Melinda Messenger has had a varied career and has been across television over the last 30 years, from her time as a glamour model, work on Eurotrash to presenting Live from Studio and reality show Cowboy Builders.

She also filmed entertainment documentaries such as Melinda Messenger Hits Hollywood, Melinda’s Big Night In and was also on the second series of Celebrity Big Brother.

Now a mum-of-three, Melinda has also starred on Celebrity First Dates where she met coffee shop owner Chris Harding, but sadly the pair recently split up after eight months of dating.

The Swindon-born favourite didn’t start her career as a glamour model. In fact the starlet took a job as an air stewardess before she managed to get her big break.

But once she was signed to a modelling agency, it was her star-turn in an advertising campaign for a double glazing windows company that brought her into the limelight.

The Daily Star were the first to feature the gorgeous blonde in a centre-page spread in 1997, where she was then poached by others and shot to fame to become one of the most popular Page 3 models in the UK.

Melinda’s career took some twists and turns and the presenter has had varying success with her projects, but as she gears up to turn 50, the bombshell remains one of the most recognised topless models around the country.

The 49-year-old decided to retrain as a psychotherapist and now lives in Berkshire with children Morgan, 20, Flynn, 18 and Evie, 17.

Here are her hottest pictures ever.

Red carpet looks

Melinda’s BAFTA outfits are some of her most drop-dead gorgeous looks for the star yet.

At the 2010 awards ceremony, the former model slipped into a show-stopping gold ballgown adorned in jewels and lace.

The skin-tight outfit brought attention to her incredible cleavage and the star’s voluptuous curves stole the show.

With her hair swept to the side in a glamorous and elegant side ‘do, the presenter’s tresses were curled into a stunning Hollywood glamour style, which finished off the A-List outfit.

The floor-length gown is one of the starlet’s most memorable, featuring a cape detail at the back, which the star teamed with minimal jewellery and a bold red lip.

At the 2008 awards ceremony, Melinda instead opted for a shimmering mermaid blue ballgown, which was completely sleeveless.

This time the star focused on her bust even further as the fabric of the dress pushed her enviable cleavage up so much it appeared ready to escape from the cups.

The star paired her risqué outfit with loose curls and bold make-up, her cheeks featuring a deep blush and the look finished off with a smokey eye.

Brand campaigns

Melinda’s lingerie modelling shoots show off the former glamour model’s stunning body with ease, her shoulder-length blonde waves tousled and showcasing her top-notch bosom in a range of different sets and two-pieces.

Another shot saw the presenter lie down to model a feminine black lace push-up bra and shorts set, this time a huge grin on her face as she flaunted her figure in the fabulous new range.

During an advert for the brand’s Christmas range, Melinda turned the temperature up a notch in stockings and suspenders, completing the sizzling outfit with a full satin red and black corset, which also pushed up her ample bosom.

While not lingerie, Melinda is also remembered for modelling for fabric conditioner brand Lenor’s Go Small with Lenor campaign in 2007.

The presenter could be seen lying down in the glittering sun-soaked sea wearing a patterned golden brown dress and her signature blonde locks adorned with a bright pink flower.

Gazing off into the distance, Melinda gently rolled in the water and began a campaign for the brand that would see them work to focus more on the environment and work towards a sustainable future.

The star also pulled out all the stops to launch her new perfume Delightful in 2008, wearing a peach, yellow and sea green skin-tight strap-dres.

The semi-sheer fabric left little to the imagination and the star was pictured giggling and having fun with her new fragrance.

Melinda doesn’t even need to wear a skimpy outfit to wow her adoring fans.

In one campaign for Chili Tuesdays which saw Uncle Bens, LoveFilm and Barnado’s team up together, the presenter simply wore a fitted white t-shirt that showed off her ample bosom and girl-next-door look as she bit into chillies with a cheeky smile and mixed curry for the occasion.

It’s no wonder the star continued to feature in a myriad of different brand campaigns, as she once revealed the pay for any single job was incredible.

Speaking to Thisismoney.co.uk, she shared: “When I became famous in 1997 I got paid ridiculous amounts for photocalls while endorsing products.

“All I had to do was stand around for an hour being photographed and I'd be paid £20,000. The silliest amount of money I ever earned was when I did an advert for a phone company. It was one day's work – and I got £120,000.”

The star said the phenomenal amounts of cash blew her mind, especially when she’d gone from being in customer services to earning that much in an hour.

Melinda also revealed that 2008 was the best year of her financial life, saying she earned around £400,000.

Sadly the presenter went through hard times in 2010 after a failed business investment went wrong, and she said she suffered a “stressful” time.

TV Shows

Despite some difficulties, Melinda has always managed to get back on her feet and she is still well-known for her appearance on Dancing On Ice in 2009 before the ITV skating competition halted for the first time.

The beloved presenter was thrilled to take part in the show, competing against such celebs as ex-Hollyoaks actress Gemma Bissix, former EastEnders actor Todd Carty, fellow presenter Jeremy Edwards and Loose Women panellist Coleen Nolan.

Melinda donned a variety of teeny tiny skating outfits for the ITV entertainment series, which still features superstar pair Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean on the judging panel today.

In one outfit, the star showed off her toned curves with a deep purple all-in-one leotard dress.

It also featured a criss-cross design round her middle and frills along the skirt, showing off her lean body at any age.

In more recent years, the former model has focused her efforts outside of the TV world, taking candid snaps of her with her children for her Instagram page.

Now often wearing her hair in tight curly ringlets and teaming her look with ever-flawless make-up, the star has barely aged a day.

Melinda also now works as a psychotherapist after retraining in 2010.

Speaking about her revamped life and column with New magazine last year, the star was excited for the future.

"I’ve been through the mill to get to where I am," she told OK! magazine. "Getting to this point has been the hardest but most rewarding thing I’ve ever had to do in my life."

As the star turns 50 she seems happier than ever and she is still absolutely stunning.
