Broadcaster and journalist Jennie Bond appears regularly on a wide range of television and radio programmes – from light entertainment to documentaries.
She began her career in journalism working on local papers as a reporter for five years before joining BBC Radio News. During the next few years she gained a thorough grounding in radio news, editing the main bulletins. She also worked as a producer on current affairs shows, including the very popular Woman’s Hour, and in light entertainment, with Noel Edmonds.
As the BBC’s Royal Correspondent during 14 of the most turbulent years the monarchy has endured, Jennie was at the heart of events that made headlines around the world: from the fairytale marriages to the adultery, the divorces and the deaths.
Jennie reported on it all and now enjoys sharing her experiences and often hilarious adventures with audiences. Her “confessions” include her faux-pas when she tried to amuse the Queen, her long and intimate conversations with the Princess of Wales and what Prince Charles really thinks of her white stilettos! She loves to make people laugh and to show them that she is quite different from how people imagined her when she stood outside the Palace. For many years Jennie was also a regular news presenter on BBC Television and presented the main bulletins as well as Breakfast.
More recently, she’s known to young and old for her exploits in the jungle on ITV’s ‘I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here’ when she was buried in a coffin full of rats and had to eat a variety of live insects.
Since then, she has become a presenter on two of the BBC’s most popular shows: Cash in the Attic and Rip Off Britain. She has also presented the highly successful BBC2 series Great British Menu.
