She studied Radio at the University of Salford where she was approached by the BBC to take part in their piloting scheme, which led to her joining 1Xtra.
Jonny began his career in local TV after gaining a degree in broadcast journalism before being thrust into the world of entertainment reporting. His quick-wit and humour has made him a firm favourite on the red carpet reporting for a number of broadcasters. channels.
A huge football fan, Jonny, who is from Preston, has also presented for the premier league and when not working can be found obsessively bingeing on films.
