The former gymnast has written for The Times and performed stand-up for Comic Relief. As well as a stream of well crafted sporting gags, Gabby offers advice for parents: “What do you do when the kids give you a guilt trip? Make them feel guilty back!”
Gabby Logan is presenter of BBC’s Inside Sport, Final Score and live coverage of the FA Cup - as well as writing a regular column for The Times. It’s all a far cry from her schoolgirl success as a rhythmic gymnast, when she represented Wales in the Commonwealth Games.
Daughter of the Welsh footballer Terry Yorath, Gabby joined Sky Sports soon after graduating. She moved on to present ITV’s Premier League, Champions’ League and World Cup coverage - before becoming only the second woman to front Match of the Day. She has also hosted her own show on Radio 5 Live, bringing a light touch to a mix of sport and current affairs.
Gabby was less successful on Strictly Come Dancing, where she was controversially voted out before her husband, the Scottish rugby player Kenny Logan.
