Originally a Labour Party researcher, Natasha has presented BBC, ITV and Five bulletins. She plays an active role with Save the Children and has appeared on Have I Got News For You and The Proms. She is also the first winner of Strictly Come Dancing.


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 current affairs show Seven Days, putting health, transport and housing ministers on the spot.

Agent Recommendation

We were joined by four fantastic speakers to look ahead at International Women’s Day. With the theme of this year’s event being #InspireInclusion, we were lucky enough to hear from four women who have each blazed a trail in their respective fields: CEO of Channel 4, Alex Mahon; the former Australian Prime Minister and Chair of Kings’ Global Institute of Women’s Leadership, Julia Gillard; one of the leading voices in football, Eniola Aluko MBE; and broadcaster and journalist, Samira Ahmed.
