Cancer survivor, 65, models live in lingerie
SUPERWOMAN Anji Bramley has been getting her kit off to celebrate KnickerBockers lingerie and swimwear shop's fourth birthday.
Owner Verity Symcox asked extrovert Anji, 65, to model as a live window mannequin to show off various fashions during a day of fun and frivolity.
It was not the first time breast cancer survivor Anji had revealed this side of her.
She said: "This was the fourth time I'd helped Verity out.

"I love doing it. It creates a reaction from people."
Anji was diagnosed with cancer seven years ago and got the all clear in 2011. Since diagnosis she has enjoyed a new lease of life.
"It turbo charged me when I found out," she said.
"I've been to Australia every year since, travelling around house sitting. I don't arrange it beforehand, I just head out there and go with the flow.
"I didn't do anything like that before finding out I had cancer. I call myself Superwoman."
She added: "I got the idea for being a live underwear model when I was in Sydney and saw someone doing it, although she was a lot younger than me. I don't get nervous about it."
Anji was modelling various styles of underwear for four hours last Saturday.
Verity said: "Anji had breast cancer and like so many has fought back from the disease.
"She is a real star and has always supported our businesses, which do so much for breast cancer and its sufferers."
She added: "People are really interested to see a live model and it gets people talking. Nailsworth is a bit of a sleepy town so, if anything, this wakes people up a bit."
