Preeti Young – Olympic Summer 2012

Preeti Young wink - Babestation 2012

Zooming back to the year of 2012, and a reminder that the UK could have won at least one more Olympic gold had there been a winking category in the games.

Yes, ’tis long-time Babestation luminary Preeti Young fronting Babestation 1 in the summer of the London Olympics. Guests from around the world sampling British television for the first time may well have been tempted to arrange further visits after encountering Babestation’s topless and naked models across Channels 93 to 96, all night, every night of the week.

Fernanda Ferrari – TMTV March 2010

Fernanda Ferrari - TMTV 7 March 2010

At the height the UK babe TV era, here’s Fernanda Ferrari introducing Early Bird on TMTV Freeview 98. It’s 05:30 on Sunday 7th March 2010, and Fernanda (today a Studio66 model) has just taken over on set from Donna Duke. Continue reading “Fernanda Ferrari – TMTV March 2010”

Charlie Monaco & Tori Lee – Bang Babes Sauna

Charlie Monaco and Tori Lee - Bang Babes sauna

More monochrome, but once again this is unpublished material from the increasingly valuable archives of golden-age UK babe TV. The above image preserves the moment just before Charlie Monaco (left) and Tori Lee took a seriously steamy early morning sauna on the interactive chat show Bang Babes.

Charlie C – Babestation

Charlie C - Babestation Daytime Opening Sequence, 2010

Not the kind of image one would typically associate with Babestation, but with a little digital treatment, this high-impact monochrome of Charlie C is an instant glamour classic.

The source footage was actually a February 2010 opening sequence to Babestation Daytime – a colour compilation in its original format. At the time, the opening sequences to Babestation’s day and night shows were built around video clips of the headlining models. Since the lineup of headlining models generally evolved quite swiftly, the sequences were withdrawn and replaced on a fairly regular basis. Continue reading “Charlie C – Babestation”

Jemma Jey – Old Babestation 1

Jemma Jey - Babestation 1

A golden memory from noughties Babestation, as Jemma Jey presents a typically seductive intro to her opening chat section on Monday 18th May 2009.

This was right at the peak of Jemma’s career on the UK babe channels, coming after six months of high profile mischief on the game-changing Channel 46 all-nighter Party Girls. Over that period, Jemma had also sustained very regular appearances on the Channel 37 flirtfest Party People, as well as intensive work across other Babestation brands on the Sky platform.

Lucy-Anne Brooks on Early Bird

Lucy-Anne Brooks - Early Bird, March 2010

Ask a long-time fan of interactive daytime chat programmes to drop the channel politics and tell you the name of the hottest show ever to hit the UK’s Freeview EPG, and there’ll only be one answer: Early Bird. Continue reading “Lucy-Anne Brooks on Early Bird”

Charlie O’Neil – Elite Nights 24th April 2011

Charlie O'Neil - Elite TV, 24th April 2011

On the first Saturday night of Elite TV’s terrestrial run on Channel 192, Charlie O’Neil introduces the interactive chat programme to a selection of the UK’s most sleepless males. Technically, it’s Sunday morning, since Elite did not go live on 192 until 1am, having taken up the broadcasting slot which Television X’s Honey Nights vacated less than a week earlier.

Through the course of Elite TV’s Freeview era, which ended in January 2012, Charlie was one of the most intensively employed models. Given the nature of the channel’s commercial system, that would almost certainly indicate she was a highly successful seller of the service.
