Recommended Posts

Beverley Turner is a British television and radio presenter, born 21st October, 1973 in Prestwich, Bury, Lancashire. She is the sister of swimming champion Adrian Turner, and the wife of Olympic rower James Cracknell.

She is probably best known for her presenting on UK TV and Radio. These are primarily sports shows, although she has diversified into lifestyle shows as her career progresses. She spent three years as one of the female presenters for UK ITV's Formula 1, the other being Louise Goodman, and she also presented Tour de France. She spent another three seasons as the presenter of the US National Basketball Association in the UK, but also included entertainment presentation for Granada’s This Morning in 2002, and travel reporting for the Travel Channel in 2003. She currently co-presents, with Eamonn Holmes, a Saturday morning radio program on BBC Radio Five Live, and presents Taste, a daily food programme on Sky Three. Her other jobs include journalism, writing, and modelling.

She broke with Formula 1 racing coverage with the July 2004 publication of her book 'The Pits: The Real World of Formula 1' (ISBN 1-84354-237-4), in which she detailed her perception of sexism and mercenarism in the sport.

Her main charity interest is in sexual health and sexual politics, where she is a noted patron of the FPA (Family Planning Association).

She has a son with Cracknell, Croyde, born in 2005.

She has been a competitive swimmer and achieved a first class honours degree at Manchester University in English Literature/Language.

She appeared in the FHM sexiest women list at 88 in 2002 and 43 in 2001.
