Yep, after years of slathering herself in biscuit-whiffing creams, lotions and mousses in a bid to achieve the perfect hue (that'll be the highly coveted 'Easyjet' orange), the former tanorexic has now come out against the beauty products.

And the best bit? She thinks fake tans make you look 'a bit footballer's wife'.

Tee and indeed, hee.

"Being overly tanned is very ageing and, dare I say it, a bit footballer's wife," she told Hello! magazine.

"Turning orange is definitely a look from my past," she confessed. "Embrace your natural colour!"

Cue the 'Translucent Celebs' photo features...
