Zoe Cole began modelling as a teenager after being scouted on a school skiing trip by a top London agency. In the early days of her career she took part in London Fashion Week and has worked for such designers as Temperley and Joseph. Zoe has also appeared in advertising campaigns for brands including Hugo Boss and Clairol and become a favourite of men’s magazine FHM as well as shooting for fashion magazines Marie Claire and Cosmopolitan.
Zoe has starred in many television commercials including those for Simple Skincare, Audi, Mercedes Benz and Olay. She was also lucky enough to play Robbie Williams’ love interest in his music video for “Love Supreme”, a video that indulged her passion for motor racing.
In 2000 that passion led her to become a TV presenter and reporter for FHM magazine. This job took her all over the world interviewing racing drivers and celebrities and reporting on the F1 season. Zoe also worked alongside model Jodie Kidd on Sky1 reality TV show “The Ultimate Playboy”, a show in which eligible young men competed in a series of James Bond style tasks. This job involved Zoe participating in challenges such as playing polo and driving racing cars as well as jet ski racing and ballroom dancing.
Another of Zoe’s interests is writing and in 2004 she was commissioned by AOL to write a Formula One social diary covering the races and parties. Her work has also been published in The Mail On Sunday travel section.
Zoe’s charitable work includes acting as a model mentor for The Teenage Cancer Trust’s Shunburn campaign which included giving tips on skincare and health, being on the judging panel for the Inspiration awards for women in association with Breakthrough Breast Cancer and being an advocate of the charity Saying Goodbye for women who have experienced child loss and bereavement.
Zoe has lived and worked in many cities including Miami and Barcelona and currently resides in the english countryside with her husband, Strictly Come Dancing star Brendan Cole and their daughter Aurélia.
