Linda Lusardi's model past never a part of daughter's life

Linda Lusardi's topless modelling past has "never really been part" of her daughter Lucy Kane's life.
The 58-year-old beauty gave up her job as a Page 3 model 10 years before her daughter Lucy - who is currently competing in ITV singing competition 'The Voice UK' - was born, and says she was seven years old before she found out about her mother's raunchy career.
Speaking on 'Loose Women' on Friday (24.02.17), Linda explained: "I feel like I'm talking about a different person. As I say, I gave up 10 years before Lucy was born, eight years before I met her dad [Samuel Kane], so it's never really been part of their lives at all.
"I do remember we were up clearing out the loft and we'd got all my cuttings and I was like 'Oh dear, how do I deal with this?' and I think Lucy was about seven. And I was like 'Look, this is what mummy used to do Lucy, I used to have pictures in the papers.'
"She went 'Oh mummy that's a lovely shot, shame you forgot to put your bra on.'"
Since quitting her job as a model, Linda decided a few years back to take up photography and now has her own studio in her home in Hertfordshire.
She said last year: "All the time I was doing photoshoots, I was learning about it, but I was put off by the darkrooms. Then digital came along and everyone seemed to become a photographer. I know what it's like on both sides of the camera and how to make people relax into it if they're nervous.
"Even when I was a model, the photographers liked working with me because I could help other girls. Lighting is the most important element. It doesn't matter who you're photographing, if you haven't got decent lighting it's going to be a problem."
