She is also the lead host for BT Sport where she originally anchored their live weekly magazine show ‘UFC: Beyond the Octagon’ from 2013-2016, rounding up all the latest action and interviewing guests from the world of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) to a live studio audience as well as hosting live Fight Nights in Europe. She has also anchored the news and reported at numerous sporting events from the NFL International series to athletics and winter Olympic Games for Sports HUB, BT Sports’ former news-based show. She is now BT Sport’s US correspondent for both UFC and boxing after her move to live in Los Angeles in 2016.
Further, Caroline has reported on UFC for Fox Sports and UFC Fight Pass covering big events in Japan and Europe. Never one to sit in the comfy chair in 2016 Caroline travelled to India to host the first ever World Cup of Kabaddi for Star Sports India, a sport she previously knew very little about but went onto study and love whilst broadcasting to millions around the World.
Caroline first entered the sport and entertainment media industry in 2010 when she became the presenting face of International Strongman. She presented the hugely popular Christmas show ‘The World’s Strongest Man’ in 2011 for Channel 5, attracting over 1 million viewers. Caroline also commentated on The CrossFit Games for Eurosport, an event touted as the World Championships of fitness. She commentated the first CrossFit Live Invitational between USA and Europe and The European CrossFit Games Championships.
Fitness & Health Coach & Expert
When not on screen Caroline is busy in the fitness and health industry for which she has over 15 years of experience. She is the author of ‘Better Body Workouts for Women’, a personalised approach to fitness, with publishers Human Kinetics and helps people to get fit at home with her high intensity award winning fitness DVD series ‘The Total Body Collection’; via her workouts on the FitOn app; and with her social media platforms. Caroline travels the globe as master trainer, ambassador and the face of Power Plate whole body vibration technology for Performance Health Systems. In 2015 she launched her ‘Gladiator Workout’ series which uses her bespoke athlete training system along with MMA fitness routines. This series was adopted in all Virgin Active gyms in Australia, select Fitness First clubs in Asia and now in the US. Her latest workouts can be found on Power Plate’s new On-Demand platform and app.
Caroline specializes as an innovative content creator and educator for fitness brands and products looking for a qualified voice to represent and showcase them across social media platforms, web and on television.
Caroline’s fitness and sports interest stems from her own athletic success. She was a long standing member of the Great Britain athletic team, competing in the European Cup 2014 and twice becoming the National heptathlon champion. The following winter she transferred her natural speed and power to ice and made her debut in the Great Britain Bobsleigh team, heading out to the World Bobsleigh Championships in Calgary as reserve/alternate athlete for GB1 team who secured the silver medal.
In 2008 Caroline took on the role of a Gladiator on Sky 1’s re-launch of the highly successful sports-entertainment show, ‘Gladiators’. She became ‘Ice’, a name based on her winter sports experience and a ‘look’ they were to create for her of white blonde hair to go with her blue eyes and sparkling costume! Her character was described as “cold, steely, frosty and beautiful”. Caroline performed as this ice maiden character in all 18 shows of the series proving herself queen of the rings and a force to be reckoned with in power ball.
