Born 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 career.

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 of
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
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.
