Wednesday 6th February:

NO PAGE 3 IN THE SUN

It was ditched in favour of some non topless nicked from FHM shot of someone who is desperate to boost her career. Unacceptable and pointless.

So it was down to the Daily Star to save the day which thankfully they did:



Rosy O'Brien was our one and only topless girl for today. The printed version had been flipped again and it did look a bit odd having Rosy's name rammed up her armpit but overall it was a decent picture and at least they bothered unlike The Sun...

Thursday 7th February:

Something seems to be wrong with The Sun, following yesterday's no show, today we have long since retired Katie Downes (always nice to see her of course!) in an old picture and there is no sign of any online version on the website, just blank spaces so the printed version gets the scanner treatment for the monent:



EDIT: The full set of three pictures eventually appeared online late Thursday afternoon but I can confirm these are from an identical set first used in the middle of last year:



All is well over at the Daily Star (the centre pages wasted on a pointless semi-clad plastic TOWIE reject in her undies not with standing) with a nicely presented picture of Geena Mullins although yet again flipped for the printed version.

Friday 8th February:

The Sun ended the week with a cracking shot of Sam which on the printed version would have been so much better without the 'News in Briefs' bubble which really is old hat now...



Holly Gasson in the Daily Star, not a flipped picture for a change as they got her to pose facing the right way around it would seem!! Pity about the presentation of the printed version, cropped very tightly to the point where her nipples were outside the frame, very sloppy:

Monday 11th February:

We start the week off with the rumour that Rupert Murdoch has tweeted that Page 3 may be scrapped!! Unfortunately this was matched today with a quite frankly crap picture of Page 3 Idol Melissa Clarke on location somewhere looking throughly fed up and miserable. The other two online pics from the same set were marginally better but not by much:



The Daily Star made a bit of a mess of their Page 3 today as well, Emma was doing the honours and at least she managed a smile unlike Melissa's naff effort in The Sun, all this despite the caption box being placed overlapping her hair:

Tuesday 12th February:

Following yesterday's rather disappointing picture The Sun had some ground to make up and they did with a nice smiling Staci on location on a beach:



Also Chloe appeared in a 'Lodge' type shoot online entitled 'Purple Haze' and as usual a nice accompnying video (again sadly undownloadable it would seem ) of the photoshoot was included but what was the point if we only get to see such small images again?



Over in the Daily Star yet another Page 3 Idol competitor joins the Daily Star fold (this is bordering on the riddiculous now!!) however like the other four (and counting) we have had so far this is another good addition and is in fact the defeated finalist Jessica Kingham no less:



Just wish the printed pictures in the Star were allowed to be a bit bigger and better framed to do the justice to them that they deserve.

Wednesday 13th February:

Rather nice new pictures, presumably from the recent Barbados shoot of Lacy Banghard, somewhere sunny on a dusty rural path in the middle of nowhere and the other two shots online were also well worth a look:



Fairly standard fare from the Daily Star by comparison, the usual backdrop in a studio shot of Chloe Goodman today:

Thursday 14th February - Valentines Day!

So did Page 3 do something special for Valentines Day? Not so that you would have noticed no…

In The Sun someone must have realised what today was as Lucy got the job today posing on a beach and to add a rather dismal Valentine element, she had a heart scrawled in the sand in front of her which resulted in three rather nice online pics including two landscape format that were actually in the larger size:



What a pity therefore that the page layout muffin decided to crop the picture for the printed version leaving out the heart in the sand thereby giving the impression that this was just an ordinary Page 3 pic.

The Daily Star sort of made an effort but it most certainly wasn’t the Star’s best effort with Melissa Debling holding a single rose against a ghastly pink background and with a couple of computer generated hearts plonked on the top right hand corner (on the printed version anyway):



If I can find them, I will put up some scans of Valentines Day Page 3’s from days past later to show you how it used to be and should be done!

On a slight tangent, I found a few Valentines Day pics from the 1990's so have scanned them to show how 14th February pics used to be done when the Page 3 papers had a bit of imagination:

Funnily enough, the Sun have done the same, with a selection of Valentine's Day pics from the last few years.






P3 definitely doesn't seem to be as good as it used to be, despite still having some great girls- it sometimes seems a bit as if they're just going through the motions. Those Valentine's Day pics today almost look as if someone suddenly remembered 'Oh we need a set for Valentine's Day' and just drew a quick heart on the sand for Lucy to pose with.
Sure, they're good pics, and Lucy is one of my favourite Page 3 girls of the present era, so I'm not complaining too much, but as you suggest, at times it really feels like there's not all that much thought going into them.

Friday 15th February:

NO PAGE 3 IN THE SUN
The appearance of some long forgotten model in a publicity pic on page eleven I think it was suggested that even if there had not been the big story splash their might not have been one anyway. HOWEVER online a trio of nice (but I suspect recycled seeing as their the older smaller format) pictures of Amii Grove did appear so for completeness here they are:



The Daily Star managed to have a Page 3 despite the big news story and it was on Page 3 as well. The lovely Summer (one time Page 3 Idol semi-finalist) in a pretty decent picture saved the day:
