She was born in Lewisham, London, England, grew up in Grove Park, and attended the Ravensbourne School in Bromley. Her mother, Amber, is a dinner lady and her father, Roy, is a window fitter; they separated when she was thirteen. She has an older sister, Roxanne, and a younger sister, Georgia.
As a teenager, Hazell was a frequent truant and stayed out late on school nights drinking. She confesses to having only taken five GCSE examinations due to being ejected from several of them; however, she did well in mathematics and English despite suffering from dyslexia.
Hazell currently lives in an apartment in Docklands. She has been involved in two automobile accidents, the first of which was in 2005. In the course of a car crash Hazell hit her face on a door pillar, causing it to swell for a time. In February 2006, she smashed her Mini Cooper into a lamp post. She suffered no major injuries, but says she did fear for her life.
In January 2006, Hazell made headlines when Chelsea F.C. football player Joe Cole was beaten up at a party held at her Grove Park house. She spoke to The Sun in March, denying rumours surrounding the incident.
In early January 2007, a sex tape of Hazell and ex-boyfriend Lloyd Miller was released on the internet. The video explicitly shows her performing oral sex for several minutes and then sexual intercourse. The video was shot while the two were on holiday in Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain during the previous year, on or about 30 May.
Following the tape's leak, Hazell was reported to have been very upset, and she called the police in an attempt to find out who leaked the tape. She also "obtained an injunction on grounds of privacy preventing any further publication or promotion of the video."
At sixteen years of age, Hazell left school to work at a hairdresser. Her colleagues persuaded her to try her luck at modelling (she later quit hairdressing) and enrolled at Lewisham College to start a City & Guilds in fashion, but was not at the college for very long. At seventeen, she competed in The Daily Star's Search for a Beach Babe contest and won. A friend told her about The Sun's Page 3 Idol competition. Despite some initial uncertainty about entering the contest, she submitted some photos. She was eventually chosen the winner in December 2004. She won £10,000 worth of sexy clothes and a one-year membership of the Rex cinema and bar. Three cast sculptures were made of her bust by sculptor Leigh Heppell. Two are in the Sun offices and one is in her house.
Another part of Hazell's Page 3 Idol win was a one-year exclusive glamour modelling contract with The Sun. She is currently being handled by Jon Fowler.
Hazell is regularly featured in Zoo and continues to appear in The Sun at least once every two weeks. She has been on the cover of The Sun's 2006 and 2007 Page 3 calendars, in addition to her own 2006 and 2007 wall calendars, the latter of which sold 30,000 in its first days of release.
Hazell was once offered a chance to appear in Playboy, but declined because she was not comfortable doing a full nude shoot.
Other media appearances
She is the face of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe's Formula One 06 video game for the PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, and F1 CE for PlayStation 3.
Hazell had a small role in the full-length version of Cashback, playing Naked Girl. She is currently in talks with producers to be in the upcoming Baywatch movie.
