American TV star 'DOWNTOWN' JULIE BROWN is suing the makers of US reality show I'm a celebrity, GET ME OUT OF HERE! after suffering scars from a leech bath on the show.
The former MTV presenter agreed to sit in the leech after crew members told her the blood-suckers posed no harm.
But Brown insists in legal papers that she still has bite marks and scars on her skin a year after appearing on the show and she's suing for $500,000 (GBP263,000) in damages.
Show producer BRADY CONNOLLY insists he'll fight the suit, claiming not only do contestants sign legal disclaimers, but participants have to know there's always a risk in competing in reality TV programmes.25/02/2005 20:30
