The Week: Advertising News - Wonderbra's Green quits

The woman who was chosen to front Wonderbra's "real women" advertising campaign has quit after bosses told her to lose weight and drop two dress sizes.

Katie Green, a former New Look shop assistant, was persuaded by Wonderbra to join Premier Model Management, which also has Kelly Brook and Myleene Klass on its books.
