A rare contact sheet of photos of a playful Madonna during an early British shoot has emerged for sale.

The Queen Of Pop, whose music career has now entered its fifth decade, posed for London photographer Peter Anderson in Soho in 1983.

Sporting raven locks, the singer, who is now aged 62, is shown wearing a hat and dark clothing in the images where she mixes up her facial expressions.

Aged 25, she had the world at her feet having just released her first album, Madonna, featuring the singles Holiday and Lucky Star.

Anderson, a former NME staff photographer, is selling the 36ins by 28ins contact sheet, featuring 30 photos, with London-based auctioneers Bonhams.

The images of the star are expected to fetch a tidy £900 when they go up for sale on Wednesday morning in London, according to Claire Tole-Moir, specialist at Bonhams.

She said: ‘The contact sheet on offer was taken in 1983 in Soho, London while the photographer Peter Anderson was a staff photographer at the NME, as well as contributing to The Face, ID Magazine and Rolling Stone.
