Danielle Mason grew up in convent with nuns before going topless for the nation

Page 3 babe Danielle Mason has opened up about her life before fame – admitting she had a uber strict upbringing.

The blonde starlet, who appeared on My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding, has told how she was raised by nuns from the age of 12.

Her parents put her in an all girls convent before she decided to go against the grain and get into topless modelling.

Danielle said: "My family were originally from Bethnal Green but then they moved out to Sandhurst.

"I was put in a convent when I was 12… it was run by nuns.

"It was all girls and run by nuns. It is probably why I turned out the way I did.

"I grew up their in this convent in Ascot before working doing airline stuff."

Danielle says it was her sister actress Jessie Wallace who helped her follow her dress of life in front of the cameras.

She continued during a 45 minute chat on Ben Hatchett's YouTube channel: "I was still doing acting on the side and I managed to get my first part in a Heath Ledger film.

"It was called The Four Feathers with Heath Ledger and Kate Hudson… but don't get excited it was a tiny part.

"I was in the trailer getting my make up done with Heath ledger – I just knew it was what I wanted to do."

Crediting Jessie for helping her get into Page 3, Danielle said: "I had work experience on EastEnders as my sister got it me.

"At the end of the week I said I wanted to be in front of the cameras not behind."

She continued: "My sister went out for dinner and we were talking about Page 3.

"Within that week I somehow met Katie Prices's agent and then I was on Page 3 with my boobs out.
