She was named the PSA's Political Broadcaster of the Year in 2017.
Prior to joining the BBC, Emma was the Women's Editor for The Telegraph - where she founded and created Telegraph Women.
Emma currently writes a weekly column for The Sunday Times and, away from writing and broadcasting, is the patron of Smartworks - a charity helping economically disadvantaged women get back into work through interview training and outfit coordination to make the best first impression.
Her ‘taboo-busting’ book titled Period., which aims to remove the stigma and myths that surround the female body, was acquired by HQ earlier this year. It is set to be published on 5th September 2019.
