Profile Bio Text
Corinne Russell (born 22 November 1963 in Birmingham, England) was a Page 3 Girl, Glamour Model and dancer during the 1980s. She became an accomplished student of gymnastics and dance as a young schoolgirl. She even went on to become an instructor herself, teaching acrobatic and ballroom dancing and specializing in Latin-American dance. Corinne even spent six weeks in a Greek hotel displaying her own style of Terpsichore. Her dancing skills even led her to become a dancer on Top of the Pops. She was also a contortionist.
She also worked as an office girl and a barmaid in a pub, where while she worked she grew in skill as a darts player. So much so that she went on to captain a women`s darts team. It was while working as a barmaid that a fashion photographer eventually noticed her and her modelling career began. She went on to become one of The Sun`s most popular Page 3 Girls. She made her page 3 debut in The Sun on 23 August 1982, first appearing in the Daily Star on 7 September, and notched up 181 appearances in total (110 in The Sun and 71 in the Star) before making her final appearances on 27 September (Sun) and 8 October (Star) 1990 respectively. She became one of the "Hill`s Angels" on the 1983 cycle of The Benny Hill Show. It was here that Corinne`s contortionist talents were utilized to maximum effect during the "Keep Fit" section of "The Cruise Liner" Hill`s Angels routine, and her end chase moments during the controversial "Super Teech" sketch, and the "Mahala Bubble dance" number during the "Saucy Boy" sketch. She also appeared in the "Holiday" sketch and the Hill`s Angels routine "Wild, Wild West". Corinne`s film work includes Absolute Beginners, Highlander, and was chosen along with Janine Andrews and Joni Flynn to dance in silhouette during the opening credits of the 1983 James Bond flick Octopussy. She had a minor role in the notorious bomb Bolero which starred Bo Derek that was directed by Bo`s then husband John Derek. Corinne was in an outdoor hot tub in her only scene. She also appeared in the May 1983 issue of Lui magazine in a 3D layout of her in poses of various famous pin-ups, such as Brigitte Bardot, Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield as well as in High Society in May 1988. She was nude in the January 1984 issue of Mayfair. Corinne has also graced many print ads for swimsuits and lingerie (mainly appearing in Europe), and was also featured as a character in the video game "Vixen", released in 1988, and was in the AC/DC rock video, "You Shook Me All Night Long."
