"It's dead fast, too. If you're approved, the money goes straight into your account."

PDBUK, who trade under the name Cash Lady, said in a statement: "Clearly, as a business, we are committed to responsible lending, so it is with sadness that we will not be able to continue using Kerry as the face of Cash Lady.
