More Cat Deeley Bios & Profiles
Biography #2Cat Deeley, full name Catherine Elizabeth Deeley, is a British television presenter born in Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham, England on 23 October 1976.
After achieving nine A grade GCSEs and four A-levels at school, Deeley became a full time model with the agency Storm, who also have the likes of Kate Moss on their books. It was at this stage she shortened her first name to Cat, apparently because there were too many Catherines on the agency's roster.

A year later she became co-host with Ant and Dec on the Saturday morning children's show SM:TV, which she presented until 2002. She continues to present spin-off music show CD:UK.
Other programmes she has hosted include Fame Academy, The Brit Awards 2004 and Stars in Their Eyes, as well as a weekly show on London's Capital FM and becoming patron of Great Ormond Street Hospital.
