This Morning couple addicted to tanning injections horrified as Phillip Schofield reveals dangers – Manchester Evening News

25 March 2019 MUSIC


A couple addicted to tanning injections had no idea how dangerous they are until Phillip Schofield told them live on This Morning.

Hannah Tittensor, 22, and boyfriend Ben Dunlop, 23, were left shocked when the show’s host delivered the news that the NHS says anyone using Melanotan should “stop immediately for their own safety”.

Hannah said: “I actually wasn’t aware. I didn’t know.”

The pair confessed they were not aware of the dangers of injecting their bodies with the substance, despite Ben being taken to hospital for a bacterial infection caused by something in the tanning product.

After hearing the warning, Hannah said she could ditch the injections and “go back to (fake) tan”.

The couple, from Belfast, started using the injections after ditching “smelly” fake tan in favour of the injections, which they found out about in 2015.

Speaking of how she achieved her dark colour, Hannah said: “We just gradually got there.

“I actually feel like right now we’re actually quite toned down now. We’ve been so much darker.”

On the side effects, she said: “It made me feel quite sick. It’s a cold sensation in your stomach. For a few days then it would go away.”

Hannah admitted that she gets “a lot of hate” for her appearance on social media for using the illegal jabs and sunbeds.

Hannah said: “Online I get a lot of hate for it. Such bad things. Shallow things. I’d be better off killing myself. Such horrible things just for a tan.”

Viewers expressed their shock at the couple’s ignorance over the dangers of using the tanning drug.

One viewer said: “Those young people have been putting untested drugs in their bodies and they were not even aware of how dangerous this was? Flipping heck.” Another added:

“I think people should look how they want to, but the danger they could be doing to their bodies is scary.”

This Morning airs weekdays from 10.30am on ITV.
