Mellisa, 21, from Gravesend, Kent
Stunning Mellisa was surprised but thrilled to make it into the final three.
She said: “I’m not what people think of as a typical glamour model. I’ve got pale skin and dark hair and a few tattoos. My 32C boobs aren’t huge either, but I think by getting to the final I’ve proved that anyone can look and feel sexy.
“When Lucy Collett won last year she broke the mould with her red hair and gorgeous curves. I want to represent a different kind of look too.”
Mellisa, who works as a DJ, loves punk and rock music, and has even found herself jumping around in a mosh pit to her favourite bands.
She said: “I love going to music festivals like Download, which is for rock music fans, and Reading. My favourite bands are Green Day and the Deftones.
“I’ve DJ’d in Berlin and at a boat party in Paris, which was really cool.
“I also enjoy travelling. The best places I’ve been to are LA and Australia, although I love sightseeing in Spain too.”
But Mellisa also wants to use her potential Page 3 fame to help girls who are lacking in self esteem because they don’t fit the mould either.
She said: “Winning Page 3 Idol would be just incredible, it’s the pinnacle of modelling. I want to be an ambassador for Page 3, and I want to show young girls that you don’t have to look a certain way to feel sexy or confident.
“I didn’t have much self confidence when I was younger, but modelling has helped me to love who I am and what I look like, and I want to help other young women feel like that too.”

Rae, 22, from Manchester
Gorgeous Rae couldn’t believe she’d made the final, after it took years for her to pluck up the courage for her to enter the contest.
She said: “I’ve always loved Page 3 but I never thought I’d get anywhere in the competition. A friend encouraged me to enter and I’m so glad they did, it’s been an amazing experience so far.
“I want to thank all the people that voted for me, and also my brilliant parents. They have been so supportive, my dad’s been telling all his friends to vote for me too.”
After putting her uni course in art and design on hold last year, Rae tried her hand at shop work and managing a restaurant before deciding to concentrate on modelling.
At 5ft 4ins the petite brunette reckons she has a big, bubbly personality to make up for her lack of height.
She said: “I love a night out with my friends and to catch up with the girls, but I also love a night in with pizza, popcorn and a film wearing my onesie. You can’t beat it.”
If she won Page 3 Idol then Rae would have no hesitation in following in the footsteps of Help for Heroes patron Peta Todd in supporting the charity for injured troops.
She said: “Both my parents were in the TA and my uncle is in the army. He’s served in Afghanistan so I know how worrying it can be for a family when they have someone out there.
“I’d write him letters to tell him what I’ve been up to and I’m so proud of him and all our troops
“After all they’ve done for us the very least I can do is to help out with Help for Heroes whenever and wherever I can.”

Jessica, 21, from Camberley
Beautiful Jessica is really excited at the prospect of fulfilling her dream to be a Page 3 girl.
She said: “It’s just amazing, it’s something I’ve wanted to do for ages now, and I can’t believe I’m in the final three.”
As well as her job as an events manager, Jessica also loves football - both playing and watching the beautiful game.
She said: “I was in a ladies team playing central midfield, but now I tend to go and watch my team, Tottenham Hotspur, with my dad and my brothers. I love going to the match as everyone is really friendly, although people are often a bit shocked to find out I love footy.”
Her other passion is baking, and she admits she has an ‘insane’ amount of recipe books.
“My speciality is cupcakes with buttercream,” she revealed. “My friends are always asking me to make their birthday cakes.”
If she were to win the competition Jessica’s really keen to take part in charity work, something she’s had some experience of in her day job.
She said: “Being a Page 3 girl would be such a privilege, it’s something I’ve always wanted to do."
