About

England-born award winner Cat Deeley broke into the world of male-dominated television hosts when she began hosting So You Think You Can Dance, one of America’s most popular and longest running dance reality shows.

Deeley was the first ever Brit to host on Regis & Kelly, was Jay Leno's first regular entertainment correspondent on The Tonight Show, and performed the same duty for Good Morning America.

She has appeared on some of the hottest primetime shows on both sides of the Atlantic, including Stars in Their Eyes, CD:UK Live (on which she appeared weekly for 6 years), SMTV: Live (which she hosted for 3 years), Comic Relief Does Fame Academy, the V Festival, The Brits, Record of the Year, Elton John Live from New York, The Latin Grammy Awards and a one-hour special with U2, When Cat Met U2, for ITV.

In addition to her television hosting endeavors, Cat is the face of Pantene in the UK. She hosted produced a two part special for BBC America titled Royally Mad as well as a web series called In The Dressing Room, which lives on Yahoo.

Deeley also joined Anderson Cooper and Piers Morgan as a special correspondent to cover the broadly viewed Royal Wedding for CNN Worldwide. Plus, she hosted the 2011 British Academy of Film and Television Arts' Brits To Watch event in Los Angeles, which was attended by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

She also lends her time to the Great Ormond Street Hospital, a children's hospital in London, and served as High Profile Ambassador for the UNICEF organization.
