London: Gemma Atkinson has promised that she would never strip off again.
The former Hollyoaks babe refused to pose nude for a raunchy calendar, saying that she wanted to concentrate on becoming a serious actress.
Gemma has just finished filming a lead in a romantic comedy and has three other films in the pipeline. She is even planning to go into producing.
"I'm sure you are all aware I've decided to put modelling on hold while I concentrate on my acting career," the Daily Star quoted her as saying.
"For this reason I haven't done my calendar this year.
"However, I know how well-received my previous ones were and I want to thank you all for buying them and supporting me.
"I've just finished filming the lead female role in a romantic comedy with Richard E Grant and Jill Halfpenny called How To Stop Being A Loser and it was great!
"I'm in talks at the moment to make three more films this spring. I'm even considering producing," the actress added.
