Growing up in Yorkshire within an idyllic middle-class family, two parents and a younger sister, our life together and adventures, our emigration to Africa and Australia, 10 schools in various regions and countries along the way.

Then came my success, winning the Miss UK contest and runner up to Miss World in 1985, which was aired on ITV, primetime and watched by millions of viewers, that’s when the fun really started.

The press, the public, appearances, TV shows, celebrities, drugs, my move to South Africa, marriage, divorce, modelling, boyfriends, mental abuse, violence, meeting my daughters’ father, the birth of our beautiful baby and the circumstances which changed the course of my life forever, motherhood, affairs, blackmail, private detectives, being a single parent, millionaires, and conmen to mention a few. 

The dating scene, kissing many frogs and my eventual happiness, finding love, and settling down after what seemed like a lifetime of searching.

Mandy was born in the UK but has resided throughout her life in Rhodesia (Zimbabwe), South Africa and Australia as well as many parts of the UK. She took part in Miss UK and Miss World in 1985, winning the title of Miss UK and gaining second place in the Miss World pageant. She modelled for 15 years of her life before retiring when her daughter was born. Mandy’s life has been far from the life expected of a beauty queen with many a roller coaster ride and extreme experiences along the way.
