One of Britains oldest glamour models Suzy Monty still looks as good as she did in her 20s.

As an ode to her early modelling days, the now 68-year-old decided to create a photoshoot wearing her bikini from 40 years ago.

Suzy, from Cornwall, hasnt hung up her boots yet either and says shes still inundated with modelling requests from photographers.

Her career began early when she won a catwalk competition aged just ten. She then went on to win Miss Cornwall Bikini and Miss Cornwall Swimwear contests.

Now, 58 years later, she has never looked back. And shes still all-natural, she says – having never dyed her hair or had any surgery.

Suzy works for two modelling agencies as well as doing freelance work and has had work published internationally, including having an entire edition of One of a Kind magazine dedicated to her.

Im very, very busy and there seems to be a big market for mature models at the moment, said Suzy.

Unfortunately, though, her career came to a halt when she had glandular fever.

Then in her early 60s, Suzy was diagnosed with a rare tumour for which she had surgery.

Suzy was inspired to keep going when she saw pictures of Dame Helen Mirren in a bikini.nd She returned to the industry full-time and has had reams of positive feedback.

Ive had messages from ladies over 50 who have said they feel invisible and thanked me for what Ive done, she said.

At the moment, Suzy is working for Australian luxury lingerie brand MySecretDrawer. She credits her physique to eating healthy.

I always eat healthily, she explains. I love cooking myself with fresh ingredients and eat lots of locally caught fish.

I walk my dog for miles every day and have never smoke or drank.

But what people dont realise is that modelling itself is a great pilates workout, holding poses and flexing muscles for hours.

Suzy has no intentions of stopping any time soon.
