Sarah-Jane Mee: behind-the-scenes video and exclusive #bagspill

Sarah-Jane Mee has taken part in an exclusive interview and photoshoot for HELLO! magazine, revealing how she rose above sexism to succeed in her career.

The former Sky Sports presenter – who made history this morning as Sky Breakfast News first female anchor – says she refused to ditch her high heels and blow dry just to fit into a ‘man’s world’.

“Working in sport can be extremely intimidating,” the 38-year-old said.

“For a while I had sleepless nights about it. Unfortunately there was and can still be a lot of sexism and patronising behaviour, especially from the old boys in sport.

“They would make sexist comments and say, ‘It’s just banter.’ But if I’m not laughing, it’s not funny – eventually they stopped.”

The new presenter of Sky News’ flagship show Sunrise looked stunning in a graphic, multi-coloured spaghetti strap dress, finishing off the look with a chic chignon and smokey eye make-up.

We went behind the scenes of the presenter’s shoot, speaking to her make-up artist Sarah Gaskell to get the lowdown on her look.
