Early life and career

Lancaster was brought up by parents Graham and Sally who were both regular gym-goers and encouraged a love of fitness. She also has a brother called Oliver. At the age of six Lancaster took up dance, learning tap, ballet and modern but decided to quit at the age of 16 due to her height and decided aerobics would better suit her frame. Six years later Lancaster became a certified fitness trainer. It was during this time when she was spotted by a model scout who suggested she should consider a career in modelling. Throughout the 1990s she was in a long-term relationship with city trader Mickey Sloan. They lived in Bermuda from 1996-1998 but separated in 1999. Around this time Lancaster also decided to learn about the other side of modeling and began taking photography classes.[2]

Ultimo

In 2002 Lancaster signed up to be the face of designer lingerie brand Ultimo for a reported £200,000. Lancaster was seen to be a success at promoting the brand raising its profile, especially in the United Kingdom, but two years later, Lancaster's contract was not renewed.[3]

Strictly Come Dancing

Lancaster was announced as one of the fourteen celebrities taking part in Strictly Come Dancing Series Five.

In Week 4, she was revealed as one of the bottom two participants. She and her partner (Ian Waite) were in the Week Six Dance-Off alongside Matt Di Angelo and were voted off.

Personal life

In 1999 Lancaster had the chance to meet singer Rod Stewart who offered to let her take photos of him whilst on tour.[4] When the pair began going out it caused a large tabloid interest as Stewart had recently separated from his wife and mother of two of his children Rachel Hunter.

Lancaster gave birth to her first child (Stewart's seventh child) a 7 lb, 7oz boy on 27 November 2005.[5] On 17 February 2011, it was announced that Lancaster had given birth to their second child, a boy.[6]

Lancaster and Stewart married on Saturday, 16 June 2007 at La Cervara near Portofino, Italy. The couple exchanged vows in the presence of 100 family and friends.[7]
