Welcome to the website of Cordelia Simpson, Mother, Presenter, Model, Fitness Instructor.
Here is my showreel:
After studying at the Italia Conti stage school and London Studio Centre I entered the world of commercial dance. I spent the next four years working with top artists like Beyoncé, Black Eyed Peas, Tom Jones, Whitney Houston and 50 Cent – to name but a few!
In 2003 my first child Carma was born. I was a single mum so I had to juggle dancing and motherhood. When Carma was one year old I met my now husband Bob. Finding myself pregnant again, I decided to hang up my dancing shoes and concentrate on the children. Two more followed in close succession! Carma is fifteen now, Tink is thirteen, Sonny is twelve and Lulu is nine.
Carma landed a lead roll in CBBC ‘s successful drama ‘The Dumping Ground’ in 2016 playing lead character ‘Candi- Rose’. She is currently filming her third series with them.
While bringing up the kids, I trained to become a qualified fitness instructor and a Les Mills Body Balance teacher. It was a busy time – teaching up to 6 classes a week and volunteering my coaching skills at my children’s gymnastics club.
When my youngest child, Lulu started school I was able to pursue a career in commercial modelling. I now work regularly in this industry with clients that include: QVC, Google, Haven, Argos, Women’s Own and Furniture Village. I have also featured in several commercials- sometimes with the kids! These have included ads for Coca Cola, Nestle, ITV, Asda, Nestlé, Garnier and Tassimo .
This year 2018 I have been working regularly as a presenter after putting together my showreel the end of last year I have been really fortunate to have landed regular work presenting for Giffords Circus at numerous events and for use on their social media.

2018 January HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! New year, new beginnings! This year has started with a bang! My feet have hardly touched the ground, which I’m massively grateful for as this year’s main resolution is to try and earn a s*** load of money! Having 4 children pretty young, as you can imagine brings financial strain (especially when …
So this month I got to feature Trendco’s brochure featuring ‘me’. The shoot took place in the summer at a basement studio in Brighton and I was lucky enough to work with the lovely photographer Zara Clark and make up with Emma Pargeter. We laughed from beginning to end as my look changed from Whitney through …
