"I kicked it to the kerb and do you know what? The funny thing was I'm not well-endowed, I don't mind not being well-endowed but they had written this back story for Linda where she had been an ex-Page Three girl, right?"

Explaining the plans for the storyline, Kellie continued: "So there was this whole story planned where these pictures were gonna emerge of when Linda had been a Page Three girl from years ago. So I had to have a bust.
