We profile TV presenter and Celebrity Gogglebox newcomer Anita Rani.

TV presenter Anita Rani is the latest addition to Channel 4's Celebrity Gogglebox, appearing with her father Balvinder.

The 42-year-old is Bradford born and bred - and showed interest in journalism from an early age, fronting her first radio show at the age of just 14.

Anita is now best known as host of the BBC's Countryfile, as well as a regular stand-in on The One Show.

In 2015 she braved the Strictly Come Dancing dancefloor, making it all the way to the semi-finals with professional partner Gleb Savchenko.

Her other presenting credits include This Morning, One Love Manchester and BBC Young Dancer.
