London: Scottish television presenter Gail Porter has recreated the naked pose, which had catapulted her to stardom 11 years ago.

Porter, 39, 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.

She suffered from alopecia and was bald for several years, and now that her hair is growing back, she 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?’” the Mirror quoted her as saying.

“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,” she stated.
