Before anyone suggests it - no I'm not a prude and I'm certainly not offended by the sight of a pair of breasts, I'm more offended by what the Page 3 girls represented to young females, particularly when it comes to describing them as 'models'.

I don't care about normcore, metrosexuality, spornosexuality, or even lumbersexuality (yes, now even the bearded, flannel shirt-clad hipster that has his own label). The last label to be put past me was 'dad-core' (suppose that's just normcore taken to a whole new level, right?).

Sarah Potter

It's essentially an odd word of mouth scenario. If your friend were to tell you of a really great skincare product, you'd be more than likely to look into it than if a complete stranger walked up to you and told you. That's what we get with celebrities and models.

Almost as soon as the clock struck midnight on my 40th birthday, I became invisible to the general public. I'm not saying I used to attract lots of attention, but I really think I could walk the streets naked in broad daylight without causing a stir.

Alice Hart-Davis

I know 1-2 per cent of the population in the UK is meant to be redheaded, but it feels like less than that in London. In any gathering of people - in a crowded shop, on a train station concourse - when I stop and look around, there is very rarely anyone else with such a noticeable hair colour.
