Vogue Williams (now Matthews, born 2 October 1985) is an Irish model, television and radio personality, best known for, participating in Dancing with the Stars and Stepping Out and for winning the 2015 series of Bear Grylls: Mission Survive.
Early life and education
Born 2 October 1985 in Portmarnock, near Dublin, Williams’s parents, Sandra and Freddie, separated when she was seven. Williams attended the all-girls Santa Sabina Dominican College in Dublin and then, at the insistence of her property-developer step-father Neil, enrolled and subsequently completed a degree in construction design and management at Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen. As part of her degree, Williams worked for six months in London on building sites. She returned to Dublin to undertake further studies in quantity surveying at the Dublin Institute of Technology.
Her career began on 11 November 2010 in an Irish TV series Fade Street, a version of The Hills which follows the lives of 4 Irish girls in Dublin. The episodes focused on Vogue’s work at Stellar Magazine, learning to act and her passion for DJ’ing.
On 15 April 2012 Williams participated in the twelfth series of Dancing with the Stars in Australia partnered with Christopher Page. They were the third couple to be eliminated from the competition on 6 May 2012.
On 4 February 2015, Williams was confirmed to be participating in the ITV reality series Bear Grylls: Mission Survive which started airing on 20 February 2015, she won the show on 3 April 2015, beating Kelly Holmes and Mike Tindall.
In December 2015, Williams appeared alongside Brian McFadden in a celebrity episode of Catchphrase. On 21 June 2016, she was a guest panellist on an episode of Loose Women. On 30–31 October 2016 she was a guest on Celebrity Haunted Hotel on W.
Williams presented her own four-part series called Vogue Williams – On the Edge, in which she investigated issues affecting the lives of fellow Millennials for example drugs, social anxiety, gender dysmorphia and the obsessiveness for ‘the body beautiful’. 
On 4 June 2017, in the wake of terrorist attacks in Manchester and London, Williams wrote an opinion piece for Sunday World entitled “Internment camps are grim necessity”, which called for the establishment of internment camps for the detention without trial of “3,000 [Muslim] extremists living in the UK”.  She acknowledged that internment in Northern Ireland didn’t work but that terrorists today could not be negotiated with.
Donald Clarke of the Irish Times criticised her views as “illogical, totalitarian and profoundly sinister” and compared them to Breitbart and UKIP. He pointed out that internment in Northern Ireland drove Irish Republicans away from negotiation. He also criticised some response to her column as “predictably patronising, borderline sexist”.
She later said she had made a mistake and apologised for her stance, saying she had written it when she was frightened and angry and that her advocacy of internment was misguided. She also said she had received death threats.
In May 2011, she began dating former Westlife singer Brian McFadden. Their engagement was announced on 12 January 2012 and they were married on 2 September 2012 in Florence, Italy. In June 2015, Vogue purchased an apartment in her hometown of Howth Dublin. On 7 July 2015, Williams and McFadden announced that they were separating after three years of marriage. They divorced in 2017.
Williams appeared on ITV’s Loose Women discussing her relationship with Spencer Matthews of Made In Chelsea fame, whom tabloids claimed she had ‘tamed’. Matthews and Williams were engaged on the stage at the Lyceum Theatre, London on 30 January 2018.
In March 2018 she announced her pregnancy.

Charlene Emma “Charlie” Brooks (born 3 May 1981) is a British actress and model, known for playing Janine Butcher in the BBC soap opera EastEnders. Brooks portrayal of Janine has awarded Brooks with numerous awards, since her first appearance in 1999, with storylines involving cocaine addiction, prostitution and murder.Brooks has appeared in British television shows; The Bill, Wired and Bleak House. Brooks released a fitness DVD, “Before And After Workout“, before winning the 2011 version of the Strictly Come Dancing Christmas Special and the twelfth series of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!.
Brooks was born in 1981, in Ware, Hertfordshire, England, and moved to Barmouth, Wales when she was a child. Brooks attended Tower House School, in Barmouth, and relocated to London to attend Ravenscourt Theatre School.
In television, Brooks has appeared in episodes of The Bill, London’s Burning, Jonathan Creek and The Demon Headmaster. When executive producer Matthew Robinson re-introduced Janine in 1999, after Alexia Demetriou left, Brooks secured the role.
2004-2007: Departure from EastEnders and other acting
After her departure from EastEnders in 2004, Brooks first role was in the BBC drama Bleak House as Jenny. Brooks has done various commercials and voiceovers in the United Kingdom, Europe and the US.
In 2006, Brooks played Beverley Allitt in a BBC1 docu-drama called Beverley Allitt: Angel of Death, alongside Ian Kelsey. Producer Cathy Elliot said, “It’s a very sensitive issue and of course it’s terrible for the parents to have the whole thing brought up. Each time it’s brought up it’s painful, but a lot of parents realise it’s important it’s kept in the public domain and that people are aware that things have happened and that not a lot has been done since”.
