Eurotrash star Lolo dies
Eurotrash star Lolo Ferrari
Lolo Ferrari had 18 breast implant operations
Porn star Lolo Ferrari has died at her home in the south of France aged 30.

Her husband and manager Eric Vigne discovered her body at their house in Grasse on the French Riviera.

In the UK she was best known for her regular appearances on Channel 4's late-night show Eurotrash, presented by Antoine De Caunnes.

The full circumstances of her death are not known, but a preliminary examination by a pathologist appeared to show she died of natural causes, a police source said.

However, she is believed to have suffered from depression.

Her lawyer Serge Pautot said: "She was a wonderful girl. She had no shame about what she did."

Silicone implants

Ms Ferrari was billed as "the woman with the biggest breasts in the world" and had a reputed 71-inch silicone-enhanced bust.

Born Eve Valois, she is said to have undergone 18 operations to create her bust.

She went on to make a number of porn films which helped her land her regular spot on Eurotrash and other European TV shows. She also performed in nightclub shows and was trying to launch a pop career.

A bid to register her name as a fashion label was defeated two years ago by her namesake, the Italian car-maker.

A post mortem is due to be carried out on Monday in Cannes.
