"From Battleaxe to National Treasure" Martyn Lewis
Christine Hamilton appears regularly on TV and radio, from entertainment to news and current affairs programmes. Her repertoire includes everything from ‘Have I Got News for You’, ‘Bo Selecta’ and ‘Harry Hill’ to ‘Any Questions’, ‘Loose Women’ and ‘Newsnight’. She presented a 10-part Granada series ‘Home’ and has deputised for Gloria Hunniford and Fern Britton on their flaghip shows ‘Open House’ and ‘This Morning’. She has written a weekly column for the ‘Western Daily Press’, a monthly column for gay magazine ‘Refresh’ and ad hoc for national newspapers, magazines and periodicals.
She has filled both Oxford and Cambridge Unions ("the best Presidential debate for years - you made it for everyone"), wowed the boys at Eton College ("you managed to make most of the audience cry with laughter") and enchanted countless other audiences with her wit, humour and fund of hilarious stories.
She is in demand to speak at luncheons, dinners and gatherings of all kinds, equally at home with either male, female or mixed audiences, enlivening many an occasion with her charm and humour. A practised, entertaining and witty speaker, she lifts the veil on the discreet yet not-so-discreet World of Westminster and enthuses hilariously about her "Great British Battleaxes".
