Leah started her career in the entertainment industry at the tender age of five when she appeared as a “baby Supreme” in a music video for Billy Ocean’s ‘Get Outta of My Dreams, Get Into My Car’. In the mid-1990s she became a member of the girl band ‘Kleshay’ with her cousins. Signed to Sony Music, they had two Top 40 hits, appeared on SM:TV and CD:UK with Ant and Dec, and toured with Lionel Richie. Leah began her presenter career on Children’s ITV (CiTV) before moving on to co-present ‘Studio Disney’ with Jackpot247’s very own Emma Lee and Liam Dolan. She has since presented many other TV shows and joined Jackpot247 in 2013. For her latest venture, The Red Carpet Academy, Leah is using her knowledge and skills to teach others to be TV presenters and public speakers.