She has guest starred in Robin Hood and Love Soup. In theatre, Brooks, whilst on a break from EastEnders in 2003, appeared in the play Office Games alongside Adam Rickitt. The play was Brooks’ west end debut, and was described as “a witty and intelligent political commentary”. In 2007 she appeared in Our Country’s Good at the Liverpool Playhouse.
2008–2014: Return to EastEnders
In 2008, Brooks returned to EastEnders for a guest stint. She was later confirmed to be coming back as a regular character. She said, “I had doubts to begin with, mainly because of Kiki, as I know how full-on EastEnders can be, and then there’s that stigma about going back to a soap. But I’m so pleased I did, it was the right decision. Especially with what’s going on at the moment, I feel really lucky to have a job and I need the security because of Kiki. I was just going to go back for a year, but I had a meeting with the boss last week and we’re going to go for another year. So lots more time to get up to much mischief”. Executive producer Diederick Santer said, “I couldn’t be more pleased that Charlie Brooks is re-joining EastEnders. With her appearances last month, she reminded us what a fine actress she is, and what an intriguing, watchable and engaging character she plays as Janine”. She temporarily departed in September 2012, and returned in April 2013 before departing again in March 2014.
She won I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! in 2012, beating campmate Ashley Roberts. Brooks was “visibly delighted” saying, “[It feels] silly. I never imagined this for a million years. Everyone’s been amazing”. Brooks also narrates Botched Up Bodies on Channel 5.
Her fitness DVD became the UK’s best-selling fitness DVD release, and Brooks was transformed from “podgy Janine to a sexy new mum”.

Janie Dee (born 20 June 1962) is an English actress and singer. She won the Olivier Award for Best Actress, Evening Standard Award and Critics’ Circle Theatre Award for Best Actress in a Play, and in New York the Obie and Theatre World Award for Best Newcomer, for her performance as Jacie Triplethree in Alan Ayckbourn‘s Comic Potential.
She also won the Olivier Award for Best Supporting Performance in a Musical for her performance as Carrie Pipperidge in Nicholas Hytner‘s acclaimed production of Rodgers & Hammerstein‘s Carousel at the National Theatre.
Early life and education
Janie Dee was born in Old Windsor, Berkshire. She is the daughter of John Lewis and Ruth Lewis (née Miller) and the eldest of four sisters. She trained at the Arts Educational School in Chiswick, London. On leaving ArtsEd, Dee began her career as a dancer, subsequently moving to Rome, Italy where she taught dance, took singing lessons, and learned to speak Italian.
Dee’s first West End production was Gillian Lynne‘s 1986 revival of Cabaret by Kander and Ebb in which she played Gertie and understudied the role of Sally Bowles. This led to an invitation from Wayne Sleep, who played the Emcee in that production, to join his UK tour. Subsequently the choreographer Bill Deamer invited her to the Salisbury Playhouse to perform in A Chorus of Disapproval by Alan Ayckbourn. This began a close association between Dee, Ayckbourn and his work.
This led to leading roles in musical theatre, including Sarah Brown in Guys and Dolls, Ellie May Chipley in the award-winning Royal Shakespeare Company and Opera North production of Show Boat at the London Palladium, Bombalurina in Andrew Lloyd Webber‘s Cats, Duke Ellington‘s Sophisticated Ladies, Claudine in Cole Porter‘s Can-Can, and Ado Annie in the national tour of Oklahoma!.
Dee’s portrayal of Carrie Pipperidge in the 1993 Royal National Theatre‘s production of Carousel earned her an Olivier Award for Best Performance in a Supporting Role in a Musical and an invitation from Sir Richard Eyre to play her first major straight role; that of Julie in Johnny on a Spot at the National Theatre, where she subsequently went on to play Helen of Troy in The Women of Troy.
Dee has had an important working relationship with the playwright and director Alan Ayckbourn. This began with Paul Todd’s fringe production of Between The Lines for which Ayckbourn wrote song lyrics and was followed by Dreams From A Summerhouse at the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough. She returned to work with Ayckbourn in 1996 in Neil Simon‘s They’re Playing Our Song and it was during the run of this show Ayckbourn wrote Comic Potential ‘with Janie in mind’. Her performance as Jacie Triplethree at Scarborough, subsequently in the West End and then at the Manhattan Theatre Club in New York, won her three Best Actress Awards in 1999 and 2000, an Obie Award in 2001 and a 2000–1 Theatre World Award as Best Newcomer, as well as considerable critical acclaim. In New York Magazine, John Simon wrote “Miss Dee’s creation is a spectacular achievement. I am not sure that I have ever seen its equal, but I am certain I have never seen, nor ever will see, it’s superior.”
