A FORMER Manchester United player's wife has taken her clothes off to point up the benefits of leading a healthy lifestyle.

Julie Neville, the wife of former Reds player Phil, laid herself bare to help launch a flagship wellness business this weekend in Manchester.

The 38 year old mum of two, stripped for the pictures to highlight the benefits of products and lifestyle, available at her new Win Naturally store in the city's Arndale.

WAG Julie, who is a patron of Manchester Children's Hospital said: "The idea behind the naked photo shoot was to highlight there are ways to be the way we want to be but naturally – the way nature intended.

"Although I was nervous about stripping for the camera I really felt it captured the essence of my business."

Julie launched the business in 2011,after suffering a long period of ill health that left her fearing for her life. Deciding to take control she searched for natural alternatives and altered her diet and fitness routines – within 9 months she was off all prescribed medication and feeling better than ever.

The Neville's will host the launch weekend (Aug 16 and Aug 17), which will include a live DJ, children's entertainer and male model Charlie Powell.
