Former Wonderbra Girl Admits Charging Men For Sex

32-year-old model and former Wonderbra girl  Sophie Anderton has admitted that she worked as a high-class prositute charging £15,000 an hour from clients to fuel her drug addiction.

She told the Sun newspaper: 'It was all over in two minutes. I lay there thinking, "Is that it' For £15k, is that it'"'

The 32-year-old described how in 2004 she would drink a bottle of vodka every night and use cocaine in the daytime. She said: 'The coke ran out, my cash card was rejected and my dealer was ringing up demanding payments. I knew I desperately needed money - now.'

At this point Sophie was introduced to a call girl who told her to dress sexily and priced her at 10,000 to £15,000 an hour. She said: 'I felt a bit sick before my first time but I told myself to get a grip.'

Dressed in a black Dolce and Gabbana suit, with 6in Louboutin heels, she got a taxi to a hotel in Knightsbridge, West London. She described her first client as a smart Arab man, in his mid-thirties and quite handsome.

'We shook hands. He seemed so lonely my nerves vanished and I felt sorry for this man. After about 40 minutes of talking, I decided to take charge and stood up and took my dress off. I pushed him back on the bed while he looked at me eagerly.  I felt in control. It was over very quickly. He handed me the cash and I slipped out.'

Sophie went on to explain how she travelled first class to Italy to meet a client in a luxury hotel.

He turned out to be a British businessman she knew who asked her:  "Sophie, why is a nice girl like you doing something like this'" 

Sophie slept with five men and earned £50,000 to pay off her drug debts and put down a deposit on a flat. She blames her modelling career for leading her towards prostitution.

'I'm not alone in going down this path. There is a dark side to the modelling world. At least two supermodels are on the game.'

Sophie shot to fame when she modelled for lingerie giant Gossard in 1996 and soon hit the party scene. She became engaged to millionaire Robert Hanson, 17 years her senior, but the relationship was over by 2000.

It was during her high profile relationship with former Chelsea goalie Mark Bosnich in 2002 that her cocaine addition became public.

In 2007 Sophie became the victim of a national newspaper sting that saw her taking cocaine and offering to sleep with a fake sheikh for £10,000.

More drama followed when she began dating 32-year-old property developer, Ed Buxton. The pair's stormy relationship ended in 2008 after they had been together less than a year. After a brief reconciliation Sophie checked into a psychiatric unit in July.

However she now claims her darkest days are behind her and is she is trying to stay away from drugs.
