From Edinburgh to LA – Scottish TV host Catherine McQueen now with Great British Presenters

27th Oct 2017

Catherine is a talented experienced Scottish TV host, DJ and live events presenter with worldwide experience.

Originally from Edinburgh, Scotland Catherine began modelling at the age of 16 after being chosen as a finalist for the Elite Model Look Competition.

On graduating with a degree in Law and Business she was offered a 2-month contract to model in Tokyo. She accepted thinking she would take one year out to model full time before settling back into the legal profession. However, 2 months in Tokyo led to 2 years in Asia followed by another couple of years in Milan, London and New York with Catherine being the face of world-class brands such as Christian Dior, Wonder Bra, FHM, Maxim, Tatler, GQ, Marie Claire, Elle and Harpers and Queen.

She managed to make the move from model to presenter after being chosen to work on a popular TV show called the Big Breakfast. The producers decided that they would use the same models every week and make them part of the show allowing them to “speak”.

Scottish TV host went on TV presenting jobs including MTV, ESPN, Sky Vegas, Fashion TV and Al Jazeera Sport whom she has also produced shows for.

Catherine also appeared in Die Another Day and roles in The Bill and Judge John Deed.

Starting out in Los Angeles, where she had originally gone to host a TV show, she quickly learned the ropes of DJing in the Hollywood clubs, beginning with playing an early set at Tattoo in Downtown LA. 

After a year of DJing on the Hollywood club scene, she began touring the US playing as far afield as Reno, Philadelphia, Vegas and Atlantic City.

This led to a DJing in Singapore, Dragon I in Hong Kong and the world famous Sunburn Festival in Goa.

Add to this, appearances at the Full Moon Party on the beach in Bintan, Indonesia, played Pattaya International Fashion week in Thailand and completed a full tour of India spinning at Poison and The Blue Frog in Mumbai, Tito’s in Goa, Blend in Chennai and Bottles and Chimney in Hyderabad.

Back in the UK, she’s had a residency a Jalouse, also spinning regularly at Luxx and Chinawhite.

More recently Catherine has been continuing her international DJ onslaught, playing clubs and venues worldwide from The Philippines (Manila and Cebu) for Levis, Slovenia at Planet Tus, Byblos in Croatia, The Malaysian Grand Prix after party in KL, The Singapore Grand Prix after party in Singapore, Club Aer (Four Seasons) Mumbai, Venom in Kolkatta, Malaysia for Carlsberg and the Maxim magazine Super Bowl event in Fort Lauderdale, Florida to name a few.
