Broadcaster & journalist Jennie Bond appears regularly on a wide range of television & radio programmes – from light entertainment to documentaries.
She’s known to young & old for her exploits on I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here when she was buried in a coffin full of rats & had to eat a variety of live insects.
Since then, Jennie has become one of the presenters of the popular BBC programme Cash In the Attic, has been a regular contributor to Channel 4’s Countdown & is the presenter for the BBC’s daytime coverage of the Chelsea Flower Show. Jennie also presented the highly successful BBC2 series Great British Menu.
Other recent projects include; Celebrities Under Pressure, Too Many Cooks, Stars in Fast Cars, The Big Call & Jennie’s own personal account of her time as a Royal
Correspondent in a three-part documentary series for Channel Five, Jennie Bond’s Royals.
As the BBC’s Royal Correspondent during 14 of the most turbulent years the monarchy has endured, Jennie was at the heart of events that made headlines around the world: from the fairytale marriages to the adultery, the divorces & the deaths.
Jennie reported on it all & now enjoys sharing her experiences & often hilarious adventures with audiences at home & abroad. Her “confessions” include her faux-pas when she tried to amuse the Queen, her long & intimate conversations with the Princess of Wales & what Prince Charles really thinks of her white stilettos!
She loves to make people laugh & to show them that she is quite different from how people imagined her when she stood outside the Palace. For many years, Jennie was also a regular news presenter on BBC Television & presented the main bulletins as well as Breakfast.
Jennie began her career in journalism after graduating from Warwick University in 1972. She worked on local papers as a reporter for five years before joining BBC Radio News. During the next few years she gained a thorough grounding in radio news, editing the main bulletins. She also worked as a Producer on current affairs shows, including the very popular Woman’s Hour & in light entertainment with Noel Edmonds.
Jennie returned to full-time reporting in 1986 with BBC Radio, covering major news stories, for example in Northern Ireland. She also began her career as a presenter, anchoring among other programmes, Today on Radio 4.
Jennie Bond has written a book Reporting Royalty that tells in detail of her years keeping tabs on Britain’s Royal Family. It was published in September 2001 by Headline. In the Jubilee Year, Carlton Books published her Elizabeth, 50 Glorious Years, a commemoration of the Queen’s reign.
Jennie also chairs conferences & seminars & is a highly skilled conference facilitator & after dinner speaker. She has a wealth of experience hosting events & award ceremonies both at home & abroad.
