About

Sophie Raworth is a journalist and broadcaster, who regularly presents the 1, 6 and 10 o'clock news on BBC1.

She has presented many other BBC programmes over the years from Watchdog and Crimewatch to Panorama documentaries. Sophie is one of the main presenters of the BBC's Chelsea Flower Show coverage and as the subject of BBC1's Who Do You Think You Are? she discovered a long line of distinguished horticultural ancestors.

Sophie has also played a big role in BBC special events including General Elections, the Royal Wedding and the Queen’s Jubilees, to Remembrance Sunday, the Battle of Britain and D-Day commemorations. She has worked on numerous current affairs documentaries and has stood in on a number of
occasions for Andrew Marr on his Sunday morning politics show. Sophie also had a big role to play during the London Olympics and is a keen distance runner herself - having completed no less than 10 marathons.

Sophie grew up in Twickenham, and, following her schooling, studied a degree in French and German. She then put her French to good use by spending a year teaching English in Toulouse, before returning to London to study a post-graduation course in broadcasting and journalism.

Sophie’s career as a reporter began in 1992, but her talents were soon recognised and, after a series of promotions and holding different presenting roles, Sophie was chosen to help launch the new national BBC ‘Breakfast’ early morning news programme in 2000.

Sophie Raworth lives in London with her husband and three children.
