Nicola McLean was born September 16, 1983 in London. She is an English glamour model and media personality. She finished in 6th place on the eighth series of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me out of Here!
Before becoming a model, McLean was an Army Cadet. She modelled for Page Three of The Sun newspaper between September 1999 and July 2004, and the Daily Star from 2000 until 2006. One of the UK’s most successful glamor models, she appeared on Page 3 in The Sun and The Daily Star almost every week for around 5 years – notching up almost 300 appearances in total. After having her bust increased from 32C to a 32E in 2004, she left The Sun and continued doing Page Three for The Daily Star, until she became pregnant in 2006. In November 2007, she underwent her second breast enlargement, which took her up to a 32G. McLean came fourth in The Sun poll for the “Best Page 3 Girl Of All Time, beating Samantha Fox, Jo Hicks, Leilani Dowding and Jordan,who’s rivalry with McLean has been widely publicised. In addition to Page Three, she also appeared on the cover of Lad’s Mags including Zoo, Nuts, Front, Loaded and Ice. During her time as a glamour model, McLean often featured on tabloid showbiz gossip pages, and latterly as a guest on television shows including The Weakest Link (Page 3 special), Richard & Judy, The Big Breakfast, Test The Nation (WAGs Special) and The Sexiest Girls In Britain. McLean retired from modelling in 2006 after giving birth. She decided to return to modelling, TV work and acting in early 2008 after being asked to feature as a main star in the Channel Five TV documentary, Help! I’ve Got A High Maintenance Wife. Since then, she starred in the TV show, ‘WAGS’ World… With Nicola McLean’ on Wedding TV and Channel Five’s Generation Sex. She returned to glamour modelling assignments in February 2008 with the Daily Star, and has also appeared on more Lad’s mags covers. McLean was a contestant in the November 2008 edition of ITV’s reality TV show I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here! where she notoriously celebrated her ‘boobs first birthday’. Rumours that she was paid a fee of £7,500 – the show’s lowest appearance fee yet – were dismissed by Nicola, “I earned a lot more money than £7,500! There’s no way I would have gone in to the jungle for two weeks, in those awful conditions, for a tiny fee of £7,500! The newspapers do make-up such rubbish sometimes. I got paid a generous fee that I was very happy with” said Nicola. On 22 November 2008, it was announced that she had been chosen by Ultimo to model their range of D-G cup bras. Appearing on The Cafe on 16 January 2009 McLean became irritated at host Aidan Power’s repeated mispronunciation of her name, revealed her boobs had had their first birthday in the jungle and was confused when fellow guest Daithí Ó Sé misheard her say she was intending to grow a third boob. She scored a total of 14 in the darts and despite it being near the bottom of the scoring tried to move herself to the top and failed, being unable to reach she settled for third.
McLean is an avid supporter of PETA. In May 2009, she was spotted at a protest in London holding a sign that read “Unhappy Birthday Selfridges! Drop Cruel Foie Gras.”
McLean married Peterborough United football player Tom Williams on 13 June 2009. The couple live in a six-bedroom house in Peterborough and have a four-year-old son called Rocky.
