So, farewell then Page 3
Since 1970, you have been a tradition in The Sun
You had many critics and they have now won
But you had your knockers too.
I always found the feature a harmless bit of smut and a *ahem* valuable learning tool for children - especially as most six year old can read and understand The Sun. It launched the naff pop, corny comedy, B movie, lads mag, reality TV, presenting and panto careers (or just plain WAGdom) of many a glamour girl including Samantha Fox (above) Maria Whittaker, Linda Lusardi, Kathy Lloyd, Donna Ewin, Jo Guest, Jordan aka Katie Price, Katie Downes, Katie Richmond, Melinda Messenger, Zoe McConnell, Penny Irving, Jennie Linden, Keeley Hazell, Michelle Marsh, Lucy Pinder and Jayne Middlemiss (below) who perhaps more than most broke out of the page's glamour girl trappings to present numerous radio and TV programmes.
But when all is said and done it's perhaps right that, in this day and age, they called time on it.
Though in recent years I had a soft spot (well, not that soft!) for Lucy Collett aka 'Lucy, 22 from Warwick' and Poppy Rivers - who had lovely eyes Yes, I really mean eyes!
