She presented the Nuts TV live show on six further occasions in February and March 2008, and also presented "Overexposed" – a series on Nuts TV giving hints and tips to the aspiring amateur glamour photographer. Subsequently, she has appeared on MTV channel TMF, presenting in conjunction with Kayleigh Pearson, Pinder and Pearson's Late-Night Love-in; a "countdown of saucy music videos."
In February 2010, Lucy Pinder appeared on BBC Three's "The Real Hustle Undercover", where she pulled a switch on an unsuspecting punter.
Celebrity Big Brother
From 2 January 2009, Pinder appeared in the sixth series of Celebrity Big Brother. She revealed that she is "a bit of a Tory bird" and that 'thick' people irritate her.

Pinder declared her wish to leave the Big Brother house after being driven to distraction by the constant rapping of housemate Coolio.
