Neri is back!

Published: 21st May 2023

As the striking title states – our super bubbly model Neri Zaccardelli is back…with a bang!

Neri is a Models Direct stalwart, having made numerous appearances on Ideal World TV – the UK’s top TV shopping channel. It sells thousands of products to millions of happy shoppers, so camera-friendly animated presenters are essential to its success. Ideal World TV typically broadcasts for 17 hours a day, which gives readers an idea of the scale of its selling power. Whilst Neri didn’t appear for 17 hours straight (think of the amount of coffee needed to pull that off!), her appearances always engage customers as she shares banter with other co-hosts.

Neri (check out her Instagram page: theonlynerizaccardelli) has been on our books since 2018. Her success has led to more work and a cult following (not to mention a few thousand pounds in modelling fees…yes, we negotiate the very best deals with our clients, who are always happy to pay for the best models). She had recently taken a well-earned break from TV work, but was delighted to be back on set once again, promoting products such as Pearl hair remover. Neri is so much more than a TV presenter; “TV personality” is nearer the mark, and we look forward to securing more TV work for her. After all, Ideal World TV were begging for her to join them again, so why change a winning formula? See Neri in all her glory.

The modelling star said, “I’ve worked with Models Direct since 2018 and I’ve always had great experiences with my bookings. I had another live TV show with Ideal World, modelling a different product and it was a lovely experience. The staff there are always so helpful and it’s so nice to go back somewhere, where they know your face. Thank you Charlie – always a superstar and the best agent ever!”

Charlie – take a bow!

Hire a model

Neri is a plus-size model who realised that dress size isn’t an obstacle to be a successful commercial model. In fact, if you don’t know by now, some of our clients are screaming for fuller figures for a variety of campaigns. Neri’s story and her comments ‘How did I get here‘ background can be enjoyed too.

Whilst we enjoy every success with all our models – whether for a multitude of bookings or a cheeky one-off assignment – it’s particularly pleasing to see a model blossom from unassuming beginnings to a fully-fledged star. Neri has been seen by hundreds of thousands of people, so the only burden with being a Models Direct model might be stopping in the street to sign a few autographs! We salute you, Neri, and welcome back on TV!

Fancy joining in the fun, making contacts, working with a terrific booking team and making some money? The best way to give yourself the best chance of being a commercial model is joining us. We’ll see what you have to offer, and put you forward to our huge list of clients. We’d like to hear from prospective models of any age, size and background – there are certainly no limitations, and previous experience is not needed!
