Sir David Frost welcomes new house detective

Catherine Gee joins Sir David Frost in the next series of BBC ONE's Through The Keyhole taking over as the show's house detective from Loyd Grossman.

Catherine has recently been seen on BBC TWO on Escape To The Country, a series that explored the realities of abandoning urban life and starting afresh in the country.

Through The Keyhole - which takes viewers on an intimate journey around the homes of celebrities - is a favourite with the BBC Daytime audience.

Catherine will be uncovering personal objects to give clues to the panel of judges who try to figure out the identity of the celebrity.

Sir David Frost will continue as the show's host.

He said: "We are all delighted to welcome Catherine. Loyd's a tough act to follow but if anyone can, Catherine can."

Catherine said: "I'm delighted to be participating in such a popular programme especially as I've been a fan of the show for years.

"I love 'snooping' around people's homes, so this is the ideal job for me!"

Catherine will been seen on air in the Autumn.

On leaving the series Loyd said: "After 19 years I am sad not to have been able to find time to film the new series.

"But I am happy to know I'm leaving it in a safe pair of hands and I look forward to seeing Catherine peering through the keyhole."

Catherine Gee has enjoyed varied jobs before starting her tv presenting career.

She joined Country Living Magazine as the Editor's Assistant, later moving into organising exhibitions and events and then becoming Head of Shows.

Catherine also developed and now runs the magazine's The Farmer Wants A Wife Campaign - a dating service for lonely farmers.

In 2002 Catherine presented Escape To The Country for BBC TWO. A second series of Escape To The Country will be filmed in the Autumn.

Catherine grew up in rural Yorkshire but now lives in London.

Through The Keyhole is a David Paradine Production for the BBC.

All the BBC's digital services are now available on Freeview, the new free-to-view digital terrestrial television service, as well as on satellite and cable.

Freeview offers the BBC's eight television channels - including BBC THREE - as well as six BBC radio networks.
