We love the Calendar Girls every day of the year
IT'S a big ask appearing on stage without your clothes but when Jo Alexander performs as a Calendar Girl it will be just five months since she gave birth to her daughter Phoebe.
But she seems unfazed by the task of taking on the role of big-busted Celia in the play.
"It's been a chance to have some me time since having my daughter," said Jo, 35, who performs alongside fellow Cheltenham Operatic and Dramatic Society members at the Playhouse in Cheltenham, from tomorrow until next Saturday.
"It's been a fantastic experience," said Jo, who assured that all the awkward bits have been done very tastefully.

"The choreography has been done very carefully so we are not going to reveal too much," she said. "We are all conscious we are not models but ordinary women who come in all shapes and sizes."
The play tells of WI members Annie and Chris, who decide to make a charity calendar with a difference and have to persuade other WI ladies to reveal all.
"We are taking the audience on a bit of an emotional journey, but one that has lots of comedy as well as emotion," said Jo. Tickets cost £12 from 01242 522852.
