Kelly Brook ( 23.11.79) is a well known model, television presenter and also now becoming more than an occasional actress.
Studying at the famous Italia Conti stage school in London for three years, she went onto to become a professional model after she left.
Kelly Brook's modelling career began at the tender age of 16. Her early work included a range of advertising campaigns including bras and lingerie for big-breasted women and also for Foster's beer.
After some initial exposure, her eye catching figure caught the attention of the Daily Star newspaper and it wasn't long till Kelly Brook began featuring topless as a Page Three girl.
From there Kelly went on to feature heavily in a selection of the 'lad mags' such as FHM. She repeatedly graced the list of the "100 Sexiest Women of the Year" and even topped the 2005 list.
Understandably Kelly Brook has also done a large amount of commercial swimwear, sportswear, and hosiery modelling, and a limited amount of nude & semi-nude modeling.
In 2005, Brook posed for a ten-page, partially-nude black-and-white photo spread with the photographer David Bailey. The results were featured in the British design magazine Arena, the November 2005 issue.
In 1997, at just 18, Brook started getting work presenting programmes on MTV, Granada Television, and the Trouble TV channel.
Her breakthrough into mainstream consciousness came in 1999 when she attempted to replace the seemingly irreplaceable Denise van Outen as the female half of The Big Breakfast hosting team.
Having built up such an on screen chemistry with fellow presenter Johnny Vaughan, Denise Van Outen's departure and Kelly Brook's arrival was of much trivial public debate.
With big shoes to fill and the subsequent ending of the show, Kelly never really got the chance to see if she could replace Van Outen.
Regardless, she picked up more roles presenting for MTV and in 2005, she hosted the "reality" television programme Celebrity Love Island for ITV.
Kelly Brook the actress has become more of a regular thing over time and she has appeared in minor roles in a string of movies including Sorted and Ripper.
She also played the girlfriend of Clark Kent/Superman's best friend Lex Luthor in four episodes of Warner Brothers' Smallville during the show's first season (2001 - 2002).
More roles followed including the remake of The Italian Job and she has recently starred in a Marple drama on ITV.
In December 2000 she played the exotic dancer Anya in the play "Eye Contact" at the Riverside Studios in Hammersmith, a role that gathered some tabloid publicity since the finale of the show involved her going topless.
In 2007 Brook participated in the celebrity dancing competition Strictly Come Dancing on BBC1. During the TV series, her father Kenneth Parsons died from cancer, and although she initially decided to continue dancing on the show, she soon withdrew from the competition.
After ending a long term relationship with Jason Statham, Brook met American actor Billy Zane while filming thriller Survival Island in Greece in 2004. Proposing to wed in Summer 2008 and having bought a farmhouse in Kent, after the death of her father in November 2007 Brook kept putting the date back, until the couple split in April 2008.

Kelly Brook - Actress Kelly Brook has revealed her fantastic results and secrets to how she has achieved her new body shape, after following New Atkins since the start of January. Renowned for her hour-glass figure, Kelly was keen to lose a few inches from her waist and tone up after an indulgent Christmas and hectic 2014, while at the same time maintaining her famous curves. Four months on, the 35 year-old has lost over 8 pounds and an incredible three inches from around her waist. Feeling more body confident and happy than ever, Kelly has been excited to show how easy Atkins is to adopt, posting an array of photos of her delicious low carb, low sugar meals across her social channels. Speaking about her transformation, Kelly said: "I'm so happy with my results with Atkins and I can honestly say I have never felt better about my body. My skin is glowing, I feel healthier than ever and I still have my curves - I couldn't ask for better results. I always knew my body would change but I didn't expect to feel this good as well. I have so much more energy and it feels amazing to be able to wear anything I like with confidence." She also added: "Since starting Atkins I have never felt hungry or deprived. I put this down to the fact the Atkins recipes are substantial and perfectly balanced, but also because I can enjoy treats from the Atkins snack range. "Their Cookies and Cream bar is definitely a favourite of mine when I'm out and about. I also love the new Atkins Low Carb cookies. You genuinely don't notice the difference between the Digestive Cookies and the real thing. I used to have at least five cups of tea a day, each with two sugars in, so the snacks have been perfect for curbing my sweet tooth - I can even have a cookie with my cuppa!" Reflecting on her time following the low carb programme, she said: "I started Atkins because 2014 was a crazy year for me and I felt I wasn't able to maintain a healthy diet. Whilst working in LA, it was ver - United Kingdom - Wednesday 27th May 2015
Following poor ratings for its six episode run, NBC has decided to pull the plug on the British model's American dream.
Just a month and a half following its television debut, Kelly Brook’s American comedy show ‘One Big Happy’ has been cancelled.
NBC has decided to axe the sitcom after just six episodes due to its dismal ratings, it was announced on Saturday. In response, the 35 year old British model took to social media to tell her fans that it was nevertheless the most “rewarding” opportunity she had ever taken in her life.
“The most incredible, creatively challenging and most rewarding job I have ever had,” she posted on Instagram. “I will miss this Family so much. We laughed, cried and ate a lot of cheese together over the past 18months. Friendships for life not just a season.”

