''The Sun'' also ran a competition called ''Page 3 Idol'', with results humourous (one of the winners had the name Lacey Banghard) and tragic (2007 winner Jenny Grant committed suicide).

But the PageThreeStunna could well be a thing of the past - the Irish edition of ''The Sun'' got rid of them in 2013 (though, they've been replaced by stories about whichever MsFanservice is in the news at the moment. The basic difference is that they're not showing bare breasts) and the UK edition followed suit in 2015.

2015. It continues online, however.

''The Sun'' will often include a comment (ostensibly) from the model in question about some topical story, under the heading "News in Briefs". Recently these have moved away from [[{{QI}} Alan Davies]]'s "Jenny from Exeter thinks that war is bad" to [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/magazinemonitor/2010/05/paper_monitor_937.shtml the frankly absurd]] -- it long ago became a RunningGag that the pieces obviously weren't the models' own opinions, and they're often SophisticatedAsHell (clashing with the paper's usual house style) for comic effect.

The most famous (or infamous) PageThreeStunna is Jordan, aka Katie Price, former-other half of Peter Andre. She was "retired" from Page Three after she got breast implants (which ''The Sun'' doesn't allow). A famous early one was Samantha Fox, who later came out as a lesbian (she sang a bit too). Another well-known former PageThreeStunna is Marina Baker (who these days often goes under her married name of Marina Pepper), a former Playboy Playmate turned journalist, author (of several books on white magic -- she's a practicing Wiccan), environmental activist and local politican (in the suburbs of Brighton, England). Oh yeah, and back in her Playmate days, she had an affair with Creator/DanielCraig. ''CoronationStreet'' graduate and professional MsFanservice Helen Flanagan posed for Page Three in September 2013.

The most famous (or infamous) example is ''The Sun'' and its "Page Three Girls", one of whom poses topless on the third page of each day's issue (unless something big and tragic has happened). There's some quote from them on an issue of the day -- in which, by extraordinary coincidence, they invariably agree with the ''Sun'''s right-wing editorial stance. Some of the "models" used to be as young as 16 until the law was changed.
