Over the last 15 years I’ve presented on-screen for the BBC and ITV as well as fronting commercials, corporates and training films. I’ve been described as smart and warm, with a natural on-screen flair and an instinct for what’s needed to produce great content, as well as the ability to deliver it.
Which is nice.
I’ve presented for BBC and ITV, and fronted commercials, corporates and training films.
That’s included interviewing celebrities (like Dolly Parton and Richard E Grant) for Heaven and Earth Show (BBC One), and exploring Cathedral Cities (ITV), towns with a Royal Association (By Royal Appointment, ITV), and interesting foodie places (Taste of the South, ITV).
I’ve interviewed winemaking expert and businessman Tony Laithwaite, directly selling hundreds of cases of his wine (Flying Winemakers, ITV), toured Andalucia for Real Estate TV, and sold thousands of holidays on various channels over very many years (including Cruise 1st TV, Thomas Cook TV, Travel Channel).
I’ve also fronted corporate training, sales videos and apps, and presented awards ceremonies.
Without knowing it, you’ll have heard me introducing your favourite programmes on many BBC TV channels over the past 20 years. I loved being a staff announcer on BBC One, BBC Two, and the launch announcer on what was BBC Choice.
Then after taking the plunge to go freelance, I was the voice of BBC Four for 4 years, and since 2006 I’ve been heard globally as the sole announcer on the TV channel BBC World News, with an audience of 85million. Which seems a bit scary when you see it written down.
