Beach Babe Carol Goes International
10:02am 14th January 2013
A Cornish mum of two reveals how she has found international fame after winning Pirate FM's Style Awards.
Carol Dunster has featured in papers around the world since we picked her as the Duchy's beach babe at the age of 46.
The St Austell driving instructor beat off competition from entrants less than half her age to grab the title.
Since then she has featured in The Sun and Daily Mail, as well as a host of other papers and magazines across the globe.
The superfit mum has run a string of marathons for charity and puts her fitness down to not smoking and getting a good night's sleep.
She told Neil and Tina on Pirate FM's breakfast show: "It's not a bad photo of me on the beach. I'd literally just come out of the water, no make-up, it was windy, the hair was all over the place. I'm not a celebrity, I've had no cosmetic surgery, I don't have all the money the celebs have. I'm just little old me.
"It's caused a stir I think, all over the world, because I'm not a model. I'm just a normal woman who looks good and I'm also not a stick insect. I've got curves. Who wants to be really, really skinny? I'm just a normal girl."
Breakfast show presenter Neil Caddy said: "'Carol's win just goes to show that beauty is not contingent on age. If you're confident and proud of who you are, then your beauty will shine through."
