During the Ashes summer, it can be easy to get caught up in a whirlwind of anti-Australian vitriol.
 
Fortunately, Erin Gleave (formerly McNaught) is on hand to prove that Australia isn't so bad after all.

In fact, our photo shoot and interview with this particularly sexy export makes Oz nigh on brilliant.

The 31-year-old Canberra native's impressive CV includes winning Miss Australia, starring in Neighbours, becoming an MTV presenter and changing the way she kisses forever, in that her smooches now belong solely to her husband, Example.

If that's not enough to leave you sobbing into your Fosters, she's also hanging up her bikinis for good and her shoot in this month's FHM could very well be her last ever.

But don't be too disheartened, dear reader. Married life has led her to move over to good old Blighty.

Horray!
