Patsy Kensit Spray Tan

Celebrity Big Brother 2015: Patsy Kensit admits she had spray tans in house, saying ‘Everyone has a bit of a rider’

Patsy Kensit admits to CBB 'spray tans'
Patsy Kensit has admitted to spray tans in the Celebrity Big Brother house (Picture: PA)

 

No, your eyes were not deceiving you – Patsy Kensit really did look that sun-kissed during her time in the Celebrity Big brother house, thanks to having secret spray tans while she was there.

Yes, the pop star turned actress – who was given her marching orders from the house in Tuesday night’s eviction vote – has admitted getting the once-weekly tanning sessions as part of her contract for the show.

‘I’ve had two spray tans over three weeks because I look like I’ve got consumption where I go really white because I have yellow in my skin,’ she explained. ‘It’s not a pretty sight.’

However Patsy went on to hint that she hadn’t been the only one getting a few added extras during her time in the house.

‘We all had things that we could do,’ she explained. ‘Some were writing columns, for example…everyone had a little bit of a rider.

‘I wasn’t the only person that had something happen to them.’

Um, could that possibly be a little more than we needed to know?

Cami Li
Patsy described Cami Li as ‘amazing’ (Picture: Rex Features)

Patsy – who was given the boot on Tuesday night ahead of Nadia Sawalha, Cami Li and Katie Hopkins – later described her Celebrity Big Brother experience as ‘the most stressful 21 days of my life’.

She added: ‘‘You can fight with the world every day if you choose to, but I’m a very different person to who I was ten years ago… there were a lot of egos clashing and I didn’t want to go there.

I do have strong opinions but I didn’t go in there to change anyone…the war is over for me now thank God!’

Ex on The Beach: Gaz Beadle flashes TOO much in too-small paper thong during spray tan

Levels of nudity are higher than ever on Tuesday night's edit of the MTV reality show

Ex On The Beach 204 | Kayleigh: "Gaz Will Break You" 
Get More: www.mtv.co.uk/ex

Ex on the Beach is a television series that places a high importance on nudity and flesh-flashing outfits.

But levels of nudity are higher than ever on Tuesday night's edit of the MTV reality show.

In and amongst all the dramz -and there is A LOT - Gaz strips off to go for a spray tan, and flashes TOO MUCH.

Ex on the Beach

Sadly, his paper thong wasn't of adequate size to hold his manhood, and viewers are treated to a blurred eyeful of his man bits.

And Kayleigh can't get enough of it.

Ex on the Beach

Meanwhile, back at the villa, #fingergate breaks loose. It's at gross as it sounds.

Later that day, Rogan and Jess are sent on a date to rekindle their spark. Which goes quite well and the duo end up snoggin' again.

That night, the cast host a full moon party at the villa. Things heat up between Anita and Gaz, but meanwhile things are no better for Adam. Melissa confronts him but he describes her as “a cold hearted ice queen bitch” - the argument intensifies until Kayleigh steps in and shoves Adam away from her friend.

Adam, Melissa, Megan, Anita and Gaz are sent to the beach for a group date.

Gary and Anita continue to get close on the beach (with a lot of smooching in the sea), meanwhile, Melissa and Adam continue their NON-STOP bickering.

Emily and Connor go on a date to a chocolate factory and have a cheeky kiss - which really upsets Adam.

Ex on the Beach

He gathers the lads in a bid to say sorry to the girls through song. Luke says, “Girls dig a rapopology”.

They take centre stage, singing ‘I’m sorry, I’m a p***k’. Luke steals the show with his rap, which goes down a storm with the girls. He even gets a four-way kiss.

It just isn't Adam's day.

The sun rises and the tablet of terror strikes. This time it’s Kayleigh, Adam and Anita who are sent to the beach to welcome the new arrival. A nervous Anita begs Kayleigh not to mention Gaz or Rogan if her ex emerges.

Almost like magic, out comes Joe, Anita’s ex. Anita freezes and looks panic stricken as he walks out of the water

 

Joanne Froggatt Spray Tan

March 9, 2015

Downton Abbey’s Joanne Froggatt On Spray Tanning & Saying ‘I Love You’ to Mr. Bates

WOW. Can we just say it; how gorgeous is Downton Abbey’s Anna (Joanne Froggatt) looking on this particular Monday morning? Last week, with Lady Edith, we photographed an upstairs character in a downstairs situation, and this week we did the opposite. We’re evolving, stepping into a newer more modern age, which is the theme of the show this season, so yeah, we’re pretty on the nose.

