Stunning fashion model and TV personality Cat Deeley may be the portrait of feminine beauty, but appearances can be deceiving. When the British-born celebrity was growing up in Sutton Coldfield, she was actually something of a tomboy, frequently tagging along with her brother Max. Soon, however, Deeley grew into a lovely-looking teen, and caught the eye of a modeling agency. After graduating from Bishop Vesey's Grammar School's Sixth Form College, she began modeling full-time, collecting contacts in the industry, and becoming a steadily more famous face. After two years, Deeley gave up modeling and became a TV personality, hosting such shows as CD: UK and Stars in Their Eyes. She was a fixture on MTV UK for years, also appearing on countless awards shows and specials, all while doing promotional work for upscale companies like Marks & Spencer until she finally decided to bridge the Atlantic and begin a career on American television. In 2006, Deeley took on hosting duties for the hit show So You Think You Can Dance, signing on to return for many consectuve years.
