Be a confident and curvy model

Have your say

Curvy, confident and charismatic? Step forward.

Award-winning fuller-bust lingerie brand Curvy Kate are scouring the UK for their next curve queen.

Their fourth annual Star in a Bra model competition launches this Thursday through the brand’s Facebook page and encourages D-plus, charismatic and naturally curvy girls to enter for the chance to win an international modelling contract and become the face and bust of the brand for two seasons.

Entrants can go to to create a profile by uploading five images of themselves and a short summary of why they want to win.

The top 10 women – announced on March 5 – will be treated to a professional make over and photo-shoot in London.

A public vote will decide the winner, who gets a modelling contract and a year’s supply of Curvy Kate lingerie.

The brand is stocked in 300 stores including Debenhams and Next.

All right Jackie...

Re-live your youth at a night to celebrate Jackie, the magazine that shaped our teens.

Memories of strawberry lipgloss, snogging behind the bike sheds and planning your wedding to Donny Osmond are likely to be hot topics when the Clumber Park Hotel and Spa hosts Jackie – The Live Show this Friday.

“Everyone who was a teenager during the ’70s remembers Jackie magazine,” says the hotel’s Edward Mobbs.

Songs from the Seventies will be performed by former teen heart-throb Christopher Nott, who performed with the band Snaps and was in Jackie.

A buffet is included in the £29 ticket price. Go to or call 01623 835333 to book.
