- Early Life
Ghosh was born in Leeds, though the family moved to North East England soon afterwards.
Ghosh is married to Simon Torkington, a former BBC News editor, and is the mother of a daughter, Maya.
In 2006, a spoof film was made by Torkington's colleagues, as a tribute to him on the occasion of his leaving the BBC for a new life with his wife in Qatar; the video was peppered with references to Ghosh. The Daily Mail newspaper suggested the film was an abuse of BBC licence payers' money.
Ghosh is a patron of the charity Build Africa.
