Bruce launched her television career in 1989 when she started work as a researcher for BBC’s Panorama. After becoming assistant producer for the show, she swapped to reporting in 1992.
In 1999, she was named as secondary presenter for the BBC Six O’Clock News, a role she has recently returned to as a relief presenter in more recent years.
As well as news presenting, Bruce has firmly established herself as an entertainment and arts presenter, having fronted Antiques Roadshow as its lead presenter since 2008 as well as co-hosting BBC’s Fake or Fortune?, which observes the authenticity of works of art.
She has also presented BBC Four quiz programme Hive Minds.
Meanwhile, Dimbleby has hosted Question Time since 1994. The show, which is filmed in a different UK city every week, has been a magnet for controversy in more recent years, often encouraging fierce political debate on Twitter.
