Penny Lancaster

Penny Lancaster

Born and bred in Essex, Penny graduated from the 'London College of Fashion' at the age of 17 where she went on to work as a top model for over 10 years. Inspired by the fashion world she decided to switch to the other side of the lens and become a photographer.

Shortly after meeting her husband to be - in 1999 - and embarking on the proud journey of Motherhood, she fulfilled her dream of performing on the west-end stage, in the musical 'Tonight's the Night'.

Following on from my passion to dance, I competed in the 5th series of 'Strictly come Dancing' and had the time of my life!

Being grateful and giving back, was an important message that my parents instilled in me. That's why the charity work that I'm involved with means so much to me and I hope my children will learn the same lesson.

In more recent years Penny has embraced the opportunity of TV presenting whilst juggling an international family life split between London and LA!
