Trade Mark (1)

Authoritative but melodious voice

Trivia (5)

Well known voice as a newsreader on BBC Radio 4. Much imitated on the radio version of Dead Ringers (2002).
Reads the news clips and cuttings on Radio 4's "The News Quiz" where she is well known for trying so hard not to collapse in fits of the giggles at some of the absurd stories she has to read.
In January 2002, she was voted the "Most Attractive Female Voice on National Radio" in a poll conducted by the BBC's Radio Times magazine.
She is famous for the rare occasions on which her normally calm and authoritative voice is overcome by a fit of the giggles while reading the news on the BBC Radio 4 "Today" programme. On 24 March 1997 this happened while she was reading a story about sperm whales, following a report which mentioned the name Jack Tuat (pronounced "twat"). More recently, on 28 March 2008, when a very early recording from the 1860s, which one of the other presenters had just described as sounding like "bees trapped in a bottle", was played during a news story, she collapsed in giggles while reading the next item - the obituary of Hollywood screenwriter Abby Mann.
She was made redundant in 2013 from her job as BBC Radio 4 continuity announcer and news reader, but she returned to radio in September that year when she took over from James Alexander Gordon as reader of the football scores on BBC Radio 5 Live.
