Speaking about her start in television and radio to The Guardian back in 2005, she said: "After graduating, with student debt up to my eyes, I hit it lucky by winning a Search for a Star competition run by the Birmingham-based radio station BRMB.

What are Margherita Taylor's interests? 

The TV personality has previously spoken about how much she loves to travel, as she told The Guardian: "I'm about to go to the Canaries for GMTV and to Trinidad for a Radio 2 documentary.
