Biography and Career
Mariella Frostrup was born on 12 November 1962 in Oslo and she is a Norwegian-born journalist and television presenter. She is well known on British TV and radio, mainly for arts programmes.
Her voice was once voted the sexiest female voice on TV, and research to find 'the perfect voice' has indicated that her voice is one of the best. Her voice is often used on TV commercials as well.
Frostrup moved with her family as a child to the Republic of Ireland, living in Kilmacanogue, a small village south of Dublin in County Wicklow. Her Norwegian father was a journalist on the Irish Times, and her Scottish-born mother an artist. In 1977, Mariel
la left Ireland and moved to London.
There, she worked as a public relations executive for Parlophone Records, between 1980 and 1990; married, and very quickly divorced, the musician cum film-director Richard Jobson - then leader of The Skids - in 1981; marshalled the PR for the Live Aid concert at Wembley in 1985; and, after leaving Parlophone, swiftly broke into television as a film critic, presenting Thames Television's Video View from 1990 and - after Thames lost the London ITV franchise, reprised the role straight afterwards on The Little Picture Show for Carlton Television.
Frostrup has interviewed many different celebrities, writers and other artists and has presented a variety of different TV programmes, including one on travel, and has appeared in other TV shows such as the series.
She made several guest appearances as herself in the series coupling including an episode where one of the characters fantasizes about her, then meets her in person. In 1996, Frostrup was approached by the UK television channel Live TV to host the late-night show Topless Arts, in what would have been a mixture of arts discussion and the channel's risque naked programming. She declined and the show was never made.
She is married to human-rights lawyer Jason McCue and has two children, Molly and Danny. She lives in Central London.
