Jodie Marsh was born in Essex to mum Kristina and dad John in 1978. She has a younger brother called Jordan.

The bright youngster did well at school, leaving with 11 GCSEs and 3 A Levels, but says she was badly bullied.

Jodie considered studying law but soon found fame on the documentary Essex Wives in 2002 and became a glamour model.

She hit the headlines in 2003 when she stepped out in a daring outfit consisting of two belts strapped over her boobs and a tiny camouflage skirt for a night out in London.

Jodie Marsh starred in several lads’ mag photoshoots and struck up a rivalry with fellow model Katie Price, aka Jordan.

The Essex lass released her autobiography in 2005 and appeared in a number of reality TV shows including The Games, Trust Me: I’m A Holiday Rep and Celebrity Big Brother.

Jodie even prepared to marry on screen in 2007 MTV show Totally Jodie Marsh: Who’ll Take Her Up The Aisle? Potential husbands auditioned and Katie Price’s former boyfriend Matt Peacock was the winner.

The couple appeared to get hitched before splitting three months later but Jodie later admitted that they hadn’t really married.

At the age of 29 Jodie had a boob job, taking her breasts from a 32DD to a 32GG, and revealed in 2008 that she was in a lesbian relationship with a woman called Nina.

Jodie Marsh soon developed an interest in bodybuilding and enlisted the help of a personal trainer to build herself up.

By 2011 she’d developed a very muscular physique and stunned fans when she showed off her new figure on Twitter.

Jodie took part in a qualifier for the Natural Physique Association’s British Championships in Sheffield and came in fifth place, proving how seriously she was taking her career as a bodybuilder.

As well as working on her fitness, Jodie has presented a series of documentaries on the TLC channel, with topics ranging from prostitution to steroids.

She’s also launched her own range of sports nutrition products.
