Jasmine is best known for being the face of Channel 4’s
award-winning show A Place in the Sun – Home or Away, for which she has
filmed over 250 episodes. It has taken her all over the world searching for the
best properties for her house- hunters. Since she joined the show in 2004

New Zealand and South Africa.
In 2011, Jasmine filmed a very personal documentary for BBC1
called My Hoarder Mum and Me, which followed her family's attempts to
overcome her mother's compulsive hoarding. A follow up documentary, ‘Britain’s
Biggest Hoarders’ aired on BBC1 the following year and the third instalment
in spring 2013.
‘The Zoo Next Door’, again for BBC 1, saw Jasmine meet people who had taken pet
ownership to extremes and she has appeared as a regular contributor for The
One Show for the past four years.
In ‘Collectaholics’, a hit series for BBC2, Jasmine
explored the weird and wonderful world of some of Britain’s greatest
collections. ‘The Truth About Your Teeth’ (BBC1) explored how the
latest science and technology can change the way we look after our teeth.
Before her career in television Jasmine worked in the Health Club
Industry. She is a qualified fitness instructor and lived in the Algarve
working as a marketing manager for a luxury health resort. Here she began
writing professionally and hosted her own twice-weekly live magazine show on

Jasmine supports a number of charities; she became a celebrity
waiter in aid of Nelson Mandela’s Children’s fund and traded on the stock

seven children, she loves nothing more than catching up with her family.
