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
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
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 -- all the more to see Kelly.
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.
