Heather Mills McCARTNEY was left disgusted days after having her leg amputated, when an insensitive counsellor informed her she'd have trouble attracting men in the wake of her accident.

The former model, who is married to British rocker Sir Paul McCartney, lost her lower left leg in 1993 when she was hit by a police motorcycle while crossing a London street.

And in the midst of her trauma, the former model was forced to deal with the counsellor's harsh comments.

She says, "She said, 'You know, men won't be as attracted to you as they were before.' I looked at this woman, who was not particularly attractive, and I said, 'I think if my arms and legs were missing, darling, I'd still be more attractive than you!'

"She shouldn't say that to people who have just had an accident. Inner confidence, that's the most important thing."
