Nell McAndrew

Nell McAndrew (born Tracey Jane McAndrew on 6 November 1973) is an English glamour model. She is also an accomplished amateur athlete, with a marathon personal best time of 2:54:39.

McAndrew was born in Leeds on 6 November 1973. She has an older sister and two younger brothers. After leaving school she briefly worked as a bank clerk for the Yorkshire Bank.

McAndrew first signed up with a modelling agency as the result of a suggestion by her hairdresser. She started her modelling career as a catalogue and magazine model and as a Marilyn Monroe lookalike. For a modelling assignment in Germany, she was required to shave her head. In the UK she appeared in the Daily Star as a Page Three girl but it was her role as the Lara Croft model for the video game Tomb Raider between 1998 and 1999 that brought her to the public's attention. McAndrew was fired from her stint as Croft in 1999 after posing hot for Playboy. This was partly due to Playboy printing references to Lara Croft and Tomb Raider on the cover, which were removed when Eidos, the maker of the game, threatened a lawsuit.

She has since enjoyed a successful career as a glamour model, frequently appearing in FHMMaxim and Loaded. She has also appeared in fitness magazines, including Shape and Personal Trainer.

McAndrew, affectionately referred to as a Forces Sweetheart, has visited the UK Armed Forces at bases all over the world.

She has had a television career as a presenter on Racing RivalsBorn to FightIt's a Knockout and The Big Breakfast. She has been a contestant on various gameshows and reality shows including Fort BoyardI'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!Celebrities Under PressureFamily Fortunes and Dancing On Ice.

Her first fitness video, Peak Energy was released in 2002 and became a best seller. It was followed up by Maximum Impact in December 2003 and Ultimate Challenge, Ultimate Results in December 2004.

In 2003 she was voted the Yorkshire Woman of the Year and in 2005 she won Rear of the Year.

McAndrew has been part of a number of PR campaigns for Yorkshire Water, including a digital version of herself in their Sewer Raider item on the company website. She also fronted an advertising campaign for Activia Yoghurt. 


In January 2009, McAndrew helped Benenden Healthcare Society, a mutual not-for-profit healthcare organisation, launch their "Fresh Start, Get on Track" campaign, appearing in nationwide radio interviews and online webchats.
