Cassie Sumner, first famous for her nightclub encounter with Prince Harry, claimed her WAG status when she was in a relationship with Michael Essien. However, Michael denied this relationship while the reality TV show, WAGs Boutique, was being aired.

This prompted the debate as to whether Cassie should even be a contestant on the WAGs Boutique show. Yet it seems her appeal goes beyond her relationship with Michael – in May 2007, she was voted No.1 Most Popular Celebrity Babe by the readers of Britain’s biggest-selling newspaper, News Of The World. Cassie was named as one of Britain’s Top 20 models in lads’ magazine, Nuts, and as one of Britain’s Hottest 100 Girls by FHM magazine.

Cassie in the Media

Cassie first appeared on TV screens in the ITV1 show Poor Little Rich Girls. Since then, she’s appeared in photo shoots and features for publications including Playboy, Ice, OK!, Nuts, Zoo, Loaded, Fast Car, Max Power, Front, Penthouse, New, The Express, Daily Star and News Of The World. Other TV appearances include Dream Team, Cassie’s Crib and Al Murray’s Happy Hour.

Cassie’s Relationships

Cassie Sumner, a multi-WAG, has been linked with numerous celebrities, including chef Jean Christophe Novelli, TV presenter Russell Brand, actor Ben Freeman, artist David Wilcox and footballer Carlton Cole.

Friction on WAGs Boutique

During the filming of WAGs Boutique, Cassie Sumner and Michaela Henderson-Thynne had to be pulled apart by fellow contestants after a fight. It began when Cassie challenged Michaela’s knowledge of fashion guru Vivienne Eastwood. Although unrelated, it seems ironic that both Cassie and Michaela were dethroned from their WAG status before the series had finished airing.

The latest news is that Cassie Sumner has landed a TV documentary and is to launch her own fashion and lingerie boutique. With a track record like Cassie’s, it’s probably best to wait until the facts are confirmed before bringing out the champagne.
