Amanda Louise “Mandy” Smith (born 17 July 1970) is an English former pop singer and model.

Early life

Mandy Smith was convent educated, and lived in Tottenham as a young child. She met Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman when she attended the BPI Awards with her sister Nichola Smith. She also modelled for Boy and Katherine Hamnett. She became famous due to her relationship with Wyman. The story broke in 1986, on her return from Marbella, Spain.

Music career

In 1986, Smith was to be interviewed on Irish television show Saturday Live, but cancelled when broadcaster RTÉ decided she would be interviewed from a seat in the audience rather than on the set. RTÉ said she was “not important enough” and that she might “give a bad example to young teenage girls”. The story appeared in the international media.
