Tanya Louise Bardsley (née Robinson; born 29 April 1981) is an English model, born in Wigan, Greater Manchester, and grew up in Richmond, North Yorkshire. She is currently starring in the reality television series The Real Housewives of Cheshire. She is also the wife of footballer Phil Bardsley.
Robinson has appeared on the cover of Zoo Weekly, Ice, and several times in FHM magazine, as being the winner of their inaugural "High Street Honeys" competition in 2002, and being named to their "100 Sexiest Women in the World" list in 2003 (38), 2004 (32), 2005 (41), 2006 (29) and 2007(63).
In 2003, Robinson went on to feature in a popular Lynx advert where she appeared as a pizza delivery girl in sexy pink underwear. In 2004, Robinson presented two programmes on Sky One called Gamenation and Strike every Friday night for a year. She also appeared in an episode of Celebrity Fear Factor, and had a small role in a French comedy film Double Zéro.
Robinson has done various photo shoots for magazines such as FHM and Nuts. She is often involved with winners of the High Street Honeys from other years and tours clubs around the country in the "Honeys On Tour" promotion for FHM.
Robinson had breast enlargement surgery going from a B cup to a 32D. In 2007, she appeared topless for the first time since getting her breasts enlarged in Zoo, having previously only been photographed topless on holiday before her breast enlargement. Robinson has since posed topless in shoots for FHM and ZOO, including a shoot for Zoo with fellow High Street Honey Kayleigh Pearson.
Robinson released a single in 2004 with the Girls of FHM called "Do U Think I'm Sexy?", which reached number seven in the charts. Robinson then released another single in 2006 with the other FHM High Street Honeys called "I Touch Myself" which topped the box charts.
Robinson is a founding member of the pop music trio Mrs Robinson. Backed by Darryn Lyons, the head of paparazzi photo company Big Pictures, the group was originally named Twisted Sisterz, but was forced to change their name in 2005 following a threat of legal action from the band Twisted Sister. They released their début single "I'm a Little Obsessed" on 3 April 2006, on the Believe music label.
Robinson and her band Mrs Robinson were featured on the BBC programme Paparazzi, which followed the work of the Big Pictures photo agency. The show originally aired on BBC Three, but has been shown in repeats on BBC One.
