Danielle Lloyd: Lloyd was born in Penny
Lane, Liverpool in 1983. Her parents, Jackie and Arthur Lloyd are a bank manager
and an engineer, respectively. At the age of 3 months, Lloyd contracted whooping
cough, resulting in damage to her lungs. This led to her developing asthma.
She attended St Hilda's CoE High School for Girls. Lloyd was a keen on sports as a child, and competed nationally for the Sports Acrobatics Liverpool Team at the Centre of Excellence.
At age 16 Lloyd began modelling, frequently entering competitions in and around Liverpool. Upon finishing school, she decided to pursue a dual career in modelling; and trained as a beautician specialising in massage, and is also a qualified nail technician.
However, just as she was beginning her modelling career, Lloyd was brutally attacked by her boyfriend of the time. She was dragged from her moving car after an argument with him, suffering terrible grazes and severe bruising to her body and losing most of her hair. Lloyd later said of the attack:
“Deep down you can’t forget what’s happened no matter how much counselling you have. You blame yourself and tell yourself you deserve it – I was given help when I most needed it and I want to be able to help others now. Too many women (1 in 4) suffer domestic violence at some time and support centres such as Women’s Aid aren’t able to answer all of the calls due to being under resourced. I'll always do all that I can to help raise awareness and help people. Being in a violent relationship, you are constantly living in fear – and that’s no way for anyone to live their life."
The headmaster of Lloyd's old school, St Hilda’s, Chris Yates said: "There’s no recollection of her ever being persecuted and no teacher can ever recall any incidents where Danielle was bullied. In fact I’ve been led to believe by her former friends the opposite’s true."
Lloyd was crowned Miss England on 17 July 2004 and competed at Miss World 2004.
On 26 February 2006, Lloyd was named Miss Great Britain 2006..
On November 2, 2006, she was stripped of her title “following recent claims in the press and magazines and the publicity given on the Playboy Web site for their next issue", according to the Miss Great Britain website. The claim they were referring to was that Lloyd had been dating Teddy Sheringham, who was one of the judges of the pageant, for more than two months before her victory. This was reported by the media after she allegedly said in an interview that Sheringham bought her a pair of shoes for Christmas. Lloyd continues to claim that the relationship started after the pageant, and that the interview was made up. She attributes her topless shoot for the December 2006 issue of Playboy as the primary reason for the loss of her title.
On 11 January 2007 it was revealed that Lloyd was being sued by the Miss Great Britain company for breaking her contract and bringing the company into disrepute. The company is asking for full revelation of the sums she earned for the Playboy pictures, plus costs.
Lloyd made a memorable appearance on BBC One's Test the Nation. When asked "Who was Winston Churchill - a rapper, US President, the PM or King?", Lloyd answered "Wasn't he the first black president of America? There's a statue of him near me - that's black."
Lloyd has recently appeared in FHM and Maxim magazines and before the Big Brother racism row wrote a column for celebrityspotlight.co.uk.
Celebrity Big Brother 5
Lloyd joined Celebrity Big Brother UK on January 3, 2007, at the start of the series. She said in her column in a magazine that, ironically: "Things I’m looking forward to in the house …meeting people I’d probably never meet in everyday life, seeing if I can cope with the challenges and letting people at home see me in a different way (I’ll be wearing more clothes!!)"
Lloyd was the second housemate to enter the Big Brother House, and had amongst her possessions a blue teddy bear doused in Sheringham's aftershave
