A former contestant on the German version of reality television programme "Big Brother" has died nine days after her sixth breast operation went wrong, the Bild daily said Friday.

Caroline Wosnitza, whose professional name was "Sexy Cora" and who starred in pornographic movies, went under the knife last week in Hamburg to have 800 grammes (28 ounces) of silicon injected into each breast, Bild reported.

But Wosnitza's heart stopped beating during the operation and the 23-year-old was put into an artificial coma and suffered brain damage, the newspaper said. Prosecutors have launched an investigation, it added.

"Big Brother", which sees contestants put into a house together and filmed around the clock, burst onto the scene around a decade ago on Dutch television and has since been filmed and broadcast in more than 60 countries.

Ebert took part in the German version in 2010.
