Kate Silverton

In twenty five years as a journalist for the BBC, Kate Silverton has become a much loved fixture of British television as a news broadcaster and journalist, currently presenting the One, Six and Ten o’clock national news bulletins as well as on BBC Radio 4. Away from the newsdesk, she has reported from the front line in Iraq as well as Afghanistan; on the HIV crisis in South Africa and Lesotho; covered the glamour of the red carpet in Hollywood; and presented a range of eclectic and acclaimed prime-time BBC One programmes including the flagship current affairs Panorama. In 2018, she battled her way through serious injury to win the hearts of the nation on Strictly Come Dancing. For the past decade Kate has worked closely with leading children’s mental health charities the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, The Maudsley Foundation Trust and Place2Be. It is with the charity Place2Be that she is training to become a children’s counsellor and, in due course, will go on to qualify as a full child and adult psychotherapist.
