Gorgeous The Apprentice star Luisa Zissman has revealed that she would be happy to pose nude for lads’ mag Playboy, but only if she was handsomely paid to do so. And quite right too!

Luisa, who was runner-up on this year’s Apprentice, said, “I’d love to do Playboy!

“It’s like an institution. But obviously I’m not going to do it for free.”

And when asked how much she would expect to be paid to be a Playboy centerfold, Luisa told the Daily Star, “A million pounds,” before adding, “I don’t know, I doubt they’d have me.”

I don’t see why they wouldn’t!

However, last summer, Luisa told Heat magazine that she would consider offers of around £100k to get her kit off for the cameras.

She added, “Taking your clothes off isn’t really a big deal.”

She added, “I’ve always said and been up front with the fact I don’t have an issue with being a sexual young woman.

“I don’t see anything wrong with it, and I don’t see anything wrong with nudity.

“I’m not a prude, I’m not shy – although I think there’s a time and a place – but there’s nothing wrong with being a young woman who is proud to show off her body.”

Having said that though, Luisa recently told Daily Star, “I won’t sunbathe topless anymore because the amount of stick I’ll get for doing that isn’t worthwhile.

“But then on one hand I’m like ‘screw it’. I’ve always sunbathed topless, since I went on my first holiday at 16.

“I just think it’s weird people having a pop at me in a bikini because I was on holiday.

“I was like, ‘What do you wear on holiday, a burkha?’”

Luisa also remarked that the only thing she finds really upsetting about derogatory tales in the tabloids regarding her are how they might affect her family.

However, she added, “My mum has always wanted me to be happy and as long as I’m happy and my mum is happy everything is fine.

“[But] I’ve had so many sarcastic comments from people who are like, ‘You’re parents must be so proud’.

“But you know what? My parents are proud. I think I’ve achieved a lot for a 26 year old woman and they’re proud of that.”

Well said!