With Lindsay Lohan reportedly penning a life story, there a more than a few celebrity autobiographies that we'd rather weren't out there
It has been recently reported that child-actress turned troubled adult, Lindsay Lohan, is thinking about putting pen to paper and revealing all about her 28-years thus far. While wild parties, speeding tickets, alcohol-related offences and time spent in prison are all relatively interesting if written in an amusing way, it's hard to imagine this autobiography will be anything but an extended version of the numerous articles already published about her struggles with fame.
Lindsay Lohan is reportedly set to release a tell-all biography
She is, of course, not the only celebrity that has tried their hand at autobiographies as a way of boosting public interest in a somewhat failing fan base. Here are some celebrity books that we’re not sure we want to read.

Looks like the model has started referring to fiancé David McIntosh as her "husband."
Kelly Brook has sparked a storm of speculation that she and fiancé David McIntosh may have secretly married with an unexpected tweet today. The 34 year-old British model and actress seemed to taunt her Twitter followers by referring to the former royal marine as her "husband."
Tweeting a snap from the couple's travels to France on the Eurostar, Kelly wrote "Look how happy my husband looks :) #Eurostar#France #WeddingCelebrations @grifco @laurentoub (sic)"
The "#WeddingCelebration" hashtag actually refers to a pal's wedding and the reason for Kelly and David's French excursion. However, Kelly's labelling of her lover as her husband has prompted gossip that the couple have managed to wed outside the spotlight.

The model/actress showed off more than she may have intended to thanks to her revealing dress at the National Television Awards
Kelly Brook was among the celebrities braving the January chill for the National Television Awards on Wednesday, 22 January, night at London's O2 Arena. The model and occasional actress was a little braver than most with her choice of outfit however, leaving very little to imagination as she ditched her bra and got lots of lovely free publicity along the way.
Brook wore a black dress with a long seam down the side, showing off her enviable pins, and a pair of strapped, gladiator heels and that's about it really. She may have worn underpants too, but judging by her top half she may have forgone wearing underwear altogether. So, this leaves the question: was this all done as a shameless and to be honest pretty sad attempt at garnering attention? Yes, it probably was.
Halloween costumes for 2013? Don't look to the celebrities for inspiration.
It's that time of year again guys. We compile a list of the most bizarre celebrity Halloween costumes of 2013. We're not choosing the best costumes here - oh no - we're choosing the most ridiculous. Sort of the worst, but the best worst ones. You get the picture.
We anticipated that Breaking Bad Halloween costumes would be huge this year and so we've been disappointed with the celebrity effort on that front. Where are all the Jesse Pinkmans, the Walter Whites and the Gus Frings? Maybe they'll emerge later in the week but at the minute we're getting an influx of Miley Cyrus costumes, something we're not happy about at all.
We start with the frankly bizarre Paris Hilton, who still appears to be living life as a sweet sixteen birthday girl. She's 32. This year, she spent $5,000 on several ensembles for the annual Halloween party at the Playboy mansion on Saturday (October 26, 2013). Amongst them was the teddy bear outfit Miley Cyrus twerked in at the MTV Video Music Awards. She also put together a little Katy Perry 'Roar' jungle outfit.
Kelly reckons Danny needs to change his ways, but does Danny even like these 'ways'?
It’s been a pretty tough week for England rugby player Danny Cipriani; he was quite literally hit by a bus when, well, a bus hit him, and his girlfriend – the model Kelly Brook – has told him to sort his life out or it’s over!
A close friend said: “Kelly has told Danny that he needs to sort himself out if their relationship is going to work. Kelly feels quite protective over him and is always wanting to look after him. But her friends are warning her she could get hurt.” But is Danny even that kind of guy? He might not be able to hold his drink, but apparently he doesn’t even enjoy the culture of rugby drinkin. No one does, really. A friend of his said: “He has always been an awful drinker and he could never handle it. It became a bit of a joke so he would always stick to pineapple juice. Hopefully the bus incident will be a wake-up call for him.” And a source close to Danny said: “He hates drinking and hates the big rugby nights out. He only went because if he’s not there then he gets slammed for not being a team player. The whole drinking culture is not him and that is why the incident on Wednesday is so frustrating."
Can these two work it out? Does anyone even care?

