STUNNING Jo-Emma Larvin may not have five colours in her hair.
But Joe Calzaghe’s girlfriend was Obviously the right choice for McFly’s latest video when she agreed to don blue extensions.
The model and actress, 27, has taken on the female lead in the boy band’s promo flick for new single Lies, playing a futuristic music queen.
And it was hard graft as she spent two gruelling days this week filming scenes that involved martial arts and fire-throwing stunts as well as aerial wire work.
34DD Jo-Emma told Wales on Sunday last night: “I was so thrilled to be asked to star in McFly’s video.
“It’s a great song and video – and I was chuffed to play the lead female role, especially as I get to act in some dramatic scenes.”
And she was glad to get rid of the hair extensions once she was done on set.
Jo-Emma said: “I had blue hair extensions in and I had to rip them out. I could not keep blue hair, I had another shoot to do.”
She was one of hundreds on set, stopping only to say a quick ‘hello!’ to McFly.
As well as other small acting roles, she has also designed a range of jeans and is keen to make animal documentaries.
But despite her blossoming career, she says she and Joe, 36, still have their feet firmly on the ground.
“I’m a taking-the-dog-for-a-walk-up-the-nearest mountain-in-my-wellies sort girl,” she said.
“We don’t do premieres. We can’t be bothered traipsing up red carpets.
“When Joe’s preparing for a match it’s a full-time job for both of us. He eats a special healthy diet. I cook all his meals for him. When he can’t eat cakes and biscuits, I don’t either. When he has to give up alcohol, I quit with him.
“We’re just an average couple doing what normal couples do.”
And even after being together for more than four years, Jo-Emma says the spark between her the super middleweight champ is very much alive.
She said: “The chemistry between us is so strong you can feel it. I love dressing up for him.
“He goes wild for silk nighties, wisps of things.
“He’s also mad about towering high heels worn with very short skirts, the miniest of mini, and maybe a tiny little vest top.
“He also likes me in a slinky, ultra-sophisticated, clinging evening gown, something chic.”
But unlike other WAGs she says she doesn’t splash out on designer clothes – despite Joe being worth a staggering £10m and having a global property portfolio.
She said: “Boxers, even champions, don’t earn anything like the insane amounts of money footballers do.
“I’ve got a couple of designer handbags. That’s it.
“I’m crazy about shoes, but mine are from Dune and Faith, ordinary high street shops. I certainly can’t afford to swan about and snap up dozens of pairs of Jimmy Choos.”
Despite having to get up to all sorts of difficult stunts for the music video, Jo-Emma says she’s not a big fan of the gym or physical exertion.
She said: “My key to keeping my weight down is my golden retriever Sonny. I walk him several times a day, as fast as I can. That’s the only exercise I need.
“I think the biggest mistake girls make is to starve themselves all day. That way, by evening they’re ravenous and can’t stop stuffing themselves.
“The best thing is to eat regularly, not obsess about food. Don’t deprive yourself of anything. You’ll only crave it.”
Lies will be released next month.
