More About Lorraine Pascale's Family

Lorraine Pascale is of Caribbean descent as she was born to Caribbean Parents in Hackney.

She was born at The Mothers' Hospital and fostered in Leytonstone immediately after birth.

Adopted at 18 months old, the model-turned-chef was brought up in Witney, Oxfordshire by a caucasian couple called Roger and Audrey Woodward. 

Her adoptive mother was a nurse, and her father was a multilingual Spanish academic who taught at Oxford.

Sadly, her adoptive parents divorced when she was three years old, and Pascale stayed with her mother. 

Her tragedy continued as her mother became very ill, and could not take care of her, at which point, aged seven, she began to be fostered by various families.

After a year of being fostered, she returned to her mother and met up with her father who had since remarried and had a daughter.

Pascale then won a Buttle Trust scholarship and started her education at a boarding school in Devon. 

Pascale has an older brother and a younger half-sister. She has stated that she does know her biological parents' identity and that they have four other children.

However, the model has sternly stated that she does not wish to re-establish contact, stating that not only does she know all of their identity, but that some of them are in London.

She has worked with countless other adoption and fostering agencies.
