Vonda was first propelled to our screens as a member of the girl band MADASUN in 1999. They were successfully signed to record label V2 for 5 years during which time they had 3 top 20 hits in the UK coupled with even greater success overseas especially in Italy and Australia. Besides the usual circuits of Smash Hits, Top of the Pops, and SMTV.
After the band, Vonda presented 2 shows on Sky, The Guest List and Vonda and the Doc which was a type of embarrassing bodies show and her interest in health and wellbeing was born.
Motherhood persuaded Vonda to take a few years off to bring up her 2 young children and in the meantime successfully open an upmarket children’s fashion and gift store.
Recently Vonda has now returned to our screens with appearances in several films and TV commercials for health, fitness and beauty products.
In her free time, Vonda can be seen at the gym working out including Spinning and Pilates. As an ex-dancer, this has always been an integral part of her life. She comes from a very theatrical family with her mother a dancer for many years with Saddlers Wells and her sister, the actress Cindy Shelley, from The Young Ones, Bottom and Howards Way.
Currently, Vonda is studying to become a Pilates teacher as well as researching the benefits of nutrition and exercise and the role they play in our health from childhood to adulthood.
She is currently a guest presenter at QVC for Fashion and Sketchers. As an ex-girl band member, she also specialises in Music.
As a speaker is also good for lifestyle and women's issues, she suffered from anorexia and was a single mum with 2 children.
