Her History in FHM's 100 Sexiest Women
2001 #46 | 2000 #41 | 1999 #10 | 1998 #8 |
Melanie shot to fame after being extremely good looking in a series of Boddingtons television ads in the late nineties.
Mel appeared on the cover of FHM in September 1997 along with Denise Van Outen, Melinda Messenger and Donna Air.
She had a career renaissance in daytime TV, presenting Today with Des and Mel, Loose Women and Gene Detectives.
She's dated Matt Goss and Max Beesley, and is now divorced.
Before a stunning brunette asked “Do you want a flake in that, love?” in a dulcet northern tone, few believed drinking bitter to be a sexy activity. After selling us Boddingtons dressed in a bikini and a saucy ice cream vendor outfit (thank God our local ice cream man doesn’t dress so skimpily), Melanie Sykes graduated to bigger things: a regular slot on the Big Breakfast, an FHM cover shoot and two top ten finishes in FHM’s 100 Sexiest poll. It’s been more than ten years since she and her fellow “British TV Babes” donned their finest black lingerie on a memorable fold-out cover, but an appearance in November 2008 issue proved she is still one of the hottest talents on the idiot box.
