Francoise Boufhal (born on December 18, 1988) is an English model, actress and presenter.
Boufhal's acting career began at the age of 11 when she joined The Live Theatre company, a theatrical youth theatre based in Newcastle made famous by Robson Green. Boufhal's first major role was in the hit children's BBC 1 show Byker Grove, where she played Ellie Baines, Stumpy's girlfriend. Boufhal auditioned several times for a role in the show but was deemed 'too sexy', until eventually a part was made for the curvaceous actress. Her body grew very fast. At the age of 16 she became 'very curvy' and her chest size had increased rapidly. (At the age of 11, she was 28B. By the age of 14, 28D. By 16 she was her full size.) She had a slim figure but was not generally considered tall, which presented difficulty in her acting and modelling career. Boufhal was, however, in the pilot for GRUBBS, a children's cookery program scheduled to be regularly on the Discovery Kids channel.
At 5 feet 4 inches (1.63 m), and having a 28H chest, Boufhal was rejected by fashion houses for being too short and having an 'unusual' figure'.
Boufhal has appeared in Nuts as "Nuts Next Top Model", Zoo, and was Maxim's April 2009 cover girl. The Daily Star has claimed she is their "latest discovery" set to follow in the footsteps of Kelly Brook and Lucy Pinder.
Francoise is featured in a non-pictorial article in the June 2010 issue of Playboy USA.
