Anne Diamond (1)


Anne Diamond began her career as a journalist with BBC West before she moved back to ATV as a newsreader with their regional magazine news programme, where her friendship with Nick Owen began and continued when ATV changed their name to Central Television at the end of its franchise, and ended up talking to each other when the company went on industrial action in the east Midlands. By 1983 she co-presented BBC1's News After Noon with Richard Whitmore during that year's election campaign trail, and later that summer she ended up going back to be with Nick Owen who was already sports presenter with TV-am, the new but struggling ITV breakfast company. Anne and Nick were asked to help bring the viewing ratings back to a company recovering from no advertising revenues and ailing ratings who had already got used to BBC1's Breakfast Time. They soon had a wonderful on-screen partnership and by the time Pamela Stephenson appeared as a guest, unfortunately Nick Owen was the object of unwanted sexual behaviour in the early morning so Anne had the job of preventing trouble by covering Nick's essentials with one of the company's cushions!!!! Anne Diamond left TV-am in 1989 when TVS asked her to present TV Weekly, which ended when Meridian Broadcasting took over the franchise, during which time she was the unfortunate victim of cot death in 1991 and presented a harrowing documentary for Thames Television's This Week programme. Her Back to Sleep campaign was a huge success reducing the cot death rate from 2000 to 200 per year and is still today the UK's most successful health campaign ever. Anne had a heated discussion with Denis Healey during the 1987 election campaign on-air which was never fully resolved over some rather damaging newspaper claims. Anne teamed up with Nick again with the BBC in Birmingham to present a weekday magazine programme in the hope of beating off competition with ITV's This Morning but struggled to win in the ratings war, meaning that by 1995 the then controller of BBC1, Alan Yentob, axed the programme. Anne became a Celebrity Big Brother contestant in the 2001 series but was the second person evicted. She is now an occasional panellist on Channel 5's The Wright Stuff and stands in on BBC London. Anne's first autobiography, Good Next Door, was published in March 2005.