Anna may be in a tight spot at the abbey this season, but she was quite relaxed when we shot her in Ladurée’s gorgeous SoHo tearoom. We ate towers of pastry, had tea, gabbed about Mr. Bates, traded looks about Thomas, and held ourselves back from asking to braid Froggatt’s platinum blonde hair (which we never get to see out!). The point is, we can officially say we have another new girl crush. Wow that’s like, three this week already…

From start to finish, what would be your ideal food day?

My ideal food day would be a yogurt and banana smoothie with seeds for breakfast, sushi for lunch, and a kale salad with roasted root vegetables, beetroot, and goat cheese for dinner with some dark chocolate for a treat.

How do you practice beauty from the inside out?

I try to eat healthily. I drink plenty of water and try to drink vegetable juices and/or eat plenty of vegetables. Like most people, I have good days and bad days. If I’m busy or traveling, it’s sometimes hard to eat the right things, but I do feel better when I’m getting lots of vitamins and nutrients in my diet. I go to the gym on average three times a week and if I’m tired, I get an early night. I think we all struggle with the work life balance no matter what the job; the main thing I try and do is to pay attention to what my body needs. If I’m feeling tired, then maybe an early night is more beneficial than forcing myself to go to the gym.

What’s been your most memorable scene to shoot thus far on Downton Abbey and why?

One of the most memorable scenes I’ve shot on Downton was the scene with Mrs. Hughes directly after Anna was attacked by Mr. Green. I felt a huge responsibility to give the most honest performance I could. It was a very sensitive storyline, which I knew viewers would be shocked by, and I wanted to portray the scenes to the best of my ability.

Something surprising about a few of your castmates…

Well, I couldn’t possibly give away my castmate’s secrets! However, many of the cast have other talents as well as acting. Elizabeth McGovern has a band called Sadie and The Hot Heads and people who haven’t seen her sing before are always very surprised to see “Lady Grantham” on stage. Michelle Dockery has a beautiful singing voice, as do Sophie McShera and Lesley Nicol, who have both starred in musicals. And Jim Carter is a brilliant juggler and magician.

Your biggest discovery in playing Anna…

My biggest discovery about playing Anna would be the lack of choice women had in those times.

Did anything surprise you reading the script and coming into this season?

There are so many surprises in the script for this season, but I can’t tell as it would spoil it!

Are you similar to your character? Why or why not?

I always say Anna is the type of person we would all like as a best friend, so I hope I share her loyalty and empathy.

The best advice from Julian Fellowes you’ve ever received…

I think the best advice we all received from Julian was at the very first read through at the start of season one. He said that we are all in charge of our own stories, and in finding the underlying content of the lines. Because of the etiquette of the times and the way in which Julian writes, Anna might be asking Mr. Bates if she can bring him some food, but what she’s really saying is, “I love you.”

Any pre and post shoot routines? What are they?

My pre shoot routine is just to do my homework and concentrate on my lines and any research I may need to do. My post shoot routine is to go and get my nails done, have my hair colored and have a spray tan!

Go to snacks on set….

I take oat cakes or raw nuts and fruit for an on set snack. I do sometimes cave in and have some chocolate though.

Do you like to cook? What are some of your go-to recipes?

I can put a meal together but I’m not a great cook. I do like to eat nutritious meals. I’m always giving my husband weird green juices that I’ve concocted which are “good for him.” I do love making homemade soups too.

Where do you love to travel? What won’t you travel without?

I do love to travel and I’m lucky because I get to travel a lot with work. I love to go to new countries and experience different cultures (and sample the cuisine!). I never travel without sunscreen (even in the snow, the sun can be strong).

What are your favorite cities for food? What restaurants do you like in each?

Some of my favourite cities for food are Sydney; Sydney rock oysters are the best. In Budapest, I went to a lovely Russian restaurant called Arany Kaviar. In Bilbao, Spain I went to a wonderful restaurant called Restaurante Etxanobe. I love Paris, London, New York, and Los Angeles. Nobu in Malibu is the best sushi I’ve ever had.

