Happy to have you featured on FHM! Tell us what are some of the things you did to prepare for this shoot?

So happy to be a part of it with you guys! I recently got a personal trainer who’s really been helping me hit my fitness goals in preparation for the shoot.

You've got an amazing figure and beauty about you. We're keen to know what you would say is your favorite physical feature about yourself and why?

Thank you! Today I’d say my best physical feature is definitely my legs. My younger self would never have answered that, but now I embrace my long extremities and being one of the taller ones in the room.

Being a glamorous model must have its perks. What are some of your most memorable experiences in your career?

The travel aspect of being a model is one I’ll forever cherish. Being able to travel to different countries, exploring different cultures and foods, has always been a nice perk of the job.

What would you say sets you apart?

Getting the low-down on Down's

The older I get, the crankier and more miserable I appear to become. I would like to be able to put this down to old age, yet the reality is that I have sometimes allowed my mindset to perpetuate this notion, since not everyone I know of a similar age is necessarily so. COVID-19 has tested my resolve to its limits and my tendency for being Mister Grumpy has worsened during each successive lockdown. The third, and hopefully final, installment of this wretched episode in modern-day human history has hit me the hardest. Although why? I am privileged to live in a lovely home with a generous garden and have every conceivable piece of modern technology at my fingertips. I am at little risk of going hungry and an escape to the open countryside is within touching distance. And I know that with the vaccination roll-out in full swing a return to a more normal life is agonisingly close. I can metaphorically beat myself over the head with the usual line that I should be grateful for, but this has only a limited effect.

Time To Play The Game

The world of professional wrestling has always been filled with colorful over the top characters, and none more so than the CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment, Vince McMahon. Yet this story is not about the man that turned wrestling into what it is today, but rather the man that will take the company and sports entertainment into the future, Triple H, also known as Hunter Hearst Helmsley, real name Paul Michael Levesque.

Fuck The Research

I am a great advocate of the word Fuck. Its versatility is pretty much limitless. Both a verb and a noun. An expression of elation and disappointment. A call to action and a decision to sit it out. Having been endowed with the rather fanciful title of post-graduate professional researcher at a leading UK University my professional work has been exclusively engaged with investigating matters of criminology and security. Both areas are hugely fascinating but anything you do on a repetitive basis can sometimes become as boring as fuck so I decided to delve a little deeper into the ancestry, application and notoriety of this four-letter word which, as I have advanced in age, has become a constant verbal companion. For example, nowadays I employ my own commentary on the mundane activities of life. For instance, rising from the sofa, “Oh Fuck!”, stretching out in bed, “Fuck yes!” and the multifunctional, “For Fucks sake!” The latter can be conveniently used in text messages in the truncated version ‘FFS!’. Yet before I venture into any critical analysis I would like to explore some anecdotal evidence first. Where did my mastery of this word originate? According to my parents, this wasn’t the first word that I uttered as a baby so there had to be a source, a moment in time that, no doubt, I thought, “Fuck, that’s a good word!” Without the fuck because on that glorious moment of first contact I didn’t know what I now know, if you can follow that fucking logic.
