Sophie Ellis Bextor on modelling: 'I can't be bothered anymore'
34-year-old songstress Sophie Ellis Bextor has revealed that she isn't looking to move back into modelling and would rather focus on her music right now.
Speaking to BANG Showbiz about the progression of her music career, the 'Young Blood' hitmaker explained that she's done with stripping off for photoshoots:
"I'm a believer in serendipity, right thing right time. I was happy to be working with Rimmel, I love make-up. I'll have to see where I am later in the year, the only thing I cared about after 'Strictly' was Christmas with my family and it was lovely."
''If you're looking for an underwear model between me and Abbey (Clancy), pick Abbey every time, she looks sensational, don't pick me! I just don't think I'd be arsed and I don't think anyone would ask me - I'll take the compliment, but if they saw me in my underwear they might change their mind."
She also added that being a contestant on 'Strictly Come Dancing' was liberating, although appearing on TV without make-up was unnerving at first: "I think a lot of 'Strictly' was me with no make-up on in the training room. The first time I've been on telly in my tracksuit bottoms with no make-up, it certainly wasn't a step towards glamour in my book. I didn't watch the interviews and I only watched the dancing when I was ready."
