Cherry Kathleen Healey (born Cherry Kathleen Chadwyck-Healey, 5 December 1979) is a British television presenter, frequently featuring in self-titled lifestyle documentaries on the BBC.

Early life[edit]

Healey is descended from the Chadwyck-Healey baronets; her father Nicholas is a son of the 4th Baronet. She has three brothers. She attended Cheltenham Ladies' College until 1999.[1] She has a Degree in Drama Education / Drama for Social Change from Central School of Speech and Drama.


Best known for her work with light-hearted documentaries on BBC Three, including studies on drinking, childbirth, body issues, dating, and money,[2] Healey frequently relates documentaries to her own life both during the programmes and on her blog on the BBC website.[3] She presented a mini-series called Britain's Favourite Supermarket Foods on BBC One.

Since 2015, Healey has presented the E4 spin-off The Jump: On the Piste.

From 2013 until 2015, Healey appeared in TV commercials shown in the United States and Canada, for Cottonelle toilet paper, in which she approached random people and asked them to use Cottonelle and "go commando" - meaning without underwear - to demonstrate how effectively Cottonelle cleaned them.[4]

Healey has also written for several publications including Grazia, You Me Baby magazine, and Cellardoor online.

She has co-presented three series of Inside the Factory for BBC Two alongside Gregg Wallace. In 2016, Healey took part in Celebrity MasterChef on BBC One.

Personal life[edit]

In Summer 2010, Healey married her long term partner Roly Allen. The couple have a daughter, Coco, born 2009,[5][6] and a son, Edward (Bear), born 2013. Healey and Allen later separated and subsequently divorced.
