Early lifeEdit

Frampton attended Elfed High School in Buckley.[1] She competed in beauty pageants as a child, winning her first competition at the age of 10 months and going on to win Miss Wyre bathing beauty in Fleetwood at the age of two. She won over 200 trophies, including Miss Llandudno and Junior Miss Wyre when she was 12. She was also triple winner of the Miss Welsh Resort's trophy as well as Miss Millenium 2000. Frampton's aim was to compete for Miss Wales, but at 5 ft 2ins she considered herself too short and stopped entering competitions aged 14.[2]

Modeling careerEdit

Frampton's mother suggested that she try glamour modeling. She showed some photos of Cherry to glamour models she knew who suggested that she send some Bikini Shots into the Daily Sport. Shortly after he 16th birthday, she had her first topless shoot in Bolton with photographer Anthony Farnworth.[2] She made her topless debut in the Daily Sport tabloid newspaper on 10 August 2003, two months after turning 16.[citation needed] At the time, she was employed by Buckley Town F.C. soccer club as its team mascot, but club directors dismissed her from the role when her topless pictures started to appear in the national tabloids.[3]

Gwynn Williams documented the beginning of Frampton's glamour career for an On the Edge documentary that was first broadcast on HTV Wales on 8 January 2004.[4]

On 1 May 2004, the Sexual Offences Act 2003 came into effect, which raised the legal permissible age for photography considered indecent in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland from 16 to 18. Frampton was forced to put her topless modelling career on hiatus until she turned 18, as newspapers and magazines decided on legal advice that glamour images could be seen as indecent. She also took the precaution of removing from her website all topless photographs taken before her 18th birthday. As she approached her birthday and prepared to relaunch her glamour career, the media reported that she had insured her breasts for £1 million.[3]

Retirement from modellingEdit

In August 2007, at the age of 20, Frampton announced her retirement from glamour modeling, stating that she intended to devote her time to charity work in Africa.[5] In a December 2009 interview, Frampton additionally revealed that she left glamour modeling because she felt pressured to take drugs and to pose for increasingly explicit photographs.[6] She moved home to Wales and began working in a nursing home, caring for the elderly.[7]
