‘I quit my 9-5 after dreaming a porn star told me to sell her breast implants online’
OnlyFans like many others, Natasha set up Fans Utopia, connecting with porn stars and offering to sell their used underwear and goods to interested fans. In an exclusive chat with Daily Star, the businesswoman described the unusual origins of her entrepreneurial adventure and suggested that there was a strong market for adult stars' used memorabilia.“In the dream was one of my good friends who, when I was younger, became a porn star for some time,” she recalled.“I’d noticed a lot of porn stars, when they get implants they get multiple breast implants and a lot of them like to save them for some reason.“And she collected all her implants, so in the dream she was giving them to me and saying, ‘hey, aren’t you going to put this on your website?’”Working in the fashion industry at the time, Natasha was puzzled about her friend’s offer and understandably had not considered breast implants to fit alongside her usual assortment of products.But, she described how this bizarre moment quickly led to the realisation that there was a gap in the market for the retail of porn stars' used items.So, soon after the out of body experience, Natasha launched her business and eventually went full-time selling adult stars' “memorabilia” in March this year.The mission, she told Daily Star, is to ensure that no request is off-limits for fans who want to get close to their favourite adult personalities.“There’s nothing off-limits; as long as the star touches it the customer will buy it, and that’s amazing to me.

Royal Family 'worried about Meghan Markle's next move' after tense Jubilee appearance
Lizzie Cundy has claimed members of The Royal Family have shared their concerns ahead of Meghan Markle's first public debut in two years.The television presenter has explained that members of the family are more concerned about Meghan than they are of Prince Andrew stepping out in public.Andrew stepped down from public life ahead of settling his civil court case after being accused of sexual assault by Virginia Guiffree, who claims she was just 17 – Andrew has strongly denied all allegations.Meghan, 40, stepped down from royal life in January 2020 and relocated to California and has since dropped several bombshell allegations against her in-laws.Speaking exclusively to the Daily Star, the television presenter said: "I know that the palace are very worried, they're more worried about her than Andrew because they're worried about what will be said."They're worried about what will be used in interviews or in the memoirs."The other royals are very concerned about Meghan being there and the ramifications of her being there, what will Meghan be doing next?"The original WAG added: "I don't think it's very fair on our Queen to be honest, I think she should have stayed away and been with her father."I think that would have been the right thing to do and I think she would have won a lot of sympathy with a lot of people if she'd done the right thing."Discussing Andrew potentially appearing at the service of Thanksgiving for his mother on Friday June 3, Lizzie said: "I do think Andrew will make an appearance, it's the Queen's wishes."We all know whatever he may have done, he's her son, he's always been known as her favourite son and she wants him to be somehow part of it."Whether that is the right thing to do is another matter but
