Your Host


Lucy Nicholls is incredibly sought after in the world of presenting since making the transition from theatre a few years ago. Having toured the world appearing in some of the most prestigious musicals, from West End to Broadway, Lucy learnt and honed her craft for entertaining a live audience on some of the world’s largest platforms. With a deep-rooted passion for entertaining and engaging audiences, Lucy has also developed her highly successful Events Company, The PS Events Group Ltd, who operate worldwide with an exceptional ability to transform an idea into reality.

With a natural comic timing and a personality oozing charisma, the transition from stage to television is one that came incredibly naturally. Not fazed by anything Lucy quickly became accustomed to witty off the cuff thinking during many live TV appearances, with a particular talent for working alongside guests, getting the best out of co-hosts, auto que and isn’t distracted at all by any shenanigans down a talkback!

Alongside live and pre-recorded presenting Lucy’s voice can be heard all over the place in many accents. From TV Jingles to BBC Language tapes, a natural Cheshire accent serves her well for versatility, warmth and clarity. Lucy can be seen as a regular TV presenter for a number of TV channels broadcasting weekly on Sky, Virgin and Freeview.

Lucy is thrilled to be back on home ground where incidentally the Mere Resort was where her sixth form leavers ball was held….oh how life is different now with her two fabulous little boys and her Kiwi husband in Stratford upon Avon, where god help her neighbours she still likes to prove that once upon a time, back in the day when pyjamas on by 7pm, with a cup of Horlicks wasn’t the highlight of her week, she did indeed perform to thousands of people and loved every single minute of it!
