Nichola Theobald began her career in the modelling industry and appeared in a shopwindow worldwide campaign for French Connection and then went on to appear in many editorials in magazines including Esquire and FHM.

She was one of the contestants / presenters on 'Naked Angels in Beach Paradise', a reality show based in Ibiza, Spain - this followed her and five others (including lapdancer Jodie Nichols), as they undertook various fun challenges, from the 'Angel'.

Following a second successful advertising campaign for French Connection her status as a model grew and she was featured in a variety of editorials in popular magazines such as Men's Health, Mixmag, Front, Loaded and Zoo.

She went on to appear in a number of television ad campaigns which are still televised including an entire series of Wrigley's Extra idents for the youth-oriented television drama Hollyoaks.

She has had speaking parts in a special television ad campaign for the special Wimbledon tennis colour supplement for the Guardian newspaper and in a commercial for Diamond Car Insurance for Girls.
