Co-Presenter on the hugely successful TV reality show 'Great British Bake Off'

Sandi Toksvig has been wowing audiences with her wit and verbal dexterity since her student days, when she appeared in the Cambridge Footlights reviews.

As host of Radio 4's perennially popular, The News Quiz, Sandi is renowned as a witty and astute comedian and after dinner speaker but she may be less well known as a prolific writer.

Sandi has written a number of children's books, starting with Tales From The Norse's Mouth. As well as her many fiction books for adults, she has also been successful with non-fiction, including Island Race, an account of her voyage around the coast of Great Britain with John McCarthy. Back on dry land, she toured as part of another double act; with Bonnie Langford in their two-woman show, Short and Curly.

Dividing her time between travelling, writing and performing, Sandi presents Radio 4's Excess Baggage as well as The News Quiz and is a regular panellist on I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue and Call My Bluff.

Her many television credits include, Mock the Week, Whose Line Is It Anyway, Points of View, Behind the Headlines and she appeared in the first ever episode of Have I Got News For You.

An ardent traveller and presenter of Radio 4's Excess Baggage, Sandi shares some of her worldwide adventures with her audiences and gives the odd wry observation on life, love, families, fashion, politics, people... and who knows what else? A truly unique insight into one of the country's best loved performers.

Sandi was Channel 4 Political Humourist of the Year and the Broadcast Press Guild named her Radio Broadcaster of the Year.

Sandi is only currently available for events in London.
