Teacher turns star lingerie model

A Birmingham teacher has turned her pupils' heads - by winning a contest to be a lingerie firm's star model.

Psychology teacher Laura Butler, 26, was picked by Curvy Kate to be the firm's new model for its plus-size lingerie.

She is now juggling her modelling work with finishing her studies for a teaching degree at university, reports The Mirror.

Ms Butler, who already teaches psychology to International Baccalaureate and A-Level students, says her family, friends and even pupils are right behind her.

"The satisfaction of modelling is different to the satisfaction I get from teaching as it's something I do for me," she said.

"Teaching is something I do because I am good at it and love helping the students.

"Modelling makes your confidence soar and gives you something to talk about when you are older."
