Conference Facilitator and Awards Host
Much in demand, as a Conference Facilitator and Awards Host, Anita’s infectious enthusiasm and wide-ranging interests, mean she is equally at home, presenting to live audiences, filming live TV, and international documentaries, ensuring she gets the best out of her interviewees, be they a farmer in Yorkshire, or a Corporate CEO! Having wowed the audience of Strictly Come Dancing in 2015 with her hard work, and total fearlessness, Anita is now firmly back into her ‘day job’, presenting BBC One’s Countryfile, as well as BBC One’s The One Show, and has a number of other new projects for the BBC.
In stark contrast to the glitter and glamour of Strictly, as Anita delved into her family tree, for the BBC’s series of Who Do You Think You Are?, she travelled from Bradford to the Punjab, and was visibly moved by the discoveries she made about her grandparents, and the bigger story it told for many other families.
Recently seen co-presenting The World’s Busiest Railway Station for BBC Two, part of the BBC’s India season in, Anita has also presented a wide-range of factual programmes, for both the This World strand, and the Four Wheels series, both on BBC Two. She has also presented Escape to the Continent, as well as the RTS award-winning series, Four Rooms on Channel 4. In 2012, Anita turned her hand to baking and was crowned Comic Relief’s Great British Bake Off’s inaugural winner. 2011 also saw Anita present the live Royal Wedding ceremony for BBC One, broadcast to millions worldwide.
