Strictly Come Dancing judge Shirley Ballas has been open about the cosmetic procedures she has to keep her youthful glow.

Shirley, 57, has said in the past that she’s had Botox and credits vampire facials for her radiant appearance.

The head judge on the BBC One dance show, who is also known as the Queen of Latin, made quite the impression when she joined the show in 2017, and many viewers continued to comment on how amazing she looked each week.

But how does Shirley keep that youthful glow, and what is a vampire facial?

Vampire facial

Speaking to The Sun last year, Shirley revealed she regularly gets vampire facials – a procedure loved by Hollywood actresses and made famous by Kim Kardashian when she shared a selfie of her blood-spattered face.

Shirley told the publication: “They take blood out of your arm, separate the red from the white then re-inject it. All it does is make the skin, the collagen, go up a little bit.”

Injecting platelets into the face tricks the body into thinking there’s been an injury, therefore your production of collagen is increased.

Shirley also said she’s had “a little bit of Botox”, but ruled out speculation she’s had fillers and a facelift, adding to the paper: “Not yet anyway.”

Botox – real name Botulinum toxin – temporarily alters your appearance making lines and wrinkles less obvious.

She also does 90 minutes of yoga a day.
