Born and raised in Bradford. Early career in journalism working on regional newspapers, before joining the Times Educational Supplement, in London. This award-winning journalist spent more than 10 years on the Sunday Telegraph before moving into freelance writing, contributing regularly to national titles.

Following a successful career as a chef, restaurateur and teacher, Yorkshire born Elaine is a highly respected national food, drink and travel writer and contributes to many leading food titles. She loves pulling on walking boots, heading to the Dales or coast and a pub with decent Yorkshire ales and a plate of fish and chips involved somewhere.

Born, raised and educated in Leeds. Jeremy is a writer, director and occasional musician, best known as co-creator of The League of Gentlemen. His perfect Yorkshire day would be a run out to the Dales, taking in Settle, Clapham and Ingleborough. He’s looking forward to the Great Yorkshire Show and seeing some alpacas.

Ask anyone what they love about Yorkshire and they’re more than likely to not only mention the stunning countryside, breathtaking coastline and vibrant cities, but the people too...witty, warm and welcoming. So what a treat to get the latest from some of the county’s true stars, and those who are influenced and inspired by this magnificent part of the world. Global success as a member of one of the most successful girl bands of all time, Spice Girl and TV personality Mel B, talks about her return from LA to her much loved Yorkshire.

Business editor of the Yorkshire Post before setting up TheBusinessDesk. com, the UK’s first business news website. His perfect Yorkshire day starts with a workout on the Stray in Harrogate, off to Saltaire for a bit of culture and lunch followed by Filey for a dog walk, then dinner and a nice bottle of wine in Leeds.

Ten years of The Great British Bake Off has showcased a selection of Yorkshire star bakers, from the first to the latest series the county’s culinary creators have triumphed. We caught up with Nancy Birtwhistle, Nadiya Hussain, Kim-Joy and the most recent winner David Atherton. Yorkshire continues to be a chosen location for TV and film makers, with The Secret Garden being just one of the many productions set to be a cinematic sensation this year. Its young star, producer and director talk about their love of filming in this glorious and great county. Enjoy all things Yorkshire.
