A {{British newspaper|s}} trope, basically involving the gratuitous placing of pictures of semi-naked people in a newspaper. Of course, when we say "people" we really mean "[[AlwaysFemale young attractive women]]." (''The Sun'' briefly had a Page Seven Fella in TheEighties, but it didn't last.)

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 In which case she is pushed back to Page five. Or to Page Seven, if it's a REALLY big newsworthy catastrophe.). 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.

* Sugar Walls a.k.a. Sharon [=LaHughes=] from ''Series/GimmeGimmeGimme'' is famous for being a celebrity that poses in her underwear and topless in newspapers (although not named, you can guess after reading this page what some of those newspapers were). Tom and Linda (secretly, her older sister) are disgusted by it and {{slut sham|ing}}e her behind her back.

* One appears in ''WaterlooRoad'' as a former pupil of the school.
* ''Whatever It Takes'' is an average {{ITV}} one-off drama about a trainee police officer who gets caught having sex with a footballer and becomes one of these, suffering the full effects of celebrity. She is "replaced" by another one, oddly enough played by an actress who had been in ''WaterlooRoad''.

** Also referenced in an episode where Hacker's daughter is threatening a nude protest over endangered wildlife. He laments that the stunt will get her onto the front page of the paper � "and probably page three as well".

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 politician (in the suburbs of Brighton, England). Oh yeah, and back in her Playmate days, she had an affair with Creator/DanielCraig. ''Series/CoronationStreet'' graduate and professional MsFanservice Helen Flanagan posed for Page Three in September 2013.

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. It continues online, however.
