BBC Trained

And covered by the media worldwide

I wasn’t one of those kids who dreamt of being on TV!

Mid-Atlantic I shared my feelings with a camcorder. On reaching dry land the BBC were so taken with the footage that the Six O’Clock News made a five minute feature out of it. All it took was that and an honest interview for BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour and things took off. I’ve now presented over 40 programmes for the BBC as well as working for ITV, Channel 5, CBBC and Sail TV. I gave up TV presenting when my children came along but still use my broadcasting skills daily on stage and during live virtual presentations.
