About Me

*Deborah Jay Kelly* has been Modelling and Acting since she was 17 years old and has appeared on countless TV shows for BBC, ITV, ITV2, Channel 4, Channel 5 and other Sky TV shows.
She started by dancing on Top Of The Pops along with numerous Music Videos. Having choreographed 40 Fashion Shows for Charity she began her long standing career in Television. She has now presented and modelled in 900 fashion shows and events.
Deborah Jay Kelly is now a familiar face of Reality TV, Film, Modelling, Catwalk and Dance. ‘I am told that I am an amazing, talented and sought after lady who is inspirational!
‘I would like to do so much more to help and encourage those that need support. My future plan is to create a new way of thinking in terms of beauty with a new style of ‘Fashion Shows and Talent Contests’. These would be aimed at those who have suffered illness, those that are disabled and those that do not fit into the category of being visually beautiful but shine from the inside!
Having suffered from a debilitating illness for 10 years I feel that I want to reach out to those who may have suffered and recognise them for who they are’ says Deborah Jay Kelly.
Her dream was made a reality by 'Model Diaries UK' series 1 and 2 which made number 1 Bestsellers in a few days. 'I am changing the concepts of how people view fashion for women 50+ and I don't intend to change'
An excellent ‘role model’ for Confident Older Women she had her own Beauty Show offering quick tips for hair and beauty’ in 2017.
Worked as a part-time model, dancer and actress since I was 17, I have lots of experience, am versatile and absolutely shine in front of the Camera! .
‘Whenever I am filmed, I am told that I am a ‘Natural in front of the Camera’ but there is so much more
‘Women should be celebrated and recognised for their talents and beauty at every age and this is something I would like to change’
I do more Modelling now and feel more confident and beautiful as a mature model and hope to continue into very old age!

I am Talented, Double Jointed and a real Go-Getter- I trained as a Latin American Dancer from the age of 6, and Won competitions so many years running that the organizers rigged the competition to stop me winning the final year! I have danced on Top Of The Pops with Haircut 100, Sique Sigue Sputnik, Bananarama and Depeche Mode. In one shoot I wore a pink plastic basque and spray on trousers and had to wave a bent talked tulip in the air during the Captain Sensible song ‘Happy Talk’. I danced in a Rozalla and Depeche Mode video. I was a Majorette that performed double baton in the ‘Battle of the Flowers’ in Jersey. I have not danced for many years now though!
