As it has been known, Ellie revealed through several Twitter posts back in late 2011 that she partook in at least three separate shoots for the British children and pre-teen magazine Girl Talk, which took place in June, August and October 2011.

While up until now, I was only aware of a preview image from one of the shoots she had posted to her Twitter around that time, below:

... Recently, by chance, I came across two more images that were featured in the February 2012 issue, courtesy of the official Girl Talk Facebook and Swapit blog. These have been added to the gallery Photoshoot > 2011-12 > Girl Talk.

Since she did several photo sessions for the magazine, I have had difficulty tracking down exactly which issues her photos have been published in, although based on one of her tweets, I am certain her June 2011 shoot was released in August and obviously, based on the images above, she was featured in the February 2012 issue. At the moment, I have been in search of used copies of previous issues for sale - from late 2011 to early 2012 - to buy to see if I could get more scans of Ellie, without luck. Until then, enjoy these few images and stay tuned.

That said, there is good news about the magazine in general. Future issues will be more positively feminist for our young girls of our society, focusing more on positive attributes for girls and placing less emphasis on the importance of beauty and celebrity culture after the magazine came under some criticisms for evoking these messages.
