Page three girl Susan Shaw has died at the age of 70.
Susan, who once turned down singer Rod Stewart, died on Wednesday after a four-year battle with lung cancer.
The model’s daughter, Kim Shaw confirmed the news in a statement.
In a tribute to her mum, Kim told The Sun: ‘I’m really proud of her and her work. She travelled all over the world and met amazing people.
‘She was also good friends with Linda Lusardi and Samantha Bond.
‘Her friend told me Rod Stewart pursued her and even contacted her agent to ask her out. But she wasn’t interested.’
According to Kim, Susan caught Maggie May singer Rod’s eye in 1970 before got married to actress and model Alana Stewart in 1979.
He then married model Rachel Hunter from 1990 to 2006 before going on to marry model Penny Lancaster in 2007.
Kim went on to add that her father, Ian Drury, helped to care for Susan when she was ill.
She said they had ‘stayed friendly’ even after they had split up 20 years ago.
Susan had a really successful career in modelling. She started out doing page three shoots and continued to model until she was in her 50s.
She was even fictionalised in the 2013 film Rush, which starred Chris Hemsworth as James Hunt.
Susan and James were photographed together during a photo shoot after he won the World Championship in 1976.
