There are Throwback Thursdays, then there are Kelly Brook Throwback Thursdays.
The British model, actress and TV personality has everyone getting nostalgic over a sizzling 2010 shoot she did in Mauritius.
The reason everyone’s getting pretty hot under the collar is immediately evident: Kelly is completely naked save for a pearl necklace.
“With no clothes to use I gave her a pearl necklace and shot the pictures in 10 minutes as the sun came up.”
“Good times,” Kelly wrote. Who are we to disagree with the woman herself?
Photographer Alan Strutt told the Daily Mail that the iconic images were captured in just 10 minutes and was down to Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull volcano.
“I was shooting Kelly’s calendar in Cape Town and was stranded when the flights were grounded in Europe because of the Icelandic volcano ash,” he said.
“With no hope of a flight from South Africa for two weeks we booked a honeymoon holiday for a week in Mauritius at The One & Only Resort to enable us to get back.”
He continued: “With no clothes to use I gave her a pearl necklace and shot the pictures in 10 minutes as the sun came up. We spent the rest of the week exploring the island by sailboat. As honeymoons go, it was up there with the best, thank you Iceland.”
Outside of scantily clad shots, Brook is returning to TV for Channel 5’s dating panel show It’s Not Me, It’s You.
It’s a stellar small screen line-up, with Eamonn Holmes hosting and Brook joining Geordie Shore’s Vicky Pattison as team captain.
It’s Not Me, It’s You will be hitting our screens on Channel 5 on Thursday, June 23 at 10pm.
