Hazell in 2007.

Lewisham, London, England
Keeley Rebecca M. Hazell (born 18 September 1986) is an English model and actress.
Hazell has become one of Britain's most successful models working with brands such as FHM, and has also made numerous television appearances. More recently, she has focused more on an acting career, appearing in films such as Horrible Bosses 2.
Hazell was born in Lewisham, London, and grew up in Grove Park. She attended the Ravensbourne School in Bromley. Her mother, Amber, was a dinner lady, and her father, Roy, was a window fitter; they separated when Hazell was 13 years old.
At 16 years of age, Hazell left school to work as a hairdresser. Her colleagues persuaded her to try her luck at modelling. At 17, she competed in The Daily Star's "Search for a Beach Babe" contest and won. Still not old enough to pose on Page 3, she went to study fashion at Lewisham College. But later, a friend told her about The Sun's Page 3 Idol competition. Despite some initial uncertainty about entering the contest, she submitted some photos. She was eventually chosen the winner in December 2004. She won £10,000 worth of "sexy clothes" and "a one-year membership of the Rex cinema and bar". Another part of Hazell's Page 3 Idol win was a one-year exclusive glamour modelling contract with The Sun.
Hazell was regularly featured in Nuts and Zoo. She has been on the cover of The Sun's 2006 and 2007 Page 3 calendars, in addition to her own wall calendars, the 2007 edition selling 30,000 copies in its first few days of release.
In 2008, Hazell and agent Ginny Mettrick co-founded a modelling agency called Muse Management.
In 2009, according to the August edition of Loaded, Peta Todd stated that Keeley had given modelling up to pursue a career in acting, and was in America receiving acting lessons. Her last appearance on Page 3 of The Sun was on 30 September 2009.
In 2012 Keeley made her return to modelling and appeared on the front cover of the July issue of FHM.
Other media appearances
Hazell was the face of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe's Formula One 06 video game for PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, and F1 CE for PlayStation 3. She is currently the face of MotorStorm: Pacific Rift for PlayStation 3.
Environmental and charitable work
Hazell was hailed by Conservative leader David Cameron in December 2006 as an "environmental hero" for her campaigns in The Sun, giving environmental tips such as turning lights off during the day. She was named alongside the likes of David Attenborough, Prince Charles and Arnold Schwarzenegger in the Tories' list.
Hazell has backed a major breast cancer awareness campaign for Breakthrough Breast Cancer. The campaign called TALK TLC aims to promote Breakthrough's breast health message about the need to be aware of the signs and symptoms of breast cancer. Hazell has also signed up to take part in the Breakthrough Generations Study consisting of 100,000 women and spanning 40 years - the study aims to be the largest and most comprehensive of its kind.
