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.
