Paula Hamilton loves being naked and "admiring" her body.

The 52-year-old former British model has posed nude for a new photoshoot with Closer magazine, and feels better than ever about her appearance. Paula explained in the accompanying interview she was raised to feel comfortable with her naked form.

"I love being naked and admiring my body," she revealed. "I grew up without any clothes on. It only gets annoying when you fall on to an ants' nest!"

Paula says the secret to her stunning figure is following a healthy diet and regularly exercising. The star enjoys daily yoga sessions and has boasted about her "amazing" flexibility.

"I discovered yoga six years ago and it's given me the body of a teenager," she explained. "I practise yoga and meditation for 20 minutes in the morning and 20 minutes at night and it makes me feel so toned and energetic. I have amazing flexibility and use trees to perfect my acrobatic poses. I tell people that a baby monkey first taught me how to do it!"

Paula recently appeared on the UK TV show Celebrity Big Brother. She admits the experience was difficult for her, and she is disappointed to have lost so much weight during her time on the show.

"I think being on live TV made me forget about eating a balanced diet and I burnt off a lot through nervous energy," she added. "Since leaving the house, I've put on 14 pounds by stuffing my face with cottage pie and lasagne, but I want to get back to my normal size.

"I hated seeing my ribs sticking out. I don't want to be super-skinny. I want a butt like J-Lo's... I've turned my life around and nothing's going to stop me making my comeback."

Paula also spoke about having cosmetic surgery. The star had work done to enhance her breasts a few years ago, and is thrilled she decided to go under the surgeon's knife.

"I'll never regret having a boob job - I love them so much. When I go on a beach holiday, I make two holes in the sand for them to rest in," she smiled.
