The One Show’s generalist reporter Angellica Bell has fronted a wide variety of topics for the programme.

Fact title Fact data
What would be the ONE meal you could not live without?
To start – Spinach and Ricotta Ravioli (homemade pasta is the best). For main – Sea Bass on celeriac puree and for dessert, a mean Eton Mess. Yum!
What would be the ONE thing you could not live without?
I couldn’t live without my family. My husband and my children mean the world to me.
What would be the ONE thing you would take to a desert island?
Sun cream first and foremost! I think I’d bring a book, something I could read so I wouldn’t go stir crazy
What ONE surprising fact do you have that our audience should know about you?
I used to be able to crochet. My grandmother taught me when I was little

Angellica grew up in West London and went on to study Politics at university. It was there she had her first taste of broadcasting getting involved with radio and presented a daily student breakfast show. Her career at the BBC started in 2000 as a presenter for Children’s and during her 6 and a half years there, was BAFTA nominated twice for Best Presenter.

I’m an inquisitive, fun loving, goal driven girl, who always tries to do the best she can in whatever situation she finds herself in.”
Angellica Bell

Having served 14 years at the BBC, Angellica has fronted a number of BBC1 primetime shows including Departure Lounge, Holiday Hit Squad and The Great British Village Show. She is one of the longest serving reporters on The One Show, having been chosen to be part of the team from the outset. Her intelligent, warm and engaging presenting style has meant she has reported up and down the country on subjects ranging from The Puffin Quiz Book, the 50th Anniversary of Bond where she was put through her paces performing her own stunts, The Bristol Bus Boycott which overturned a ban on ethnic minorities working on Bristol’s buses and visited Denny, the Scottish town that is the home of the red pillar box.

As well as continuing her work on The One Show, Angellica is also filming a new BBC primetime show which will be on your screens later in 2014.

After graduating with a BSc in physics, and later a PhD in mechanical engineering, from Imperial College London, she worked for the Ministry of Defence on projects ranging from missile warning systems to landmine detectors, before returning to her first love: building instruments to explore the wonders of space.

The telescope is just mind boggling,

she says of the Gemini instruments, her voice abuzz with her trademark fervour.

I like to call it a cathedral to science because sometimes I go out to Guildford Cathedral and [it has] this big vaulted ceiling. It is large and echoey, and the telescope is just the same.

 Space scientist Dr Maggie Aderin Pocock

As a dyslexic child, Maggie found reading and writing in school difficult. Nonetheless, it was a book that changed her life. On its cover was an astronaut. As soon as Maggie saw that picture of a man floating without gravity in his amazing suit, she craved more information about space. Driven by a desire to understand how the universe worked, she studied science and went on to make new discoveries about space on her own. Maggie worked hard to overcome stereotypes by staying true to her goal. Despite not fitting the common image of a ‘serious, white male scientist’, she made it. Her message to others is simple:

Believe in yourself, and you can achieve so much.
