A shocker as Sam gets the needle on TV; News RADICAL TREATMENT TO BANISH WRINKLES.

Byline: ANDY RICHARDSON News Reporter andy.richardson@trinitymirror.com

SAM Barton, Britain's self proclaimed vainest man, has spoken of his ordeal... after being electrocuted live on TV!

The controversial Brummie had 1,300 needles injected into his face when he starred in Shock Docs Body Freaks: Make Me A Perfect 10 on Channel 5. "The treatment hurt," complained Sam. "I looked like I had been in a fight afterwards."

The 24-year-old, from Four Oaks, Sutton Coldfield, underwent Dermapen treatment, which treats fine lines and wrinkles, tightens and rejuvenates skin and combats stretch marks. The TV camera crews also followed him on a night out in Birmingham, where he was seen shelling out PS3,500 on expensive champagne.

The documentary follows people hooked on risky cosmetic procedures in the pursuit of body perfection.

Sam said: "The treatment is designed to manipulate the skin to think it has been beaten up to raise natural collagen to the skin.

"I then received electric current treatment while I wore a mask. But that's the extreme measures I will go to, to look as good as possible. I am Britain's vainest man - I make no bones about that. To look as good as I do I have to put my body through it.

"For as long as I can remember I have been uncomfortable with the way I look and wanted to change it.."

Sam first hit the headlines after revealing he had a free nose job on the NHS. He later applied for free Botox treatment for life to combat the anxiety that his 'new-found fame' had provoked.

Sam has spent PS20,000 on his teeth, PS5,000 on Botox and PS10,400 on a nose job. He later revealed he was declaring himself bankrupt after racking up debts of PS35,000 living a champagne lifestyle, blowing up to PS2,000 on a night out.
