A well-loved British TV presenter, writer and speaker, Konnie Huq is best known for being a familiar face on the legendary children's TV programme, Blue Peter, a role in which she resided in for over 10 years.
First introduced to the presenting world in 1997, Konnie became a beloved TV presenter for the BBC children's television programme Blue Peter. One of her most memorable early moments on Blue Peter was visiting Bangladesh, and speaking to members of her extended family whom she had not seen for many years. In the programme's 2004 "Summer Expedition" to India, Huq became an extra in the Bollywood film Musafir (2004), and practised dancing alongside its stars.
During her time at Blue Peter, Konnie also took part in an appeal that included an emotional visit to Angola hoping to reunite children with their families (from which both had been separated due to war). Furthermore, in 2008, during her last programme, she broke a Guinness World Record by managing to pin 17 Blue Peter Badges onto fellow presenter Andy Akinwolere's shirt in a minute.
Most recently, Konnie became a best-selling children's author, after releasing 'Cookie! And the Most Annoying Boy in the World'. Not only this, but she has also worked on a number of writing projects, including the creation of an episode for the anthology hit series, Black Mirror.
As the longest-serving female presenter of Blue Peter, Konnie is accustomed to providing talks and events that are perfect for children. Using her love for science and technology, Konnie is able to make education and learning fun for all. However, Konnie's talks are adaptable, being able to provide professional and engaging speeches for adults as well.
Furthermore, Konnie is also an ambassador for the Prince's Trust and the British Asian Trust, two key charities that embody her love for working with children, impoverished communities and empowerment of minorities.
