Emma Ledden shys from sexy image...

Irish TV beauty Emma Ledden has turned her back on a career as a sexy model because it's so unglamorous. The sexy 23 year old Dublin star revealed she gave up sexy modeling after posing for a lads magazine in a bikini. During an appearance on BBC Northern Ireland's John Daly show, Emma said: "I've done loads of glamour shoots - but it's not glamorous at all."

"I once stood in the middle of Dawson Street in a bikini and it was far from glamorous. "Loads of presenters do photo shoots with lads magazines but it's very odd. "It doesn't feel very natural when you are standing around in a men's toilet in a bikini which I did. It's not me."

Her bikini photographs have flooded on to a stream of Internet sites with saucy photographs of celebrities. But Emma insisted that a modeling career was not for her even though the money was good. "It's not for me - presenting is the way to go and that's what I love doing best. "Ever since I was young I wanted to work on television and I got my first break on Irish TV. I knew from then this is what I wanted to do."

Emma became an overnight sex symbol two years ago when she landed a top presenter role on MTV Europe. She was picked from thousands around the UK and Ireland who auditioned for the high-profile role. But her biggest break came when she took over from Zoe Ball as the presenter on Saturday morning children's TV show Live and Kicking. But she was dropped after ratings plummeted and she now admits that it didn't work out for her.

"Live and Kicking was excellent, I went from doing 10 minutes of TV on MTV to three hours of live television. "In the end it was a shame because it wasn't working out for anyone. "But they gave me a chance and put me on my feet on mainstream television which was the chance I was waiting for."

Emma celebrates her 23rd birthday on the show and admitted to being a mummy's girl : "I am coming home to Dublin at Christmas to be with my friends and family," she said. "I am a mummy's girl at heart and I always come home at Christmas. I live in London now but I return home whenever I can. I will always be back in Ireland for Christmas."
