Kelly Brook is an English entrepreneur, actress, television presenter and one of England’s most famous models, who ranks amongst the top ten of several men’s magazines as the one of the ‘Sexiest Women’. She also stood on number 33 and 34 on ‘Top 99 Most Desirable Women’ of 2007 and 2008.
Brook was born on 23rd November 1979 in Rochester, Kent, England. Brook went to Italia Conti Academy of Theater Arts for three years before professional modeling. Her modeling career actually began when her mother entered her in a beauty contest, which she won. Working on various advertising campaigns that included Bravissimo, a lingerie designer company, her physique was noticed by a tabloid ‘Daily Star’ which started to feature her as their Page Three girl. It was not long before Brook was appearing on various men’s magazines such as Loaded, GQ and FMH. Brook began to top many ‘Top Ten’ lists including FMH ‘100 Sexiest Women in the World’ in 2005. She also graced the cover of other magazines like Cosmopolitan, Tatler, The Face, and Company.
Brook got a big break when she signed a contract for one million dollars with Unilever. She was to represent their body spray ‘Axe’ for which she appeared in newspapers, billboards, television as part of the ad campaign. She has also appeared in ‘Sure’ deodorant, Sky+, T Mobile and Reebok commercials. Brook was also part of the Lee jeans advertising campaign. The men’s magazine Playboy featured her in their September 2010 issue. The next month Brook went live on a Clapham picture house as part of the promotion for Carlsberg and Sky 3-D which was a big surprise to those who went there.
At the age of eighteen Brook began to present various TV shows on Granada Television, MTV and Trouble TV. She entered the mainstream in January 1999 on BBC1 by appearing in the show ‘Strictly Come Dancing’. She suffered the loss of her father during this time but she decided to continue the show for a while before finally withdrawing the show in its ninth week. In 2008 she became a judge on the show ‘Dirty Dancing: The Time of Your Life’ which was broadcasted from September to November. The next year she became the fourth judge on Britain’s Got Talent but was removed from the show on the grounds that a fourth judge was very complicated. However Brook claimed later that she was axed from the show because of the show’s judges Ant and Dec who were not happy that she was there.
Brook also appeared in a Pulp video ‘Help the Aged’ in a dance sequence. She made her proper debut with a short role in ‘Sorted’. She also appeared in ‘Ripper’, ‘The Italian Job’ and a TV series ‘Smallville’. ‘School for Seduction’ was her first starring role film. She also had a lead role in the horror comedy remake movie ‘Piranha 3D’. In 2009 Brook replaced Jerry Hall to play Cecelia in ‘Calendar Girls’. She is currently dating Thom Evans with whom she was expecting a baby but suffered a miscarriage in May 2011.
