Rachel Sophia Adina Christie (born c. 24 July 1988) is a British beauty pageant contestant, model and athlete who was briefly Miss England 2009, and the first black woman to hold the title.
In 2015, she returned to the public eye, having appeared on Love Island. Her stint was short lived and was eliminated in Week 2.
Christie is the niece of former Olympic sprint champion Linford Christie, who, along with Ron Roddan, serves as her coach. She was born to Russell Christie (Linford's brother). At the age of 34, Russell Christie was stabbed in the neck with a Swiss Army knife. She was eight years old.
She became the first black winner of Miss England in 2009. She was mentored by supermodel Caprice and was invited by Naomi Campbell to walk in her Fashion for Relief Haiti catwalk show to raise funds for 2010 Haiti earthquake.
In June 2015, she was announced in the line up for the revived reality show Love Island appearing on the show for two weeks.
Since launching a perfume, she has also announced she is becoming a publisher and is launching her own online lifestyle and fitness magazine, called Going for Gold. She is due to release its first issue in early 2016. Christie is also currently penning her autobiography.
In the early hours of 2 November 2009, Christie was arrested on suspicion of assaulting Miss Manchester Sara Beverley Jones, 24, at a Manchester nightclub. There was an altercation with Miss Jones which was caught on CCTV. Greater Manchester Police had agreed Christie hadn't committed any crime and was released without charge or caution. Upon her exit from the police station, news of the alleged fight had already made headlines and the speculation intensified and Christie subsequently announced her withdrawal from the Miss World competition. She then relinquished her Miss England crown. The crown was passed on to the runner-up in the 2009 pageant, Katrina Hodge.
