After a seven-year break, Kaye returned to the panel alongside Carol Vorderman, Andrea McLean, and Ruth Langsford.

Kaye Adams started her career in political journalism, interviewing politicians such as Margaret Thatcher. Whilst she didn’t stay in political news, she was a go-to presenter for hard-hitting news stories, reporting on the Lockerbie disaster in 1988.
Kaye spent the first 10-15 years working for Scottish channels such as Scotland Today, as well as hosting a discussion show Scottish Women which ran for six years under Kaye’s chair. Her presentation of this talk show won Kaye a number of industry awards and put her firmly on the map as a star talk show host.
Kaye then moved on to presenting shows for a number of channels, including ITV Weekend Live, Central Independent Television’s Central Weekend Live, and Kaye for BBC2, before taking the helm of much-loved shows like This Morning in the early 2000’s, and I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here in 2002.
As well as being a successful television presenter, Kaye has a long history of voiceover and narration work; in 2008 she narrated a six-part documentary called The Merchant Navy for STV, as well as doing the voiceover for a documentary titled The Lockerbie Bomber: Sent Home to Die in 2010.
As well as a successful career in television presenting, Kaye joined the BBC Radio Scotland to become the host of their daily phone-in programme, Call Kaye between 2010 and 2015. This was replaced by the launch of her own show The Kaye Adams Show, which runs five days a week, and won her Scottish Broadcaster of the Year.
Kaye is not just one of the most recognisable television and radio presenters in the UK, she is also an avid cook and released a cookery book with Loose Women comrade Nadia Sawalha in 2018 called Nadia & Kaye: Disaster Chef.
She is also an experienced host of live and virtual events including the SQA Star Awards.
