Julia George
Julia Botfield
Julia is one of our roving reporters

Julia George got married in August 2006 - hence the name change from Botfield. She is one of Breakfast's core team of reporters and has been working as a TV and radio presenter since the early 1990s.

She's covered the Oscars for Breakfast as our roving reporter for the past two years.

Viewers in the South East will also recognise her from her days at Newsroom South East and BBC London.

Early starts

You'll see her reporting live for Breakfast from all over the country.

Occasionally, we let her spend a morning in our warm dry studio as one of our presenters.

Julia read English at Cambridge and then spent a year studying broadcast journalism in deepest Cornwall.

She joined the Breakfast TV team in May 2002.

She lives in South London, but spends a lot of time travelling up and down the country for Breakfast. She likes a curry and pint of lager top - useful information if she's ever in your neck of the woods.
