Emma Forbes TV career has spanned everything from hosting of the BBC’s live, award-winning flagship children’s show ‘Live & Kicking’ to hosting the first ever teenage problem programme for ITV ‘Speakeasy’. She has also hosted a variety of game shows, BBC radio, lifestyle magazine shows and been a regular contributor 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 18 and Sam 16) 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.
The Emma one sees on the screen is the ‘authentic’ Emma you meet in person. She is also the face of ‘Sheer Cover’ makeup and patron of a charity dear to her heart ‘Alices Escapes’.
She is now trained and working as a coach for kids aged 11 – 18 doing workshops on speaking with ‘authenticity’ .
