After co-hosting BBC Breakfast Natasha grabbed the headlines with her win on the first series
of Strictly Come Dancing. She then moved to the main evening news bulletins before a high
profile transfer to head up the Channel 5 News team. She now fronts ITV News bulletins.
Natasha originally worked as a researcher for the Labour party leaders John Smith and Neil
Kinnock, before moving into television. Her first role was to co-present a youth chat show on
ITV alongside Sacha Baron Cohen before moving to host the news in the Meridian region. She
then co-presented London Today and London Tonight with Alastair Stewart.
Having since presented all of BBC One’s main news bulletins, as well as broadcasts for
Channel 5 and ITV, Natasha has also co-hosted Children in Need, The Proms and New Year
Live for the BBC and appeared on Have I Got News For You. She also hosted the LWT
