 Three words that describe you: Warm-hearted, genuine, cheeky.

What is your Mantra? I am grateful for all that I have and I am abundant. Everything starts with being grateful. The more grateful you are the more positive life experiences you’ll attract. There’s a power and a magic to whatever you’re thinking so to be able to harness that and manifest what it is you want is key to a great life.

Were you excited to shoot for Playboy? To do Playboy has always been a pipe dream for me, something I never thought would actually happen! Growing up as a teenager, Playboy was a whole world of wonder to me, Hugh Hefner, the mansion, the parties, the girls, the stories, the glamour and mysteriousness of it all. There was a time that I too, in London, lived that life, the one I was always so intrigued in. Anyway now the cherry on the cake is that I’m a Playboy cover girl myself! That’s a dream to me and still doesn’t feel real.

 What was it like starting out as a model? Well actually I started out as a dancer, then a TV & commercial actress and then fell into reality TV. It was only really after the reality TV that the glamour modelling started so it’s all happened later on in life for me. I shot calendars, I was in the glamour magazines and fully embraced the sexier side of modelling. It was something that just gradually happened and now I’m here, I’m loving it.

Do you feel more like a city person or a country person? I grew up in a small town and have actually returned to the same place now but for years lived in London. I used to thrive on the fast-paced life but now I’m more settled and enjoy the more relaxed, laid back life.

 If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be? I have been to some of the most amazing parts of the world, LA, Vegas, Miami, Hawaii, New York, St Tropez, Paris, Rome the list goes on but actually my favourite city has to be London. I’d live somewhere like Hampstead, a beautiful little scenic place but still a short journey into the hustle-bustle of the city.

 What do you enjoy most about what you do? I was always a girl who knew I wanted more. I’ve always had such a zest for life and what it has to offer. I love new experiences. I love travelling, meeting new, interesting people every day and my ‘job’ has allowed me to do that. I live in the moment and have always loved not know knowing what job is coming up next. It’s exciting to me.

 What is your greatest life achievement thus far? This is without a doubt, becoming a mother. My little boy brings me so much joy and laughter every day. I count my blessings daily that I’ve been lucky enough to become his mummy. He’s very clever, I’m so proud. I want to bring him up to be kind, loving, open-minded and of course a hustler like his mama!

What are you really good at? Being a listener and helping people. I myself have been through many experiences in my life and I feel like now I’m at a point where I can use my own experiences and wisdom to help others. I also like to write. Writing is very therapeutic to me. Maybe writing a book is something I’d like to do next but I won’t plan that I’ll just let it happen when the time is right.

What makes you feel sexy? Dancing. Sexy lingerie. Long red hair. Red lips. Being glamorous. I used to love being able to own a whole room with sexy, sensual moves. I felt mysterious in a way. For me, dancing is one of the sexiest ways to express yourself.

The last thing you’d like your readers to know: Always stay true to yourself and be genuine. It takes courage and a lot of inner strength to go against the crowd and be who you truly are
