TV presenter, model, author, Strictly Come Dancing winner and mum of two – Abbey Clancy has come a long way since she first burst into the public conscience in 2006. From high-end fashion modelling to designing high street clothing ranges, Abbey has successfully established herself as far more than just a pretty face.
In 2016 Abbey took on the role of judge in the hit TV series Britain’s Next Top Model, the show that gave her her big break in 2004 and she is excited to be returning as joint head judge alongside Paul Sculfor again this year. As runner-up in series 2 of BNTM, she knows what it takes to survive the competition and how to impress on photoshoots, fashion challenges and catwalks.
As a contestant Abbey proved herself a huge hit with viewers and the UK media alike, and she quickly became a regular fixture on British TV. Naturally a move to presenting was the next step and in 2008 Abbey took on her first hosting role on ITV2’s The Fashion Show. From there she went on to co-host James Corden’s World Cup Live for ITV, present a regular fashion slot on This Morning and co-host Great British Hairdresser. In 2013 Abbey took to the dance floor on the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, going on to win the coveted Strictly glitter ball in her own inimitable style.
Abbey’s modelling career has continued to grow from strength to strength. She has fronted campaigns for Agent Provocateur, Umbro, Avon and Reebok. Featured in fashion shoots for magazines from Love to Sports Illustrated, Russian Vogue to Glamour and has walked in Giles Deacon’s Spring/Summer 2011 show at September’s London Fashion Week. She additionally models and shoots for high-end editorial, with the likes of Rankin, Greg Williams, Solve Sundsbo and Damon Baker.
In addition to her TV and modelling Abbey also worked closely with high-street giant Matalan to design a number of capsule ranges, launched her own perfume with Avon and published her first novel, Remember My Name. 2016 saw Abbey playing a cameo in the hit movie Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie.
