Extensive supporting artist experience - TV, film and documentaries. Always professional, efficient and reliable on set. Most recently, I was featured as the Countess Essex on the BBC Horrible Histories movie, "Bill" (2014).

I have appeared on TV for both the BBC and ITV, as well as game shows such as "Total Wipeout", "The Weakest Link", "100 Ways to Leave a Gameshow" and "The Whole 19 Yards".

I am BBC trained in presenting, using autocue and training in live TV interviews and presenting. I have taken acting classes since a young age and have a large amount of experience working in both theatre and the media.

I have performed in several major plays with the Riding Lights Theatre Company in York - enjoying main roles, smaller roles with dancing and company parts with others. I took a lead role at the Bedlam Theatre in Edinburgh, for a one person show and several lead roles. I have also been a committed member to the York Amateur Dramatics - where I have performed in Fiddler on the Roof, Bugsy Malone, Grease and Godspell. I performed at the Millienium Dome in London when I auditioned successfully for the York mystery plays, as well as taking on the principal dancer role in Edinburgh for "Guys and Dolls" and "Crazy for You".

I currently choreograph professionally for several theatre companies in York, as well as teaching dance to all ages. I was the principal choreographer and dance captain for Pinocchio (Summer 2014) and Seussical (Upcoming Summer 2015).

TV & Reality

I have extensive experience in TV work, starting out as a junior reporter for BBC's "Newsround" in 2000, and now going on to audition successfully for Total Wipeout, 101 Ways to Leave a Game Show, Big Brother: Celebrity Highjack (all Endemol), The Whole 9 Yards and The Weakest Link (both ITV).

I have been formally trained by the BBC, through being picked from 50,000 applicants to be one of their "expert women" presenters. I am trained in autocue, "The One Show' style discussion shows, and live presenting/interviewing.

I am bubbly, outgoing and opinionated - the perfect mix for a reality TV show! I am able to hold an argument very well, and this is shown through my constant debating success through school, university and work life.

I love meeting new people and like to socialise. I enjoy working in a team - this is paramount in reality TV shows and I am also used to being around a camera, through my acting, singing and dancing experience.

I am very competitive and LOVE being in front of the camera!

I spent 2008-2009 in the USA, working as a professional cheerleader and solo/troupe dancer in Miami, Florida.

I was the principal dancer in several professional theatre shows, including "Guys and Dolls" and "Crazy for You" with the Savoy and Footlights, as well as "Fiddler on the Roof", "Godspell" and "Grease".

I choreograph professionally for several theatre companies, and have taken the role of principal choreographer and dance team captain in Pinocchio (Summer 2014) and Seussical (upcoming Summer 2015). I have very high energy and am able to teach dance to all ages, from 3 to 90!

Dancer from the ages of 4-22 with the Isobel Dunn School of Dancing in York. Whilst in the company, I performed in 14 major dance shows at three major theatres, as well as dancing in 8 pantomimes and in the touring version of 'The Pickwick Papers', starring Harry Secombe around the UK. I am an accomplished dancer in many forms - I have passed all advanced level exams in Ballet, Tap and Jazz, and major exams in theatre craft, stage, national, RAD, and gymnastic dance - the latter I performed as a soloist for the Isobel Dunn Company. I represented the city of York at the Mabel Ryan Dance Awards, and represented Yorkshire for gymnastics since I was 6; this greatly enhances my dance skills and enables me to combine the two skills to perform excellent advanced routines.

Gymnast for 15 years, acrobat and trampolinist for the past 10 years.
