Jodie Kidd has declared that she has quit modelling for good.
The 29-year-old supermodel – currently competing in BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing – told the Daily Mail newspaper she will not be returning to catwalk – but insists that claims she was dumped by her modelling agency are false.
Jodie said: “I’ve been there and I’ve done that and I won’t be going back to modelling again. I’ve had lots of approaches recently and large fashion houses have contacted me. It’s flattering, but I’m not interested. I’ve moved on.
“I actually left the fashion business of my own accord – I wasn’t dumped. You won’t see me on the catwalk again.”
The model was dropped as the face of Marks & Spencer credit card last year after she was exposed by the News Of The World for allegedly supplying cocaine and admitting to regularly using the drug herself.
Jodie has just designed her own range of clothes for fashion label Oli.
She said: “I haven’t done a fashion course, but I’ve had 15 years of the best training there is.
“I got to work closely with Karl Lagerfeld, who is a genius – though I don’t call him up for advice. I think he’s a bit too busy to come and look at my new trouser suit.”
