Full name: Angel Cole
Hometown: London
Age: 19
Favourite model: Jourdan Dunn
Favourite designers: Vivienne Westwood, Balmain

Angel lives with her mum and sister in a flat in North London. She's very close and protective of her mum because of the difficulties she's experienced in her life. However, Angel has a rough relationship with her father because he is unsupportive of her dreams and he was disappointed she came out to him.

Angel wants to be the first openly gay model on the show and she wants to pave the way for others. She's been watching BNTM for a long time and even though she applied, she never thought she would ever get a call back. Having been subjected to bullying and isolation due to her sexuality, she's grown to be very strong, and as she is very passionate about a career in modelling, she is wiling to do any work she can get for experience.
