Margherita is one of the best loved faces and voices on British radio and TV, a multitalented presenter able to cover everything from political and cultural issues to what’s hot in the music scene. In 2012 Margherita joined the Heart FM family after nearly two decades at Capital and can be heard on Sunday afternoons, 12-4pm. She continues her weekday Smooth Classics show on Classic FM (10pm-1am), as well as co-hosting the Classic FM Live concerts with John Suchet.
She is a regular contributor on Sky News’ Sunrise, The One Show and Sky Arts, and also fronted their coverage of ‘Rewind Festival 2014’.
Margherita is also heavily involved in the charities The Prince’s Trust and Help A London Child. She started her TV career by hosting such shows as ITV’s junior version of Gladiators, Train To Win, BBC2’s The Ozone and Heartland for Central Television (a mixture of celebrity interviews and music). Margherita then moved on to present the channel’s cult prime time show for young people, Channel 4’s T4 Sunday for three years (March 1999-January 2002), originally alongside her ‘on-screen husband’ Dermot, and then with Vernon Kay.
