At the height of her fame former Page 3 girl Tracy Kirby was in constant demand and commanded huge fees for personal appearances. A dramatic falling out with the modelling world left her destitute but she refused to be beaten and began pursuing a career in television while working part-time for a bureau de change. A week before she was to begin presenting a major Channel 4 show, Tracy was arrested. The bureau turned out to be a front for a massive international drugs gang run by some of the most notorious and dangerous gangsters in the world. As her entire world crumbled around her, Tracy was sent to Holloway prison and told that after trial, she could expect a sentence of at least 18 years. Tracy found herself driven to the brink of suicide by a world where brutality, sexual violence and cruelty are considered the norm. She spent two years in prison before the charges against her were finally dropped and she was allowed to go free. From the unglamorous truth behind the glamour industry to the harsh realities of the women's penal system, The Model Prisoner is an extraordinary story told with wit, intelligence, humour and above all, courage.
