After Dinner & Event Speaker (in association with SpeakOut)
Kaye Adams career has taken her from the Iron Lady to Loose Women with a host of interesting diversions in-between, including the dubious honour of co-presenting the last ever This Morning before Richard and Judy took their leave. In 2004, she was invited again by This Morning to be their daily live anchor from Australia, reporting on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.
2004 saw her anchor the 8th series of Loose Women, ITV's ever popular daytime show, hosting alongside regulars Sherri Hewson, Jayne McDonald and Carol McGiffin.
In many ways, Loose Women is a perfect fit for Kaye. It's live, topical, unpredictable and involves a considerable amount of 'make it up as you go along', all elements she thrives on. The format allows her to do what she does best pulling the strings and gives her sharp wit free rein. Her background though is a good deal more weighty.
Kaye started out as a graduate trainee at Central (Carlton) Television concentrating on political and news journalism. She chalked up her first major coup shortly after joining the company by securing an hour-long TV interview with Margaret Thatcher, the then Prime Minister. For the next few years, Kaye remained focused on hard news but a chance opportunity to host a discussion show for Scottish Television set her off on a different path.
The show, Scottish Women, ran for six years, won a number of Awards and still ranks as one of the most successful STV has ever produced. It also marked the start of Kaye's career as a talk show host.
Since then, she has presented ITV Weekend Live (ITV network), three series of Central Weekend Live with Nicky Campbell and John Stapleton, Kaye, a network show for BBC2, Esther, also BBC2 network and Pride and Prejudice for BBC1 Scotland.
As well as being a skilled ring-master, Kaye is recognised as a talented and perceptive one-to-one interviewer. She presented two series of It's Your Funeral for Channel Five conducting half-hour interviews with the likes of Germaine Greer, Brian Blessed and Sarah Mills. She has also guested as an interviewer for BBC1's Heaven and Earth Show. Kaye has also appeared on BBC 1's flagship political debate show Question Time and a recent guest appearance on Have I Got News For You.
Although Kaye enjoys the cut and thrust of live discussion and interview situations, she is equally comfortable in other TV formats. She hosted 104 episodes of The People Versus, produced by Celador for ITV and found it very enjoyable. She was a regular contributor to 4x4, BBC1's current affairs strand and has also managed to indulge her twin passions of design and motoring by presenting The Home Show and Wheelnuts for Scottish Television.
Recently, Kaye has been building up a portfolio of voice-over work and is currently recording commentaries for a twelve-part documentary series for BBC Scotland.
Off-screen, Kaye is very much demand on the corporate event and after dinner speaker circuit. She writes a weekly column for The Daily Record and is currently overseeing the production of a six part series which she pitched to Scottish Television as an original idea.
