Imogen Mary Thomas (born 29 November 1982) is a Welsh model and television personality. She came to prominence in 2003, after winning Miss Wales, and achieved further notability in 2006, when she lasted three months on the seventh series of Channel 4 reality television programme Big Brother.
Thomas started working as a model at age 13, and at the age of 17 moved to London to become a professional model. Working in bars to pay for her living costs, she was rejected by many modelling agencies due to her height, which is alleged to be around 1.68m (5′ 6″).
She was crowned Miss Wales in 2003, beating future Big Brother 9 winner Rachel Rice, who came third. She went on to represent Wales at Miss World in China. This prompted her to return to London to try glamour modelling, and also working as a bar hostess at London’s Sanderson Hotel.
Big Brother and modelling
Like other contestants, Thomas has taken part in many Big Brother spin-off programmes, including Big Brother’s Little Brother and Big Brother’s Big Mouth. She also co-presented with other housemates for T4.
On 5 August 2012, Thomas announced she was pregnant with her first child with Australian boyfriend Adam Horsley, and on 11 February 2013 gave birth to a girl, Ariana Siena. On 25 May 2015 she announced she was expecting a second child, giving birth to daughter Siera Aleira Horsley on 20 November 2015.
