He adds, "It was a daunting experience stripping off in front of a room of people but after a while you get used to it -- although my mum still hasn't."

"I've done quite a few shoots and you can have fun doing them," he says. "I'm a footballer and that's where I'm most comfortable, but I've enjoyed working with some great photographers over the years."
