Scott Henshall, who was born in York, graduated with a BA in fashion design from Northumbria University in 1997, and made his catwalk debut at London Fashion Week in February 1998.

He was creative director of Mulberry, before he left to develop his own label further.

The Telegraph reported on a visit of his to see the Queen:

" ... invited to Buckingham Palace to meet the Queen, Henshall refused to wear a tie - choosing instead to wear a simple diamond cross around his neck, worth £30,000.

"'You've got to look a bit sparkly when you are meeting Queenie,' he told me yesterday."

Scott Henshall's designs have been worn by many celebs including Madonna, Victoria Beckham, Angelina Jolie (her Oscars dress), Paris Hilton and Tamara Beckwith - the last three of whom's dresses were stolen from Henshall's car.

One of Scott Henshall's most famous creations is the £5 million dress that Samantha Mumba wore to the Spiderman 2 premiere - reportedly, at the time, the world's most expensive dress.

Scott Henshall has done various work to support the charity Ovarian Cancer Action.

Scott Henshall did not do brilliantly at the tasks in I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here and was the second person to be voted off the 2006 series.
