Meet Joanna Chimonides, who was the first female to join our Webbe Industries family.
Joanna was born in 1996, growing up in London with her mum, dad, two brothers and one sister – family was a big part of her upbringing having very close relationships with each member of her family. You could say that is the Greek Cypriot in her – family and food being two of her favourite things.
After successfully completing her school education and an undergraduate Psychology BSc degree in Leicester,
Joanna experienced her taste of the modelling industry by working with small brands in their advertising campaigns. Joanna's career stepped up to the next level when she joined our Webbe Industries family and the summer cast of ITV2's Love Island in 2019.
Since then, Joanna has been a regular feature in the press, has presented on radio for FUBAR Radio, become the co-host on a popular BBC Radio 1 podcast and graced our screen on BBC's Eating With My Ex.
Joanna has also launched her own fast-growing YouTube channel, and collaborated with brands including Pandora, Nike, JD Sports, Missguided, boohoo, boohooMAN, Iconic, Rebellious Fashion, Shein, GHD, Missy Empire, Boux Avenue, SIMMI, Public Desire, Tanologist, Coco & Eve, Quiz Clothing and many more.
Recently, you may also recognise Joanna from being a regular face for JD Sports in their live shopping features, gracing Ann Summer’s shop windows and digital campaigns for their Halloween campaign and appearing in the 2021 star-studded JD Sports Christmas advert alongside Maya Jama, Aitch, KSI; plus, a whole host of other popular celebrity faces.

Introducing Francesca Allen – our Essex-born Brunette Bombshell.
Francesca, to her friends and family known as ‘Fran’, was born in November 1995 and grew up in Redbridge, Essex with her parents, Barbara and Laurence, older brother, Laurence and older sister, Claudia – Fran has always been family-oriented with loyalty and protectiveness in her Scorpio blood.
During her school years, Fran’s favourite subjects were Art and Textiles which is where her passion for all-things Fashion and Beauty began. To anyone who already knows Fran, it also won’t come as a surprise that ‘chatterbox’ often frequented her school reports! When her school years concluded, Fran embarked on her next venture and headed to college to study studying Beauty Therapies. It wasn’t long after leaving college that Fran came into her own as she started working with her sister in Fashion and that’s where Bonnie & Clyde 162 was born. Interestingly, Fran isn’t a shopper who procrastinates searching through the aisles endlessly – she knows what she wants, and she goes and gets it!
Fran is very open and attracts those around her with her endearing, unapologetically real personality – a fun fact you won’t know about her from her childhood is that she used to charge her friends to pimp up their trainers and would only ever style up and wear charity shop purchases.
It was during 2019 when Fran decided to embark on a new type of adventure, joining the cast of ITV2’s Love Island.
There’s no denying that Fran became the season stylist in the villa – piecing outfits together for all of the girls to put their best foot forward and find love. Since leaving the villa, Fran has had her fair share of accolades and achievements – to name a few she’s had her very own In The Style edit, worked with Naomi Campbell for Fashion for Relief, been a guest on Planet Radio's Kiss FM, appeared on the front cover of Absolutely Essex, and is regularly featured in the showbiz headlines and in OK! Magazine for outfit inspiration.

Our latest addition to the Webbe Industries family, Tyler Cruickshank, is best known from being a memorable face from the seventh season of ITV2's Love Island, finishing in fourth place.
Growing up in South London with his mum, dad and two brothers – Tyler was extremely close to his family and followed in their footsteps by focusing on education and excelling academically.
During Tyler's school years, he played every sport imaginable and represented his school and even his county in Football and Athletics while also playing semi-profession football for Croydon Athletic. Sadly, his bright-looking future in football took a turn for the worse when he suffered a drastic knee injury and was side-lined for two years. From this point in his upbringing, Tyler found his escape in the gym and went on to study Law at St Mary's University in London.
Modelling and Television has always been an avenue that he wanted to explore, and he's not shy to a compliment or two, suggesting he should pursue that pathway. During University, Tyler was approached by top modelling agencies, but studying Law was always priority and he passed on the opportunity to give the flashing lights of the photographer's camera a good go. Tyler finally decided after his degree to chance his arm when he was scouted to jet off to the sunny Balearic Island, Mallorca, to look for love.
With Tyler's enviable looks, towering presence and academic background, he is one to watch as we embark on his journey post-Love Island. Since leaving the villa, Tyler has already worked with brands including Spotify, Couture Club, Sony Pictures UK, boohooMAN, plus more. He's even Skydived with ISAWITFIRST for Homeless House Charity!

