Clara Amfo has unveiled her own Barbie doll coinciding with International Women's Day 2021, following in the footsteps of Dina Asher-Smith, Adwoa Aboah and Nicola Adams.
Clara, 36, has been Barbie-fied ahead of International Women’s Day to honour her work as a vocal advocate for racial equality, as she becomes as Barbie role model.

Barbie is celebrating female role models as part of its work to close the ‘dream gap’ – the point when young girls are said to begin to doubt they are as capable as boys.
The British presenter took to social media to share the collaboration, posting, "Filled with infinite gratitude for this moment. THANK YOU @BARBIE for making me your Role Model Doll for 2021. This is something I never imagined and it’s beautifully overwhelming TBH. To have this crafted so carefully from the skin tone to the hair texture is just !!!! @barbiestyle smashed it!".
Stars including world champion sprinter Dina Asher-Smith, model Adwoa Aboah and boxer Nicola Adams have all previously been turned into Barbie ‘Sheroes’ since 2015. Strictly Come Dancing star Clara, who hails from Kingston upon Thames in London, said, "I have been lucky enough to experience some really special moments in my professional life and to say that I am honoured to be named a Barbie role model would be an understatement."
The doll has Clara’s style, sporting a leather skirt and jacket and bright trainers, while she is holding a microphone.
