A woman who has dubbed herself Scouse Pammie due to her love for Pamela Anderson has revealed how despite spending £20,000 on surgery including breast implants, teeth whitening and fillers, she still needs regular Botox to imitate the former Baywatch star.
Carolyn Anderson, 31, from Liverpool, has spent the last 16 years on a mission to emulate her idol, and in the past has raised eyebrows over claims that she is an improvement on the star.
The model and entertainer is currently appearing in a series of short films that follow celebrity super fans who will stop at nothing to look just like their idols.

‘Scouse Pammie’ Carolyn Anderson, 31, has spent more than £20,000 emulating the Baywatch actress, but still undergoes regular Botox injections and goes as far as saying she is an improvement on the star
‘If you’re replicating someone that’s an icon it’s just an edge or something a bit different about you,’ Carolyn explained. ‘But if you’re replicating someone that’s been around for, say, two years, what are you replicating?
‘Pamela Anderson is someone that’s revered and she’s a sex symbol for millions. I’m Scouse Pammie, I took on that alias about four years ago.’
In one scene, she is seen getting a beauty spot tattooed onto her face before going for a round of Botox around her eyebrows and forehead.
Carolyn, who gets injections every six months, explains: ‘It makes you look a bit different than just having eyes, a nose and a mouth.
‘Everything she does is fantastic, it’s done to perfection. She is a perfectionist.’
With her long blonde hair, 32DD breasts and slender figure, Carolyn has previously claimed that the 48-year-old actress ought to be flattered to be told she looks like Carolyn.
Carolyn’s quest for surgical perfection has so far seen her have nine breast operations, including several to correct a botched boob job, botox, teeth whitening and lip filler.
‘I grew up with Baywatch and I was
captivated by her [Pamela Anderson’s] look,’ Carolyn explained. ‘She’s like an iconic cartoon
character in human form.’
Her mission to look more like the star began at the age of 14, when she dyed her hair blonde and a throwaway comment from her father kickstarted what would become an enduring obsession.
‘I dyed my hair blonde and he said: “oh
you don’t half look like Pamela Anderson with your hair that colour”,’ she remembered. ‘And from there, a lot of other people seemed to start saying it.’
Pamper time: Carolyn has been dyeing her hair blonde since she was a teenager. When her father made a comment that she looked like the Baywatch star, it marked the beginning of what would be a lifelong obsession
Obsessed: Carolyn was once ‘addicted’ to having a Pammie-style tan and used to get sunbeds up to four times a week. She said it left her skin feeling ‘raw’ and damaged the scar tissue left by her breast implants
Her first surgery swiftly followed, although Carolyn admitted her quest to become the Scouse Pamela Anderson hasn’t always gone smoothly.
‘I had my first boob job was when I was 20 just
to make me feel more confident but unfortunately, it went wrong.
‘I realised after a
couple of months that they weren’t placed right and one started to go hard.’
But instead of seeing the doctor, Carolyn ignored the issue and continued to spend plenty of time on the sunbed – with disastrous consequences.

‘I was addicted to having a Pammie-style tan,’ she confessed. ‘At the height of my sunbed use, I
would be on it four times a week for up to 16 minutes. At times, my skin would feel
For her breasts, already delicate and dotted with scar tissue because of the implants, the excessive sunbed use proved enormously damaging.
‘I started to see abrasions on one side of the breast and the
skin was raw. I could see the implant showing on the outside – it had become badly infected.‘
She continued: ‘I
had complications on my left breast. It was infected from the inside
out so I had to have the implant removed.
Carolyn says: ‘It’s a full time job to keep looking this good. To be this obsessed with one’s appearance would seem extreme but I am willing to do what ever it takes to maintain that character’
‘For three months, I walked around with
only one breast implant. It was very strange to me because it was
something I’d never felt before. It was was very embarrassing the first
time it happened.
‘You don’t want to date someone because you’re
basically walking round with one breast.’
Eventually, the infection spread to the right breast as well and she was forced to have the other implant removed.
had to have an operation to remove it, operation to drain it and operation to put it back in… I
had around eight operations in total.’

But despite the complications, Carolyn was still not satisfied. ‘I’d like to go a size or two up,’ she admitted. ‘Then I’d
be happy to maintain that look.’

to maintain that character.
‘It’s like, I’m the real Pamela Anderson –
that’s what it feels like anyway.’
She added: ‘I’m the world’s best Pamela Anderson lookalike but I’m one better because I’m the Scouse version.‘
