Biography

One of the former presenters of BBC Breakfast, Louise has previously anchored news bulletins on BBC 1 and the News Channel. She has also presented sports shows, played a cameo (as herself) in Spooks and managed to get ejected from Hell’s Kitchen – even though she wasn’t a contestant.

After starting out on the Latin American section of the BBC World Service, Louise graduated to helping out the team on Radio 4’s Today programme. She then reported for Radio Berkshire and went on to present numerous slots on Radio 5 Live. Louise hosts Her Spirit, a podcast with more than a quarter of a million downloads that discusses women's physical and mental health in relation to exercise.

Louise has fronted Channel Five News and their showbiz show, Exclusive. She has also co-presented with the likes of Jon Sopel and John Inverdale, shared the Sunday Life sofa with Colin Jackson, and competed in Celebrity MasterChef. She is also the author of Dare to Tri, the story of how an article on cycling for BBC Breakfast led to a passion for the sport, and then an obsession which culminated in her representing Britain at the World Triathlon Championships. Her next book, Adventures with Superwoman, explores some of her sporting inspirations.
