Daniele Lloyd has revealed her new career direction, saying she plans to sell parts of her body as digital art to make money.
The star, who recently welcomed a daughter with husband Michael O’Neill, explained her plans to use NFTs (non-fungible tokens) – a type of non-interchangeable unit of data stored on a blockchain that can be stored or traded in line.
Danielle explained to OKAY!: “I will be selling each of my body parts as NFTS digital art. So someone can buy my behind, someone else can own my feet. And they can be bought and sold on the market, like other NFTS.
“My body will be mapped in HD quality and split into separate images which are all 1/1 works of art.”

When asked why she decided to go this route, the mum-of-five explained: “People have been selling photos of me, whether paparazzi photos or leaked intimate photos, for years. Technology now allows us to take ownership.
“I want to make the most of it. Having someone leak private photos is absolutely horrible, no one should have to go through that.”
Danielle is sure there will be demand for her new concept, adding: “I think it’s super exciting and I know a lot of my fans will want them.”
The star added that she will have her “entire” body digitally mapped.
Danielle also explained that she has invested in other NFTs, adding, “I’m not going to say exactly which NFT investments I have. But there is a brand new one whose art I love called Gold Panda Club. It’s those cute diamond pandas. I want to have it.”
She explained that she thought her body’s NFTs could sell for a huge amount of money.
Danielle added: “It’s just a digital photo. But you own it. I know, it’s really hard to understand at first! But many NFTs now sell for millions. I don’t know how much my bodily NFTs will sell for, but as an entrepreneur you have to keep doing new things to stay current.”
