Rachel, Wateraid Ambassador, mother, and more recently FHM’s Sexiest Women In The World has joined WaterAid’s #MeAsAGirl campaign. The article comes complete with a never before seen Childhood picture of our gorgeous
A new WaterAid campaign, launching today, is asking women everywhere to post a childhood snap with the hashtag #MeAsAGirl, to raise awareness of the thousands of girls around the world who are suffering because they lack access to clean water.
The problems they endure aren’t limited to the obvious – lack of safe drinking water, personal hygiene and clean toilet facilities – but also have a direct link to education, as children spend their days trying to collect and carry clean water for their families, rather than going to school. The consequences of not having these basic services affect women and girls the most, as going to the toilet in the open leaves them vulnerable to violence and sexual assault.
“I’m supporting WaterAid’s To be a girl campaign as I believe all girls should be able to go to school and get an education,” Sarah Brown said today. “Too many girls around the world drop out of school because of the lack of somewhere private to go the toilet, or spend hours collecting water every day or have school sick days from drinking dirty water. No girl deserves to miss the chance to fulfil her potential because of lack of access to clean, safe water.”
Aiming to highlight the carefree childhoods that most people growing up in the UK have, WaterAid is aiming to also raise £1million to help bring safe, clean water and sanitation to over 130,000 girls around the world. Take a look through our gallery of celebrities above including Sarah Brown and Laura Whitmore (not to mention a few Marie Claire staffers) and start posting your own.
We will be re-tweeting everyone who shares their #MeAsAGirl pictures with us and WaterAid on Twitter and texts GIRLS to 70300 to donate £3. We will also update the gallery above with the best snaps.

It’s for a great cause, the annual Butterfly Ball for Caudwell Children, a charity that helps lots of young disabled children and their families by providing support, equipment, therapies and treatment to people who otherwise may not be able to afford the help they really need.
I became a patron of the charity when I first performed at the ball quite a few years ago and I was lucky enough to meet some of the incredible and brave children and families who they support. Last time I attended the ball I was very humbled, it raised huge amounts of money and I got the chance to meet more people that the charity helps, as well as those working hard to make this all happen on a daily basis.
So, it’s an absolute pleasure to be invited back again this year and I’m looking forward to being part of the event. Fingers crossed that they raise a huge amount on the night!

Rachel is scheduled to appear on Channel 4′s Celeb Hunters tonight! It would seem as if this was filmed back in October when Rachel was at the Wedding Dress exhibit show, but i could be wrong. Be sure and tune in tonight and catch Rachel!! Hopefully we get a video of it.
On Channel 4 tonight at 10pm I’ll be interviewed on Chris Stark’s Celeb Hunter show.
Chris puts together his own mobile chat show armed only with his dad’s camping chairs. He and his mates have gone to the pub and put together their ultimate list of famous faces, including Elton John, Derek Akorah, Verne Troyer, Ricky Hatton, Johnny Knoxville and Carol Vorderman.
He’s out to prove that celebrities are normal people and if you talk to them like you’re having a pint down your local they really are just normal people.
Eventually through persistence, a lot of loitering and crashing a wedding show (to find me!) – we catch up!