If you could host a dinner party with any five people living or dead, who would be there? What would you cook?

Marilyn Monroe, Marlon Brando, Winston Churchill, Stephen Fry and John Lennon. I’d get someone else to cook (so it was edible) and if it was a summer evening we’d sit outside.

Kate Middleton Giving Up Beauty Products, Spray Tanning To Keep Baby Healthy During Pregnancy

Kate Middleton Giving Up Beauty Products, Spray Tanning To Keep Baby Healthy During Pregnancy

Kate Middleton is known for her naturally good looks, but as her pregnancy winds down, the Duchess of Cambridge has decided to give up a number of beauty products to keep the baby healthy.

The 33-year-old wife to Prince William has reportedly given up her weekly St. Tropez spray tan treatment, opting instead for the DHA-free Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Bronze, which gives her some glow without the harsh chemicals.

“Kate is very cautious of products and treatments,” a source told Us Weekly. “Baby’s health comes first.”

Kate Middleton has reportedly given up some of her other harsher beauty products, but still kept some other essentials, including rosehip oil.

“Kate continues to use rosehip oil in her daily skincare regiment,” the sources added to Us Weekly. “She loves the effect is has on her skin. [Her mother] Carole [Middleton] is also a fan.”

Duchess Kate may have good reason to be cautious. After suffering severe morning sickness early on in each of her two pregnancies, Kate has continued to run into some scary pregnancy complications. Late last month, she was reportedly rushed to the hospital after suffering “excruciating abdominal pains” and fearing that she could be going into premature labor.

The incident turned out not to be serious, but it still put a good scare into Kate.

As Hollywood Life reported, “Kate was frantic. William wasn’t home, and she was seriously concerned about the pain she was in. She was doubled over in agony, and her immediate fear was for her unborn baby. So she had her aides call emergency services,” a source claimed.

The source added that there were some tense moments for Kate as doctors were trying to find the problem.

“At first they thought she was in labor, but her contractions weren’t regular enough to warrant them preparing for birth,” the source noted. “The contractions aren’t necessary a sign that the baby is coming early, but they can be a red flag, so her doctors have been preparing for an early arrival.”

But Kate Middleton doesn’t have too much time left before she can return to her normal beauty routine. She is due to give birth in just a few weeks

Katie Price Spray Tan

'Woke up faking it!' Katie Price displays the results of her latest spray tan... after GROPING Louise Hazel on new game show

Katie Price has given Instagram followers a glimpse of a rather extensive new spray tan. 

The former glamour model posted the shot of her toned and significantly tanned lower body while lying in bed on Thursday morning.

Sporting a loose grey T-shirt and little else, Katie, 36, reclines on her mattress with her back arched while showing off the results of her latest spray tan – and with it the outline of her lacy underwear.

Captioning the shot, she wrote: ‘Woke up Faking it & ❤ in it with @fakebakeunitedthanks to @VicFakeBake & @SandraMcClumpha for sending @TheTanExpert.’

The new snap comes shorty after Katie made an appearance on fun game show Reality Bites alongside Emma Willis, Ollie Locke, Denise Van Outen and British heptathlon Louise Hazel.

With special guest Hazel - a former contestant on Austria based reality show The Jump - sporting skis and helmet, blindfolded Katie and Denise were required to guess which show she'd appeared on using only their sense of touch. 

At one point Katie playfully grabbed a handful of the Olympian's breast - much to her amusement - before she and Denise correctly guess the answer.

Coming Soon... LVL Lashes!

January 19, 2015
Coming soon to Never Too Lashed, the revolutionary LVL lash treatment!


LVL Lashes

LVL lashes are the alternative to lash extensions. This is a more natural, chic look because it allows you to make the most of what you already have without having to add extensions.
LVL is a lash lifting treatment that is designed to enhance your natural lashes by straighten them rather than curling them. This creates the illusion of longer, thicker lashes.
The treatment take 45 minutes to an hour and lasts up to 6 weeks depending on the length and quality of your natural lashes.

 

Coming Soon... Australian Spray Tan Brands

January 19, 2015
Hi and welcome back to the Never Too Tanned blog.  

