Sex-change doctor swops bow ties for string of pearls
Colin Bone used to be known for his collection of 80 bow ties and trademark bowler hat. But since becoming the first Health Service gynaecologist to change gender, Mr Bone -now Miss Celia Macleod - has had to adjust his dress sense. Miss Macleod was pictured for the first time yesterday wearing a stylish patterned outfit and a string of pearls.
Only the glasses - and a wedding ring - remain from Mr Bone's previous incarnation.
The married father of two, medical director of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn, Norfolk, goes back to work on Monday as a woman.
In January this year his hospital colleagues were warned to expect 'significant changes'.
