THE One Show viewers were left stunned at the sight of a woman who ripped out her own teeth after struggling to see a dentist during the pandemic.
Fans blasted the BBC show for broadcasting “yanked out teeth” as Danielle told how she’d had to take measures into her own hands when NHS appointments were whittled down amid the coronavirus outbreak in the UK.

Danielle had been hunting for an NHS dentist for five years, but struggled to find new surgeries taking patients on.
She told The One Show how she didn’t have the cash to go private – so resorted to teasing out the dozen gnashers by herself, which included her front teeth.
She told the camera: “The pain just got so bad I had no other choice – I had to remove them.”
Danielle then proceeded to pour her taken-out teeth onto her living room table in a move that astounded viewers.
One took to Twitter to plead to the BBC: “Never show me yanked out teeth again please.”
Another posted: “I’m sorry but the state of her teeth is longer than 5 months.”
One then raged: “OMG this woman is pulling her own teeth out,” as another added: “Just going to say it the thought of having front teeth pulled out is terrifying I don’t no why but it does #TheOneShow.”
Danielle told the show she would call an NHS dentist when she felt her teeth getting loose.
She said: “I would get told the same, we are not taking on NHS patients any more.
“It’s my personality almost taken away because I loved chatting to people and smiling but I’m hiding because I don’t want people to see my mouth.
“I don’t want them to hear me speak.”
She concluded: “I can’t afford to go private so I’m left with nothing. Lost, basically.”
The Sun previously reported how NHS waiting lists are at their “worst for a decade” as the coronavirus pandemic delayed routine treatment for millions.
Meanwhile, a report released this year said the Covid backlog would take five years to clear.
