Who is Kelly Brook and how old is she?
Kelly Brook is a 38-year-old British glamour model born in Rochester, Kent on November 23, 1979.
She started work as a model age 16 and was soon scouted to do glamour work.
This led to work for numerous lads’ mags and in 2005 she was named the Sexiest Woman In The World by FHM. More lucrative ads followed and she featured in Playboy magazine in 2010.
As of 2017 Kelly is a brand ambassador for Skechers and has a clothing line for Simply Be.
The animal lover also owns her own bar Steam And Rye in London and released her autobiography in 2014.
Now settled in Kent, Kelly is a keen gardener and grows her own vegetables between impromptu modelling shoots.
Kelly was recently mocked by This Morning viewers as she presented a gardening segment earlier this month – but failed to show any actual gardening.
She appeared alongside Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes to reveal how to bring colour to outdoor spaces.
Kelly also regularly appears on the panel of Loose Women.

Did Kelly Brook propose to her boyfriend?
In 2018 Kelly revealed that she proposed to her boyfriend Jeremy Parisi while on holiday in Antigua.
Jeremy reportedly turned her down because she asked him in a public place.
She stated that it wasn’t a “serious” proposal.
Kelly also told OK! magazine: “We’re so happy as we are at the moment, I don’t think it’s really important to us.”
The star later said that if she did get married they would have parties in Italy, England and America.

What TV work and acting has Kelly done?
In 1999 Kelly co-presented The Big Breakfast with Johnny Vaughan for six months.
She went on to host Celebrity Love Island in 2005, but her presenting career dried up after that.
Still, Kelly has been on TV regularly over the years, competing on Strictly with Brendan Cole in 2007, though she pulled out in week nine after her father suddenly died.
In 2009 she also judged on Britain’s Got Talent for one week before the four-judge format was axed as “too complicated”.
She’s also appeared as a Celebrity Juice panellist and a team captain on It’s Not Me, It’s You, as well as taking small roles in Smallville and Agatha Christie’s Marple.
Beyond TV, Kelly has appeared in movies like Piranha 3D, School For Seduction, Survival Island, Keith Lemon: The Film, 2003’s The Italian Job and Taking Stock.
It was thought Kelly might break the States with a lead role in sitcom One Big Happy in 2014 but the show was panned and cancelled after one series.
She is now known for her TV work and gardening
