Zoe Ball

Zoe Ball is probably best known as the first female DJ to host her own breakfast show on Radio 1. Zoe has presented and narrated a range of prime time television shows, including Strictly Come Dancing - It Takes Two, Don't Tell the Bride, and hosts her Saturday morning show on BBC Radio 2. 

Zoë Ball needs very little introduction…having the likes of Zoe host awards or make a personal appearance at any event would certain have the effect of adding prestige and glamour to your occasion.

 

The daughter of children's TV presenter Johnny Ball, Zoë was educated at a convent school in Buckinghamshire. She began her television career as a runner at Granada Television and researcher on BSkyB.

 

After presenting the much lauded “Live & Kicking”, in 1999 she became the first woman to front the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show alone. Zoë continued her onscreen partnership with Jamie Theakston after ‘‘Live & Kicking’’ for four successful series of “The Priory” (Ginger Prods for Channel 4.)

 

Between 1996 and 1998 she was a regular presenter on Top of the Pops usually alternating with fellow presenters and DJs Jayne Middlemiss and Jo Whiley.

 

She co-hosted the 2002 BRIT Awards with Frank Skinner and returned to radio in mid-2002 when she joined London rock station XFM, where she presented the Weekday Drivetime show.

 

In 2005, after co-hosting the BBC reality show ‘‘Strictly Dance Fever’‘, Zoë tripped the light fantastic as a contestant on BBC1’s “Strictly Come Dancing” and embarked on a celebrity nationwide tour in 2008.She also replaced Claudia Winkleman as the presenter of Strictly Come Dancing - It Takes Two, and has guest presented the main show. 


On ITV1, Zoe co-hosted the wildlife series “Extinct” with Trevor MacDonald, presented the second series of “Soapstar Superstar” for the same channel and went onto present ITV1’s nationwide search for a ‘Sandy’ and ‘Danny’ in “Grease Is The Word”.


Zoë completed filming the 8 part series Britains Best Brain alongside Jamie Theakston (once again!) which was aired on Channel 5.


An avid film buff, Zoe interviews all the top stars for BAFTA's Red Carpet and presents SKY's exclusive coverage of the OSCARs. Zoe is currently recording Zoe Ball on Saturday & Sunday for ITV1, which airs at 8:30am every weekend. Accompanied by the show, she’s just launched her brand new Book Club in association with Specsavers. Zoe also continues to host her Saturday morning breakfast show on Radio 2.
