Kayleigh Emma Pearson (born 25 June 1985 in Bath, England) is a model who is most famous for winning FHM's second High Street Honey competition, in 2003. She hails from Worcestershire and grew up in Bewdley. She is represented by International Model Management. Kayleigh was named after the Marillion song "Kayleigh" when it was top of the charts in 1985, which her mother heard on the radio while in hospital after giving birth to Pearson.
Pearson attended the Bewdley High School and went on to study sports science at University College Worcester. She is a qualified and keen gymnast; she taught gymnastics at the age of 11 and is also qualified to run her own gym.
Pearson was the winner of FHM's (For Him Magazine) High Street Honeys competition in 2003, after Kayleigh sent a picture of herself to FHM. Her audition photo had been originally taken to send to her then-boyfriend, a soldier, to boost his morale while he was stationed in Iraq.
She was voted in FHM's list of the 100 Sexiest Women in 2004 (28), 2005 (56), 2006 (67) and 2007 (62).
Pearson released a single in 2004 with The Girls of FHM called "Do U Think I'm Sexy?" which reached No. 7 in the charts. Pearson released another single in 2006 with the other FHM High Street Honeys called "I Touch Myself" which reached No. 1 in the box charts.
In 2006 she had her breast size increased from 34B to 34DD, and first appeared topless exclusively since getting her breasts enlarged, in Nuts magazine. Pearson has since posed topless for other magazines, including a further shoot for Nuts with fellow High Street Honey Tanya Robinson. Pearson further pursued her modelling career with extensive shoots for web based glamour modelling site Only Tease.
Pearson is one of the original Candy Girls of the CandyCrib. Along with Louise Cliffe, Claire Andrisani, Natalie Oxley, Jerri Byrne, Hannah Joy Lewis, Jodie Nicholls and Krystle Gohel, she spent most of 2005 living in the CandyCrib – a reality TV show featuring the UK's top glamour models.
