Kelly Brook , Born Kelly Parsons on November 23, 1979 in Kent, Rochester, England, Ms. Brooke is the daughter of Sandra, a cook, and Ken, a scaffolder. It was clear from the start that Kelly would be much more. Her talent can be traced back to when she attended the prestigious Italia Conte stage school, where Naomi Campbell and Louise Nurding also studied. After 3 years of training in dance, singing, and acting, Kelly was ready to start her career. Kelly's mum entered her in a beauty contest, which of course Kelly won, and led to her interest in modeling. After some small modeling jobs at local firms, including the flooring company KMS, Kelly was gracing the cover of GQ, FHM, Sky, Cosmopolitan, Tatler, The Face, and Company by the age of 16. Her gorgeous physique also slipped into Lee jeans, as part of its advertising campaign, and she was known for playing the game show hostess "Nicky with the Ticky" for a Sure deodorant TV ad. She was finally making a larger salary, as compared to her waitressing job at a tea shop. More modeling jobs came Kelly's way, such as print campaigns for Renault Megane, Walkers, Piz Buin, and the Triumph Flaunt underwear and bra line. The latter featured Kelly on a billboard in London, said to be the largest billboard in the world. Although Kelly was appearing in ads all over the UK, she hit the big time when she won the position of Big Breakfast presenter on Britain's Channel 4. It was Kelly's dream come true, since she was more interested in being a presenter than acting or singing. Rumor has it that Kelly quit Big Breakfast after the tabloids published that the show was going to fire her for being "too dumb." Well, she beat them to it by resigning. After Big Breakfast, Kelly was busy hosting MTV's Select. It was the perfect move for her, as she wanted to be involved with presenting hip music to young fans, because of her interest in dance.
Kelly was splitting her presenting duties and television appearances between Select, VLP and Babewatch for Granada, and The T-Spot for Trouble TV. She was also co-host for No Worries, made appearances on Short Change and Fist of Fun, and hosted the Oasis Live at Wembley concert on Sky One. Forget about TV, Kelly was seen on the big-screen in 2000, in the film Sorted. She also made a guest-appearance in Mojo, and took her acting skills as a table dancer to the stage of the production, Eye Contact, at the Riverside Studios in London. You may also recognize her from Pulp's "Help the Aged" music video. We might see more of Kelly, as she was cast in the pilot for The (Mis)adventures of Fiona Plum. Kelly released her first official calendar in 2001, featuring all of Kelly, 12 months a year. Lock, Stock and 2 Smoking Barrels and Snatch star Jason Statham gets to see her 365 days a year, as they are engaged. FHM's 5th Sexiest Brit Girl for 2000 can next be seen in the upcoming film Ripper: Letter from Hell, as Marisa.
