The mum-of-three took part in a glamorous photoshoot alongside Liberty X pop singer Michelle Heaton.

A Scots mum-of-three who was hit by cancer within weeks of her daughter's cancer diagnosis has made her modelling debut at 61.

Titled “Still Me”, the series of images will be hosted on the designer’s website where a collection of dresses are available – 10 per cent of every dress sold over the next year will go to the breast cancer awareness charity. Michelle, 44, was diagnosed 12 years ago with the BRCA2 mutation gene, which meant she had up to an 85% chance of contracting breast cancer at an early age. She went on to have a double mastectomy and later a hysterectomy.

"It was also a beautiful moment when my daughter Mary surprised me by turning up at the Studio. It was great to have her support after all we’ve been through together. It was a very special day. Modelling beside a pop star was a unique experience. Michelle was so friendly and down to earth as she chatted with us about everyday life.
