A glamour model has decided to embark on a new future and 'find the real me' after being baptised in the sea.
Manchester-born Emma McKay, 29, who now lives in Cornwall, caused a stir on a beauty spot beach made famous in a film as she took to the ocean for the religious ceremony.
Emma wore a wetsuit for the ceremony at Porthpean, Cornwall, where the Richard Curtis film About Time was filmed.
The glamour model who has appeared in Nuts and Zoo magazines said that she has coped with bullying as a child, ended up being drawn into a party lifestyle.
Yet despite posing for risque pictures, she confesses to always feeling a spiritual presence in her life
She said: 'I was bullied through primary school and high school then rebelled and lived a very wild life from my teens up as well as having hectic, late night demanding fast paced jobs.' 
'My jobs mainly involved working with drunken people and I was in some messy situations but it always felt like someone was looking out for me, it wasn't my mum, step dad, dad or step mum as I was very independent from my late teens due to family and life situations.'
Emma, who was baptised by Reverend Mike Marshall, from the Holy Trinity Church, St Austell, and congregation member Kevin Bray added that Christianity had helped her overcome her demons.
'By finding Christ and following Jesus, I have now been able to start letting go of the past and I'm finally finding the real me.'
She took to Twitter to announce her new direction today, posting: 'Want to now share this with you all.. I was baptised yesterday & what an amazing, beautiful day it was too #blessed'
Her followers were quick to congratulate her, all adding the hashtag #wetwednesday to refer to the ritual.
On her website, Emma describes herself as a 'published versatile model of many styles including Commercial, Fashion and Glamour through to tasteful Artistic Nude'. 
Her role models include Caprice, Kate Moss and Katie Price but she is now managing her own photography studio as well as modelling. 
Adult baptisms are often called a 'believer's baptism' and unlike a baby's christening, where holy water is sprinkled on the infant's head, the person involved is fully immersed in water.
Emma's baptism attracted quite a crowd on the Porthpean beach, which recently featured in the director's moving new film. 
She was baptised today in Porthpean, Cornwall, where the Richard Curtis movie About Time was filmed

The model shows no signs of wanting to change her main career, however, and still posts revealing snaps on her Twitter feed.
