Emma is one of the country's hardest-working TV presenters; she fronts Big Brother, Celebrity Big Brother, The Voice, The Voice Kids, and a regular Sunday morning Heart FM radio show with Stephen Mulhern.

She is also a mother to three young children with husband Matt Willis – Isabelle, eight, five-year-old Ace and Trixie Grace, who turned one in May. Emma recently opened up about her eldest daughter, as she shared her concerns about the effect social media is having on young people. "Perfection doesn't exist," she told Stylist. "My daughter has an iPad. I was flicking through the pictures and saw she'd been taking selfies. I asked her, 'Why do you have to pose with your lips like that? Your lips are huge, you don't need to push them out more.' But it's the world they live in. The only thing I can do is try to educate her in the most level-headed way possible."
