Download Biography

Best known for her presenting role on the hugely successful Gadget Show for Channel 5, Pollyanna has travelled the world twice over looking at the latest technology and gadgets. As one of the most reputable experts in the industry, Pollyanna is called upon regularly for her advice and opinion on the latest technology. She has subsequently appeared as a guest on TalkSPORT, and ITV’s This Morning, and has written a tech column for How it Works magazine.

During her time on The Gadget Show, Pollyanna bungee jumped, sky dived, built and raced a drag car, and competed virtually in the 24 hour endurance race Brit car 24, where she and 2 other presenters took it in turns to race a gaming simulator for 24 hours straight! She also flew using a water powered jet pack for which she set a Guinness World Record for the longest distance travelled on a water powered Jet Pack, travelling 22.64 miles in just under 4 hours. Pollyanna loves to push herself to the limit abiding by the mantra: “life begins at the end of your comfort zone”.

It was this mantra that inspired her to take part in ITV’s prime time Saturday night diving show Splash! which saw her coached and mentored by Tom Daley and the GB diving team.

With over 4500 hours of live TV experience, Pollyanna is an incredibly experienced presenter who is able to cross over into various styles of presenting. A very popular corporate host, Pollyanna has presented and hosted for red carpet junkets and large scale corporate events such as The Abu Dhabi Formula 1 Chequered Flag Ball, the prestigious Children’s BAFTAs, Gadget Show Live at the NEC and the Autosport International Car Show alongside David Croft.

As well as presenting, Pollyanna’s passions include dance, golf, photography, motorsport, health, food, and travel. When she gets a spare moment, Pollyanna can be found travelling the world to watch her fiancé compete professionally on the European and PGA tour, and indulging her love for all things extreme which has even included jumping off the stratosphere hotel in Vegas and sky diving over the Palm in Dubai. She supports a number of good causes and recently became a public supporter and ambassador for the charity Help4Heroes.
