Gail Porter would never recreate naked FHM snap ‘as no one wants to see that’

Gail Porter has declared she won't ever strip off again to re-create her controversial FHM snap.

Back in 1999, Gail was projected onto the Houses of Parliament nude and without her consent.

The lads' mag and Gail teamed up for a photo shoot – but never did she think it would be part of such a big marketing ploy for their 'sexiest women' campaign.

Gail was so distraught at the time that she couldn't even "leave the house" after finding out about the publicity stunt.

But years later, at 39, she re-created the iconic snap and stripped off to take back her power.

The snaps were taken by Now magazine and Gail said she was far "more comfortable" in her skin than at the time of the original snap which was taken when she was 28 years old.

But would she do it again?

Gail exclusively told us: "Never in a million years. No, never, no."

She added: "No one wants to see that, trust me, no one wants to see that. I think that's been done now, so we can just move on from that."

The TV host spoke to us while promoting Virgin O2 Media's new free data campaign, which she said would have really benefitted her during her time being homeless.

Gail explained: "To have free data is an absolute lifeline for many people and I think 'wow, I wish I had that when I was homeless'. But I'm so glad it is happening now. I was sitting sometimes in Hampstead Heath on a bench and I just wanted to talk to someone and I couldn't because I had no data."

"I was always on my guard and was a bit nervous and pretty upset with myself. I thought 'I've lost my hair, no one is hiring me for jobs, then I couldn't pay the rent, and then I had nowhere to stay.

"My mum had passed away, my dad was living in a different country and I thought 'who do I ask for help?' I had no idea.

"It got bigger and bigger and I was scared more about how I was going to get myself back on my feet and get a roof on my head for my daughter."

TV personality Gail Porter has partnered with Virgin Media O2 and Good Things Foundation to raise awareness of the National Databank – where the 1000 th Hub has opened, providing free O2 data to people in need.. It comes as a third of Brits say they are only one pay slip away from serious hardship. To find out more, visit
