Other than Naked Attraction, Anna has presented Supersize vs Superskinny, The Sex Education Show, Secret Eaters, Supershoppers and You Are What You Eat.
From Telford, Anna is the former partner of comedian and TV presenter, Sue Perkins. The couple split earlier this year after seven years together.
Speaking about the call to present the new series of Changing Rooms, she said: “I was absolutely thrilled. And the experience of filming in a big group with incredible people, as well as lovely contributors who have allowed us into their homes, has been extraordinary. We’re all in it together and that’s when making television is so exciting, and that’s why I love my job.”
A fan of the original show, Anna said it was the right time to bring back the interior design show: “I’m so thrilled Channel 4 has brought it back. Now is the right time because we’ve had almost 18 months of misery, there’s been little or no joy and nothing to look forward to. Changing Rooms is a burst of colour, positivity and laughter on our screens, with people creating something extraordinary, but, also, sometimes messing it up in the process.
“And the fact that we can stand back as a team and laugh about it is refreshing. I think – I hope – the audience will laugh along with us. The joy of Changing Rooms is that not only do you see a fabulous makeover, you also see the challenges, the mishaps and the solutions along the way. It’s fun and it’s inspiring.”
