Ayo Akinwolere

Former Blue Peter presenter Ayo Akinwolere is a BBC journalist, presenter, speaker, and multiple BAFTA nominee and RTS Award winner. He also has his own production company – Milk First Productions – which he founded in late 2020 and has since released the documentaries Yorkshire Cop: Police Racism and Me (2021), and Wolf on the High Street (2021).

Ayo spent five years presenting Blue Peter, from 2006-2011, and was always up for a challenge, no matter how dangerous. This included bungee jumping from a helicopter at 11,000 feet and completing the deepest open water swim at the time.

With such an established presence on our screens, Ayo has become a popular choice to host private and corporate events and conferences. With his extensive experience and endless enthusiasm, Ayo is a safe pair of hands for event organisers.
