Former Miss Wales, Big Brother babe and serial football-bagger Imogen Thomas was born near Swansea in Wales in 1982. Never one to shy away from the limelight, young Imogen started modelling early at age 13. She moved to the bright lights of London to look for more modelling work when she was 17, working in bars to make ends meet.
Her first big break came when she won the Miss Wales title aged 21. Then came her rise to mainstream fame with her appearance in the 2006 series of Big Brother. Bitching, sulking and scheming seemed to be her game plan, and she was voted off after 12 weeks with viewers declaring her to be one of the dullest Big Brother contestants of all time.
But personality isn’t too important in the modelling stakes, and after the nation watched her flirt her way around the house, stripping off as often a possible, a career in lads' mags and on the arms of brainless footballers beckoned. A breast implant or two later and that’s exactly where Imogen’s ended up.
Unless you were a bloke, you might’ve thought Imogen had all but disappeared until her unexpected career resurgence in 2011. After being outed as a certain impossible-to-name world class footballer’s bit on the side and the whole super-injunction furore that followed, Imogen’s now raking in the cash like never before.
