Good Morning Britain uses the WRONG photo when introducing guest Britt Ekland 

There was an awkward blunder on Good Morning Britain on Wednesday as the show used the wrong photo to introduce Britt Ekland.

Presenters Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid were left red-faced when Britt informed them that the young woman pictured alongside her name on the screen was not her.

The photo they used was of another Swedish actress who attended a James Bond premiere, with Britt admitting she has often been confused for her.

Piers started the interview saying: 'We have Britt Ekland, superstar. Whoever this woman is up there in the middle is not Britt Eckland. It's another Swedish actress.'

Britt explained: 'She went to a Bond premiere and they said, this is Britt Ekland. Of course it wasn't me because I wasn't here.'

Susanna asked the film star if she finds it annoying that the other actress is often confused for her but Britt insisted: 'It doesn't bother me. Everyone knows what I look like.'    

During the chat, Britt revealed she stopped having cosmetic surgery because she realised it wasn't going to help her get better acting roles or make her 'look better'.

The actress admitted she first had cosmetic work done in her fifties when she went to a doctor to have her lips plumped and later had her ears pinned back.

She said: 'It's not going to give me more roles to make me look better. This is who I am and people have to accept it. I've accepted it, you accept it!'

Britt made an appointment with a Paris-based doctor with a consultancy on Harley Street to have her lips plumed.

Instead of the moderate treatment she expected, the doctor made multiple injections all around the rim of Britt's lips with Articol, which he said was a ‘new dental material’.

Wendy Lewis, an international consultant in cosmetic surgery, told the Daily Mail that Articol is a bovine collagen that was briefly in vogue as a filler and lip plumper in the Nineties.

A first-generation cosmetic treatment, its use is now regarded as risky. It is rarely, if ever, used in the UK and it was never approved for use in the U.S. ‘The effects are permanent. Today, most doctors don’t want to use it,' she said.

To her horror, Britt discovered that her newly enlarged pout was almost impossible to reverse.

For 20 years, the model underwent ‘excruciatingly painful’ corticosteroid injections in a bid to ‘melt’ the Articol. 

Britt later went to another doctor to 'take it all out' and admitted during an episode of Loose Women that the procedures were a terrible mistake.

She said: 'It destroyed my looks and ruined my face. It was the biggest mistake of my life. 

'When I look at photographs of myself before I had it done, I looked very good. I can see that now, but I couldn’t see it at the time.'
