Beverley Turner

Beverley Turner built a reputation presenting "Taste" - a daily food and drink show for Sky One & Sky Three.

On her days off, Beverley filmed three one-hour documentary "Across the Line" for Sky One's prestigious Sport Matters series.

She also enjoyed co presenting with Eamonn Holmes their successful two-hour sport-showbiz radio show on BBC Radio Five Live on Saturday mornings.

 

Her interest in the culture of sport led her to write her first book, 'The Pits: the Real World of Formula One'. Reviews included: "Highly entertaining" - The Daily Telegraph; and "Incredibly well researched. The Pits Confirms Beverley Turner is not just a pretty face"- The Observer.

She now squeezes in bi-weekly features for The Independent and her interest in women-centred issues sees her writing for both The Observer and The Daily Mail.

Beverley works as a patron for the 75-year-old Chairty FPA which led to her delivering a speech on the topic of health education at The House of Lords!

She is one of the few women to be regularly asked back onto the BBC's comedy quiz "They Think It's All Over". She believes this is a happy consequence of being very difficult to offend.

Other guest appearances include Radio 4's "Woman's Hour", Anita Anand's 5 LIve debate show and ITV's "Loose Women". However as the wife of Olympic oarsman James Cracknell she particularly enjoyed being featured on "Family Fortunes"
