See the Dead Or Alive star's surgery transformation


Pete Burns never shied away from flaunting his individual style and he had a fascinating face.

Born in the Wirral on 5 August 1959, Pete married hairdresser Lynne Corlett in 1978 before embarking on his music career.


The singer was in the bands Nightmares In Wax and Mystery Girls but eventually found fame with his group Dead Or Alive.

Pete had his first cosmetic surgery procedure on his nose and his group scored a No1 hit with their most famous single You Spin Me Round (Like A Record) in 1984.

After showing off his unique fashion sense in the video, Pete continued to experiment with his look over the years.

In 1995 the outrageous star channelled a gothic vibe with long black hair, smoky eye make-up and pale white skin.

The music star started having injections in his lips in 2000 and by 2002 had had various cosmetic surgery ops to transform his face.

Pete stepped out with a variety of hairdos in the following years and happily mixed things up, often teaming women’s clothing with fancy dress garments.

2006 was a big year for the vocalist – he divorced Lynne, started dating Michael Simpson and entered the Celebrity Big Brother house.

Following his appearance on the show, Pete released a book and also discussed his surgery mishaps in ITV documentary Pete Burns’ Cosmetic Surgery Nightmares.

The following year Pete sued a Harley Street surgeon, who admitted liability in administering injections on his lips from 2000 to 2004, and the singer accepted a £450,000 out-of-court settlement in 2009.

Pete continued to showcase his inimitable style and went to London Fashion Week with piercings all over his face in 2010.

Using brightly coloured wigs to change his ‘do meant Pete never had a dull look.

On 24 October 2016, news broke that Pete had sadly died of cardiac arrest.
