KELLY Brook celebrated turning 40 in style as she partied Magic Mike Live guys and enjoyed a striptease as she was showered in pink money.
The presenter, who wore a hot pink mini dress with a bejewelled police cap was treated to the show by her pals at Heart radio.
Taking to Instagram to share her delight with followers, she wrote: “This is like the best birthday I’ve ever had in my whole entire life.
“I was like 60% thrilled and 40% mortified. It’s been absolutely insane, I’m just recovering actually.”
The topless hunks danced around Kelly, who is set to turn 40 on November 23.
Clearly thrilled with her surprise guests, Kelly posed with the dancers for a fun birthday picture.
Later she took over the station’s Instagram stories to share her eye candy with followers.
Grinning and donning her sparkly naughty 4o hat she said: ” Hello, it’s Kelly here. This is my naughty 40 party here.
“I’d like to join you in the celebrations, we’ve got balloons, we’ve got food, cake, fun people and we’re gonna have the best time!”
This comes as she opened up about stepping back into the limelight after taking a few years out.
She revealed that as she stood in front of cameras, as she had done for years, the photographers were shouting at her to “breathe in”.
Speaking to The Sun she said: “They knew me as skinny, and all of a sudden I’d turned up with bigger boobs, a bigger bum, bigger arms – just a lot bigger, so I think it was a shock for them as well!”
Kelly had become a size 16, thanks to enjoying life in the Kent countryside, but said the red carpet experience was a “wake up call”.
She said: “It dawned on me then that even though I felt the same, I was obviously bigger and maybe I should do something about it,” she says.
Since then, Kelly has made several lifestyle changes, losing 2st and going down to a size 12.
t’s been a gradual process, which has seen her take up running three times a week and following a SlimFast eating plan to achieve her “Size Sexy” all in time for her milestone 40th birthday later this month.
“The Size Sexy thing really resonated with me because if you get to an age where you’re fitting into a large or extra large and you actually feel really happy and healthy, then why should there be a stigma?

The pressure built up and Kelly had to step away for a couple of years, but two years ago she made her triumphant return[/caption]
“Although I’ve lost weight on my SlimFast journey, I’m still not the thinnest I’ve ever been in my life. But nor would I ever want to go back there, because some of my thinnest times were also my saddest.”
After a fairly turblent time in the spotligth, it was the job offer at Heart at the start of this year that coaxed her back into the public eye, and in radio she’s found a new career she loves and can see a real future in. Turning 40 puts the cherry on top of her new beginning.
“I feel like I’m finally growing up. I had Peter Pan syndrome, running around like a teenager. I’d go home and see my old school friends and they all seemed so grown-up, married with children while I was still single, hadn’t quite found The One.”

“I feel that now I’m hitting 40, a lot of that drama and stress has kind of melted away. I was always torn over what to do and I had a lot of guilt, but now I’m actually like: ‘It’s not the be all and end all if I don’t get married and I don’t have children.’
“If I do, it’s amazing and I’m excited for that. But if I don’t, it’s fine. When you hit a milestone birthday like this you do start thinking about your career, your relationships, where you live, those debts you’ve still not paid off.”
