Reality TV star Kelly Osbourne needed last minute hair extensions before attending last night's (15FEB06) Brit Awards - because her own hair has fallen out from excessive bleaching.

The 21-year-old daughter of rocker Ozzy Osbourne insists she still prefers the extensions to her original brunette locks - because the well-known saying about blondes is true.

She says, "This is not my real hair. It all fell out because I bleached it too much and I had to get extensions.

"But I love them, and blondes definitely have more fun."
