Myleene Klass

It's hard to know which description best sums up Myleene Klass. Musician, TV presenter, author, businesswoman or model? Interviewer, columnist, pop star, designer, DJ or mother?

The simple truth is, Myleene is all of these things - and so much more. Looking at her extraordinary CV, it's hard to believe how much this young woman has managed to pack into her career so far. Even more astonishing is how she manages to keep her feet on the ground and remain one of the most respected and well-loved personalities in the UK.
