Annabel Gile’s first job in TV was on ITV’s Razzmatazz, when she took a child from the audience and turned them into a lookalike pop star. She was the fashion expert for Going Live!, interviewed on Night Network and was Derek Jameson’s sidekick on nightly chatshow Jameson Tonight.
She co-presented Posh Frocks and New Trousers (ITV) with Sarah Greene, Help Squad (ITV) with Michael Parkinson and Hit the Road (BBC) with Jonno Coleman and John Leslie, as well as Monkhouse’s Memory Masters (BBC1). Annabel wrote and presented Home Stately Home, as well as improvised three series of modern manners comedy strand The Done Thing, both for This Morning. She was one of four original presenters on Challenge TV, and again on topical comedy show It’s Later Than You Think (BBC1).
She featured regularly as a newspaper reviewer on UK Living and The Wright Stuff, and was also a guest panellist on many game shows, ranging from Shooting Stars to Have I Got News For You. Annabel is the only victim ever to have guessed a Gotcha immediately.
Annabel Giles played the part of Grania Pringle in Jilly Cooper’s Riders (ITV), filmed the inserts for The Krypton Factor (ITV) with Roy Barraclough, and was also in Firelight, a feature film starring Stephen Dillane - but she did play a woman in a coma, so no speaking required.
She was also Corinne in both series of Just Juliette, a comedy drama written by Jenny Eclair for BBC Radio 4.
More recently she was a contestant on ITV's hugely popular "I'm A Celebrity .. Get Me Out of Here", starred in short film "Lycra Dad", and has just finished filming "Our Shirley Valentine Summer" for ITV on the Greek Island of Naxos.
