March 11, 2006.
Peta: I'd done the odd bits and pieces but not a lot. I wasn't sure whether I wanted to do it full time or not.
BiM: You became an instant star on Page 3. How did that feel?
Peta: It was a bit strange really, I never expected to be on it let alone have a fan base!
BiM: We can see why you became so popular so fast. Were you always so attractive?
Peta: No I really wasn't. I used to be like a little boy, no figure really short hair and was a real tom boy.
BiM: Where were you born? And when?
Peta: I was born in Nеwhаm Gеnеrаl in London, on the 8th of December 1986.
BiM: Do you have any brothers and sisters?
Peta: I do have a gorgeous little brother called Ruari, who is nearly 11 and great fun.
BiM: When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Peta: I didn't really know, it changed a lot but it definately wasn't a model. It ranged from lawyer to policewoman!
BiM: Were you a wild child or very well behaved as a teenager?
Peta: I was a nightmare when I got up to about 14-16. Then settled down again. I couldn't be told anything by anyone.
BiM: Did you like school or hate it, and why?
Peta: I loved school, I always got on with my teachers but was mischevious as well, but just about always got away with it. I was heavily involved in team sports and the student council side of it. I had such a great laugh!
BiM: What are your family's views on nudity?
Peta: We have always had nudes represented through art around the house and a fairly relaxed attitude has always been instilled through my family to me and my brother, it has never been anything to be embarrassed of.
BiM: What are yours?
Peta: Mine are fairly similar. I think there are varing degrees to how it is to be appreciated and can be such a thing of beauty. It's such a shame that people feel embarrassed by it.
BiM: Did your parents teach you anything important when you were young?
Peta: I would say more then teaching me anything in particular they instilled good values and a sense of self into me. Also manners, they cost nothing but make such a difference!
BiM: What did you think of modeling and Page 3 Girls when you were growing up?
Peta: I don't think I was really to aware of it but I never had any negative thoughts towards it.
BiM: How did you get into Page 3 modeling? Was it always your goal or did it happen by accident?
Peta: Totally by accident. I used to work as a Saturday girl in a barber's sweeping up etc, and one of the customers worked for the Sun and started saying he thought I had something that the agency that supply Page 3 would be interested in, and took me up to meet them and the rest as they say is history! [laughs]
BiM: Have you done any other kinds of modeling?
Peta: I did a little bit when I was really young but didn't persue it. And I've modelled in lots of hairdressinng championships.
BiM: What did you think when you first saw yourself in print or on Page 3?
Peta: I absolutely hated the picture. It made me want to buy every copy so nobody else could see it.
BiM: What kind of reactions to your photos did you get from those around you?
Peta: Shock I suppose because I didn't tell many people I was going to do it. Also everyone was suprised how big my boobs were cause I never really wore revealing clothes.
BiM: Did modeling open any doors for you?
Peta: Yeah loads. And I'vе met some great people through it. And after the baby is born I will be back at work to continue. So hopefully I will have some more opportunities to come.
BiM: We're sure you will. Has there been any down side at all? Have you ever regretted posing nude for any reason?
Peta: No, I have no regrets as I have establised a job I enjoy and it has given me much more confidence in myself.
BiM: Have you formed any friendships with other nude models or Page 3 Girls?
Peta: Yeah I have made some great friends. My closest ones are Keeley, Nic-t and Nikkala. We get on really well and have such a giggle.
BiM: We haven't seen much of you lately, except on Body in Mind because you are pregnant with your first child right now. Have you always wanted a baby?
Peta: Yeah, I am really funny with kids. I've always loved their company and think they are so amazing. People could learn so much from watching children interacting.
BiM: Have you thought of any names for the baby yet? Are you hoping for a boy or a girl?
Peta: I know that we are having a little boy and the names we have so far that are in the running are Finnbar (Finn for short) and Kier. I love them both!
BiM: Do you think having a child will have any effect on your modeling career?
Peta: No, I hope to return all being well with my figure. My fiance and I will share the child care. It will be different I'm sure but only time will tell.
BiM: What are you most proud of so far in your life?
Peta: I don't know, I wouldn't want to put it down to one achievement alone either acedemic or sporting. However, it would probably be the way I have developed as a person through some tough times in my life and helped to provide a stable friend and confidant for my younger brother who I am very close to and immensely proud of!
BiM: Where would you like to be in 10 years and what do you see yourself doing then?
Peta: I really have no specific aim down to a tee, just to be happy and safe within my family and to be still involved with the career I love, modelling, and to have been able to make a successful come back after the birth of my child.
BiM: Besides modeling, what are the most important things in your life right now?
Peta: The most important things to me at the moment are delivering my baby safely and making a good mum and learning with my fiance how to be a successful, supportive, loving family.
Since this interview, Peta has given birth to a healthy baby boy, named Finn.
