Melinda Messenger

Melinda Jayne Messenger (born 23 February 1971) is an English ex-glamour model, Page 3 Girl and current television presenter. She formerly presented the magazine programme Live from Studio Five and is currently co-broadcaster of the reality show Cowboy Builders.

Messenger was born in Swindon, Wiltshire, the middle child between two brothers, Jamie and Warren. Her parents Terry and Avis divorced when she was aged five. After attending different schools, one of which, Dorcan Technology College, she spent six months working as a flight attendant for Britannia Airways. Messenger later joined a local marketing company, rising to become customer services manager, overseeing a staff of 50.

Having dated since they met at his local Swansea night club, Messenger married Welshman Wayne Roberts in Bali, Indonesia, on 26 November 1998. The couple have three children: Morgan Kelly (born 7 April 2000), Flynn Jefferson (born 2002) and Evie Brooke (born December 2003). As Messenger suffered from post-natal depression after the birth of her second and third children she decided not to have any more even though she planned to have a large family. In 2003, Messenger won Quality Street "Celebrity Mum of the Year". Roberts runs a Swindon-based electronics company, of which Messenger is a director.

In 2005, Messenger became concerned for the education of her children, and although Messenger and Roberts had just completed renovation of their Wanborough-based 25-room former rectory, Messenger insisted that they move closer to a Steiner-Waldorf school in Reading, Berkshire. This brought tensions into the couple's relationship, and, as a result, they separated on 15 April 2008, later re-uniting that same month to discuss their split for a photo-spread in Hello! On 22 January 2009, Messenger was made an Ambassador to Barnardo's by its president, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. In November 2012, it was announced that Messenger had split from Roberts once again. However they plan to try and remain good friends for the sake of their children and both of them have visitation for their children.
