“ Brand: Ricky Whittle / Type: Wall Calander „
I have always really liked having calendars around the house, and normally have at least two or three! I like to have a slimline one that I can write the usual things like birthdays and nursery holidays on, but I also really like picture calendars - the softly drawn Me To You Bears being my usual favourite! However, this year I saw that my idol, Ricky Whittle, was releasing his own official calendar and as I absolutely adore him I just knew that it was going to be the first thing I asked for on my Christmas list!
Ricky Whittle is probably most famous for his role of Calvin Valentine on the soap Hollyoaks, and more recently his fantastic performances on Strictly Come Dancing (which I just had to watch when I found out he would be in it!). In previous years Ricky Whittle would just appear on one month of the Hollyoaks calendar so I was thrilled to bits when it was announced he was making his own!
The calendar is an A3 size wall calendar and is held together with spiral binding at the top, with a small ring in which to hang it with. The cover of the calendar shows a chest and head shot of Ricky against a black background which gives off a really good effect, with the name and year at the top is thin white capital letters.
January - this picture is similar to the front cover although it is a different pose.
February - this picture shows Ricky completely naked (covered modestly by a sheet) on a bed against a white backdrop.
March - I love this picture as it is a really natural shot of Ricky laughing and he is dressed in a white vest and jeans....YUM!
April - this month shows a very wet Ricky!
May - another lovely shot of Ricky in his jeans and white vest, this time with an open white shirt
June - this shot looks like it was maybe on a beach at sunset with Ricky crouched on a rock
July - a cheeky shot of Ricky in his pants and thats it!
August - a really fun shot of Ricky falling backwards into a swimming pool in a dinner suit.
September - another sunset shot with more of a moody pose - nice!
October - a large headshot in which he has a bit of stubble and he is staring right at me (haha!!)
November - another just pants shot, this time the picture has a sepia effect.
December - this is a very naked shot where you see a full body view.....just from the side so not too rude!!
On the reverse of the calendar you will see all twelve months along with an extra picture of the gorgeous Ricky! This calendar is not one that you can write on as the numbers are quite small at the bottom of each page, but this is an added bonus for me as it means more picture space!! One thing I was really surprised at with this calendar is the quality of the paper, it is really quite flimsy compared to many other celebrity calendars I have seen. It appears as though it is thick and glossy when it is on the wall however so that is the only thing that matters.
If you hadn't guessed already, I absolutely ADORE this calendar, and can't thank my friend enough for buying it for me - even though she said December is bordering on pornographic and she was embarrassed wrapping it. This calendar is an absolute must for any Ricky Whittle fan! I had initially planned to hang this on my bedroom wall, but I love it so much it has pride of place in my living room and will be transferred to my bedroom in some way when the year is out! Fingers crossed for a 2012 calendar!!
You can now purchase the Ricky Whittle Official Calendar on Amazon from £3.25 - what a bargain!
Five out of five stars just isn't enough!!
Thank you for reading my review :)
