I am one of the anchors on ITV's breakfast show Good Morning Britain, joining the show when it launched. We're on-air from 6am to 8.30am so I have a rather early alarm call of 2.40am! I've also appeared on several other TV shows including Celebrity Juice, Britain's Got More Talent, The Chase, Pointless and Tipping Point.
Before joining ITV I worked at Sky News for seven years on Sunrise with Eamonn Holmes. I also hosted my own daily show of breaking news and interviews. I anchored Sunrise live at the Olympics, and presented coverage of the Diamond Jubilee and Royal Wedding. I also hosted Sky News's BAFTA's show and presented live from LA on the Oscars red carpet.
I've interviewed not only a number of prominent politicians over the years, but also celebrities such as David Beckham, Oprah Winfrey and Sir Paul McCartney. I have also made guest appearances as a news presenter in the film 'Burnt' with Bradley Cooper, and also for both Diversity and The Wanted on their tours.
Every year I host cinema broadcasts of Andre Rieu concerts which are shown in hundreds of theatres across Europe, and I presented an in-depth documentary for Sky Arts called 'Andre Rieu: Behind the Music'.
I studied English Language and Literature at Manchester University and then completed a postgraduate diploma in Broadcast Journalism. I worked at ITN Radio before joining ITV Meridian as a producer and reporter. I co-presented the main regional show for four years and during that time also co-hosted the current affairs discussion series The Big Story.
I love travel and my articles have been published in The Mail on Sunday, The Daily Telegraph, The Independent and Conde Nast Traveller Magazine.
I support several charities and am a Patron of Motor Neurone Disease Association after my father died from the disease in January 2015. I am also Patron of Ellenor Hospice, and an Ambassador for Cancer Research UK Kids and Teens. I have a rescue dog called Bailey and am a supporter of the Dogs Trust.
My husband Mark & I welcomed a new addition to the family in February 2015, our baby Ella Rose.
