Wendy Turner Webster is a TV presenter, author and award-winning animal welfare campaigner. The 56 year old compassionate broadcaster boasts a thirty year diverse and eclectic media career.
Her career in the media started in local radio, writing and fronting on-air features for film, travel and books. This led to her on screen career which began at Live TV, working as a news reporter for the sports and fashion desks and later hosting her own shows Videobox and Revelations with Nina.
Wendy’s passion for animal welfare made her an obvious choice to host Channel 4’s prime time show Absolutely Animals; a hard hitting investigative format which was filmed worldwide. This show was a forerunner to Pet Rescue which Wendy hosted for 7 years.
Wendy’s other TV successes include the BBC1 Saturday night series Your Kids Are In Charge, which she presented along with her sister, Anthea, the hit children’s show You Do Too for Nickelodeon, Crafty Beggars for TLC and Together TV, and Brits Rescue Romanian Dogs for Together TV and My5. She also took part in the major BBC documentary about domestic violence, Hitting Home, and produced and presented a documentary called Taking Lives for the domestic violence charity Refuge.
An avid writer, Wendy has written a series of Children’s books and has contributed regularly to a variety of publications including OK! Magazine and Woman’s Own. Today she is developing an ‘almost finished’ film script for a nail-bitingly good horror movie!
Sisters Wendy and Anthea are currently working on the second book in their new Underneath the Underground series – children’s stories which follow the adventures of the mice who live on the London Underground.
Wendy has been vegan for 30 years and is a patron of many deserving charities. She is married to actor Gary Webster and they live in west London with their two boys, Jack and Freddie, and their rescue dog, Newt.
