Biography for Lisa Snowdon

Lisa Snowdon (born Lisa Marie Snawdon on 23 Jan. 1971 (46 years ago)) is an English model and TV personality. She has been the host of the reality TV show Britain's Next Top Model, since 2006 (11 years ago), and is known for having dated George Clooney. She has also worked as a radio host, presenting the breakfast show on the London station 95.8 CapitalFM with Johnny Vaughan. Snowdon took part in series six of Strictly Come Dancing and finished in third place, partnering professional dancer Brendan Cole.

She was born Lisa Marie Snawdon in Welwyn Garden City, England to Lydia and Nigel Snawdon, and has two younger sisters, Joanna and Lesley Anne. She moved to London to attend the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts, where her friends included Naomi Campbell. After her parents split up when she was 17, she stayed in London and worked briefly as a dance and yoga teacher.

Career

Spotted by a Premier Model Management agent at age 19 whilst dancing in a London nightclub, she was auditioned and signed up and started working with renowned photographers. Snowdon is best known for her beauty commercials and high-fashion cover and spread modelling, including cover shots for Vogue, Marie Claire and Cosmopolitan and Elle; she was also the face and fashion modeling icon for Gucci. She went on to be the "elevator girl" for Lynx deodorant in 2003 (14 years ago), appeared in advertisements for Mercedes-Benz, Dove soap and Kelloggs Special K, and was the face of campaigns for Neutrogena and After Eight mint straws, the Taxiwise safety campaign and numerous catalogues. Her modelling career led to appearances in Maxim, Arena, Loaded and GQ. She featured on FHM's List of FHM 100 Sexiest Women every year between 1996 (21 years ago) and 2007 (10 years ago) except for 1998 (19 years ago). Snowdon returned to modelling when she became the face and model of Avon lingerie.

Snowdon moved into other areas of work, including pop music and acting. A 1997 (20 years ago) album, Spell It Out, failed to sell, and a starring role in Channel 4's short movie Man's Best Friend did not perform much better.

Her first host role on TV was fronting Lisa Snowdon's All Access for VH1. However, she developed her skills to successfully take over the role from Lisa Butcher as the 'supermodel' judge and host on Britain's Next Top Model, a contest to find Britain's next top model to rival the likes of herself and others such as Kate Moss and Twiggy. This later role led to a series of stand-in and guest presenting roles on British terrestrial TV, where in Jun. 2007 (10 years ago) she guest-presented the BBC's Sunday morning show Something for the Weekend, and, in August, Channel 4's tea time show Richard & Judy alongside David Walliams. In Autumn 2007 (10 years ago) she was announced as the new co-presenter of Through the Keyhole with Sir David Frost on BBC One.

Having had various spells covering as Johnny Vaughan's co-presenter on 95.8 CapitalFM's breakfast show, during which she interviewed Baywatch star David Hasselhoff, the end of Aug. 2008 (9 years ago) saw an announcement that she was to be the permanent replacement for Denise van Outen on the London station.

Snowdon appeared in a cameo role as herself in the Channel 4 programme, Plus One.

Strictly Come Dancing

Snowdon took part in the sixth series of Strictly Come Dancing on the BBC paired with Brendan Cole, competing against other celebrities, including model Jodie Kidd. Despite pulling off a perfect score in the final three, she came third in the public votes and was therefore knocked out of the show. However, she currently holds the record for the most perfect 40's within an series and marks the first celebrity to achieve a perfect score in both Latin and ballroom dances. She holds a record for the series she participated in for the most first places with five.

Charitable activity

In 2005 (12 years ago), Snowdon became an ambassador for the breast cancer care charity. Snowdon participated in a celebrity edition of The Apprentice in order to raise money for charity, part of the BBC's biennial Sport Relief event.

Personal life

Snowdon lives in Epping Forest. Snowdon is probably as well known for her five year on/off relationship with actor George Clooney (5 walls) as her modelling. The pair met when shooting an advert for Martini in 2000 (17 years ago), and the status of their relationship was well reported in the tabloids on both sides of the Atlantic.

She has dated actor Gary Dourdan, David Loeffler of E.Y.C., writer Chris Benson and model Paul Sculfor.
