Salmon's faked topless snap caught on net

CURVY Zoe Salmon has fallen victim to internet pranksters who posted a FAKE topless snap of her on an unofficial website.

CURVY Zoe Salmon has fallen victim to internet pranksters who posted a FAKE topless snap of her on an unofficial website.

The racy photograph of the Bangor-born Blue Peter beauty appeared before Christmas - but was quickly erased.

In the picture, Zoe (25) seemed to be wearing little more than a smile.

But a friend said last night: "The people who put pictures like this on the net might think it's harmless fun.

"In this case, it was obvious that Zoe's face had been superimposed on another body.

"I doubt if anyone would have been fooled into thinking it was Zoe - but it still would not have been good for her image.

"I'm sure she'll be furious when she learns about this, but people in the public eye, like Zoe, are powerless to do anything about it."

Zoe, who beat Big Brother star Orlaith McAllister to the Miss Northern Ireland title in 1999, has proved a huge hit with viewers despite a bumpy start to her Blue Peter career.

She made her debut a year ago - but her choice of the Red Hand of Ulster as aeroplane livery landed her in hot water.

Supporters were again forced to rally to her defence after a Sunday newspaper branded her recent performance in the Blue Peter Christmas special as "more blue than Peter".

It is not the first occasion that fake snaps of stars have been made public.

Londonderry pop babe Nadine Coyle and Girls Aloud are also regular targets for computer geeks.