The much-loved “Singing Dentist” has since gained a huge following on social media with his online videos gaining over 250 million views combined.

He has written for and been written about in numerous publications and has been voted the Number 1 ‘Most Influential person’ in Dentistry three times in the last four years.
He is undoubtedly one of the most recognisable dentists in the world, managing to bridge the gap between the dentist and the general public, and as a result, patients travel from all over the world to see him in his clinic in Hampshire. He has also been a key opinion leader for many brands and has lectured extensively both in the UK and abroad.

Meet the lovely Amelia. Born in 1997 in the beautiful Berkshire countryside into a big family, Amelia being the youngest of five with one sister and three brothers (plus two dogs – how could we forget them?). Her upbringing took her on many paths but it’s safe to say, you can take the girl out of the countryside but can’t take the countryside out of the girl!
During her school years, Amelia chose to study Psychology, Dance and History. Amelia’s love of dance began at the age of three when she started attending classes, until she was 19 years old when the desire to travel took control. Before university, Amelia headed on an enviable adventure for six months to Japan, Thailand, Philippines, Bali, Australia and Los Angeles (Jealous much?).
In 2020, Amelia graduated from the University of Sussex in Psychology. She loved learning about people, how they behave, what acts on their subconscious behaviour, their brains and well, EVERYTHING! It was during university that Amelia discovered her love for weight training and fitness which is when she first created her Fitness-focused Instagram, posting work outs and recipes. Although Amelia is a Libra, who are known for being indecisive. One thing she’s not decisive about is the direction she’s taking. Fashion has always been a huge part of her life. When she’s not working out, you might (most probably will) find her scrolling on ASOS for hours on end to find the latest pieces – her favourite brands range from Zara through to Nike, Adidas, and Urban Outfitters. Who else’s style depends on their mood? Amelia eats, sleeps and breathes body positivity, promoting her weight gain on her fitness Instagram as an empowering process which men and women should not be afraid of. This is when her Instagram really started to take off!
Amelia has already worked with a whole host of brands from Bulk Powers, MyProtein and Women’s Best through to Topshop, Bo+Tee, Lounge Underwear, I Saw It First, Bondi Sands, PrettyLittleThing, and Mejuri.
Introducing Shanae and Renae – known to many avid TikTok scrollers or Instagram double-tappers as the Nel Twins – were born in 2000 to their African Zimbabwean and British parents in Hampshire.
If the news of having twins wasn’t enough of a surprise to the family, more sparkle came when Shanae and Renae discovered their love of entertaining people and being in front of a camera. Perhaps their TikTok fame was written in their stars all along!
With creativity in their veins, it was only right that they studied Performing Arts, Theatre Studies and Dance during their time at Barton Peveril College. Fast forward to 2018, Shanae and Renae found themselves pondering what was next for them. It was then that they decided to set up their joint TikTok profile and were shocked to see how quickly they rose in popularity with viral and trending videos – one of their videos hitting 7.7million views! Although they were very much used to being twins, others found their identical looks and personalities mesmerising. Well, can you tell them apart? Psst: the clue is in the small moles on Shanae’s neck and one below Renae’s lip.
This TikTok whirlwind has taken them on many adventures (both virtually and physically), creating their own lip gloss brand, securing brand collaborations with the likes of PrettyLittleThing and growing a following with fans from across the world.
Since starting their social media adventure, they’ve grown a significant amount in a small space of time and are growing by the day.
