Zoe Salmon

Zöe Salmon (born 7 January 1980, Bangor, County Down, Northern Ireland) is a television presenter best known for hosting the children's television show Blue Peter from 23 December 2004 - 25 June 2008. She is currently on Dancing on Ice
Salmon attended Kilmaine Primary School and Glenlola Collegiate School while growing up in Bangor, a town on the north coast of County Down which she says is her 'favourite place... It's a really pretty seaside town with a marina which is lovely in the summer.' She then attended Queen's University, Belfast, where she gained a degree in law at 2:1 level, before qualifying as a solicitor.

Salmon was crowned Miss Northern Ireland in 1999 (beating future Big Brother contestant Orlaith McAllister).

Her boyfriend is Hollyoaks star Gerard McCarthy, also from Northern Ireland.
Salmon was revealed as the 30th Blue Peter presenter on 25 October 2004. She first appeared on the show on 23 December 2004, in its 2004 Christmas special. She was originally meant to replace Liz Barker when the latter left on maternity leave; however, Barker had already returned by the time Salmon made her debut.

She presented the show with Konnie Huq, Simon Thomas, Matt Baker, Liz Barker, Gethin Jones and Andy Akinwolere. In 2008 after the departure of Konnie, the boys were both filming on both live shows so she was left to front the live shows alone.

Shortly after her debut, she famously said 'I'd Try Anything Once', which started a trend in her being asked to do dangerous or embarrassing things.

Salmon left the show in June 2008 at the start of the summertime break, at the same time as Gethin Jones.[1]
