Profile Bio Text
Jenni Falconer was born on February 12th 1976 in Glasgow where she lived until the age of seven, at which point her family relocated to the South of England. In 1994 she moved to Leeds to attend university, majoring in Spanish and Italian, with minors in Latin, Geography and Management Studies.
Jenni`s break into television occurred during her first term when work experience at a local radio station coincided with an appearance on Blind Date. Together, they led to a presenting opportunity with Les Clips, a BBC Scotland production, which was transmitted on her 19th birthday.
In March 1995 she became the co-presenter of BBC Scotland`s outdoor and leisure series, The Big Country and was involved with the show throughout its three-year duration. Television did not manage to take her away from student life and she commuted to and from lectures as required.
In 1997, whilst still at university, Jenni began presenting twice weekly strands on the regional magazine show Tonight. A contract with Yorkshire Television soon followed, including becoming a reporter on ITV`s live consumer show, We Can Work It Out and 3D. This meant making the difficult decision of how to juggle her education and career. Jenni made the decision to put her degree `on hold`, but fortunately, has never looked back!
1999 & 2000 saw Jenni co-present We Can Work It Out whilst also narrating the second series of the highly successful Pleasure Island for the ITV Network in 2000. In 2001, she joined the BBC1 flagship programme Holiday, and also reported for the BBC 2 watersports show Aqua.
Since joining GMTV in September 2000, Jenni has continued to anchor Entertainment Today, GMTV`s showbiz entertainment show, where she and Ben Shephard bring live music, movie and TV news from both sides of the Atlantic. This has given Jenni the opportunity to interview the likes of Ben Affleck, Nicole Kidman, Kim Catrall, Matt Damon, Pierce Brosnan, Clint Eastwood and Jennifer Lopez.
During 2001 / 2002, and whilst continuing to present on GMTV, Jenni also continued to film for Holiday (BBC1), as well as making an ITV1 special with Cilla Black, Sing With A Star (Oct 2002) and narrate Girls Behaving Badly for ITV1.
2003 proved to be just as busy - reporting GMTV`s coverage of "I`m A Celebrity – Get Me Out Of Here", co-hosting the ITV1 primetime specials Drop the Celebrity with Mark Durden-Smith and Entertainment Today, returned for its fourth series. In November 2003, she was announced as Scotland on Sunday`s "Most Eligible Female", and in December, she hosted the outside broadcasts for the live Pop Idol 2003 Final (ITV1).
2004 was another non-stop year. Whilst continuing with GMTV, Jenni travelled the world in five star luxury filming for the prime time holiday series How to Holiday (ITV1). She also presented a number of film specials for ITV 1 including, amongst others, Harry Potter, The Aviator & Finding Neverland plus hosted the live ITV2 coverage of The Television BAFTAs and British Soap Awards.
In January 2005, Jenni hosted the 3 hour live coverage of the Tsunami Concert (Five) with Dave Berry, followed by the Scottish Tsunami Concert with Robbie Coltrane. She continues to present movie specials for ITV1 (including Sin City, War of the Worlds, Hitchhikers Guide).
In September 05 she will co-present Britain`s Worst Celebrity Driver (FIVE) with Quentin Wilson – where some of Britain`s best known faces will be driving the length of Britain in an attempt to improve their driving skills.
