Real Story presenter Fiona Bruce is also the face of BBC's Ten O'Clock News and BBC One's Crimewatch UK.

Fiona also chairs the revamp of the classic BBC panel game Call My Bluff, as part of a new line-up that includes former Today programme editor Rod Liddle.

In 2003, Fiona Bruce won best presenter of the year award from the Television and Radio Industry Club and also from the Michael Elliott Trust.

In the last year on Real Story, Fiona has had exclusive interviews with the family of murdered black teenager Anthony Walker; Colonel Tim Collins, who was falsely accused of war crimes in Iraq; policeman Neil Roper, who survived when his colleague was shot dead and the father of Caroline Dickinson, murdered on a school trip to France.

Prior to her role at the Ten, she presented the Six O'Clock News. In 2001, she was the first woman presenter to be part of the BBC's election team.

Fiona has presented The Antiques Show, Newsnight and the weekly current affairs programme Public Eye for BBC Two, and has reported on the BBC One flagship current affairs programme, Panorama.

She began her career at the BBC in 1989 as a researcher and then as an assistant producer on Panorama, covering a variety of ground-breaking stories which took her to locations throughout Europe, the Gulf, Kurdistan and the USA.

Fiona speaks fluent French and Italian and is a graduate of Oxford University.
