For the Lorraine show, Martel has worn many hats spanning more than a decade – from interviewing celebrities on the red carpet, to visiting the sets of some of our most-watched shows to interview cast members and reviewing the papers each week.
On The One Show, she presents short films mainly based in Scotland.
After stints on news, features, the city desk and investigations, Martel’s love of partying was spotted and she joined the Bizarre showbiz desk. There, she broke world-exclusive stories and interviewed stars including Tom Cruise, Kylie Minogue, Sir Sean Connery and Nicole Kidman – and never learnt the art of leaving a free bar early.
She is still called upon to interview world-famous celebrities for Lorraine – from Daniel Craig on the red carpet of the latest Bond premiere, to Harrison Ford upon his Star Wars return.
Martel and her husband have three sons.
She has passed the ginger gene to two of her boys. Surprisingly, the youngest looks like he’ll take a tan!
