Singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor and TV presenter Caroline Flack have teamed up to tell cancer exactly what they think of it.
The stars, along with girl group Little Mix, have posed for a set of stunning and defiant photos shot by renowned celebrity photographer Jason Bell.
The pictures, showing the women with powerful messages painted onto different parts of their bodies, have been taken to encourage women to sign up to Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life this summer and raise vital funds to beat the disease.
Murder On The Dancefloor singer Sophie looks stunning in the images wearing a strapless black mini-dress, which shows of her slender legs.
On her arm is written the gusty message ‘Beat it cancer’, while her look is completed with sexy messy looking hair and pink lips.
Another shot of the 33-year-old shows her wearing a backless dress with the same slogan written across her arm and neck, while she's pushing her hair to one side.
Discussing why she is taking part in the campaign, Sophie said: ‘Cancer has sadly touched my family, like so many others, and that is why I am so proud to be supporting Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life this year.
‘I’d urge every woman out there to send a defiant message to cancer, by signing up to a Race for Life event now. If everyone gets involved by taking part and fundraising I believe that one day we will beat this awful disease that affects us all and we will win the battle.

Download 'Young Blood' demo for free
On 27 March 2013
Sophie posted yesterday on her official website. She said she's nearly finished her new album and decided to give us Young Blood demo for free:
How are you all? I hope you’re keeping well and
that you like my new-look website. I wanted to freshen it up, as I’ve
nearly finished making my new record - album number 5, blimey! - and it
seemed apt to give everything a new start.
I can’t wait to share
the new music with you. I’m really excited about it. It’s not a dance
record, or a pop record, but something a bit different. I still love
dance and pop music and I will be doing more of that further down the
line but sometimes you’ve got to challenge yourself a bit by trying
something new. Let’s go on an adventure together!
I wanted to
give you something as a thank you for your ongoing support and to give
you a taste of what’s to come later this year, so here’s a free download
of a demo version of a song from the album. It’s called Young Blood and
was written with Ed Harcourt who is making my record with me. You can
download it at the top of this page.
As ever, I’ll be keeping you posted on the website and my Facebook, Twitter and VK
pages. I really do appreciate having such bright, loyal, lovely people
as my fans. You have been so phenomenal in your enthusiasm and passion
and I know I’m a lucky girl. The new album is for you.
Here’s to a wonderful rest of 2013.
See you soon, Sophie
I confess I can't wait to listen to the new album. I believe it's time for a change! So go to SEB.net to download it! The song is amazing!
I can't believe that 10 years ago, I started a real adventure in the world web. I had completely no idea what HTML or webdesign meant and never believed I would get this far.
Running Sophie Online became a passion, even with its ups and downs, such as having the whole site deleted twice, which meant starting all over again. And again. I also had to move hosts, but it's been 8 years we have established our home.
I've also learnt to admire more and more the main reason of this site, our dear Sophie Ellis-Bextor. I've learnt to love her music, her words and her personality. I also think she showed me what true family is, no matter what, and that it is possible to believe in it during this age and even if you are in a business so cruel as the music industry and media can be. So I thank her for that.
During these 10 years, I've met amazing people, made great friends and had a lot of fun. And I truly believe that Sophie Online only became what it is today because I had the help of the marvellous people and fans around me. Some of these people I had opportunity to see offline too. I hope it can happen more often.
So I have nothing else to say but thank you. Thank you all for believing and trusting my work and for keep following and admiring the wonderful artist and person that Sophie is.
Here's to other 10 years! Love, Isabela
