Birmingham, England native Cat Deeley is one of the foremost television presenters, both in the U.S. and the U.K. In 2005, Deeley broke into the world of male-dominated television hosts when she began hosting SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, for which she recently earned her third Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Host for a Reality-Competition Program. Last summer, Deeley won the 2012 Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Reality Show Host. She was nominated in the same category again this year, and she also was nominated for a Teen Choice 2013 Award for her role as host on the series.

 

Deeley was the first ever Brit to host “Live! with Regis and Kelly.” She was Jay Leno’s first regular entertainment correspondent on “The Tonight Show,” and she performed the same duty for “Good Morning America.” Deeley is a double BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) Award winner and has won many other awards for her work on some of the U.K.’s hottest primetime shows, including “Stars in Their Eyes,” “CD:UK Live” (on which she appeared weekly for six years), “SMTV: Live” (which she hosted for three years), “Comic Relief Does Fame Academy,” the “V Festival” (2004, 2005), “The Brits,” “Record of the Year,” “Elton John Live from New York,” “The Latin Grammy Awards” and a one-hour special with U2, “When Cat Met U2,” for ITV.

 

In addition to her television hosting endeavors, Deeley is the face of Pantene, both in the U.S. and the U.K. She produced and hosted a two-part special entitled “Royally Mad,” as well as a web series, “In The Dressing Room.” Deeley also joined Anderson Cooper and Piers Morgan as a special correspondent to cover the U.K.’s Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. Deeley hosted the 2011 BAFTA’s Brits To Watch event in Los Angeles, which was attended by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. She also was cast as a guest star on the cable comedy “The Exes.”

 

She also lends her time to London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital, as well as UNICEF, for which she was named High Profile Ambassador in 2008.

 

Deeley divides her time between London and Beverly Hills.
