Television presenter, best known for Children in Need
Gaby Roslin first presented Hippo on the Superchannel and then Motormouth on ITV from 1989 until 1992. At the end of that show she was approached by Planet 24 to present their new early-morning programme The Big Breakfast alongside Chris Evans. Their on-screen chemistry was popular with young viewers and Gaby became essential pre-school viewing around much of the country. Chris Evans left the show in 1994 and Gaby Roslin partnered with former Neighbours star Mark Little. In 1996 she called time on the early mornings.
Gaby Roslin presented Children in Need each year from 1994 to 2004. Other presenting BBC roles include Watchdog Healthcheck, Whatever You Want and A Question of TV. She was one of several presenters for the BBC's 2000 Today, a 28-hour long programme to see in the year 2000. She briefly returned to breakfast television as a roving reporter for Breakfast in 2002.
In 2003 Gaby switched allegiances to Five where she co-hosted The Terry and Gaby Show alongside Children in Need co-presenter Terry Wogan. The magazine format could not compete with the similar and long-established This Morning and the show ended in 2004. Also in 2004, she also teamed up with Terry Wogan to co-host the first edition of Eurovision - Making Your Mind Up, the revamped successor to A Song for Europe, the UK's long-running pre-selection show for the Eurovision Song Contest. However for the 2005 and 2006 editions, her place was taken by Natasha Kaplinsky.
In 2005 she appeared in a national tour in the stage version of When Harry Met Sally... and later in the year sang and danced in the London stage version of Chicago. In February 2006, she took part in the BBC celebrity duet show Just the Two of Us, where she partnered ABC front man Martin Fry. Unfortunately, they were the first couple to leave the competition.
Gaby is available for Awards Hosting.
