Klassy! Myleene posts X-rated picture of herself – then deletes it

Fans given an eyeful - albeit briefly!

Myleene Klass has never been shy about showing off her amazing figure – the TV presenter is regularly seen sporting a teeny bikini or the latest range of sexy underwear.

But it seems that going fully nude – with just an Arsenal scarf to maintain her modesty – may have been a step too far.

A picture of Myleene in such a pose, with her face cropped out, appeared on her Instagram account yesterday, but was mysteriously deleted shortly after.

Whether it was a deliberate stunt to tease her followers or a sudden crisis of confidence on the 39-year-old’s part, we may never know. But one thing’s for sure – it set tongues wagging on social media.

One observer tweeted: “#Arsenal fan Myleene Klass does her best to break the internet for her beloved Gunners.”

Another wag – clearly a Gooner themselves – commented: “What a beautiful scarf!”

Myleene has made no secret of her love for the north London team, and recently posted another Instagram photo of her and Little Mix star Perrie Edwards cosying up under a blanket at the Emirates Stadium.

Since rising to prominence in 2001 on the ITV talent show Popstars, where she landed a place in the group Hear’Say, Norfolk-born Myleene has enjoyed a varied career as a solo singer, TV host and reality star.

She’s also dedicated a lot of time to charity work, helping to raise money for ChildLine, Sport Relief and other campaigns.

But it’s undoubtedly her fabulous curves that have given her the most column inches.

When she appeared on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! in 2006, Myleene became a media sensation after she was shown taking a shower in a skimpy white two-piece.

On the back of that, Playboy was reported to have offered her a six-figure sum to appear naked in the magazine.

She turned down that offer, and it seems that she’s still a little bit apprehensive when it comes to showing off her birthday suit.

We can’t for the life of us think why.
