'Happy' Porter recreates naked pose
Gail Porter has recreated the naked pose which catapulted her to stardom 11 years ago.
The glamour girl became a household name when her cheeky pose was beamed on to the Houses of Parliament in 1999 as a publicity stunt for FHM magazine.
Gail, 39, who suffered alopecia and was bald for several years, said she agreed to strip off to show she was finally comfortable in her own skin.
The presenter, whose hair is now growing back, was asked to recreate the famous shot for Now magazine to celebrate her new found confidence.
"I finally feel really happy in my skin, so I thought: 'Why not?'," Gail said.
"I've got a lovely boyfriend who likes me whatever I look like and my daughter Honey is at an age where she just thinks it's funny that Mummy's getting her bum out.
"I'll be 40 next year and this is probably the last chance I'll have to get my backside out in public without getting arrested.
"I'd like to say I still have the same derriere but sadly not. I think it's a little bit wider but I don't think it's doing too badly."
Gail's brave decision to bare all comes after Jamie Lee Curtis celebrated turning 50 by posing topless for the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) magazine.
The actress, who appeared topless in the 1983 film Trading Places, said she wanted to challenge ideas about ageing.
