, including I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here NOW! and The Xtra Factor but she has revealed to Star magazine that she still gets nervous about appearing on television and brushes her teeth before every shoot begins. The 34-year-old said that cleaning her teeth seems to help her speak better so she can do a good job.

Speaking in the interview, Caroline said ‘I always brush my teeth before I go on air. I don’t know why. I think I can talk more clearly.’ When asked if this was part of her routine for Xtra Factor, she added that she has always done this to try and improve her performance, saying ‘Oh, I always brushed my teeth before that.’

Caroline might have to hold off on her routine for a short while as her job on The X Factor spin-off show has not been confirmed yet; although she doesn’t seem too concerned about the last minute decision as the shows boss Simon Cowell always leaves things late and she is currently working on a new project called Viral Tap with Matt Richardson. She says ‘We haven’t even had that conversation yet, but it’s like that every year, so it’s nice that we’ve got this project to work on.’

Loose Women’s Andrea McLean talks Botox injections


TV presenter Andrea McLean has revealed in an interview with The Express that her children think she looks angry if she doesn’t get her wrinkles zapped with Botox treatment. Loose Women’s lead presenter decided to try the anti-wrinkle injections after her seven-year-old daughter made comments about her complexion.

Andrea explained that her daughter Amy asked her ‘Why do you look so cross mummy?’ because of her wrinkles and frown lines. The mother-of-two decided to do something about her appearance and opted for Botox injections, although she admitted she was ‘a bit nervous’, adding that ‘Part of me liked it but another part of me was a little bit freaked out.’

After her first experience with the anti-aging treatment, Andrea was asked if she would consider getting more injections to keep wrinkles at bay, she replied ‘It depends. If the kids start saying ‘Mummy, you look really miserable’ then I might go straight down and have it put back in again. I’m in swings and roundabouts with it.’

Andrea currently hosts daytime TV show Loose Women alongside Carol Vorderman, Kaye Adams, and Ruth Langsford and she seems to be loving the regular work, saying ‘I’m still really enjoying it. It’s good fun. Every day is different; you don’t quite know what is going to happen. What I like about it is that it’s never boring.’

Arsenal player suffers dental accident


Arsenal footballer Mikel Arteta suffered tooth loss mid-match this weekend after a first-half collision with George Boyd of Hull City; pitch-side photographers even captured the moment when the players collided and Arteta’s tooth came flying out of the socket.

The two footballers clashed and Arteta caught Boyd’s swinging arm right in the mouth; his front tooth was immediately knocked out and the player was left with a huge space between his front teeth. Hull City’s George Boyd narrowly avoided a caution for the incident despite the photographic evidence of the accident and the subsequent damage to Arteta’s teeth.

Gunners captain Arteta now faces a trip to the dentist to have the tooth replaced but he decided to put dental treatment on hold to help his side secure victory and another three points. He didn’t seem to be suffering too much after the accident and was pleased with his team’s performance. Arsenal are currently sitting firmly in fourth place of the Premier League and Arteta will be hoping that a second meeting with the Hull side will lead to victory next month; the two teams are due to face each other again in the FA Cup final at Wembley on May 17th.

Tulisa doesn’t have a smile for the photographers after leaving dental clinic


Former X-Factor judge Tulisa Contoslavlos might be famous for showing off her selfies on social networking sites but the 25-year-old was not keen to have her picture taken after leaving the dental clinic following treatment for a chipped tooth. The ex-N-Dubz singer refused to flash a smile after her appointment and remained tight-lipped as the photographers asked about her dental treatment. Her people have not commented on how Tulisa damaged the tooth either.

Tulisa has been engineering her comeback for some time now and after recent run-ins with the law she wanted everything to be perfect after damaging her tooth. Following the successful treatment, the singer was in high spirits and tweeted her delight to the Essex clinic that helped her, saying ‘thanks 4 sorting out my chipped tooth 2day! It was not a good look looooool.’

In a bid to get back into the music scene after her stint as a judge on talent show X-Factor, Tulisa has been working hard in the studio since last year, preparing for the release of the follow-up to 2012’s The Female Boss. On Monday, she uploaded a photograph of herself recording vocals, along with the caption, ‘Studio time. #letmebeyourremedy.’

Have ‘Friends’ fallen out over Botox injections?


According to American media sources, BFF’s Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox are feuding over Botox injections after Jen mentioned she was not a fan of the injectable. The actress spoke about her support of natural aging in a recent interview and called Botox ‘terrible’. According to an insider, Courteney was not happy with Jen voicing this opinion, as she has used Botox in the past.

A source close to both actresses said that Courteney is ‘furious’ with her best friend for ‘taking a backhanded slap at her appearance’. According to the insider, Courteney ‘called Jen on her nasty dig’ The discussion turned sour when the We Are The Millers star ‘fired back that Courteney should act her age and stop trying so hard to impress her young boyfriend.’ She also added that ‘women who don’t allow themselves to age naturally and gracefully are pathetic.’

The two women have been friends since their time on hit TV sitcom ‘Friends’ in the late 90’s and Aniston is even Godmother to Courteney’s daughter Coco, whom she shares with ex-husband David Arquette. Over their long friendship the two have had their ups and downs and the inside source does not expect the fight to last indefinitely, adding ‘They’re both sore right now. But knowing Jen and Courteney’s tempestuous history, they’ll kiss and make up eventually.’

Dental therapists to stand in for dentists at check-ups


A new NHS system is undergoing trials to see if waiting lists can be reduced; in order to tackle the growing number of patients who have to wait weeks for an appointment, dental therapists and dental assistants could stand in for dentists. If successful, the system could be rolled out countrywide within two years.

