Early life[edit]

She was born Kate Edmondson in Portsmouth, Hampshire in 1983.[1]


In 2006, she was selected after a nationwide search[2] to present The Loaded Hour,[3] sponsored by Loaded magazine, on Freeview channel TMF and has since gone on to present TMF Live and TMF Kicks, Totally Boyband Live on sister channel MTV, and Q the Music on Q/The Hits!

She was a radio presenter on Pure FM, the student radio station at the University of Portsmouth, where she read Media Studies.[2] Both her parents worked at the university at the time.[2]

Arnell appeared in the popular CBBC show Hider in the House alongside JK and Joel in 2008, and presented the Teen 24 slot for the BBC News channel.

From 26 October to 7 November 2008, she was also the host for the official webisodes of the Sony Ericsson FanWalk. Eighteen webisodes were released following the fanwalkers for a course of nine days.[4] She also made a cameo appearance on The Legend of Dick and Dom in the episode where the crew have to find the mists of time alongside Chloe Bale, Richard McCourt, Dominic Wood and Steve Furst.

She has occasionally presented the BBC's coverage of the National Lottery Draws, mainly the midweek and Friday EuroMillions draws and in 2013, she co-presented the CBBC show Who Let the Dogs Out and About.

Kate's entry into the UK television industry has been spectacular. She cut her teeth in broadcast media working as a presenter for the University's student radio station Pure FM. But she got her big break last year when she beat thousands of hopefuls in a nationwide talent search to present The Loaded Hour (sponsored by Loaded magazine) on freeview channel TMF (The Music Factory). The TMF producers rated her highly and kept giving her jobs long after her Loaded Hour obligations were over. It wasn't long before MTV called with an offer.
