Lynn Kelly has revealed her boyfriend's friends like to share lingerie pictures of her in their WhatsApp group as "locker room banter".

The top model has been dating childhood sweetheart Robert Barr for 11 years, but it looks like his pals still haven't got used to her day job, which includes everything from lingerie photocalls to fashion shows.

"It would be if the lads' WhatsApp group gets a lingerie or a swimsuit picture and then it's sent around the group but he doesn't care. He knows it's just my job. It's just locker room banter," she told the Diary.

"He's very supportive. We both just treat our jobs like a job. I treat my job the same as anyone else's."

Lynn, who also has an agent in London, has been trying to transition into the next chapter of her career and has flown to the UK in recent months for screen tests for acting and presenting jobs.

"I've been reading scripts for some acting and presenting stuff. It's all based in the UK, so that's what I've been tied up with. We'll see what happens," she said.

"It's something I've had an interest in for a while now but the opportunity never came up. Then when it did I was like, 'Yeah, OK'. I have an agent over there. I've been doing some screen tests and they found my accent all right - they can understand me."

If ever there was a permanent move across the pond on the horizon, she said her long-term boyfriend would likely come with her, although she's famously independent, saying she's "not waiting around for any ring", adding that her parents were never married and have enjoyed a relationship that has spanned several decades.
