The final Kaddy-cast as a full-time BBC’er

It’s been a wee while since I was sharing weather facts n’ photos with you all, but I’m now fully back online and have so much to tell you!  Firstly a big birdy may have told you that I have left the BBC and gone freelance.  Tis true!  My last broadcast was on 30th March and if you missed it is below.

It was an embarrassing montage of all my outfits, hairstyles and ‘kaddyisms’ over the years…cringe!  However, after 11 years at SE Today and several years presenting Inside Out, it was time I made the leap and discovered what else is out there for me.  I will still pop up on South East Today occasionally, but you will certainly see me popping up elsewhere too –  I can’t tell you how excited I am!

In the next few days I’ll fill you in on what the last fortnight has held for me – Charity fashion shows, a brand new Hyundai car (I still need to find a name for her…or him…I might need your help!) and a day at the fantastic Children’s Trust, Tadworth.  Oh, and a delicious lunch at the Royal Automobile Club in Pall Mall, where Chris Evans and Johnny Vaughn play ping pong…Does it get much more random than that?

Anyway, it’s raining outside and although I’m not presenting the weather today, I think I will just take a little peek at my charts…

Will be in touch again very soon!

    Good to see you pop back onto the web, it sounds like you have a very exciting future indeed particularly with your fantastic presenting style and Kaddyisms! If I were the powers that be on Daybreak, I’d be snapping you up for their relaunch though selfishly would prefer you to stay local. Enjoy an exciting future Kaddy, Eddiex

  3. Best of luck for the future Kaddy

    Hi Kaddy, it’s great to hear from you again. Sometimes a leap of faith is what is needed to make the difference between success and failure. I know from a personal perspective that you are one of the best presenters I have watched ( fantastic looks aside ).
    I hope to see you grace my tv screen much more in the future although my ambition is to meet you in person!
    I’m sure you are going to do really well!

    Good Luck with your future it appears to heading in the right direction !!

  10. Hi Kaddy just a quick thought on a name for the new car, I work in a Hyundai dealership and a few of us have taken to calling them “high n dry’s” – quite an apt name with your background

    Kaddy’s left South East Today,
    And we are all in total dismay.
    Weather reports won’t be the same,
    without her smile and petite frame.

    Good luck to you, in all your new shows,
    We’re sure you’ll do well as everone knows.
    Can’t wait to see you on the telly again,
    So Kaddy please tell us what day and when.

  15. Good luck with the new direction. Glad your back
    I’d suggest Puddleduck for the car!@€
