Layla Anna-Lee

In 2012 Layla landed the job of a lifetime and was handpicked by Danny Boyle to voice the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony live to an audience of nearly 1 billion. That same year Layla hosted the ‘Olympic Beach Volleyball Finals’ and the ‘Queen’s Diamond Jubilee’ in Trafalgar Square, both to an audience of over 20,000. She also featured in FHM’s ‘100 Sexiest Women in the World’ and made Time Out’s ‘Hot 100’ – a prestigious list of the most influential creatives in Britain.

Layla can also boast an illustrious television career having fronted pieces for ITV, Channel 4, Sky Sports, Eurosport and Premier League TV. She has been afforded many on-screen privileges, including carrying out Michael Owen’s retirement interview and being given unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to the England Rugby Team during the QBE Internationals. Layla can currently be found presenting on ITV for the popular Saturday morning children’s show ‘The Munch Box’, which now returns for a second series.

An accomplished writer, Layla attended the London School of Journalism and regularly writes for the Huffington Post.  Throughout her presenting career she has often assisted in writing her scripts and benefits from being a multilinguist; fluent in French, Spanish and Portuguese.

With her diverse skills, Layla was soon approached by ‘Kick TV’ – one of the most popular football channels on Youtube – to become a weekly presenter; establishing herself as a prominent figure in the ever increasing world of online programming. As a Kick TV correspondent, she travelled to Brazil to cover the protests at the 2013 Confederations Cup and then returned in 2014 with her own series to investigate life behind the Brazilian World Cup. This breakthrough in online content soon led to Layla being headhunted by Adidas to co-anchor their live show ‘The Dugout’ at the 2014 Brazilian World Cup, enabling her to interview the likes of David Beckham, Kaka & Patrick Vieira live. Layla has recently been asked back to front coverage for the 2014 Champions League. This has led to Layla interviewing many of the world’s top-ranking football players, including being entrusted with the very rare opportunity of carrying out an in-depth interview with Lionel Messi, which received widespread media coverage and was revered by the industry.
