A 68-year-old woman known as Britain’s oldest glamour model has recreated a sultry photoshoot she did in her 20s – and she even wore the same neon green string bikini.

Suzy Monty, from Truro, Cornwall, has modelled for 58 years, ever since she won a catwalk competition aged 10.

“I won a catwalk competition when I was 10 and in my 20s won Miss Cornwall Bikini and Miss Cornwall Swimwear contests,” she says.

"Then the modelling really took off and I was behind the first fully licensed modelling agency in Cornwall, Devon and Somerset.”

Her successful career later included glamour modelling – she had a whole issue of glamour nude publication One Of A Kind devoted to her. She now works for two modelling agencies and also does freelance work.

Despite never having dyed her hair or undergone cosmetic surgery, the swimwear competition winner still has the same long, dark hair and slim figure of her twenties.

Speaking of the secrets behind her youthful good looks, she said a healthy diet and regular exercise, as well as avoiding smoking and drinking, has helped.

"I always eat healthily. I love cooking myself with fresh ingredients and eat lots of locally caught fish,” she says.

"I walk my dog for miles every day and have never smoke or drank.

"But what people don’t realise is that modelling itself is a great pilates workout, holding poses and flexing muscles for hours.”

So how long will Monty continue modelling?

“Well I’ve been told I’m the UK’s oldest glamour model and a photographer said I’ve got to keep going to 70 at least,” she says.

"If I can keep my strength, health and figure I will keep going.”

She also says her husband has “always supported” her career.

"I can’t thank my husband enough. We’ll be celebrating our 46th wedding anniversary soon and he is always supporting me, chauffeuring me to shoots."
