“If I were to say anything to my 18-year-old self, it would be, ‘Loosen up. Chill out.’”

You may know her name from her presentation of BBC News at Six, Crimewatch or the Antiques Roadshow but there is more behind the scenes to Fiona Bruce. She has become an outspoken feminist and has worked with many charities like Women’s Aid and NSPCC.

The latter even inducted the newsreader into their Hall of Fame thanks to her hard work for the charity. In 2019 she made her debut as the new presenter of Question Time, drawing praise from critics for her expert handling of the show, after taking charge of the prestigious current affairs show when David Dimbleby retired.
