Carley Watts, the British underwear model, surprised fans when she announced that she is converting to Islam and will follow the religion's veiled conservative lifestyle, as she fell for her Tunisian lifeguard boyfriend Mohammed Salah.

Watts, 24, told the Daily Mail she will become Muslim and move to the coastal city of Monastir in Tunisia with her daughter Alannah, 2, so she can marry Salah, 25.

Watts said in an interview with The Sun that her friends think she's "mad" for leaving an industry that has given her a lavish life, trading it in for a way of life that does not appear to fit her.

"They can't get their heads round me going from being the last girl standing on every night out to wearing a veil and converting to Islam," Watts said. "Meeting Mohammed has made me really look at my life. I don’t want to be going wild, flashing my boobs and falling out of nightclubs anymore."

Watts is looking forward to the extreme change.

"We couldn’t be more different," Watts said of her and her boyfriend. "As a glamour model I show off my boobs, dress up in kinky outfits and generally act outrageous. Mohammed is solely focused on family life. If I'm drunk I like to take my clothes off and recently I walked all the way home from a nightclub totally starkers. I love going to raves and staying up dancing all night in little tutus and bra tops. Now my life is set to change beyond belief. I don’t have any worries, though."

Twitter fans have not reacted well to the news.

"Why does the phrase 'This is not going to end well ' seems so apt in relation to this news story?" Lee John Barnes tweeted.

Another added: "Carley Watts goes from glam to Islam. Says its peaceful religion with no fighting. Tell the Egyptians that."

"Model wants to cover up and convert to Islam after falling in love with a Tunisian guy. What a loss for pag3 readers," added another user on Twitter.

Despite the criticism, Watts says she will be happy with her boyfriend as a Muslim.

"When I’m with Mohammed I feel so content, calm and happy. I know he’s the kind, family man for me," she said.
