Naomi has been presenting children’s television non-stop for 22 years. Since 2010 she has been a regular face on CBBC where she has been lucky enough to host a wide variety of programmes, covering nature, adventure, factual entertainment, arts, music, and live entertainment. For CBBC, Naomi presents Marrying Mum & Dad; WILD!; All Over The Place; Wild & Weird; Live ‘n’ Deadly and Comic/Sport Relief Does Glee Club & regularly appears as a guest across the channel on other popular shows like Blue Peter, Sam & Mark’s Big Friday Wind Up and The Dog Ate My Homework. After co-presenting two series of the successful BBC2 live Saturday morning show Live ‘n’ Deadlywith Steve Backshall, she quickly found herself travelling the globe in 4 series of her own spin-off show Naomi’s Nightmares of Nature, for which she was twice nominated in the Best Presenter category at the prestigious Children’s Bafta Awards.

In 2016 Naomi was a new addition to the judging panel for BBC’s Countryfile’s photographic competition and together with John Craven and Bill Bailey had the tough but highly enjoyable job of selecting the 12 winning entries for the 2016 calendar. This led on to Naomi being asked to present a wide selection of films for the programme including a punt in Cambridge on a nocturnal bat safari, attending the World Conker Championships, attempting to beat Matt Baker in a game of tennis, swimming in the English channel and even paddle boarding with Cookie the Springer Spaniel.

Naomi has had to conquer plenty of her fears and face numerous extreme challenges during the filming of ‘Nightmares’, which have included skydiving in South Africa; hang-gliding in Brazil; sleeping up a tree in the jungles of Costa Rica; abseiling 100m in to a cave in Borneo on to one of the largest piles of bug-infested bat poo in the world; coming nose to nose underwater with a 4.8m crocodile in Australia and swimming with sharks without a cage… 7 times! The series was nominated for Best Children’s Programme at the 2015 Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival, won an award in the Best Children's category at the West of England RTS Awards and Naomi was a nominee for Best Presenter at the Children’s BAFTA Awards in 2014.

For CiTV, Naomi joined Stephen Mulhern to front the art show Finger Tips, and also hosted The Yuk Showand for 10 very happy years Naomi presented the live Channel 5 show Milkshake! She not only presented this pre-school block, she also produced the show, choreographed numerous dance numbers and composed some of the songs. Whilst at 5, Naomi produced two BAFTA nominated series, The Christmas Milkshake Show and A Milkshake Summer.

Bristol born Naomi loves music and dance. She began ballet lessons at the young age of 3, and one of her true passions is tap dancing. Her entertainment career first took off as a Redcoat at Butlins before her television break came when she presented the breakfast show Wakey! Wakey!for Carlton back in 1999.

Naomi was invited to Philadelphia, USA, to help train the presenting team for the breakfast programme The Sunny Side Up Show for PBS Kids Sprout. She also hosted PBS Kids' Make Way for Noddy series.

Naomi loves music, dancing and the arts. Naomi’s love of music has allowed her to be involved with the initiative BBC Ten Pieces that aims to open up the world of classical music to young people. She has hosted films, numerous concerts and live events for BBC Ten Pieces with all of the BBC orchestras across the country and at the Royal Albert Hall for the BBC Proms season.
