JENNIFER METCALFE SWAPS MERCEDES FOR A MOTORBIKE - Hollyoaks actress launches 2011 Bennetts Babes Search.
Swapping her lycra for leathers, former Dancing on Ice star Jennifer Metcalfe turned biker babe today to launch the search for the 2011 Bennetts Babes squad. The annual competition, run by the UK's No.1 for bike insurance*, sees the nation's sexiest babes compete for a place in the hottest squad in the biking world with a modelling contract also on offer.
Having left the reality show last Sunday, when judges voted to keep Vanilla Ice in the competition, the Hollyoaks actress best known for her role as mouthy Mercedes is now on the lookout for the next set of eight beauties to be the face of the biking brand. The Bennetts Babes, now in its eighth year, has played a huge part in the careers of a number of famous faces including Big Brother 10 winner Sophie Reade and The only way is Essex's Maria Fowler.
Speaking at the launch, Jennifer said "It's been a whirlwind for me since leaving Dancing on Ice and I can't believe I'm now swapping my lycra for leathers! The shoot was great fun and I really did feel like Marianne Faithfull in 'Girl on a Motorcycle'. The Bennetts Babes Squad is a great way to help girls break into the modelling industry and I'd encourage girls across the country to enter - I can't wait to meet the final squad."
With only eight places up for grabs, the chosen babes will be unveiled in April before taking part in a string of events, modelling assignments and marketing campaigns to represent Bennetts throughout 2011.
Hannah Squirrell, Marketing Director of Bennetts said "We're after eight gorgeous girls to form this year's Bennetts Babes squad and hope 2011 will be the biggest and best search yet! We wish all wannabe models the best of luck and hope everyone will be as eager as Jennifer step into a pair of leathers!"
