A mum-of-four has become a Playboy glamour model thanks to her divorce.
Glamorous Fiona Hollingsworth, 37, from Eversham, Worcestershire, says she has regained her confidence since becoming single.
After meeting her husband – who Fiona has chosen not to name – and falling in love aged 21, she went on to get married and have four children – something that side-lined her passions for modelling.
However, after seeking a divorce in October 2019, she applied for a swimsuit contest where she was spottedby a scout from Playboy.
Now, Fiona is now showcasing her body in a series of saucy snaps in a bid to show other mums that it is never too late to fulfil your modelling dreams.

Fiona, a former retail assistant said: ‘After my divorce last October I was really motivated to get myself back out there, I applied for Miss Swimsuit in March this year, two weeks before we went in to complete lockdown.
‘That is where I was picked up by a Playboy Playmate scout, and she took my details.
‘Since then I have gained my Playboy Playmate title, which I can keep forever, and I have appeared in Playboy Spain and Playboy Portugal.
‘I am over the moon to be a Playmate, it means so much to me on a whole other level. It opens up so many doors and I am taking everything in my stride.

‘I am now working with a top photographer from the US, who works for FHM, Playboy and Lifestyle Plus. I am really proud of myself and the happiest I have been in a long time.
‘I had my boobs done a couple of times when I was 18 and 21, but since getting back to modelling I have really wanted to maintain and look after myself. So, I have had my boobs redone as well as a nose job.
‘The most recent procedures have cost me about £10,000 in total. I have also had to do lots of shopping to upgrade my wardrobe, especially for my photoshoots.
‘I’ve also spent around £3,000 on fillers and Botox since my divorce in a bid to maintain my looks.
‘I have bought lots of sets of sexy lingerie, silk gowns and skimpy dresses which I absolutely love wearing for my shoots. ‘

Fiona says that her appearance is now more important than ever and that she manages to maintain her youthful looks thanks to regular Botox and fillers.
She added: ‘I have lots of regular beauty treatments done. I have Botox and filler in my lips and cheeks. When funds are allowing, I also have my jaw and chin enhanced with filler too. They keep me feeling fabulous and confident. I spend about £500 every couple of months on my treatments.
‘I was due to take part in Miss World International in Miami this year, but because of Coronavirus restrictions it has been postponed, but I cannot wait to represent England in that contest and see where else my Playmate title will take me.’
Fiona says the breakdown in her marriage wasn’t a surprise last year and that she decided to make a positive out of the situation.

Fiona, who has been crowned Bikini Model of the Year, said that her confidence has skyrocketed since her divorce
She said: ‘I was not in my happy relationship and my kids, who are between the ages of 10 and 4, were growing up. I decided I wanted to do something for me.
‘I am the type of person that when something makes me feel low and in a negative space, it makes me want to come back even stronger.
‘My unhappy relationship boosted me to bounce back and find my love for modelling again. So, I convinced myself to apply for Model of the Year.

Fiona and her four kids who are all under the age of ten. The mother-of-four decided to pursue modelling because her children were no longer babies and she wanted to do something for herself
‘I really had no expectations of doing well in the contest, I had no confidence because I had given birth to four children and was also in an negative relationship, which I knew the break up was pending.
‘I ended up winning Model of the Year. I could not believe it, I was so happy. It really restored my confidence. It spurred me on to apply for the contest again, I won two categories, Model of the year and Bikini Model of the year. It was amazing.’
Fiona is currently having her autobiography written which is set to be published next year.
