Diana Vickers In Her Knickers For FHM
Former talent show hopeful poses in her undies for magazine photoshoot...
FormerDiana Vickers has stripped to her undies for a photoshoot in FHM magazine.
And the 22-year-old, who became famous for her bare feet and jazz hands during her performances, has declared that she "was not an artist" when she was on the ITV talent show five years ago.
She said: "I was 16 – I didn’t know who I was. I wasn’t an artist, I didn’t write my own music, I didn't know what I wanted to be. Now I'm 22 and I know the sort of artist I want to be. And when I perform, I wear shoes!"
And she risked getting struck off Simon Cowell's Christmas card list by suggesting that the show which gave her fame has become a bit stale.
"I think maybe (the show) should go away for a few years and come back again fresh. When you see something too much it's good to step away from it and then come back to it. It makes you appreciate it a bit more."
Despite looking delightful in her photos for FHM, D-Vick admitted that she had been nervous about it.
"Before the shoot, I was really scared about taking my clothes off in front of everyone, but I got into it, and it was really good fun.
"I've been brought up with FHM so it's a real honour to be asked to be on the cover!
"I don't see myself as a sex symbol at all, but I know it's part of my job to be kind of sexy. I just don't really think of myself like that."
The full interview and more pictures appear in this month’s FHM Magazine, on sale now. For a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot visit www.fhm.com/diana