I spent January in Australia, home of the spray tan to discover great new brands and be the first to bring them back to the UK.  One spray tan brand was FANTASTIC and will be soon available at our spray tan salon for all our homesick Australian clients as well as clients who are due to go on holiday.  This is because I have found that Australian brands are more designed to work with heavy SPF and sea water.  

To book in your spray tan in London, simply go to the 'contact us' page.

Victoria's Secret Angels Secret Glow (it's a spray tan!)

Yes, it takes hard work to be a Victoria's Secret model, (read all about their grueling pre-show bootcamp here), but the Angels also have a few tricks up their sleeve when it comes to looking good on the runway.

This year, they called in Kim Kardashian's personal tanner to achieve their unworldly bronzed glow - and they reportedly ran his supplies almost dry.

The Daily Mail reports that beautician Jimmy Coco layered three coats of tanner on each model, amounting to a total of 3.5 litres. And at 25 minutes per coat, Coco would have spent approximately 2025 minutes on the job, or 33 hours.

But Coco isn't phased at all - perhaps unsurprisingly, he seems grateful for the job of grooming 27 of the most beautiful models in the world, a role he says was "accidentally" given to him by former Angel Miranda Kerr.

"The VS Fashion Show came to Los Angeles in 2006," Coco explained. "I lived a block away from [then] Kodak Theater where the show was happening. I waited in the hotel lobby and introduced myself to Miranda Kerr as she walked by, and offered her a spray tan.

"Soon, all of the Angels were asking for a tan and I have been hired to be Victoria's Secret Fashion Show Tan Man ever since."

Yesterday's show certainly didn't skimp on the production side of things either, with the Telegraph UK reporting that it costs around $12 million per year to create the Victoria's Secret show.

"Since it started 11 years ago, the budget for the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show has grown considerably from $120,000 to today's bank-breaking $12 million," reported the paper.

Nowadays, the Victoria's Secret contract is so highly regarded that the brand regularly has to turn down requests by high-profile celebrities "desperate" to be an honorary Angel.

"Victoria's Secret is one of the most renowned and respected contracts a girl can pick up," said a New Zealand model agent. "It is one of the few jobs in modeling along with a worldwide Calvin Klein exclusive or a major fragrance or beauty contract that can make you into a superstar overnight."

Self-tan sales surge thanks to Strictly Come Dancing

You've got to love Strictly Come Dancing; from Mark Wright's tear-jerking speeches, to Caroline Flack's kicks 'n' flicks, this year's show is better than ever. And if you watch it, thinking 'ooh, I need a tan!', you're not alone.

St.Tropez has seen a dramatic 230% increase in sales of their tanning products since the show started - and have dubbed it 'the Strictly effect'.

The stars of Strictly Come Dancing, who this year include pop stars Pixie Lott and Frankie Bridge, Essex babe Mark Wright and TV presenter Caroline Flack, get through an astonishing 10 litres of St.Tropez Classic spray tanning solution during 120 hours (or four and a half days) worth of spray tans each season.

Jules Heptonstall, official tanner on the show, told us: "Strictly Come Dancing is one of those incredible experiences for the celebrities and one by one, they embark on their Strictlification - and that includes their spray tans.

"Pixie Lott had never had a spray tan before, and now she's hooked and thoroughly enjoys her regular weekly tan with me.

"Sunetra didn't realise spray tans can be used on darker skins, after her first spray she instantly saw her complexion evened out and her skin tone lifted - she was heard screaming 'I LOVE IT!'.

"Mark Wright amazingly had never had a spray tan before, I told him he was a shame on Essex, he laughed and in he got - his jaw hit the floor at the results and he couldn't believe how natural it looked.

"Judy Murray also loves her spray tans - we give her light glows to compliment her truly Celtic skin, she's absolutely loving being so glamourous."

When do the celebs squeeze in the tanning appointments? According to Jules, the celebrities (and professionals) spend their Friday afternoons in the spray tanning booth getting ready for Saturday's live show where each will then have their skin 'finished' by Jules and his team of tanning experts who are ready, tanning mitt in hand, to perfect their skin for the cameras.

