“I’ve stripped down into my undies a few times, but whether it counts because it’s been on a lads holiday or because I’ve been extremely drunk I’m not sure! However, in terms of modelling, I usually work with clothing companies so my clothes tend to stay on. It was a new experience to me but wasn’t something that really fazed me. It felt quite natural – I’m also not the most shameful person in the world so things like that don’t bother me too much, I’m always up for doing spontaneous things!
