Abbey Clancey Would Love To Be A Victoria's Secret Angel

Abbey Clancey admits she’d love to be a Victoria’s Secret Angel as she covers Esquire’s August 2011 issue. The gorgeous Mrs Peter Crouch poses topless with a motorbike in a classic, pin-up inspired shoot photographed by Solve Sundsbo.

In the 27-year-old Liverpudlian’s first shoot since having her daughter, Sophia, she talks to Esquire editor Alex Bilmes about her family life and her modelling career.

But despite these incredible photos, Abbey says being a model hasn’t always come naturally to her. "I was an ugly child. My natural hair is jet black. I used to have it down to my bum.

“I’ve always been a bit of a poser. I was chucked out of ballet lessons for looking in the mirror.”

But what about this potential move to join the elite leggy ranks of the Victoria’s Secret Angels? Abbey doesn’t think she’s nearly good looking enough (something we agree to disagree on), but if she were ever asked, she would jump at the chance.

“I used to say if it happened I’d die happy.” She might not be the only one.
