In a nutshell... After graduating university in Nottingham, I moved to London and attended The Academy Drama School. I completed their summer course before I started working full time as a model. After a year of advertising campaigns, TV ads, and magazine spreads I signed a record deal with Sony/BMG, whilst managed by Pete Waterman. I toured the UK with my band POP! We performed to audiences in excess of 60,000. We released 3 top 20 singles and appeared on many TV shows and were proud to perform for Breast Cancer Awareness and Children In Need. After our split in 2005, I hosted an interactive quiz show and have gone on to present for other quiz shows, dating shows and shopping channels. Ive also been involved in presenting at some prestigious corporate events and continue to be a very busy model and working mum! My modelling credits are substantial and most are listed below.
Underneath you can view snipets of music videos and adverts I have appeared in:
I released 3 top 20 singles whilst in the band POP! We were signed to Sony/BMG and managed by Pete Waterman. 2 of these singles reached No.1 in the Dance Charts.
