When shooting a calendar to raise money for a very worthwhile cause, the cheapest location and crew is usually the best way to do it.
But we can't really see Tamara Ecclestone freezing her tootsies off in a cold warehouse or studio somewhere in the UK when there's a perfectly nice Greece island going spare.
So that's what our favourite heiress did, as she boarded her private jet to the affluent island of Santorini to shoot her calendar for Great Ormond Street hospital.

At the cost of probably a few thousands pounds, she also flew out her make-up artist Gary Cockerill as well as her stylist as they converged on the sunny paradise for a few days of flashbulbs in the sun.

The slender star stretched her arms and back, and even attempted a few push-ups off a handy wall.
Her short work-out done, she donned a dressing gown to let the make-up artists work their magic.
