Christyne Remnant, who has found a new career as a model . Photographed her at her home in Southampton, Hampshire. 21 March 2014. See swns story SWGRAN. A glamorous grandmother told yesterday (Fri) how she ditched her job as a company director and is now a successful MODEL- aged 69. Mother-of-four Christyne (corr) Remnant had a 35 year career running a property firm with her husband Douglas. But after her children flew the nest she decided to ‘try something different’ – and sent in a bikini snap to charity catwalk auction. Her new career took off and she has since modelled for brands including LK Bennett and Phase One . Christyne, who is 5ft 2ins and a size 10 to 12, never imagined that she would become a pin-up.
