In Detail

Since her retirement from Athletics, Denise has undertaken an array of television work including commentating on high profile athletics events and fronting shows such as BBC's Secret Britain and Right on the Money. She has twice been runner-up in the BBC's Sports Personality of the Year awards and was also honoured with an OBE in the 2000 New Year Honours. Denise is considered one of the BBCs most credible commentators, which has seen her cover many key athletics events both at home and abroad. Throughout her career, she has used her platform to highlight projects that discuss and promote diversity. In 2016, Denise presented Winners for BBC Two, BBC World and News, which saw her uncover the incredible stories of six female athletes from around the world and the challenges they face simply because they are female.


A charismatic personality, Denise uses the lessons she learned in the highly competitive world of top class female athletics to inspire and motivate audiences to achieve their goals. As a winning heptathlete she also understands the importance of diversity and how this leads to overall success.
