‘I’m just grateful that someone wants to see my t*s!’ Kelly Brook, 43, says she’s flattered by demand for topless shots on social media – and insists she never airbrushes her posts
After more than 25-years in the public eye one might assume Kelly Brook is fed up with the demand for topless shots – but she insists the continued interest in her famous curves is a constant source of flattery.
The presenter originally established herself as a model after winning a beauty competition when she was 16 and would quickly become a lads mag favourite with glossy spreads in the likes of Loaded, FHM and GQ.
Now 43-years of age, recently married to French model Jeremy Parisi and a co-host on Heart Radio’s Drive Time show, Kelly’s modelling is usually restricted to Instagram, where she boasts an impressive 1.3million followers.
But she welcomes the continued demand for bikini shots, and insists she never resorts to airbrushing or modifying any of the pictures she shares on social media.
She told The Sun: ‘The only type of messages I get are “Kelly, why are you posting pictures of your garden? We want to see your t*ts!” I get stuff like that, which I just laugh at, but then I’m older.

‘I guess I’m just grateful that someone wants to see my t*ts. When you get past 40, you become more grateful.’
Kelly, who became an ambassador for weight loss milkshake brand SlimFast in 2019, admits to doctoring her social media content in the past, but now promotes a more wholesome image online.
‘I think there was a time when I did do that,’ she said. ‘And I didn’t realise what message that was sending out.
‘And for that I’m much more responsible now and I don’t edit pictures, and I don’t change my body. And I don’t do any of that.’
She added: “When I look at my skinniest time, sometimes there were some of the hardest times in my life. I could have just lost my dad or would have gone through something quite dramatic and have not had an appetite and lost loads away. I wouldn’t want to be that person again.’

Kelly has joined London based rapper and presenter Big Narstie for a new campaign on behalf of SlimFast, eight years after he collapsed while appearing on Celebrity Bake Off – an incident that prompted a major lifestyle change.
She said: ‘When they said that they found a new ambassador, I racking my brain, I was like, “Well, who can it be?”
‘When you’ve been on this weight loss journey, or you’ve been using a product for so long, it can become like you’re doing the same thing all the time and so it’s just about injecting that new bit of energy.
‘I just think it’s so brilliant that you got involved because it just makes it more inclusive, it broadens it out.’
She added: ‘I’ve always said my husband loves SlimFast he’s always drinking SlimFast shakes because of the protein in it, so it’s great that men realise that they can have it as well and they can be a part of it.’