Model and TV presenter Kelly Brook is snapped leaving the Riverside Studios in London after appearing on comedy panel show 'Celebrity Juice'. Security members get paparazzi to move back from the doors as Kelly is seen taking a picture with a fan before leaving the building. She smiles and poses briefly before getting into an awaiting car.
Keith Lemon insists Katie Price will never again appear on his hit show Celebrity Juice.
Keith Lemon, aka Leigh Francis, says Katie Price will "never" appear on his ITV2 show Celebrity Juice again after she branded new team captain Kelly Brook a "heifer' - a derogatory term for a large female, also a term for a cow. Keith, 39, told the Reveal magazine, "Katie is never coming back on Celebrity Juice. She was rubbish when she came on here before. She was wooden and didn't relax and thought we were trying to take the p*ss. We were, but that's the point of the show."
Katie, 34, fell out with fellow British model Kelly, 33, after calling her a "heifer" in her Sun column. "You're a heifer, Kelly, but still a hot one," adding, "Every mum should make her daughter look at the recent set of pictures that show Kelly modelling her latest New Look swimwear range.They don't seem to be airbrushed and I'm Flabbergasted to see how big Kelly really is." Price has since apologised for the remarks, though it seems it's too little too late as far as Celebrity Juice goes.
Price has appeared on the comedy panel show twice, once in 2010 when Fearne Cotton was still on the panel, and another time late last year when Keith Lemon congratulated her for being attracted to him for 17 years.
The feud between Katie Price and Kelly Brook has got out of hand. We recommend some valuable advice from Mean Girls.
In the ever wise words of Mean Girls' Ms Norbury: "You all have got to stop calling each other sluts and wh*res. It just makes it OK for guys to call you sluts and wh*res." While Kelly Brook and Katie Price aren't actually calling one another sluts and wh*res Norbury's speech is about re-embracing female solidarity. Indeed, this ridiculous feud between Brook and Price needs to end now.
They have an ex in common which is where some of the animosity lies, but recently their apparent dislike of one another has reached a new level. First, Kelly Brook referred to Price as Magda from There's Something About Mary. Magda is an elderly sun worshipper whose skin has suffered severely through years of abuse and is the original tangerine queen. While you can see why the comparison was made, it's not all that fair to say about a fellow woman.
In retort, Price posted a photo of Brook via Twitter which zoomed in on the model's bare breasts while on holiday in St Barts. Price later apologised for the post, but quickly backtracked and deleted said post within a few hours.
In her Sun newspaper column, Katie Price refers to photos from Kelly Brook's latest photoshoot in Miami for her New Look range of swim wear. "They don't seem to be airbrushed and I'm FLABbergasted to see how big Kelly really is," the surgically enhanced glamour model stated. "Rumour has it she's been hanging out with our mutual ex Danny Cipriani. Knowing him, I guess she's probably been doing a bit of comfort eating. You're a heffer Kelly, but still a hot one." Spell check, anyone?
Naturally, Brook was a little put out by the remarks, but mostly thought negatively of Price for the comments. Speaking at a MIND benefit hosted by Harvey Weinstein on Friday night, she said: "I wasn't angry with what she said, just confused. I definitely don't look like a heifer and it's not something I am going to lose any sleep over. I was only angry because the comments put a dampener on such an amazing trip to Miami to shoot by New Look campaign." (Mirror)
