Emma Forbes has been a presenter on some of the biggest TV shows, with "live" television being the format she has scored particular success in. She initially hit the big time through presenting the BBC1 Saturday morning show Going Live, subsequently hosting the phenomenally popular Live & Kicking (1993 to 1996), before going on to present the prime-time show Talking Telephone Numbers for ITV, as well as a revival of the classic panel show What's My Line? from 1994 to 1997.
Other TV credits include hosting Speakeasy (LWT) - a teenage problem show which ran between 1993-1996, Dream Makers for Living TV in 2002, a series of Good Stuff for LNN in 1995, and numerous appearances on Loose Women, Des & Mel, This Morning and The Alan Titchmarsh Show.
On Radio, Emma presented the Heart 106.2 breakfast show, alongside Jonathan Coleman, before leaving to present on Capital 95.8. She then co-hosted the Steve Wright show on BBC Radio 2 with Mark Radcliffe. Also on BBC Radio 2, Emma presented the Saturday show Going Out with comedian Alan Carr, and a Sunday morning breakfast show on Radio 2, replacing Pete Mitchell.
Apart from presenting work, Emma was the face of a long-running television advertising campaign for Head & Shoulders shampoo in the mid-to-late 1990s, and has also voiced Mummy Hippo in the children's animated series, Peppa Pig.
