WE ASKED last week if any gorgeous girls were a match for Hyndburn glamour model Jade Wright, who is in the final of the Playboy UK competition. And bubbly blonde Luanne Thom was the first to come forward.
Luanne, 22, of Sultan Street, Accrington, is a support worker based at the Clayton-le-Moors firm Powergone where she helps people with learning disabilities.
She is no stranger to appearing in the Observer after wowing readers in our Carnival Queen competition in 2005.
Luanne, who lives with her boyfriend of six years, Michael Mulleary, said: "Modelling is something I have always wanted to do."
She describes herself as "loud, bubbly and confident".
l We have another two local lovelies lined up for this feature - and we are on the lookout for more. Just send a tasteful picture to our offices at 103 Blackburn Road, Accrington, or e-mail one to firstname.lastname@example.org along with a few details including your name, age, address, occupation and daytime telephine number. Over-18s only please. AC073508
