Angela Scanlon is one of TV’s brightest rising stars. Her boundless energy and clever curiosity combined with genuine warmth and quick thinking make her a brilliant live and studio presenter. Disarmingly funny she is equally at home talking perfume with Paloma Faith as she is interviewing multiple men in a hot-tub at a nudist camp.
Having worked as a journalist she side stepped, accidentally on purpose into television. Her first major documentary, OI GINGER, aired in 2014 on RTE to critical acclaim (even trending worldwide on twitter). The success of the show led to a follow up series, Angela Scanlon:FULL FRONTAL in 2015 where she tackled taboo subjects like extreme makeovers, fitness and Tinder.
Her follow up series Angela Scanlon’s CLOSE ENCOUNTERS saw her dive into the world of WWE with world champion Sheamus, heading to NYC to chat books and babies with Dawn O’Porter, she even took on Katie Hopkins!
In 2015 Angela landed a role as digital host of THE VOICE UK (BBC). Shortly after, she co-hosted BBC’s live coverage of T IN THE PARK and most recently fronted BBC Three’s Red Carpet BAFTA Show interviewing nominees including Michael Fassbender, Eddie Redmayne, Idris Elba and Kate Winslet.
She currently co-hosts GETAWAYS (RTE / BBC NI) having just wrapped up her second season on the show with record ratings.
In 2016 Angela was announced as co-host of the hotly anticipated cult BBC show ROBOT WARS alongside Dara O’Briain. Angela will be getting up close and personal with the girls, the boys and bots.
Angela is also a regular film presenter on BBC 1’s The One Show which has seen her tackling subjects from autism to art as well as a returning strand “15 Minutes of Fame”.
