Konnie Huq has managed to pack quite a bit into her nascent career. The London-born personality notched up appearances on Newsround and Milkshake, before becoming Blue Peter's first ever Asian presenter. In a case of events coming full circle, she wound up working on the popular show after being awarded a Blue Peter badge many years before when she appeared in a play with a youthful Jude Law.
