With a Lancashire charm, AJ Odudu is a high energy TV presenter with a string of impressive credits. She has gone from covering extra gossip on Big Brother and The Voice to fronting adventure shows and presenting the red carpet at the BAFTAs. As a contestant, she has made it to the final of Celebrity SAS and Strictly Come Dancing.


AJ Odudu is one of the UK’s most recognisable and charming TV presenters. She has covered back-stage extras on The Voice and Married at First Sight: Afters, fronted Don’t Rock The Boat and danced her way to the Strictly final.

She began her career on BBC’s 5:19 and has gone on to present for Channel 5’s Big Brother’s Bit on the Side, ITV's Lorraine, This Morning and BBC's The One Show. You can also often find her on the red carpet, presenting for the BRITS and BAFTA Awards. She is also a competitive contestant, making it to the final of Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins and winning Celebrity Come Dine With Me.

Her first major documentary for Channel 4, Manhunting With My Mum, saw AJ and her mum scour Nigeria in search of a husband. The show won critical acclaim, including several rave reviews that described it as a “joyful one-off” filled with “princes, players and professional Scrabble champions” UK viewers wouldn’t otherwise know about.

AJ is a prominent media voice in the Black Lives Matters debate - her words on the subject have been printed in Vogue and Grazia. Her fanbase has given her the profile to launch several successful brand campaigns for Adidas, Visit England, Bumble and L’Oreal.
