”Yvette was fantastic as always and our customers loved her once again.”
– Central Park Nightclub
“Yes all went very well indeed on Friday. The editor of the motoring section was tickled pink being squeezed into a Skoda boot with the 7 girls…. apparently made his year! I hope the girls were happy? It wasn’t an easy job and the location of a pub car park in November wearing a skimpy unitard wasn’t ideal either!! But they grinned and beared it and did a great job.”

“Yvette was very flexible i.e. obliging and a joy to work with. She was happy to fit in with the surprise element and her routine was the perfect length of time and had all the wow factor. She wasn’t daunted by the loud, appreciative crowd and carried on even though she couldn’t hear her music. She was happy to talk to me and my friends and satisfy our curiosity. I hope she felt welcomed and comfortable.”
