Ex model banned after she was caught drink driving

A former model has been banned from the roads for drink driving after claiming she had been 'struggling' to deal with the end of her career as a pin-up girl.

Holly Peers, 32, failed a breathalyser test after she was stopped for driving her Fiat 500 onto the lane of a motorway which had been closed off due to roadworks. 

Tests revealed the one-time Page 3 girl, who appeared as a 'soccerette' - an attractive female model donning their favourite football team's strip - on TV's Soccer AM, was 11 points over the alcohol limit when stopped by police.

She pleaded for clemency saying she was having to embark on a new career as her modelling work was 'drying up'.

She was banned from driving for 12 months, offered a place on a drink driver's rehabilitation course and fined £400, with £125 ordered in costs and surcharges.

The incident occurred at 1am on November 10 this year after Peers, who had been out with friends was driving home along the M60, was spotted at Junction 13 at Salford.

David Morgan, prosecuting, said: 'Two lanes were closed and an electronic sign directed drivers that the lanes were closed.
