Sue Robbie (b. Susan Robinson on 5 July 1949, London) grew up in the north-west of England and was educated at Keele University, where she read English and Psychology. Before working in television, she was a schoolteacher at Hazel Grove High School and an air hostess.
She was a continuity announcer for Granada Television in the late-1970s and early-1980s and frequently appeared with fellow Granada announcer Charles Foster. Both Robbie and Foster were narrators of Granada's highly acclaimed schools programmes for the ITV network.
She then presented other Granada shows for the ITV network, including Emergency, First Post, Connections (as the original host, and in which Foster announced the prizes, before being replaced by Richard Madeley as the show moved to a prime-time slot), Hold Tight! (where she replaced the Selecter vocalist Pauline Black) and TX (where she starred alongside a young Tony Slattery). She was also an occasional presenter and expert guest in the early years of ITV's This Morning show.
