Steroids turned me into a man!': The female bodybuilder whose drug habit left her with male 'bits' and facial hair

  • Candice Armstrong, 28, has a man's body because of her steroid abuse
  • She says she won't stop taking the drug and thinks it has improved her life
  • Side effects include body hair, acne, and a tiny penis instead of a clitoris
  • Armstrong features in new TLC documentary, Jodie Marsh On... Steroids

Once a slender, pretty blonde, Candice is now a hulking brunette with muscles that wouldn't look out of place on Arnold Schwarzenegger and body hair that sprouts from her back, chest and upper lip.
Candice had no intention of becoming so masculine when she began taking the drug, but says that it's too late for her to stop.

'No, it wasn't my plan,' she tells Marsh in a scene from the documentary. 'You could argue that when I wanted big arms and broad shoulders, a bigger back and small hips, that that was a masculine look but I didn't consciously decide I want to change from a woman into a man.' 
The side effects have been severe. Along with excess body hair and acne, her clitoris has swelled so much, it has become a mini penis.
'That has gone significantly bigger, yes,' she reveals. 'About an inch [long] and it's shaped like a little penis. It looks like a little penis, you can roll back the foreskin...'
Her breasts have also suffered and now hang lifeless from her hugely overdeveloped pectoral muscles.
