Blue Peter Legend

Valerie Singleton OBE is probably most well remembered for her work as one of the leading TV presenters for the seminal BBC series Blue Peter. Since leaving the series in the early 70’s Valerie has continued to work in television, radio and print media on a variety of topics.

Joining Blue Peter as a TV presenter back in 1962 Valerie had already spent several years appearing on stage and working as a voice over artist and continuity announcer; upon finishing at Blue Peter Valerie continued to make guest appearances as a roving reporter on the series but also established herself as a TV presenter for a variety of other shows and covering a number of diverse topics including the current affairs show’s Nationwide and Tonight (not to mention the spin off Tonight in Town) and the financial series The Money Programme.

In her capacity as a TV presenter, Valerie Singleton OBE has been called upon to interview a variety of guests, from Hollywood stars to politicians and from captains of industry to high achieving children. Regardless of her post Valerie is the constant professional, she is always amiable and entertaining but is able to adjust her tone to suit any audience or guest.

Beyond her work as a TV presenter Valerie is a supporter and spokesperson for a number of charities and also acts as a presenter for BBC Radio 4’s PM programme and contributes to a number of print publications, newspapers and magazines. Valerie’s talents and achievements as a TV presenter are such that not only was she commemorated by the series This Is Your Life but was also presented with an OBE by Her Majesty the Queen.
