Danielle Lloyd has revealed she is planning to quit the public eye and focus on her family.

The 36-year-old glamour model and mother-of-four has said she and her electrician husband Michael O'Neill are starting a property development company, but she is also sharing glamour shots through a subscription website.

Lloyd told new! magazine: "I've tried to step away from being in the public eye because a lot of negativity comes from that. I do love being in the industry but there comes a time when you've got to put yourself and your family first.

"I didn't want to be away all the time working, so me and Michael have started our own property development business. People aren't going to want to know about my life for the rest of my life."

But Lloyd also opened up about sharing glamour shots of herself on an X-Rated subscription site after setting up an account in October last year.

She said: “Obviously a lot of the lads mags aren't around anymore, and even the daily women's mags seem to have gone. A lot of the stuff has gone online now, and that's why I love using OnlyFans... I'm using it to speak to all my fans that have been following me for the past decade and also my brand new fans and subscribers.”

Lloyd added: “In the night, that's when I do my content for my OnlyFans, when the children go to bed. But I also do some content in the gym because people like to see what I'm doing in there, and also when I go to the spa looking sexy in my bikini.”

The model revealed she has found a renewed confidence in her body after undergoing a breast augmentation, liposuction and a Brazilian bum lift at a Turkish clinic in September 2019.

Lloyd - who suffered a miscarriage last year - had been planning to travel to Dubai this summer to undergo a gender selection fertility procedure in pursuit of her dream to have a daughter. But due to the coronavirus pandemic the family had been forced to cancel the trip.

She said: “If it's meant to be, it will be.”

Lloyd rose to fame as a beauty queen, crowned Miss England in 2004 and Miss Great Britain in 2006. But she was stripped of the Miss Great Britain title after it emerged she had entered a relationship with one of the judges, retired footballer Teddy Sherringham, 54.

They split in 2007 after she took part in Celebrity Big Brother and was accused of racism over her treatment of Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty on the show.

Lloyd and O’Neill, 33, have a two-year-old son Ronnie and she is also mother to sons Archie, nine, Harry, eight, George, six, with her footballer ex-husband Jamie O'Hara, 33.