Dee is known for her versatility as a performer. She was invited by opera director David Pountney, to play Lidotchka in his production of Shostakovich‘s Paradise Moscow for Opera North. She followed this playing Masha in Brian Friel‘s translation of Chekhov‘s Three Sisters and Edyth Herbert, opposite Tim Flavin in the George Gershwin musical My One and Only, both at the Chichester Festival Theatre. My One and Only subsequently transferred to the West End and Dee was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best Actress in a Musical.
As a result, in 2003 Sir Peter Hall asked Dee to star in his season at the Theatre Royal, Bath, playing Gilda in Noël Coward‘s Design for Living and Emma in Harold Pinter‘s Betrayal, opposite Aden Gillett and Hugo Speer. Betrayal subsequently transferred to the Duchess Theatre in the West End. Hall then invited her to play Beatrice in his production of Much Ado About Nothing.
In 2005 Pinter invited Dee to play Kate in Old Times at the Gate Theatre, Dublin and to participate in a celebration of his work, including a reading of his play Celebration, with Jeremy Irons, Derek Jacobi, Sinéad Cusack, Penelope Wilton, Michael Gambon, Stephen Rea and Stephen Brennan. Producer, Michael Colgan, subsequently transferred the piece to London’s Noël Coward Theatre, for 3 performances, with Charles Dance playing the Maitre D. Six months later Celebration was filmed for Channel 4, with Colin Firth playing the role of Russell, opposite Dee as Suki.
In 2006 Dee returned to musical theatre to play Mabel Normand in John Doyle‘s production of Jerry Herman‘s Mack and Mabel opposite David Soul at the Criterion Theatre, after which Dee took over the role of Lady Driver in Michael Frayn‘s Donkeys’ Years at the Comedy Theatre. At the end of the run Dee helped to organise a reading for charity of William Nicholson‘s play Shadowlands which deals with the relationship between C. S. Lewis and the American writer Joy Gresham. Charles Dance played C.S. Lewis.
Sir Peter Hall, Harold Pinter and Dee were reunited for the National tour of Old Times with Susannah Harker and Neil Pearson and then a West End Production of Shadowlands was mounted in which Dee was reunited with director Michael Barker-Caven and Charles Dance. The production began at Wyndham’s Theatre and subsequently transferred to the Novello Theatre. Charles Dance received the Critic’s Circle Award for Best Actor for his portrayal of C. S. Lewis.
Alan Ayckbourn then invited Dee back to Scarborough to play the title role of Susan in a revival of his play Woman in Mind for which she won critical acclaim and the production subsequently transferred to the Vaudeville Theatre in London.
In 2009 Dee returned to Theatre Royal Bath to play Orinthia in George Bernard Shaw‘s The Apple Cart, directed by Sir Peter Hall, and took over the role of Annie in Calendar Girls by Tim Firth in the West End. In 2010, Dee played The Countess of Roussillion in All’s Well That Ends Well at Shakespeare’s Globe which was filmed for DVD release by Opus Arte, Anna Leonowens in Rodgers and Hammerstein‘s The King and I at the Curve, Leicester, and played Natalya in Jonathan Kent‘s production of A Month in the Country at Chichester.
In 2011 she played Belinda in the Old Vic revival of Michael Frayn’s Noises Off which was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best Revival and subsequently transferred to the Novello Theatre. In 2012, Dee was offered the role of women’s magazine editor, Miranda in NSFW, a new play by Lucy Kirkwood at the Royal Court Theatre for which she was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role.
In 2013 she appeared in the Stephen Sondheim revue, Putting It Together for four performances in Guildford, alongside David Bedella, Daniel Crossley, Damian Humbly and Caroline Sheen which subsequently transferred for a three-week run at the St James Theatre, London in January 2014.

The London cast was Charles Edwards, Jemima Rooper, Serena Evans, Simon Jones and Patsy Ferran.
From September until December 2014, Dee played Titania/Hippolyta in Dominic Dromgoole‘s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream on a tour of Asia & Russia by Shakespeare’s Globe. The production opened at the Rose Theatre, Kingston and then toured to Aylesbury Waterside Theatre before travelling to China, Taiwan, Russia, Singapore & Hong Kong. The cast included Aden Gillett as Oberon/Theseus and Trevor Fox as Bottom.
In January 2015 Dee starred as Desiree Armfeldt in a Gala Concert performance of Sondheim’s A Little Night Music at London’s Palace Theatre to mark the 40th anniversary of the original London production. The concert also starred Anne Reid, David Birrell, Joanna Riding, Jamie Parker, Anna O’Byrne, Fra Fee and Laura Pitt-Pulford. It was directed by Alastair Knights and the producer and musical director was Alex Parker.
