IT will be a sight guaranteed to make any red-blooded male’s pulse race.

On Monday in London, 300 attractive, young women will strip off into their bikinis to be sprayed in one of the most ambitious spray-tanning events in history.

And a Huddersfield woman will be at the forefront.

Organisers hope the event featuring TV celebrity and former The Only Way Is Essex star Amy Childs, and Enigma from Gladiator, will be a resounding success and earn them a Guinness World Records title.

One of those taking part will be Jodie Lister, who runs a salon in Waterloo called lovebeauti.me.

So, when the buzzer sounds at noon on Monday, the 39-year-old from Fenay Bridge, will leap into action with her spray gun and begin spraying her model.

The record attempt will last from noon to 1pm and was the idea of Ali Ineson, director of London-based RI Media, which is organising the event to be held at Professional Beauty’s exhibition at London ExCel.

Ani Sultan of RI Media, said: “We are closing in on our target, it’s been half-term and so lots of colleges have been closed, but we are confident come Monday we should have 300 sprayers and their accompanying models.

“Ali had the idea as a way of celebrating the 4% growth in the tanning sector and that 1% of the country’s workforce is now employed in the beauty industry.”

Jodie said: “I am really excited and proud to have been asked to take part.

“I have been spraying people for 20 years so I have done thousands of people.”

Money raised from the event will be given to the charity Wellbeing of Women.

Spray tanning was first launched during the 1960s in the United States by beauty products firm Coppertone as an alternative to UV tanning, which may cause serious health consequences such as skin cancers.

Unfortunately, the first generation of sunless products used to cause more orange than brown effect, so it was not really successful.

But the products have improved dramatically and now there are thousands of tanning studios and mobile firms offering the service.
