Peter Crouch’s wife, Abigail Clancy (commonly known as “Abbey”) is a British lingerie and catwalk model, as well as a British television host.
Lingerie and Runway Model
Abbey Clancy came into the spotlight as the runner up to, Lianna Fowler, in Britain’s Next Top Model in 2006 (in my opinion Abbey is way hotter than Lianna, but I never understand what they are looking for in those shows…). After the show Abbey got many jobs modelling for magazines and newspapers and was on the cover of Arena magazine in May of 2007. More recently Abbey was featured in the 2010 Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition wearing only a painted on England jersey and in August 2011 Abbey was featured on the cover of Esquire magazine.
After her success on Britain’s Next Top Model Abbey has gone on to be featured in many modelling documentaries and was even featured on her own series Abbey and Janice: Beauty and the Best where she attempts to break into the Los Angeles model scene. Abbey also took down series 1 of the Chris Moyles’ quiz show, showing that she isn’t all beauty, but also has brains. Clancy was even a contestant on Hell’s Kitchen in one season, being the 5th contestant voted out. Abbey has made celebrity appearances and hosted many other television shows and you can expect to see her on the TV much more in the future.
Sexiest Women In The World
Abbey has been recognized on FHM’s sexiest women in the world poll for the past 5 years. In ’07 Abbey came out of the gate ranking 37th, but dropped to #55 in 2008. Abbey then jumped to 12th place in 2009 and climbed even further with a 10th place ranking in 2010. Maybe just a few more years until she gets that #1 ranking? Well she dropped back to number 28 in 2011 and having kids likely won’t help her chances in the next few years.
Peter Crouch started dating Abbey in 2006 and the pair got engaged in ’09. Since then the couple married on June 30, 2011, a few short months after the birth of their first child, Sophia Ruby. Peter is five years older than Abbey and even though he is star soccer player I’m still amazed that he was able to settle down with a girl as gorgeous as Abbey. In Peter’s own words, when asked what he would be if he wasn’t a footballer, Peter replied, “a virgin”. Maybe it’s that sense of humour that landed this hottie.
