KIRSTEN IM­RIE

Midweek Sport - - CLASSIC SPORT - By JUSTIN DUNN justin@sun­daysport.co.uk

SEXY Kirsten Im­rie was the browneyed girl from Scot­land who was cat­a­pulted to the top by her amaz­ing all-nat­u­ral 36C boobs.

Born in 1967, Kirsten was raised in Mus­sel­burgh, East Loth­ian, and af­ter leav­ing school at 16 worked in var­i­ous jobs around Ed­in­burgh be­fore mov­ing to Lon­don to start her glamour mod­el­ling ca­reer.

She started ap­pear­ing in news­pa­pers in Novem­ber 1988, shortly af­ter her 21st birthday and con­tin­ued to ap­pear reg­u­larly un­til Au­gust 1993.

Pre­sen­ter

The 36C-24-34 babe also posed nude for mag­a­zines, in­clud­ing the US edition of

Pent­house which fea­tured her as cover girl for De­cem­ber 1989.

She con­tin­ued to pose for glamour pho­tos through her late 30s, ap­pear­ing in a 2007 edition of May­fair at the age of 39.

Kirsten also worked as a TV pre­sen­ter. In 1995, she fronted newly launched adult chan­nel Tele­vi­sion X and in 1996, L!VE TV re­cruited her as a sports pre­sen­ter.

In the early 2000s, Kirstie ad­mit­ted that she’d got her­self hooked on drink and drugs and in 2001 spent a short time liv­ing rough on Clapham Com­mon, Lon­don.

She sobbed: “Sleep­ing out here scares me to death but all I have in my pocket is £1.52. Dur­ing the good times I was earn­ing £100,000 a year and go­ing out seven nights a week with the other mod­els, mates like Kathy Lloyd, Gail McKenna and He­len Lab­don.

“Then I got hooked on co­caine and booze and ev­ery­thing be­gan to fall apart. No­body would touch me and work just dropped away.”

But with the help of fans and friends she picked her­self back up again – mak­ing it back into the pages of May­fair for that suc­cess­ful 2007 pho­to­shoot.

Now 44, Kirsten’s life is firmly back on track – help­ing with pro­duc­tion on a BBC doc­u­men­tary on road safety due to be screened next month and run­ning her own pet care busi­ness in south east Lon­don.
