A bikini body to rival women HALF her age: Meet Britain's oldest glamour model

Suzy Monty, Britain's oldest glamour model at the age of 62, shows off her modelling prowess as she poses up a storm

She may be Britain's oldest glamour model, but she's got curves to rival women HALF her age.

Suzy Monty is Britain's oldest glamour model at the age of 62 [SWNS]Suzy Monty has revealed she's still flaunting her bikini body for the camera and in fact is in more demand than ever - at the ripe old age of 62.

Despite modelling throughout her 20s and 30s before taking a break, the Truro, Cornwall native returned after a 20-year hiatus and now has more modelling work than ever before.


Posing up a storm in these pictures, Suzy has revealed she was initially turned down for work as she didn't fit the typical image of a 'granny.'

But soon she found her niche - youthful-looking older women - and now works for a whole host of top modelling magazines and naturist publications.

She revealed: "About six years ago one model agency I approached said that I didn't have the 'granny' look for my age.

"They missed the whole point - a woman looking young for her age.

Suzy Monty says she gets more modelling work now than ever [SWNS]"Thankfully, I have since been taken on my a another model agency which does realise my potential as a younger-looking model.

"I am doing a lot of fashion shoots at the moment and the odd light glamour one."

Suzy, who celebrates her ruby wedding anniversary in September, won first place in a modelling contest aged 10 and went on to start her own agency.

She says she barely wears make-up and sunbathes only in moderation, opting instead for a good facial and body moisturiser to keep her skin soft.

To keep slim Suzy says she eats sensibly and enjoys daily coastal walks with her dog.

She says the secrets to a lengthy modelling career is quite simple - learn to smile and stay grounded.

Suzy said: "Radiate joy and people will smile back, making one's day a happier experience.

The 62-year-old has worked for some top modelling agencies [SWNS]"I honestly think people these days don't smile enough, I smile at everyone, even animals.

"Modelling is my passion. It may look glamorous but actually it is hard work if you want to get to the top of the profession.

"Keeping a level head has helped. Parts of the modelling industry can be a tad egotistical."
