Biography

Georgie is best known for presenting Channel 5’s The Gadget Show, where she spent six years testing and reporting on the latest consumer technology. Georgie is now part of Channel 5’s brand new show Shop Smart Save Money, where she heads up the sustainability and eco-tech content.

Alongside Georgie’s work on the Gadget Show and Shop Smart, Save Money, she reports for BBC Morning Live, Rip Off Britain and ITV Tonight. She has live TV experience, regularly standing in as the main presenter for Jeremy Vine on 5. Georgie is a go-to expert for consumer programming, featuring on ‘How to spend it well at Christmas’, where she selected some of the best gadgets on offer for gift ideas. She also comments on breaking technology stories for ITV News, BBC Radio 2 and Radio 5 live.

Away from reviewing the latest apps and devices, Georgie is interested in how technology is disrupting the way we work and socialise, and the impact AI will have on our society as we know it. Her keynote exploring future tech trends has taken her all over the world, being invited to speak at events including Web Summit, Mobile World Congress and Smart City Expo. Georgie’s writing credits extend to a range of publications including The Mirror, Tech City News, The Guardian, Marie Claire & The Metro.

Georgie is passionate about women working in technology and devotes time to encouraging more girls to be involved in STEM subjects. She works alongside Girls in ICT, the IET and Childnet, striving to make technology and the digital world as exciting, safe and inclusive as possible. She also spent 2021 developing her relationship with Service Now, an American based software company, hosting numerous webinars and live broadcasts to a global audience.

Georgie has hosted multiple podcasts, including “The Tech Disruption Series” that saw her interview various start-ups that are disrupting industries; “Sleep Life”, a podcast all about sleep, one of her favourite pastimes; and Lloyds Banking Group’s podcast “No Ordinary Tech”.  Not one to shy away from a challenge, Georgie has a world record for the longest time anyone has been in VR (26.5 hours, if you are wondering) has run the London Marathon and bungee jumped whilst wearing a VR headset (terrifying, if you are wondering).

In 2024, Georgie will be presenting news-style content for ITN Business, exploring the world of educational technology. The programme will delve into the dynamic world of EdTech, showcasing how digital tools and techniques are revolutionising learning in classrooms. Georgie brings a genuine interest and warmth to everything that she does. Bringing her journalistic background to her playful presenting style means audiences are quick to like her and really tune in to her explainers – Georgie gets to the bottom of this ever changing world both quickly and fearlessly.
