Anna has worked in Broadcasting for more than 20 years, starting her TV career in the heyday of the Big Breakfast – Britain’s biggest breakfast show. She was soon spotted for her wit and frank down-to-earth style, and beat some of the best-known names in TV to present the cult series Love Bites for ITV, a no-holds barred Saturday morning sex and relationships show for teens. The series was so successful it won awards in the UK and America, and Anna herself was nominated for an RTS award for best presenter.
Not content with just appearing in front of camera, she soon turned her attention to TV production – developing, writing and producing successful prime time television formats for the BBC, ITV and Channel 4, including No Waste Like Home; Turn Back Your Body Clock; Sally Morgan Star Psychic and Channel 4’s hit series You Are What You Eat with Dr. Gillian McKeith, which was subsequently sold to over 40 countries.
Now an established TV host, she regularly fronts prime time factual and entertainment shows including Channel 4’s award-winning series The Sex Education Show; food and lifestyle series My Big Fat Diet Show; undercover hit surveillance series Secret Eaters; the undercover documentary expose Revenge Porn; RTS award-winning consumer series, Supershoppers; plus Channel 4’s high profile dating series Naked Attraction.
She is the author of two best-selling books: Anna Richardson’s Body Blitz and Mind Over Fatter.
