Kirsty is a long standing presenter for Sky Sports News and is a consummate professional sports broadcaster. Her aptitude for covering a diverse range of sporting events throughout the year including the Ryder Cup and Wimbledon are what make her a highly respected sporting reporter. Kirsty also has a lighter side and this showed when she recently co-hosted Soccer Aid with Dermot O'Leary for ITV1; the charity football match which pitted celebrities against legendary footballers.
Aside from her work with Sky Sports, Kirsty has co-presented Gladiators alongside Ian Wright for Sky One, The Games for Channel 4, following her triumph as a contestant in the previous series and the All StarCup for ITV1/ITV2, live from Celtic Manor in Wales. In addition, Kirsty has presented live feeds for Sports Relief.
Kirsty has successfully combined her love of sport and entertainment by featuring alongside Ant and Dec on Saturday Night Takeaway for primetime ITV1. Other presenting credits include presenting Lorraine for ITV1 on weekday mornings, BBC1's holiday series Departure Lounge, reporting for Richard and Judy in their book club series, co-hosting Simply The Best for ITV, co-hosting The Laureus World Sports Awards in Lisbon for Five and hosting her own series for Sky One including Kirsty's Home Video's and TV Meltdown.
Turning her hand to radio, Kirsty has hosted her own sports and entertainment show for BBC Radio Five Live on Saturday mornings and has presented a weekly Wednesday evening Golf series for the station. Both shows saw her interviewing various luminaries from the sporting world whilst discussing the pressing issues of the day.
When she is not working, Kirsty likes to keep fit. She is a keen athlete and excels in a number of sports including swimming, sprinting, golf and tennis. Owing to her genuine sporting prowess, Kirsty was named the face of women's sporting clothing brand USA Pro and she is also the ambassador of the Lawn Tennis Association's Cardio Tennis. Scottish by birth, Kirsty now lives in Surrey with her family. Her two sons Oscar and Jude keep her busy along with George the dog.
