Biography

Although born in Stone, Degg is from Hednesford, Staffordshire, England. Degg studied dance as a child, particularly ballet, and won several competitions. She went on to hairdressing school and managed a salon of her own by age 20.[1]

Model

Jakki became famous when, at her mother's encouragement,[1] she entered and won the inaugural Max Power magazine babes competition. Following this she became a Page 3 girl for the The Sun newspaper, and was voted "greatest ever Page 3 girl" in 2001.[2] She has posed topless and semi-nude for lad mags such as Front.

Jakki took a break from topless modeling, preferring to remain more covered up. Jakki returned to page 3 of The Sun in August 2006 after a four-year absence. Degg appeared in a 2009 calendar.[3]

Actress

Jakki has appeared on television several times. She had a small role in the drama Is Harry on the Boat? (Sky One) and played the lead in the short film Remember My Dream, directed by Joao Costa Menezes. She was also a stand-in for the tv show The Games but was not used. She wielded a shotgun on Channel 4's Banzai as viewers were encouraged to wager on how many balloons she would pop with it. She won the Page 3 model charity special edition of The Weakest Link (BBC1) beating Leilani Dowding in the sudden death round, with her winnings going to the RSPCA.[4]

In 2004 she won the Celebrity 24 Hour Quiz on ITV with her winnings also going to the RSPCA.[5]

She also starred in The Poker Academy, and the American film Eurotrip, and will appear in the upcoming films Catch .44, Clubbing to Death, and Goal! III.[6]

Designer

Jakki is currently trying her hand at fashion design. She designed and made the dress she wore to the recent FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the World awards.[7]
