After a string of jobs, including work­ing as a male model booker, Davina got her big TV break in 1992 with an MTV show.

By 1998 Davina was pre­sent­ing the suc­cess­ful re­al­ity dat­ing pro­gramme, Street­mate, on Chan­nel 4.

Be­fore The X Fac­tor and The Voice we had Pop­stars, which Davina hosted in 2001.

In 2000, Davina an­chored the new Chan­nel 4 re­al­ity show Big Brother. Her down-to-earth in­ter­view style made her syn­ony­mous with the show, and she hosted Big Brother and Celebrity Big Brother un­til 2010.

Fronting The Big­gest Loser tapped into her rise as a fit­ness queen. Davina’s best­selling ex­er­cise DVDS led to her writ­ing her own healthy cook­books.

Along­side former DJ Nicky Camp­bell, she co-hosts the BAFTA award-win­ning Long Lost Family, re­unit­ing rel­a­tives who had been sep­a­rated for many years. Davina drew on her own life to bring em­pa­thy to the show.

As some­one who is pre­pared to push her­self to her phys­i­cal lim­its, Davina seemed the nat­u­ral choice to front the Alpine-set re­al­ity show, The Jump, on Chan­nel 4.
