Daily Star drops page 3 topless photos after 50 years

The end of the traditional Page 3 girl in British tabloids is nigh.

he Daily Star has confirmed it will stop publishing photos of topless women in the newspaper.

It becomes the latest publication to announce the end of the feature, following The Sun who scrapped it in 2015.

The Daily Star will continue to included photos of young women on its pages but they will no longer be topless.

Editor Jonathan Clark said: ‘The Daily Star is always looking to try new things and improve.

‘In that spirit, we’ve listened to reader feedback and are currently trialling a covered-up version of page 3.’

Only the Sunday Sport will continue to have topless women on its pages.

Previous Daily Star owner Richard Desmond had rejected calls to remove topless women from its pages.

He said in 2015: ‘The Daily Star is proud to continue the great British page 3 tradition.

‘It brightens the day for our readers during tough times and has launched many successful careers.

“We will continue to listen to what our readers want and put a smile on their faces with our lovely, bright, talented and independent young ladies.’

Changing attitudes and pressure from readers has seen new Daily Star owner Reach decide it is time to remove topless models from the newspaper.
