Lisa Snowdon wallpapers is an English model and television personality

Lisa Snowdon wallpapers is an English model and television personality (born 23 January 1972) is an English model and television personality, who has recently started work as a radio host with Johnny Vaughan, presenting the breakfast show, on London's Capital 95.8, replacing Denise Van Outen. She is known best as the supermodel host of the reality television show Britain's Next Top Model, since 2006, and being previous love interest of George Clooney.

Snowdon took part in series six of Strictly Come Dancing and came in third place, partnering professional dancer Brendan Cole.Biography

Born Lisa Marie Snawdon[1], in Welwyn Garden City, England to Lydia and Nigel Snawdon, and has two younger sisters, Joanna and Lesley Anne.[2] She moved to London to attend the Italia Conti School of Performing 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.


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,[3] doing advertisements for Mercedes-Benz, Dove soap; the girl in the red swimsuit for Kelloggs Special K,[4] the face of campaigns for Neutrogena and then After Eight mint straws "Taxiwise" safety campaign; and numerous high-fashion catalogues. Her modelling career led to appearances in Maxim, Arena, Loaded and GQ. She has featured on FHM's List of FHM 100 Sexiest Women every year between 1996 and 2007 except for 1998. Snowdon returned to modelling when she became the face and model of Avon lingerie.

In recent years, Snowdon has moved as with a number of other models, into other areas. A 1997 album, Spell It Out, failed to sell, and a starring role in Channel 4's short film Man's Best Friend did not perform much better.

Her first host role on television 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.[5] This later role led to a series of stand-in and guest presenting roles in mainstream UK terrestrial television, where in June 2007 she guest-presented the BBC's Sunday morning show Something for the Weekend, and in August on Channel 4's tea time show Richard & Judy alongside David Walliams, whilst regular presenters Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan were away at the funeral of Manchester icon Tony Wilson. This led to her in Autumn 2007 being 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 Hasslehoff, the end of August 2008 saw an announcement that she was to be the permanent replacement for Denise van Outen on the London station.[6][7]

Snowdon also played a cameo of herself in new Channel 4 programme, Plus One.[8]

[edit] Strictly Come Dancing

Snowdon took part in the sixth series of Strictly Come Dancing on the BBC paired with Brendan Cole,[9] 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. [10][11]However, she currently holds the record for the most perfect 40's within an actual series and also marks the first celebrity to ever 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.
