Emma Forbes started her TV career when there were just four TV channels, hosting three hours of the BBC’s live, award-winning flagship children’s show ‘Live and Kicking’. Emma’s media career since included the first ever teenage problem programme for ITV, ‘Speakeasy’, game shows, BBC radio, a host of lifestyle magazine shows and regular contributions to national and consumer press.
Emma’s career has always been a reflection of her life – when she became a mother herself to two children Lily (now aged 17 and Sam aged 14) she covered features such as cookery to parenting. Emma has also owned and run a children’s shop, published three cookery books, and run a successful lifestyle blog.
Emma has always been recognised for her natural flair for presenting, the Emma one sees on screen, is the ‘authentic’ Emma you meet in person.
Emma is the face of SheerCover and a regular contributor to charities such as Alice Escapes, the Macmillan Trust and the Concours of Elegance.
