Jessica Taylor was born in Preston, a city in Northwest England. In 2001, she joined the cast of the reality television show Popstars, where she was cast in the pop group Liberty X. Very few reality stars actually make it big after the fact (with the exception of Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and Elisabeth Hasselbeck), but Taylor managed to hold onto the spotlight. Over the course of the next four years, Liberty X went on a nice run of chart success, with three studio albums debuting at No. 3, 12 and 27 on the UK charts, respectively.
Liberty X officially split up in 2007, the same year that Jessica Taylor married Kevin Pietersen, a South African cricketer. Earlier this year, Taylor appeared on the UK reality show Dancing on Ice, making it all the way to the finale episode, where she placed third. Most recently, she has appeared in a steamy ad campaign for Ultimo lingerie.
