England, United Kingdom (PressExposure) March 15, 2009 -- The best known of Rooneyâs many achievements is her ITV show Coleenâs Real Women, where she gives normal women a chance at a career in modelling.
On the hugely popular show, women who are interested in becoming a model try out for roles in high profile ad campaigns. The real women pit themselves against professional models.
One of the great successes of the show is that it provides encouragement and inspiration for thousands of young women out there who are thinking about becoming a model.
According to Damian OâConnor, Managing Director of large UK modelling agency Models Direct, the show has made a real impact.
âThereâs no question that weâve noticed the effect of shows such as Collenâs Real Women on the number of people who have come to us asking about starting a modelling career,â says OâConnor.
âObviously this is partly because of the main focus of the show, which is letting normal women have a go at becoming a model, and seeing how they do up against the professionals. But a large part of the inspiration comes from Coleen Rooney herself. She comes across as a real, authentic person who hasnât been changed by all the fame, money, and showbiz pals that she is surrounded by,â he says.
Sure enough, Rooney is intensely proud of her Liverpudlian roots and hasnât been caught up in the celebrity glitz and glam.
Instead, she has focused on building a successful career to rival her famous footballer husband Wayne. As well as her TV show, she has a successful autobiography, perfume, and fitness DVD to her name.
