How we’ve missed our buddy Holly. Nearly 60 issues and 1,800 days may have passed since our last meeting, but nothing about her has changed. The body’s still stunning; the sense of humour’s still coarse; the outer persona’s still laid-back; the inner-persona’s still fiery. At 25, her career may have entered stage three (Operation: Break Hollywood), but Holly Valance is still the girl FHM fell in love with as soon as she entered our lives as 16-year-old Ramsay Street schoolgirl Felicity ‘Flick’ Scully. The girl who, just after she turned 20, told FHM the joke: “What do you tell a girl with two black eyes? Nothing. She’s already been told twice.”

You can read the full interview and see the full set of pictures in the September issue of FHM, but here are our favourite bits:

“After my first FHM shoot I got a letter from a priest condemning me for posing in a bikini. I was like “Dude, I’m already going to hell.”

“I’m not going to pose, pout and try to look pretty when I’m punching someone’s head in. I want to look brutal. I want to be an action hero.”

“I tell you what… If I get back into the top ten in FHM's next 100 Sexiest I will do a nudey vid.”

“The Kiss Kiss video was fun. I can say to the grandkids: look at nana’s jugs. Weren’t they perky 80 years ago?”
