Kaye Adams is host to BBC Radio Scotland's Call Kaye morning phone-in show

Kaye is one of the country's most experienced live TV and radio broadcasters and most recently has appeared as a regular reporter on BBC One's The One Show.

She has presented a number of documentary series for BBC Radio Scotland including her latest, “So Who’s Got the Children?” which explored the effect of divorce on children.

Best known for her seven years at the helm of ITV's award-winning, daytime chat show Loose Women, she is a regular presenter on Channel Five's The Wright Stuff and Radio Five Live. She is also a sought-after contributor on a range of discussion and panel shows. She’s braved both Question Time and Have I Got news For You and sat in the more cosy surroundings of Countdown's Dictionary Corner.

Kaye started her media career as a journalist trainee at Central Television in Birmingham after graduating from Edinburgh University with an MA hons in Politics and Economics. Her first coup was a one hour interview with Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher as part of an award-winning documentary about women in politics.

In time, Kaye branched out into discussion shows and it’s in that area that she found her niche. She presented seven series of Scottish Women for STV, her own show Kaye for BBC2, Esther for BBC2, Central Weekend for Central TV and from 2000 till 2007, she anchored Loose Women, where her journalistic training, incisiveness, and humour allowed her to steer the rest of the female panel in a popular and engaging mix of topical issues and entertainment.

More recently, Kaye emerged victorious in Celebrity Mastermind, but her culinary skills didn't quite reach the title of Celebrity Masterchef.
