Abbey Clancy was named the winner of the BBC's Strictly Come Dancing on Saturday (21 Dec.) night, earning her and professional dancer Aljaz Skorjanec the glitter ball trophy. Clancy emerged victorious from an all-female final, beting actress Natalie Gumede, newsreader Susanna Reid and singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor to the grand prize.

BBC Breakfast presenter Reid had been the bookie's favourite to take home the award, but after a valiant display from Clancy in the final episode of the season, the viewers at home voted Mrs Peter Crouch to be the Dancing Queen, also preventing Reid from being the third BBC presenter to win the contest.

Yesterday (December 1st 2013) saw 'Waterloo Road''s get voted out of the competition in their tenth week after landing in the bottom two with Ashley Taylor Dawson and Ola Jordan following their lively 'Lion King' routine. They performed a samba to the popular Disney hit 'I Just Can't Wait To Be King' complete with lion inspired costumes and, alas, face paint.

She might have been releasing a book last night (November 15), but there was nothing bookish about the behavior of supermodel Kate Moss and her guests in London, with more than a few stars being spotted leaving 50 St James somewhat dishevelled in the early hours. It had been a busy day for Moss, who'd been signing copies of her book earlier in the day at the Marc Jacobs store in Mayfair, but she was in no mood to let tiredness put her off partying - and neither were the rest of the revellers. Cara Develingne was among those seen leaving the venue somewhat worse for wear in the early hours, whilst a host of British stars also were in raucous spirits, including Noel Gallagher, football player Peter Crouch and girlfriend Abbey Clancy, Florence Welch, Pixie Geldof and her dad Bob, Stella McCartney, Radio One DJ Nick Grimshaw, Christopher Biggins and Jo Wood.

Model Abbey Clancy and Sarah Harding were among those taking to the catwalk for the Lingerie London Fashion Show at the Old Billingsgate Market in London last night (October 24, 2012). The celebrity models were showcasing underwear for lingerie labels Agent Provocateur and Atsuko Kudo.
Clancy, a 26-year-old model and mother-of-one, wore a gold basque and matching knickers before returning to the catwalk later in the evening wearing red-topped stockings and gold heels. The Liverpudlian was watched on by proud husband Peter Crouch, who understandably beamed with delight. As mentioned, Abbey wasn't the only star to appear at the fundraiser, with television presenter and model Zara Martin also making an appearance.
