ITV show ‘I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here!’ is known for putting its contestants through their paces, but comedienne Crissy Rock has an even bigger trial to face when she leaves the jungle; dental surgery. The cheeky Liverpudlian made viewers chuckle as she announced her ‘choppers’ had their own chopper, while her dentures were being flown back to her after she pulled out of a sky dive, but it hasn’t all been smooth sailing for Crissy in the past few years.
Known for her scouse humour, the 55-year-old has kept her chin up while battling cancer for the second time, beating it shortly before signing up for the jungle reality show. Crissy had previously had several missing teeth replaced with dental implants, but when the cancer struck again, her jaw bone deteriorated to the point where it could no longer support them and they started to fall out.
Her friend, Margi Jones, said that it was loss of bone density that caused the dental implants to fall out, saying; ‘Crissy went through a bad time last year. That’s why she’s got the fake gnashers.’ But it seems the Benidorm star is anxious to have her old smile back, Margi went on to say that she was a ‘brave old bird to have the implants done again.’, pointing out that it wasn’t vanity, ‘she just hates the fact that she’s got false teeth.’
