Hi there, welcome to my website — thanks for visiting!
I have a brilliant job and have been very lucky over the years — not only presenting weather, but recording pet psychology pilots, testing quiz formats, fronting countryside programmes and light-hearted news features. Who wouldn’t be happy performing at charity concerts, flying with Peter Pan, swimming with sea lions or feeding lettuce to sharks?
Never one to sit on the sidelines, some gigs have set my heart racing: like piloting a flimsy Extra 300 to perform aerial acrobatics, trampolining at the national competition or abseiling off Birmingham’s ICC for charity. Always injecting a bit of personality into everything I do, I try to tackle the brief from a different angle - check out this quirky BRITS clip.
I love hosting all sorts of corporate events and ladies’ nights, and specialise in fronting glittering awards ceremonies — in all kinds of amazing locations.
Memories are made of this...
Can you believe I’ve presented in a tropical rainforest in the heart of Piccadilly Circus, in the House of Lords, a big top circus ring or 60m under the sea in the world’s only submarium?
I've worked alongside legends of theatre and entertainment such as Michael Crawford, Norman Wisdom and Danny La Rue... interviewed popular bands JLS, Duran Duran and The Saturdays and stellar characters such as Robbie Williams... also soap stars and actors Joan Collins, Michael Praed and Nigel Havers.
It’s been a rollercoaster journey… films, lifestyle interviews with glossy magazines, attending celebrity chef competitions, working with Stephen Fry’s comedy team, the three weeks I spent in Switzerland for Sony... such memories.
Working with the best...
I felt extremely privileged to appear in a Forces Sweetheart calendar and am delighted to be a Media Team regular for the Fairford Royal International Air Tattoo. I’ve met some really interesting people and worked with the best, brightest and funniest colleagues ever.
Of course I couldn’t have done it on my own — Kiss Me Kate have provided me with some stunning gowns as you’ll see from the galleries, Faceworx — the make-up — and I’d like to thank everyone who has helped me along the way, from TV's legendary Light Entertainment producer, Paul Jackson and Jasper Carrott’s agent in the early days… to Mick at Aston Villa who, after a long journey to reach the ground for an event just recently, made me a ‘bostin’ cup of tea!
DJ Graham Mack’s tribute song and radio campaign to ‘cure’ my ‘bye bye’ was a highlight. Having attributed my high-pitched catchphrase to a helium balloon addiction, Graham came up with his genius song, which inspired a series of other ‘bye bye’ tributes (among the best, this Trent FM ‘Emma Jesson N Sync remix’)
In my eyes however, Graham’s original remains unsurpassed.
My journey continues and I look forward to meeting many more fantastic people.
Have a look around and feel free to get in touch, whether you want to enquire about booking me for an event, an ambassadorial opportunity or simply to say ‘hi’.
Just remember… I do all the warm front gags… OK?
