“Nicknames are bad names,” according to David Brent – but we’re going to have to disagree with Slough’s greatest dancer on this occasion.
Because this week we’re catching up with perennial #ManOnTwitties favourite Gemma Lago. However, we’re willing to bet a hefty sum that you better recognise the Sussex sexpot by her social media moniker, Cleavage Queen – a great name to have in anyone’s books.
But how did that nickname come about? “I can’t actually remember,” says Gemma. “I think it started off when my followers were calling me the queen of cleavage. Then it started a hashtag, so when I decided to change my Twitter handle I just went with that!”
And what a decision that was! Now get to know more about Gemma in our exclusive interview, as we talk boudoir shoots, rabbit welfare and being the girl next door type!
Gemma Lago fact file and interview
Hi Gemma! Welcome to Man On, it’s great to have you with us after all these #ManOnTwitties weeks!
Thank you for having me! Well, #ManOnTwitties is my favourite day of the week so the pleasure is all mine!
Tell us a bit about how you first got into modelling?
About five years ago I won a competition with a photographer for a free boudoir shoot. It went well and I had fun, and I’ve just been building up my portfolio from there.
Across all your platforms you have over 50,000 followers! What’s the best thing about having such a big fanbase?
Being able to communicate with so many people and raise awareness for things I care about, like anti-bullying campaigns or rabbit welfare, is incredible. I’m so grateful to have that platform.
You’re one of the most popular girls on the Frisk platform. Why should people sign up to your page?
Because I’m fun, friendly and the girl next door type! My page is full of glamour, teasing and entertainment – so come on boys, join in on the fun and come and see what you’ve been missing out on!
What keeps you busy when you’re not in front of the camera lens?
I run my own beauty business which I love doing but takes up a lot of my time – it’s certainly keeping me busy during lockdown! Then I enjoy watching movies or playing Xbox to unwind. Although I’m all about Disney+ right now!
Lastly, what’s the first thing you’ll do once lockdown is over?
Treat myself to a fresh set of nails and a nice dinner out with my partner! Bring it on!
