After graduating with a BA Hons in Journalism, she started out on the features desk of County Sound Radio, in Surrey. From there she landed a job as, amongst other things, Newsdesk producer at Five News which is where she got her first on-screen gig as Weekend Weather Girl, a job she held for two years. As one of Five’s few familiar faces the channel was keen to utilise her, and Alex featured in much of their in-house output with presenting slots on the morning 'Breakfast Show' as a Music Reviewer, covering gigs, concerts and festivals. Her next challenge came when she joined BBC3’s Liquid News as a Reporter, which gave her ample opportunity to combine her journalistic skills with a natural ability to make people laugh. This, in turn, led to a stint as presenter of 'Koopid', a dating show on Sky, and fronting a travel programme for Teletext Holidays.
The last few years have been busy for Alex. She has been a presenter/reporter on The Bull**** Detectives made by Objective Productions for BBC 3; launched the entertainment show QC for Channel 4, hosted live shows Make Your Play and Glitterball for ITV1, and she co-presented the daytime quiz show Going for Gold, live on Five every weekday with John Suchet.
Alex is a keen traveller and has lived in Kenya, Ibiza, Israel and Australia. So it’s no surprise that right now she’s working for the Travel Channel and can be seen reporting from various foreign locations for them. She also has several other presenting jobs on the go, including interviewing the latest rock bands for NROCK!, covering the launch of new games for the Nintendo Channel and conducting celebrity interviews for new channel T5M. Always up for anything live! Alex hosted the main stage at this years flagship literary event The Hay Festival covered by Sky and Radio 4, introducing guests to audiences of over 2000 people.
Working as a Producer before turning Presenter, Alex has been keen to keep up her creative skills and has several projects she's hoping to get commissioned including a factual-entertainment series she is developing with NorthOne TV. And as if all that wasn’t enough, in her spare time Alex is a keen DIYer, gardener and property developer, with 3 houses on the go at the moment.
