A DINNERLADY turned lapdancer is revealing all again - this time in a new book about her extraordinary life story.
Debby Hughes was married with three children when she suddenly decided to pursue a career in lapdancing in the late 1990s.
Starting as a hostess at the old Sweeties club in St Helens, she went on to form the Pink Pussycats - her own lapdancing group.
And her no-holds-barred book Lapping It Up - written with the help of her cousin and published author Conrad Jones - reveals all about what really went on behind the scenes!
Debby, 47, who grew up in Leicester Drive, Eccleston, said: “I was just sat at home watching daytime television one day when I saw three lapdancers on a chat show. I suddenly thought ‘they’re no different from me’ and decided it was something I’d like to do.
“I was very different from most of the other lapdancers though - I was a 35-year-old married mother-of-three!
“Obviously it’s not the type of work that women normally go into at that age, so I started out as a hostess at Sweeties before becoming a lapdancer.”
She continued: “Me and the Pink Pussycats toured all over the North West too. We did everything from sharing a stage in Blackpool with Bernard Manning to teaching a Page Three model the Full Monty routine.
“We also appeared at the Isle of Man TT three years running and helped to raise funds for breast cancer patients via a Pink Ball at the Thistle Hotel in Haydock.”
Lapping It Up, which has been published by Gerricon, has already received several five-star reviews on the Amazon website - where it can be bought online.
And Debby, a mother to Clinton, 28, Charlotte, 22, and Grant, 20, not only reckons it would appeal to a broad spectrum of readers, but is already considering a sequel.
She added: “Lapping It Up is filled with amusing anecdotes but I think it would especially appeal to women who feel stuck in a humdrum lifestyle. Because I was a little bit older when I started lapdancing, my eyes were well and truly open to everything that went on.
“I feel like I’ve seen all sides of life now. I loved my time as a lapdancer and had a good laugh along the way - but I can grow old gracefully now!”
