Other presenting credits include Bootsale Challenge, Loose Women, This Morning, Wish You Were Here, The Alan Titchmarsh Show, Turf Wars and A Buyer's Guide To Spain.
Julie's career on the theatrical stage began in earnest when she joined the RSC for five years, during which time she played numerous roles, most memorably Tilda (Matilda) Price in Nicholas Nickleby. She was also in the production of Inadmissible Evidence at The Royal Court, and has also performed at The Old Vic, The Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester, and numerous West End theatres.
Julie is also a popular voice-over artist and has voiced several hundred television and radio commercials, becoming known as the Queen Of The Ad Voice Overs!
