Abbey Clancey is turning 28 years old today–that being January 10, 2013–and she’s certainly one of the best things that England’s ever imported from Liverpool. How many hot lingerie models, after all, have emerged from America’s Next Top Model? Well, we’ve dressed a lot in lingerie in our mind, and there has been Adrianne Curry’s amazing work–but the fact remains that Abbey Clancey has been a lot busier baring her bod as a mere finalist on Britain’s Next Top Model.
Abbey Clancey still somehow remains a bigger name overseas than in America. She’s easily stayed one of Britain’s most beloved UK glamour models, though, and even earned the ultimate honor of landing in a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Abbey’s also remained a mainstay on reality television. That includes on American television with her own series Abbey and Janice: Beauty and the Best, where we cheered for Abbey to break into the L.A. modeling world. She probably could have done better without Janice Dickinson as her main advisor.
Back in her homeland, she’s competed on Hell’s Kitchen (where she was voted off the show pretty quickly), but wrapped up 2013 as the winner of the popular show Strictly Come Dancing–which is like the UK version of Dancing With the Stars.
She did that as a modeling MILF, too–since the blonde sadly (for us) married footballer Peter Crouch in 2011. Abbey looked amazing, though, and these pics will prove that motherhood didn’t keep her from getting right back in the game. Now we just need her playing more in the USA…
