Sources close to the model told the tabloids: "The night after having her hair dyed Megan started to feel unwell - she had an itchy throat and her eyes started to swell up.

“But the following morning she felt like she couldn't breathe and her face had swollen beyond recognition. Megan was terrified. She was given treatment by her doctor but when it failed to help she was taken to hospital by ambulance."

Megan is said to feel "shaken up" by the whole experience, but is finally feeling better.

The 25 year old spoke about her ordeal on Instagram once she’d returned home from hospital, saying she’s “never been so scared”.

The day before she was due to fly to LA, doctors told Megan they’d need to call an ambulance after she reacted badly to a hair dye – Megan has recently transformed her blonde locks into dark brown tresses.
