Moisturise ten times a day, avoid cats and DON'T open jars: Hand model earns thousands posing in TV ads and magazines but has never shown her face... until now!

  • Hand model Emily Grimson, 25, from Shropshire, gets paid £100 an hour
  • Stars in ads for Bosch, the Disney Channel and magazine features 
  • Former beauty writer moisturising her hands up to ten times a day 

She's been photographed hundreds of times and starred in magazines and TV advertisements but you won't have seen her face - until now.

Emily Grimson, from Shopshire, is one of Britain's most successful models yet it's not her stunning face that's her fortune - it's her perfect hands.

And the 25-year-old has only been modelling for a year but has already built a lucrative full-time career making up to £100 an hour.

She's on course to become a hand supermodel after her high-earning hands featured in product videos for Bosch, adverts on the Disney Channel and advertorials in the Sunday Times Style magazine. 

Not one to put her assets at risk, Emily, a former beauty writer, moisturises her hands up to ten times a day to keep them looking their best.

Emily said: 'I used to write the beauty pages for a bridal magazine but everyone would mention how lovely my hands are. 

'I started hand modelling around about May last year and have been doing it full time since autumn.

'Work can vary; sometimes I work for one client for a couple of weeks, sometimes I do odd days here and there for various different brands and products - no week or month is the same.

'I love it, you can make anything from £100 a day to £100 an hour, and if you film a commercial, you may even be paid a buyout fee.'

Emily, who is signed with BMA Models, was encouraged to give hand modelling a shot after a nail technician complimented her hands while giving her a manicure.

Since signing up for the modelling agency last year she has posed with everything from designer bags to electrical appliances, and always goes to great lengths to protect her hands.

Emily said: 'I do have a strict routine to keep my hands looking their best.

'I moisturise them about ten times a day and always use SPF to protect them, even when the sun isn't shining.

'I exfoliate them once a week and always wear a strengthener to keep my nails from snapping.

'Sometimes I ask other people to open bottles or packets for me when I have a big job coming up as I don't want to risk any scratches or breakages.

'Oh, and I won't let my boyfriend get a kitten, despite the fact that he loves them, as a manicurist on a job warned me they carry a major scratching risk.'
