Jane is back on TV

After the tragic death of her partner Eddie Rothe in 2021, the BAFTA-winning presenter announced she was stepping back from the limelight for a while to deal with her grief.

But in the past year, Jane has been busy making moves on and off our screens.

Her miniseries – Jane McDonald: Lost in Japan – premiered in 2023. She also made a special guest appearance on RuPaul’s Drag Race UK earlier this year and was announced as Phillip Schofield‘s replacement as the host of the 2023 British Soap Awards.

Now she’s turning her talents to radio. We’ll be tuning in, Jane!
