Anita Rani

Anita Rani

Countryfile’s newest recruit was brought up in Bradford, Yorkshire. By the age of 14 Anita Rani already had her own show on local radio, and she went on to do a degree in broadcasting at Leeds University. Since graduating she has worked on a broad range of shows including Four Rooms, Sky Sports, Watchdog and The One Show, and travelled around the world for BBC documentaries including Russia on Four Wheels and Seven Wonders of the Commonwealth. In 2012 Anita won the BBC’s Great Sport Relief Bake Off, so we hope she will be keeping the Countryfile team well supplied with cakes.
