The A levels she took were Maths,[2] communication studies and Performing arts. Pike completed her degree in Film and Media Studies at Manchester Met University during her year as FHM High St Honeys winner.

Career[edit]

Natalie won the FHM High Street Honeys competition in 2004, following in the footsteps of Tanya Robinson and Kayleigh Pearson. She appeared on the front cover of FHM again in 2005[3] and 2007.

Pike is now one of the most popular glamour models in the UK, having also appeared on the cover of Zoo[4] and Nuts magazine several times. She was voted in FHM's list of the 100 Sexiest Women in 2005 (26) and 2006 (51).

Pike is an avid Manchester City supporter. She has a tattoo of the Manchester City badge on her lower back and she is a season ticket holder and is regularly spotted supporting her beloved team all over the country. Natalie modelled the new kit in 2006.

Pike appeared on the first season of the UK version of Beauty and the Geek which aired on Channel 4 and E4. She was partnered with Mathematics student Jamie Sawyer, and they were eliminated after three episodes.[2]

She was a game show hostess on The Price Is Right, presented by Joe Pasquale, weekdays at 2.00pm and 5:00pm on ITV1.

Pike released a single in 2006 with the other FHM High Street Honeys called I Touch Myself which reached no.1 in the box charts.

In the April 2007 FHM (UK edition) it is stated that readers of the magazine voted Natalie the favourite Honey ever and to go the Xbox 360 Global Challenge. As part of the challenge she will be flying to and from Japan, Australia, LA, and Mexico within a time span of 360 hours. In each country she and 4 other European Honeys will compete in missions based on popular Xbox 360 games.

In 2007 she did her first ever topless shoot for the men's weekly magazine ZOO.[5]

In October 2008 she was turned down by Countdown bosses for apparently being "too sexy" as a replacement for the departing Carol Vorderman losing out to Rachel Riley.[6]

She divides her time between London and Manchester.

In 2009 Pike started her own Modelling School with celebrity photographer Scott Ninness.[7]

Pike retired from modelling in 2009.

More recently, she became the match day presenter for Manchester City and is a qualified football referee.

Natalie currently co-presents a weekly football talk show on The Revolution radio station 96.2fm every Sunday nights at 10pm.

On 26th December 2013, Pike escaped serious injury as her car spun off the A1 on black ice as she was driving from Scotland to Manchester, and was taken to hospital in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.[8]
