A mum-of-three who appeared on 10 Years Younger was "unrecognisable" to her daughters after abolishing her "dowdy" appearance with a dramatic makeover.
Gail, 54, who is a farmer from Northumberland, was guessed to be an average age of 64 by the British public when she stepped foot onto the show.
But after a complete transformation on the Channel 5 programme in just 10 days, Gail looked like a brand new woman – sporting an ice blonde pixie haircut, better fitting dentures and a touch of Botox.
Her children were left gobsmacked at the brand new look, and were blown away by their mother's appearance.
Fortunately for Gail, her age was guessed as 49 after the huge change to her appearance.
She told Fabulous magazine : "When you are a mother, your kids don't care how you look because your face is a face they will love – whether you look amazing or you don't.
"I was doing nothing – I just turned into this saggy old cushion on the corner of a saggy old couch. I just sat there, becoming gradually more and more invisible, more and more squashed."
She admitted her self-esteem had dropped and she became completely overwhelmed at what she should and shouldn't have been doing.
"Getting that advice, it's indescribable really," Gail continued.
Show presenter Cherry Healey asked members of the public what they actually thought on Gail's look.
Audience members revealed "she looks a bit dowdy", "her skin looks wrinkly, I can see it's a bit old and saggy", and "I don't think this woman has a lot of style".
Gail told The Sun publication that opinions from strangers didn't matter, as her partner Andrew and daughters Isabella, 19, Georgina, 16, and Lydia, 14 are the only ones who do.
She was left utterly surprised by her own looks, saying it was "really quite remarkable".
Gail said she went from "a face that I didn't really recognise" to "one that I did", and admitted she now feels like "that kick-a** person again".
The proud mother accumulated an expensive blonde hairstyle, a make-up lesson and some Botox.
She also received top of the range dentures after suffering from gum disease at 18, losing all but one of her upper teeth.
The star admitted her dentures were "really bad looking" before the glam makover.
She added: "It's just nice to feel female again."
