Pig finds love after scrub up.

Byline: By BILL DANIELS

WILMA the pot-bellied pig looked doomed to be a wallflower - till a makeover helped her find a mate.

Staff at the leisure park where Wilma was an attraction felt sorry for her after she had been rejected by a string of boars.

So they decided to give her a full Trinny and Sow-sannah-style overhaul.

Her keeper Sandy Gyorvari said yesterday: "We gave her a body scrub and a trotticure. We also rubbed in pig oil - the hog equivalent of Chanel No5."

With her hooves neatly trimmed, Wilma had a smart red ribbon round her neck as an accessory.

The finishing touches were rose petals sprinkled in her straw and Barry White piped into her sty.

Sandy said: "It did the trick. Within days Wilma was being courted by Ben the boar."

Wilma gave birth to eight Vietnamese potbellied piglets, six girls and two boys on Monday.

She has been receiving cards at her sty in Twinlakes leisure park, Melton Mowbray, Leics.
