Konnie Huq (Bengali: কনি হক, pronounced “Huck”; born 17 July 1975) is a British television presenter who is best known for being the longest-serving female presenter of Blue Peter, having presented it from 1st December 1997 until 23 January 2008.
Huq is best known for presenting the BBC children’s television show Blue Peter and became its first Asian presenter when she joined on 1 December 1997. (At the time, Huq was regarded as being its 25th presenter, but the subsequent acknowledgement in 1998 of Anita West as a former presenter, means Huq is now the programme’s 26th host.) She is currently the third longest-serving Blue Peter presenter of all time and on 1 October 2007 became its longest-serving female host, passing Valerie Singleton’s record. On the 22nd January 2008, Konnie presented her last live Blue Peter. [Wiki]
