Happy to have you feature on Playboy! Can you give us a bit of a background on your career as a model and where it all started? Thank you for having me! I was first scouted by a model agency in Manchester at a young age. I started as a fashion model before I decided to go into glamour. Over the past 4 years, I’ve been working as a TV presenter on the babe channels, currently, I can be found on Babestation.
What are some of your best career highlights so far? Being on the cover of Playboy is definitely one of them! I’ve been fortunate enough to participate in London fashion week, feature in music videos and travel abroad with my career. I would also consider my time as a lifeguard one of my biggest highlights where I was based at a summer camp in San Francisco. So much fun.
Social media is a very powerful tool, given your massive following, what are some of the challenges you face when it comes to marketing your brand and maintaining a solid following? There’s a lot of competition out there but I try to just be myself. I show personality to my followers, whether that’s the music I’m listening to or what I’m doing on a day-to-day basis. I just do my own thing.
Can you give us a breakdown of a typical day in the life of a glamourous model on set? Straight into hair and makeup before putting in a solid 8-hour graft. At Babestation, we take calls from regulars, welcoming newbies and offer private webcam shows throughout the day.
What are some of the biggest misconceptions people have about what you do? Dumb and uneducated – Having achieved a 2:1 at University, I started a postgraduate job at a top fashion head office. That’s just before I decided to go into glamour modeling. Doing what society expects you to do is one thing, doing what truly makes you happy is another.
Modeling just requires a pretty face – No. It requires hard work, determination, persistence, a good attitude, and a lot of motivation. You’d probably have to have a thick skin too. Gold Diggers – A lot of times, people talk about us as if we’re malicious people just trying to get your money, whether through OnlyFans or webcam platforms. Isn’t that what every business is about? Work is work.
Now we know there are some pretty perks that come with being a beautiful woman, what would say are your favorite ones? *snaps fingers*
Given that you’re a stunning woman who undoubtedly gets a lot of attention, what are some of the nicest things men have done to try and get your attention? Oh, there’s so many! I had a guy that literally stopped traffic to get to the taxi I was in the back of at the time. I did let him take me out after that, just the once. Someone offered to pay for my fuel at the petrol station last week, that was pretty sweet.
What makes you feel absolutely sexy? I feel sexiest when I know I’m on the right path, achieving my goals and doing what makes me happy.
3 things that you can’t go a day without? Spotify! Morning bubble baths and caffeine.
Anything exciting we should be on the lookout for coming through this year from you? I have some exciting international shoots coming up in 2022! Stay tuned…
Where can our readers find out more about you and stay updated with your current events and adventures? I post a lot of what I’m doing on my Instagram. You can also check my monthly TV schedule at Babestation.tv.
Thank you so much for sitting down with us and letting us get to know you! Any last words for our readers out there? Thank you so much Playboy for having me! You know where to find me!
