Keeley Rebecca Hazell was born in Lewisham, a southeast suburb of London but was raised in Bromley, another nearby London suburb. At the age of 13 Keeley's parents separated, making her years in school more difficult. Attending Bromley's Ravensbourne School until the age of 16 where she was often truant, Keeley would leave high school to become an apprentice hairdresser. It wasn't long until she was already looking past that with ambitions to become a model. Keeley would soon enter a contest titled "Search for a Beach Babe," ran by British tabloid The Daily Star. She would win this contest, finding early success in the world of modeling.
This wasn't enough to quit her hairdressing career though, as she soon enrolled in a fashion course at Lewisham College later in early 2004. Six months passed and Keeley submitted several pictures to another British tabloid. The Sun's "Page 3 Idol" contest was a longtime goal of Keeley's and she would win in December of 2004. Awarded with £10,000 worth of clothing and an exclusive one-year contract modeling with The Sun, Keeley would soon become one of the most popular girls featured in the pages. She would go through several representatives, some of which included Girl Management, Frank White Agency, and Jon Fowler. The last of which represents such people as George Michael
and Kelly Brook
Her success only continued after that with 2006 being a huge year for the young model. She would appear on the cover of Maxim in June of 2005 and later that year for FHM in September. That same year Keeley played a minor role in the British film Cashback
, as well as put out her own calendar. As of 2008, Keeley is posing exclusively for Zoo and FHM magazines.
