How much she was paid at this stage in her career is not clear, but she supplemented her income by working as a receptionist and as a runner for “Auction World TV”.
A friend made a showreel of her, which prompted the BBC to hire her to co-present or present 3 of their CBBC shows. In 2004, she presented two children's shows for ITV. Her big break came in 2006 when she was chosen to co-present "Dancing on Ice" with Philip Schofield.
