Description


Join Christopher Biggins in conversation with Lady Wilnelia Forsyth who will be talking about her life and career after winning the Miss World crown in 1975 and her family life with the British entertainer Sir Bruce Forsyth.

Born in Caguas, Puerto Rico, Wilnelia was crowned the first and only Miss World from the island in 1975. Her life since has been entrenched in fashion - signed by Eileen Ford in New York and worked as a model for Haute Couture houses such as Dior and Yves Saint Laurent in Paris. In 1983, Wilnelia married the British entertainer Sir Bruce Forsyth and started a family.

Lady Forsyth has always been influenced by and worked in the world of art, fashion and beauty. She graduated from the Turabo University of Puerto Rico with a BA Degree in Humanities with a concentration in History of Art, as well as undertaking studies in painting, sculpture and interior design, exploring her creativity.

In 1994 she formed ‘The Wilnelia Merced Forsyth Foundation‘, a non-profit organisation which aims to improve healthcare and education for children in her native Puerto Rico. A continuous project close to her heart.

Inspired by her childhood in Puerto Rico, Wilnelia has drawn on the beautiful fragrances of the Caribbean for the creation of her range of perfumed candles; Wilnelia Forsyth London. Working in association with top creative fragrance designers, she has distilled the essence of tropical sunshine into beautiful jars that glow with evocative scenes of Old San Juan – the design of which is taken from Wilnelia’s own artwork.

From PORRIDGE to I’M A CELEBRITY, Christopher Biggins has graced our screens for over thirty years. This multi talented actor, humourist, writer and general raconteur counts the worlds most glamorous stars as his best friends and brings his own inimitable sense of humour and warmth to any production.

Christopher won over a whole new audience when he was crowned King Of The Jungle after winning series 7 of the hit ITV1 show, I’M A CELEBRITY GET ME OUT OF HERE but his career began many years earlier.....
