Glasgow-born bombshell Jenni Falconer was introduced to the world of TV in 1994, when she appeared as a contestant on Blind Date. Her good looks, bubbly personality and easy manner in front of the camera were noted by BBC Scotland, which invited the then university student to do some presenting. It was in 2000 that she got her big break, when she was asked to host GMTV's new entertainment segment. She ended up interviewing some of Hollywood's biggest stars among them Tom Cruise and Will Smith in exotic locations. A self-confessed work-a-holic, she's fronted a wide range of programmes, including The National Lottery Big Draw and Sky One show Cirque De Celebrite. When she isn't travelling the world on assignment, Jenni, who shares her London base with former Cutting It boyfriend James Midgely and her dog Alfie, likes to keep fit by horse riding. Though she's spent most of her adult life in the south of England, the presenter who's proud of her Scottish heritage - still thinks of Glasgow as home.
