Popular family cartoon character Marge Simpson has been given a radical make-over for a new revealing "photo-spread" for a men's magazine.

The star of hit American TV series The Simpsons has ditched her usual down-to-earth motherly image for a glamorous set of pin-up images for MAXIM - with sexy Marge even adorning the front cover of the British magazine.

Editor-in-chief KEITH BLANCHARD says, "It wasn't that different from working with a live cover model, except we used sketches, not photos.

"The cover is a radical departure for a men's magazine. Marge is the sexiest mama in all of toon town, especially with that croaky voice."
