Peta Louise Todd (/ˈptə/ PEE-tə; born 8 December 1986)[2] is a former English glamour model and Page 3 girl.

Modelling career[edit]

Todd first appeared on The Sun's Page 3 when she was 18 years-old.[3] She took time out of her modelling career in 2006 to have her son Finnbar,[4] but she returned to Page 3 soon after.[5]

Since 2005, Todd has modelled regularly for Body in Mind, including during her first pregnancy.[6]

Charity work[edit]

In 2008, she cycled 400 miles (640 km) in five days, raising more than £3,000 through sponsorship and a further £4,000 by auctioning her bicycle and cycling shorts on the last day of her ride, for the Help for Heroes charity.[7] Todd has also travelled to Afghanistan to boost the morale of the British troops stationed there.[3] She is the charity's official pin-up and patron, and she has completed many challenges for Help For Heroes, including skydives, wingwalks, and bobsleighing, and she completed the 2010 London Marathon in aid of the charity.[7] In 2010, Todd received an award for outstanding contribution to the charity, which included a personal meeting with Prince William.[8]

In 2009, Todd climbed Mount Kilimanjaro along with injured servicemen and women to raise funds for Help For Heroes.[9]

Media work[edit]

Todd appeared on the BBC programme Newsnight in 2010 to discuss the merits of 40 years of Page 3. She has taken part in debates at the Oxford Union and at several other universities, including Durham.[9]

Todd has been a regular radio show contributor, co-hosting the Absolution with Tim Shaw show on Absolute Radio[10] and talkSport's The Sports Bar.[citation needed] She has also appeared on BBC Radio 5 Live to discuss whether the 40th anniversary of Page Three should be celebrated.[11]
