Emma Willis (née Griffiths) was born in Birmingham in 1976. She has an older sister and grew up in Sutton Coldfield.

The young Emma went to John Wilmott School. Her parents both worked in hospitals and she always imagined she’d do something similar.

Instead she became a model at 17 and did photoshoots for the likes of Chanel, Marie Claire and Vogue.

In 2002 Emma Willis made the switch to presenting when she hosted several shows on MTV UK.

She started dating Busted singer Matt Willis in 2005 and they married three years later. Emma revealed in 2014 that she was at the top of Matt’s ‘laminated list’ before they even got together.

Emma stood by Matt when he entered rehab, firstly for alcoholism in 2005 and then for a cannabis addiction in 2006.

After Matt won I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in 2006, he and Emma co-hosted the spin-off show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! NOW! from 2007 to 2008.

In 2009 Emma gave birth to the couple’s first child, a daughter called Isabelle. Son Ace was born in November 2011.

Becoming a mum didn’t stop Emma’s career from going to strength to strength. She briefly became a presenter on Live From Studio Five in 2010 before co-presenting Big Brother’s Little Brother.

When Big Brother was revived by Channel 5, Emma started hosting Big Brother’s Bit On The Side.

She was popular with viewers and took over from Brian Dowling as presenter of the main show in 2013. She also acted as a stand-in on This Morning and Loose Women.

2014 brought more success for Emma Willis. She landed a presenting role on season 3 of The Voice UK alongside former JLS star Marvin Humes and hosted two very memorable series of Celebrity Big Brother.