The backstage tanning team get through a whopping 108 tubes of St.Tropez Skin Illuminator and over 70 bottles of St.Tropez Tan Enhancing Moisturiser keeping the dancers' skin hydrated and glowing under the studio lights.

  • Pixie Lott and Mark Wright were tanning virgins

It seems that fox trot and tango aren't the only things the contestants try for the first time on Strictly Come Dancing.

According to the expert tanning team, who work like a well-oiled machine backstage on the BBC show, lots of the stars tried fake tan for the first time too - and some have become hooked on getting a glow. 

The stars of Strictly Come Dancing, who this year include pop stars Pixie Lott and Frankie Bridge, Essex hunk Mark Wright and TV presenter Caroline Flack, get through an astonishing 10 litres of spray tan solution each season.

Each of the stars will then have their skin ‘finished’ by a team of tanning experts who are ready, tanning mitt in hand, to perfect their skin for the cameras. Although some of this year’s contestants, like Frankie Bridge, have been regular tanners for years - Judy Murray, Pixie Lott, Mark Wright and Sunetra Sarker have all lost their tanning virginity in the Strictly tanning booth.

Contrary to popular belief, for healthy-looking Mark Wright, this was his first experience of fake tan, too.

And as for the biggest tanning addict of Strictly 2014? The crown for this year’s ‘Tanning King’ goes to BBC Radio 1’s Scott Mills, who apparently can’t wait to get in the spray booth each week.

Jules said: 'Scott Mills loves his spray tans, but we’ve had to devise a totally different schedule for him as he misses his slots during rehearsals due to his show. Luckily Scott lives close to me so I can be at his for a treatment at the drop of a hat.'

Since the bronzed and buffed class of Strictly 2014 stepped onto the dance floor in September, the self tanning brand has seen a dramatic 230 per cent increase in sales of their tanning products - dubbed ‘the Strictly effect’. 

Strictly fans across the UK are queuing up at tanning counters in order to recreate the golden skin of their favourite celebrities as they light up the dance floor each weekend.

Mark Wright Loses Spray Tan Virginity!

November 13, 2014

Strictly's Mark Wright: "I lost my spray tan virginity three weeks ago"

Published Wednesday, Nov 12 2014, 18:40 GMT  |  By   |

Strictly Come Dancing star Mark Wright revealed he has never had a fake tan before... until now! 

Yep, we couldn't quite believe it either... 

Revealing he has never dabbled in a bit of DIY bronzing, Mark has admitted it took him four weeks on Strictly before he eventually gave in.

Speaking at the Bootea Shake launch, Essex boy Mark made the shocking revelation and claimed he only recently had his first ever fake tan.

He told Reveal: "I can categorically say that three weeks ago... I lost my spray tan virginity.

"I've never had a fake tan in my life. I've always been called perma-tan Mark anyway, so I've never had one and thought I'd stick [to not having one]. 

"But, when I started Strictly I said no to having a spray tan and the producers were like you're going to look so pale compared to everyone else. Steve, Jake they all had them, but I didn't. Then it got to the fourth week and I watched the show... I was really white."

Finally giving in, Mark decided to tan up and do Essex proud. But, he insisted it won't be a regular occurrence. 

"I wouldn't have them everyday, though," he said. "Just for Strictly!!"

But, fake tan isn't the only thing Mark has taken a liking to lately... 

Getting right into the Strictly spirit, the ex-TOWIE star confessed he has a new found love for sequins. 

Mark added: "It's really weird when I started on the show, I went for my first fitting and they gave me Latin trousers and a sparkly top and I was like 'Woah! Take all that off and dress me how I am.'

"But now… I can't have a top without sparkles on. Week 2 I had to wear just a normal jumper and I was like, but it isn't sparkly… stick some sparkles on it!"

Who knew?!

Dancing up a storm with his professional partner Karen Haeur, Mark has gone from strength to strength on Strictly lately. Despite finding himself in the bottom two quite early on in the show, the 27-year-old has bounced back and recently Mark has even found himself sitting in the leaderboard's top three.

But, does he think he has what it takes to take home Strictly's Mirrorball Trophy?

Insisting he hasn't let himself think that far ahead, Mark said: "I'm not even thinking about winning. I've won getting to this point. 

"If I was to go now – obviously I don't want to – but if I did, I'm more than happy with my experience."Mark
