Ex-model's artificial limb no longer fits

Heather Mills has ordered a new leg for Dancing On Ice.

The former model has lost weight while training for the ITV show.

And now her existing prosthetic limb no longer fits.

‘Off to get a new socket made as limb tissue has shrunk,’ she wrote on Twitter.

Heather, 42, has to maintain a constant weight to ensure her artificial leg fits securely.

‘If you put on or lose five or six pounds and it swells up then it loses the grip and it pistons and bleeds and blisters,’ she told The Sun.

‘Then you’ve got to leave the leg off for a few days and let it heal.’
