Biography

Tappenden began her topless modelling career as a Page Three girl at the age of 20 in 2002 after winning the The Sun's first ever 'Page 3 Idol' competition [1] whilst working for Merrill Lynch investment bank.[2] She has become a regular fixture since, as well as undertaking other glamour and retail fashion modelling assignments. In May 2007, she entered the Miss Great Britain contest as Miss Croydon along with Michelle Marsh as Miss Oldham.[3] Tappenden came in 10th place, with Marsh reaching 4th place.[4][1]

She went to Shirley High School in Croydon.

As an actress, Tappenden appeared in the movie Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo in 2005.

Tappenden was invited to take part in WAGs Boutique (due to her relationship with Fulham striker Bobby Zamora), where two teams of WAGs competed to run two fashion boutiques over a three-month period. Later in 2007 she released an exercise video WAGS Workout.[5][6][7]

In 2010 Tappenden signed up to be a part of the seventh and final Celebrity Big Brother.[8][9] Tappenden has recorded a single for release in 2010, which features Coolio.[7]

Personal life

Having dated Fulham striker Bobby Zamora for two years[10], they separated in April 2007 (after she had completed WAGs Boutique), claiming that he had been unfaithful.[11] Zamora previously stated that he had a blown-up picture of Tappenden's chest applied to the ceiling above his bed.[12] Tappenden is engaged to Crewe Alexandra football player Simon Walton.[13] Tappenden gave birth to their first child in November 2008, a baby girl named Poppy.[14]

Tappenden's fashion icons include Lindsay Lohan and fellow WAG Victoria Beckham,[15] Nicola dresses her West Highland White Terrier in feminine pink outfits even though it is male.[15][12]
