She said she was "honoured and excited" to be modelling for Glasgow-based entrepreneur Michelle Mone, creator of the range.

She said: "When Michelle asked me to become the new face and body of the brand, I was so honoured and extremely excited.

"I loved working with her and the team. The Ultimo lingerie is gorgeous."
