FLAKE GIRL`S SWEET RETURN
Nearly two decades after her silk underwear-clad figure, provocatively nibbling a chocolate bar, sent sales of Cadbury Flake soaring, Deborah Leng is poised to return to modelling.
I can disclose that Deborah, now 45 and a mother of three, has signed with leading agency Models1, along with fellow TV advert pin-up Sharon Maughan, wife of actor Trevor Eve.
Yesterday Deborah, the former partner of Queen drummer Roger Taylor, was enjoying the Cartier-sponsored Goodwood Festival Of Speed with the couple`s children Rufus, 17, Tiger Lily, 13, and Lola, eight.
"I got in contact with a friend at Models1 and I am in the process of making a new portfolio," she tells me. "I shall soon be traipsing the streets on my way to castings."
Once a squeeze of David Bowie and David Essex, she created a sensation in 1987 when she became the iconic Flake girl. But she was axed three years later for being "too sexy".
Looking at the classic cars on show, she said: "Since I was tiny, I always wanted an E-type Jaguar.
"On my 40th birthday, Roger said I could either have the car or have a party. I chose the party but I don`t regret it, as it was pretty spectacular."
Flake girl’s fashion line
Two decades ago, her scantily clad figure nibbling a chocolate bar sent sales of Cadbury’s Flake soaring.
Now, with a new — and younger — man in her life, model Deborah Leng is embarking on a career as a fashion designer.
Deborah, 47, who was the long-term partner of Queen drummer Roger Taylor, by whom she has three children, is dating poet and TV presenter Charlie Ottley, 39, who she describes as ‘incredibly supportive in whatever I do’.
Debbie and business partner Fabio de Freitas have created FAB Couture, and pledge to make their clothing in Europe.
‘We want to spread the message that clothing does not need to be made in places like Bangladesh and China. Our first 12-piece collection is entirely made from Bennett Silks, a British company founded in 1904,’ she tells me.
