Melinda Messenger joins Charlotte Hawkins, 43, at the Wicked bash

She branched out into a sky-rocketing career in television after starting out as a busty model and Page 3 girl.

And Melinda Messenger, 47, proved her beauty stood the test of time on arrival at the Apollo Victoria Theatre to celebrate 12 years of Wicked, in London on Wednesday. 

The former glamour model and Page 3 girl looked youthful in her canary yellow midi dress which gave the stars at the bash a good sneak peek at her legs.

Melinda enhanced her modelesque good looks with heavy defining touches of make-up and a slick of red lipstick.

Treading the red carpet, the busty TV host displayed her slender hourglass shape in the figure-hugging dress.

A few months ago, the now-47-year-old revealed she regrets getting a breast enhancement in her twenties. 

The TV presenter and former Page 3 girl went from a C cup to a DD cup aged 24 in a bid to ‘feel more like herself’ but now wishes she’d realised she did not need surgery.

In July, Melinda also questioned why breasts hold ‘so much power’ in society during an interview on BBC Radio 5 Live.

The mother-of-three was speaking about young people and body image in the wake of the Love Island finale after the series sparked a row about cosmetic surgery.

Reflecting on her own experiences in the light of Love Island, she recalled: ‘I wasn’t known at the time, I wasn’t doing it for anyone other than myself.

‘It was so personal I didn’t tell anyone. I needed to make an adjustment to feel more like myself. Now me at my age looking back, there’s a bit of me that thinks – I wish I’d recognised I was fine as I was and it wasn’t necessary.

‘But in actual fact, maybe it was a bridge of confidence that I needed. How do breasts have so much power? This is insane.’
