IN CASUALTY

Gemma Atkinson has appeared as a contestant on reality TV series such as I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!, Celebrity Weakest Link (with Marcus Patric) in December 2006, Celebrity MasterChef and ITV1's Soapstar Superstar in January 2007. She reached the last four stage of Soapstar Superstar.

Gemma and her family appeared on All Star Family Fortunes on 20 September 2008, competing against Antony Cotton and his family. The Atkinsons did not win the show; however, Gemma was given £1,000 for her chosen charity.

On 12 November 2008, she appeared in Jack Osbourne's ITV2 show Adrenaline Junkie filmed in South Africa. She did a bungee jump, a skydive, a glider flight and swam with great white sharks.


I'M A CELEBRITY

In early 2006, Atkinson underwent breast enlargement surgery, which took her bra size to a 34E. She said in an interview that she lost weight due to a fitness regime and her bust size declined and that the surgery then gave them the original shape they once had.

Since launching her parallel career as a glamour model, Atkinson has appeared in provocative photoshoots in lingerie and swimwear, for men's magazines such as Arena, FHM, Loaded, Maxim, Zoo and Nuts. In October 2006, she appeared in three of the aforementioned magazines in one month, becoming one of the most prolific celebrity glamour models in the UK. She has also released calendars yearly since 2006, with the 2008 and 2009 being shot in Thailand .

Since 2006, she has appeared in FHM's 100 Sexiest Women list, debuting at number 32 in 2006; following her appearance on the cover of FHM, she moved up to 23 in 2007; rising again to 18 in 2008 and falling to 81 in 2009. She ranked number 46 in AskMen.com's 99 Sexiest Women of 2008.


BEFORE AND AFTER


FOR ARENA



Atkinson has undertaken a wide range of promotional work; she was the female face of the 2007 British Grand Prix[23] and worked for the Orange promotion "On Yer Bike London" prior to the Tour De France.

She has also modelled for lingerie brands, including being the face of La Senza and Ultimo's D-G range. She opened Ultimo stores within Debenhams branches in London, Belfast and Glasgow.

Atkinson is launching an event called SKY RIDE alongside Olympic Gold Medallist, Sir Chris Hoy. Its an event in which 10 major bike rides take place in cities across the UK. Gemma will be attending the Manchester ride on Aug 1st 2010.



In September 2007, Atkinson did a 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) charity run for breast cancer awareness.

She embarked upon a 228 kilometres (142 mi) walk along the Great Wall of China in April 2008, as part of a charity event organised by Olivia Newton-John's breast cancer awareness charity. She was joined on her section of the walk by celebrities Marcus Patric and Ant and Dec amongst others. The walk was intended to symbolise the steps cancer patients must take on their road to recovery.

Atkinson visited The Home and Garden Show at Chester Racecourse on 5 June 2008 to unveil the room she designed with furniture store owner Arighi Bianchi which would be suitable for teenagers in conjunction with the Teenage Cancer Trust charity. Her room design later won first prize and she collected a trophy for her efforts. It was created in association with Teenage Cancer Trust (TCT), the Home and Garden Show's official charity, and the design will now be incorporated into the TCT unit at Christie Hospital, Manchester. Atkinson has also been asked to become a full ambassador for the TCT charity.

On 8 January 2009, Atkinson was at Spinningfields in Manchester helping to launch The Great Manchester Run, a 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) run for charity that took place on 17 May 2009. At the launch, she was joined by singer Russell Watson, and actors Anthony Cotton and Britt Ekland. Atkinson ran to raise funds for the New Children's Hospital appeal. She finished the 10k run on 17 May 2009 with a time of 1 hour 6 mins.

In May 2010 Gemma again took part in the Great Manchester Run, she was competing on behalf of Manchester's The Christie hospital. She hoped to beat her time from the previous year's run of 1 hour 6 mins. She ran a time of 57 minutes, beating her 2009 time by 9 minutes.

In May 2011 Gemma again took part in the Great Manchester Run, she was competing on behalf of Manchester's The Christie hospital. She again beat her previous years time. She did the run in 53 minutes.

Gemma has already signed up to take part in the Manchester to Blackpool night time cycle ride on 17 September 2011 in aid of the British Heart Foundation. She says "Iím so excited that the first ever Night Ride cycling event is in my home town of Manchester.

"Heart disease touched my life when I was 17 years old and I lost my dad to heart disease. He was just 52 years old and led a healthy and active life. Iím determined to help raise money and awareness so that others donít have to go through what I have."

You did a film Boogie Woogie recently in which you had to take off most of your clothes? Are you comfortable with removing your clothes in films or modelling? Have boyfriends always been ok with it or have some been jealous?
Has there ever been an embarrassing moment when the person you were working with was aroused?? Shocked

When asked for any stories she could tell us about working on the series Nicole replied...."Wind is a factor for many at Hollyoaks!! That's as much as i'm saying!" Shocked Did you notice that too???
