Anne has been co-presenter of East Midlands Today since 2001, after leaving the breakfast programme GMTV. Before that eight years at Central News East mean Anne has been a familiar face in the region for longer than she cares to remember.
During her television career she has covered everything from the AIDS pandemic in Botswana to New York Fashion Week in the Big Apple and has interviewed everyone from the Lord Chancellor to Cynthia Payne.
Now in Nottingham, she fronts Children In Need, has hosted the BBC East Midlands Sports Awards and helped the programme win a Royal Television Society Award with her coverage of the Madeleine McCann story.
Anne is also patron of Macmillan Cancer Support for Leicestershire and Rutland and has, with her own committee, raised thousands of pounds for the charity.
In her spare time she walks the dogs, has a passion for cooking, always intends to take up cycling and wonders why she seems to spend so many hours each week kneeling by a washing machine.
