SHE’S danced her way to the bright lights of Las Vegas and graced the covers of beauty magazines.

Since leaving her home in North End, Portsmouth, Chloe Crawford’s life has been a whirlwind success.

The 26-year-old said: ‘I’ve been very lucky to be able to do a job I love and travel the world doing it.

‘There’s nothing like the rush you get from performing live on stage in front of hundreds or even thousands of people.’

Chloe started dancing in Las Vegas in 2012 and then became a magician’s assistant.

She said: ‘It’s so much fun entertaining people with magic as you get to the shock on people’s faces when they can’t figure out the trick.

‘In the next few years I’d like to continue.’

Chloe has been a covergirl for magazines including Tradeshow Lifestyles, and guest starred on Top Gear USA and other TV shows.

She said: I was lucky enough to be in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition last year, which was awesome because my mum was able to buy it at home as it’s international.’

Chloe went to Mayfield School and South Downs College and started dancing aged five at the Iris Barnes School of Dance.

She also has a famous grandad. Ray Crawford, 77, of Portchester, is an ex-Pompey and England striker.

He said one of his proudest moments was seeing Chloe in a production by the Iris Barnes school at the Portsmouth Guildhall.

‘She brought the house down,’ Mr Crawford said.
