"I was a bit frightened, a bit shocked actually," she sniffs, "and I didn't think there were many things that could shock me after working as a glamour model for 11 years." Although she wanted to break into TV, she discovered in LA that there are just some things she is not prepared to do to get there.
"I'm actually turning into a bit of a prude as I get older," she giggles.

When Sinclair was approached to do glamour work it was the first time she felt she had been treated as a woman, not simply the odd one out. I fell for it hook, line and sinker, really." Although she says she will never regret getting into the industry, there was much that Sinclair admits she wishes she hadn't done in that early period, not least the hardcore work which she now feels is stopping her move into a more respectable career.
