Following her 2015 role as digital host of The Voice UK, in 2016 Angela was announced as co-host of the hotly anticipated legendary BBC2 show Robot Wars, which she will be presenting alongside Dara Ó Briain. Angela is a regular presenter on BBC One’s The One Show, which has seen her tackling all sorts of subjects, from autism to art. She also has a returning strand on the show ‘15 Minutes of Fame’, and you can listen to Angela on her regular Virgin Radio show, which she co-hosts with Russell Kane, on Saturday mornings.
Angela’s first major documentary, ‘OI GINGER’, aired in 2014 on RTE to critical acclaim – the show trended worldwide on Twitter and showed off Angela’s playful presenting style and her ability to dig deep into a subject matter. The success of the show led to a follow-up series, ‘Angela Scanlon: Full Frontal’ in 2015, where she tackled taboo subjects such as extreme makeovers, fitness and Tinder.
A further series followed, ‘Angela Scanlon’s Close Encounters’, which saw her dive into the world of WWE with world champion Sheamus, head to NYC to chat books and babies with Dawn O’Porter and take on Katie Hopkins in a very honest and candid interview.
Shortly after, she co-hosted the BBC’s live coverage of ‘T in the Park’ and, most recently, BBC Three’s Red Carpet BAFTA Show where she interviewed nominees including Michael Fassbender, Eddie Redmayne, Cate Blanchettand Idris Elba. Angela also previously co-hosted Getaways (RTE / BBC NI) – which had two series – the second with record ratings.