Dental therapists could be drilling and filling patient’s teeth and extracting baby teeth and dental nurses could be brought in to carry out less invasive procedures, such as fluoride varnishes, according to the chief dental officer Barry Cockcroft. Mr Cockcroft spoke to The Mail on Sunday at the British Dental Conference in Manchester, saying ‘A dentist is very highly trained and can carry out complex work such as crowns and bridges. Therapists can do extractions and fillings.’

The pilot for the new scheme introduces a traffic-light rating system, where patients are given a red, green, or amber notice to suggest what sort of condition their dental health is in, indicating what type of treatment is applicable.

Dentists largely welcomed the new ideas and Health Minister Earl Howe was in agreement, comparing it to GP practices; ‘sometimes in GP practices you see a nurse and sometimes a GP. People are used to that.’

However, not all dentists are in favour; Dr Len D’Cruz, of Woodford Dental Car in North-East London, said that ‘it’s halved the number of patients we can see and increased waiting times, which is frustrating for the practice and patients.’

‘Elvis Day’ arranged to raise awareness of mouth cancer


A dental crown made for legendary performer Elvis Presley is being toured across the UK as a dozen dentists are set to take part in ‘Elvis Day’ this May, in order to promote awareness of mouth cancer. The crown was made for Elvis by Memphis dentist Henry J Weiss and the restoration will be on display alongside costumes, music and free mouth cancer screenings for patients. 1,985 people in the UK died from oral cancer in 2010.

The crown was made after Elvis visited the dentist at 10.30pm on August 15th 1977, the day before he passed away at his Graceland home in Memphis, aged 42. The tooth restoration was then bought at auction in February 2012 for $11,000 (about £6,600) by a Canadian dentist who collects celebrity teeth. Dr Michael Zuk has also been making headlines recently as he claimed to be considering cloning singer John Lennon from DNA taken from a wisdom tooth that he also purchased at auction, saying that the clone ‘could be looked at as my son’.

This famous Beatles tooth was also sent to 16 different dental clinics in the UK as part of a similar campaign back in 2012. The tooth was put into a pendant and it toured the surgeries to raise awareness of dental problems, including oral cancers.

Kylie Jenner hits back at Botox claims


The youngest of the Kardashian clan, Kylie Jenner, has hit back at online claims that she has had Botox injections, saying that the suggestions were ‘kinda insulting’ and hurtful. The Keeping Up With The Kardashian reality star posted several Twitter rants saying that the rumours were untrue and adding that ‘just in case anyone forgot… I’m 16’ to prove her point.

Kylie’s friends quickly jumped to her defence on social media sites, saying that the 16-year-old looks different due to facial changes that may have taken part during puberty, rather than going under the knife to surgically enhance her looks. Long-time friend Jordon Woods posted ‘Puberty is a beautiful thing.’ And model Haily Baldwin, daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin, added that ‘they just don’t wanna believe people can be naturally beautiful.’

As well as Botox injections the Australian OK! Magazine suggested earlier this month that the young reality regular has had several surgical procedures, including a nose job, lip fillers, and Botox injections. A representative for Kylie told MailOnline ‘that’s so ridiculous and not true.’

Kylie’s sisters and mother are no strangers to this situation either; the Kardashian ladies are under regular scrutiny for their appearance, including suspected surgery on Kim’s nose, breasts, and her famously large behind.

Dentist wants to clone John Lennon from tooth DNA


A Canadian dentist who bought the extracted wisdom tooth of former Beatle John Lennon is hoping to extract enough DNA from the molar to clone the singer.

Dentist Michael Zuk spoke to host Mark Evans for the Channel 4 programme Dead Famous DNA, saying ‘If there is enough DNA to sequence it, it could be basically genetic real estate. My goal is to own John Lennon’s DNA.’ Zuk revealed that he would like to clone the legendary artist and raise him as his son, explaining that ‘he could be looked at as my son but I don’t think I would be the one, you know, owning his property, he would have the rights when he was old enough to make a claim.’

When asked if he would like the clone to become a musician, Zuk answered that he would try to ‘keep him away from drugs and cigarettes’ and joked that providing guitar lessons ‘wouldn’t hurt anyone.’

Dr Zuk did not seem too concerned with the moral or ethical objections to cloning a dead rock star and instead concentrated on the laws surrounding cloning, saying ‘I think I can… depends where you do these things. If it can’t be done in one country you can do these things in another. To have John Lennon’s DNA sequence outside of the family protection, to me… it is worth millions.’

Medical experts warn about mouthwash links with cancer


Research has shown that there is a link between over-use of mouthwash and cancer and researchers are warning of an ‘elevated risk’ if the product is used ‘three or more times a day’.

Europe-wide research suggested that excessive use of mouthwash raises the risk of cancer and the study leader Dr David Conway, of the University of Glasgow, adds that ‘some people who regularly smoke or drink alcohol use mouthwash to hide the smell’ which could increase the risk of oral cancers. The product can be useful if prescribed by a dentist but Dr Conway said that ‘all you need for good oral health is regular brushing with a fluoride toothpaste and flossing, plus regular check-ups by a dentist.’

Alcohol in mouthwash is thought to help cancer-causing substances to penetrate the mouth lining more easily, but the study leader maintained that ‘We did not find any significant increase in risk associated with using mouthwash once or twice a day.’ The reviewers said that the results showed it was reasonable to ‘believe that there is now sufficient evidence to accept the proposition that alcohol-containing mouthwashes contribute to the increased risk of development of oral cancer.’

The study involved 1, 962 patients with mouth or throat cancer and 1,993 people without the disease; 13 universities across nine countries were included in the research. The results are being published in the specialist journal Oral Oncology.
