David Jones (Sky Sports) has been a presenter that I have looked up to for a number of years. His relaxed, yet rousing intonation has influenced many of my pieces to camera and radio shows. I met him back in 2014 at Sky Studios whilst watching a broadcast of their Premier League coverage. A real professional on screen, never fazed, never troubled by the pressure of the job.
Ant and Dec (ITV) are undoubtedly my entertainment heroes. Watching their programmes growing up, I have been inspired by their affectionate, warm and self-effacing delivery, which comes across as incredibly effortless and trouble free on screen. Their authenticity, modesty and commitment to the job has encouraged me throughout my childhood to be involved in TV.
Stephen Fry (BBC) has been a model presenter of mine for a while. His documentary series Out There was very powerful and has inspired me to just be myself when creating content. His sincere and honest temperament has lead to very natural and intimate programmes on a variety of different topics. If I could be even half as successful as Stephen Fry, I would be very happy indeed.
