David Gandy is a British model. He is the son of Brenda Janet (Rabey) and Christopher A. Gandy. He grew up in Essex, in a working-class family. For several years, Gandy was the lead male model for Italian designers Dolce & Gabbana who featured him in their campaigns and fashion shows.

He has stated:

People are always surprised when I speak. They can’t believe I am a born-and-bred Essex boy… Everyone asks me if there is Mediterranean in my blood — but my mum’s ancestors are Scottish and my dad is from East London.

David’s paternal grandparents are surnamed Gandy and Lewis.

David’s maternal grandfather is named James A. Rabey.

David’s maternal grandmother is Doreen Winifred Bruce (the daughter of Thomas F. Bruce and Dorothy E. Grover). Doreen was born in Paddington, London, England.

    There seems to be a lot of hate aimed at British people on this site. People don’t seem to want to accept that Britain can produce good looking people as well as talented people.
