Biography

Sue Perkins is an English comedian, broadcaster, actress and writer.

Best known as a radio broadcaster and TV presenter, Sue was the face of popular programmes such as Mel and Sue and The Great British Bake Off, as well as appearing on established BBC shows including Have I Got News for You, Mock the Week, QI, Celebrity Weakest Link, Question Time and Newsnight. On 26 February 2013, the first episode of Sue’s self-penned sitcom, Heading Out was broadcast.

Sue’s prowess as a writer led to her being named as a judge for the 2009 Man Booker Prize. Sue was ranked 10th in the Independent on Sunday’s 2013 Pink List and has been included in the list every year since 2008.
