Kelly Brook (born Kelly Ann Parsons on November 23, 1979) is an English model, actress, and occasional swimwear designer and television presenter.
After leaving school in Rochester, Brook studied at the Italia Conti stage school in London for three years before becoming a professional model.
Brook's modeling career began at 16 after winning a beauty competition, her early work was in a range of advertising campaigns, including for the new "Bravissimo" company that specializes in bras and lingerie for full-figured women, and for Foster's beer. Brook is 5 feet, 9 inches (173 cm) tall, and her voluptuous figure caught the eye of the editorial team of the Daily Star who began featuring her as a Page Three girl.
Brook has also done a large amount of commercial swimwear, sportswear, and hosiery modeling, and a limited amount of nude & semi-nude modeling. Recent modelling work for Triumph Bras caused quite a stir because of specially commissioned 50-foot high billboards of Brook's bust.
In February 2007, it was announced that Kelly Brook had signed a contract, reported to be worth £1m, to be the new face and body of Unilever's Lynx bodyspray, known as Axe in the US and on continental Europe. Kelly has been on billboards, in newspapers and online as part of the advertising campaign.
In December 2007, Brook will launch her own signature fragrance, the bottle shape will replicate her famous curves.
In 1997, still barely 18, Brook started getting work presenting youth television programmes on MTV, Granada and Trouble TV.
Brook picked up roles presenting for MTV again. In 2005 she presented the reality television programme Celebrity Love Island for ITV.
Brook has appeared in minor roles in a string of movies including Sorted and Ripper. She played the girlfriend of Clark Kent/Superman's best friend Lex Luthor in four episodes of Warner Brothers' Smallville during the show's first season (2001 - 2002). She has also completed assignments as a movie actress in Canada and made a short appearance as Lyle's girlfriend in the 2003 movie The Italian Job. In 2004 she played character Nikki Morris in the video game Need for Speed Underground 2, alongside Brooke Burke. Brook's first starring role was in School for Seduction, a 2004 film.
In 2005 she appeared in the Philippe Vidal film House of 9, a thriller about nine seemingly unconnected strangers captured and locked in a house together. The people are forced to compete against one another, in order to survive.
She recently starred in a Marple drama on ITV. She caused a minor controversy over her most recent film Survival Island (previously known as Three), in which she co-starred with fiancé Billy Zane, when Brook and Zane requested her nude scenes be excised from the final cut, which the producers refused to do. Boyfriend Vincenzo Croce became furious over the nude scenes and the two split for good.
In 2007 she will be seen as a guest star in the British television drama Hotel Babylon, the independent films In the Mood and Fishtales and Carry on London, the latest in the Carry on series.
In December 2000 she played lap dancer Anya in the play Eye Contact at the Riverside Theatre in Hammersmith, a role that gathered considerable tabloid publicity as the finale of the show involved Brook stripping naked.
