We are truly lucky to know Christine Talbot. Whenever she walks into a room, the whole room lights up.
Her smile is infectious. Her heart is so warm, and she is one of the few people we know who is truly genuine to everyone around her both on and off the stage.
We’ve known Christine for a number of years now and having worked closely with her as our host for our annual gala, she’s nothing but brilliant and an absolute inspiration to us all.

Our major fundraising event is the annual Yorkshire Young Achievers Awards which is a dinner for 400 guests at which we present Awards to young people of outstanding achievement.
Christine is one of our two hosts for the evening, running the event, introducing the winners and acting as MC.
She does an outstanding job with energy, passion, charm and professionalism. She is an outstanding presenter and speaker.

Christine Talbot has been a committed and valued supporter of Cancer Research UK for many years. She has become the ‘face’ of Race for Life across Yorkshire, inspiring so many others to join her and take part, even when it involved getting covered in mud! Her professionalism, compassion, combined with true empathy, makes her the perfect advocate to share real people’s stories and champion cancer breakthroughs. She has helped CRUK in so many, many ways, hosting events, opening shops, taking part and personally raising a huge amount of money – I can’t ever remember her saying no to anything asked of her, a delight to work with. Thank you Christine for your support and your friendship.
Nicki Embleton, Cancer Research UK Regional Media Relations.
Christine has hosted our annual fundraiser, The Yorkshire Children of Courage Awards, for several years now, and has been outstanding at every one! In an event where the nominees stories are truly inspiring but often heart breaking, Christine has a fantastic skill of making the children feel at ease and comfortable in a room full of 700+ people. She has always been compassionate, professional and flawless in every event she has been a part of and I am really looking forward to working with Christine at future events.
Ewan Dowes – St. James’s Place Charitable Foundation Chairman for Yorkshire
Christine is the consummate professional and is always the first person I’d go to when hosting an event for Barbara Taylor Bradford in her beloved Yorkshire. A brilliant interviewer, insightful, sensitive and super sleek. She is also my go to person for media training given her many years of experience interviewing the great and the good.
Maria Boyle, Director, Maria Boyle Communication Ltd
We were honoured when Christine agreed to host our newly revamped GYS Catwalk which was headline sponsored by Kuoni and featured four shows a day before a live audience. A consummate professional, Christine was unphased by a Royal visit, national TV coverage and an adapted celebrity show and she was a huge hit with audiences and media alike. A dream to work with, Christine is warm, talented and engaging – without doubt, one of the best presenters in Yorkshire!
Jo Francisco – Great Yorkshire Show PR Manager
I was a Producer at ITV Calendar for nearly 10 years and during that time I worked with several presenters, including Christine. She was the ultimate professional and importantly a team player which meant she was much admired and liked by her colleagues.
After leaving ITV and becoming Head of Communications and Events at Welcome to Yorkshire I engaged Christine on many occasions to present a range of events.
I now freelance in PR and Events and continue to work with Christine.
Her combination of being a journalist, her experience of presenting live TV which rarely goes according to plan, and her warmth means she is always and understandably much in demand as a presenter.
Dee Marshall, former ITV producer and former Head of Communications at Welcome to Yorkshire
Christine has worked with our company over a number of years presenting Fashion Shows. Christine is a true professional, authentic, reliable, extremely passionate about her profession and a great team member. I have always received positive feedback from our audiences as they all enjoy the way Christine presents in such a natural and stylish way.
