Kelly Brook (born Kelly Ann Parsons November 23, 1979) is a British model and television presenter.


After leaving school in Rochester, Brook studied at the Italia Conte stage school in London for three years before becoming a professional model. Brook's early work was in a range of advertising campaigns. Her figure caught the eye of the editorial team of the Daily Star who began featuring her as a page 3 girl. Brook's picture soon began appearing in other "lad's mags" such as FHM (repeatedly appearing in their list of the 100 Sexiest Women of the Year) and Loaded. She topped the 2005 FHM list, which was said to have polled 15 million people.

Television roles

By 1997, still barely 18, Brook started getting roles presenting youth television programmes on MTV, Granada and Trouble TV.

Her big break into mainstream presenting came in January 1999 when she was chosen to replace Denise Van Outen as the female half of The Big Breakfast presenting team, alongside Johnny Vaughan. Brook parted company with the show in July 1999 under unclear circumstances. Initial reports suggested that she had resigned but later it was suggested that in fact Brook had been sacked and only learnt about it whilst holidaying. In either case, most television reviewers said that Brook was too inexperienced for the role, and cited a leaked memo from the production staff to the shows writers recommending that they avoid giving her "difficult words" in her scripts. Vaughan, in an interview with Heat, condemned these attacks as inaccurate and vindictive, especially towards a young presenter.

Brook picked up roles presenting for MTV again and modelling for Triumph Bras - whose specially commissioned 50-foot high billboards of Brook's bust caused a stir. Brook has also 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).

Brook also stars in School for Seduction, a 2004 film.
