Angela Scanlon is an Irish television presenter and broadcaster for RTE and BBC.
Angela co-hosted the legendary BBC2 show Robot Wars alongside Dara Ó Briain and is a regular presenter on The One Show. Angela fronted BBC One documentary, World’s Oldest Family, and BBC Three’s, Trump’s Unlikely Superfans.
Angela’s first major documentary, OI GINGER, aired in 2014 on RTE to critical acclaim – the show trended worldwide on Twitter and showed off Angela’s playful presenting style and her ability to dig deep into a subject matter. The success of the show led to a follow-up series, Angela Scanlon: Full Frontal in 2015, where she tackled taboo subjects such as extreme makeovers, fitness and nudity.
A further series followed Angela Scanlon’s Close Encounters, which saw her dive into the world of WWE with world champion Sheamus, head to NYC to chat books and babies with Dawn O’Porter and take on Katie Hopkins in a very honest and candid interview. Shortly after, she co-hosted the BBC’s live coverage of ‘T in the Park’ and, most recently, BBC Three’s red carpet BAFTA show where she interviewed nominees including Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Cate Blanchett and Idris Elba. Angela previously co-hosted the travel series Getaways with Joe Lindsey for BBC Northern Ireland. Following that, she received the role as digital host of The Voice UK 2016.
Angela presented the first ever virtual reality property show for BBC2, Your Home Made Perfect, in 2019.
