Special guest presenter:

Emma Jesson is a familiar and popular face of ITV weather.Having started out as a colourful, quirky regular on national breakfast TV, she currently presents for multiple regions and could pop up with your ITV weather update anywhere in the country. She also presents a monthly online wealth investment programme.Frequently recognised for her sunny "Bye Bye" sign off, she originally trained to be a vet, but side-stepped into TV in her year off.She has carved out a strong corporate niche for herself working with clients such as Coca Cola, National Grid and Birmingham Law Society but it has to be said that as part of 'the day job' her off-the-wall antics...feeding sharks by hand, flying solo acrobatics...have given her bosses a few insurance headaches!
