Known for her outspoken, energetic and cheeky style, she is well able to keep the coaches in check, while also keeping nervous singers calm before their big moment on the stage. Equally when five members of the public lay themselves bare every week on Operation Transformation in an attempt to lose weight, Kathryn is not just there to reveal their weight loss targets. Whether running in the rain, knee deep in mud or wiping away tears, the nation sees her with them every step of the way. Kathryn's commitment and passion for the show and its leader’s success is undeniable. Since Kathryn joined the series in 2010 it has gone from strength to strength and won best reality series in 2014 at the Irish Film and Television Awards.Kathryn Thomas represented by Noel Kelly

Where did it all begin? Well, Kathryn, who hails from Carlow, literally jumped off our TV screens in 1999 bungee jumping, sky diving and swimming with great white sharks, fronting the hugely popular young persons sports show, Rapid, alongside GAA star Jason Sherlock.

Having introduced herself to the nation, as an adrenaline junkie, Irelands hit travel programme, No Frontiers came knocking, looking for a presenter to backpack to the far corners of the globe, Kathryn didn’t have to be asked twice!  She took off with her rucksack and within three years had become the lead presenter of the show.  Over 10 years Kathryn became the face of travel in Ireland, bringing people from the comfort of their sitting rooms to the furthest outposts, the highest mountains, the remotest beaches and the deepest darkest jungles. From Papa New Guinea to Panama, from Outer Mongolia to Outback Australia, from the Antarctic to Arkansas, Kathryn’s love of travel and exploration helped ‘No Frontiers’ become a staple for Irish audiences as she introduced viewers to another world.  As well as lead presenter, she became associate producer of the series. From there, she began presenting the hugely popular National Lottery game show, Winning Streak for three seasons on RTE One.

She has hosted numerous live large national events including St. Patricks Day Live, the opening ceremony of the Special Olympics World Summer Games, “Live from the Red Carpet at the IFTA’s,  Telethon and many more.  She was a regular on the comedy show, The Panel with Dara O Briain and became a man for a day wearing a prosthetic mask on hidden camera TV show, Anonymous.

Not happy just settling for our TV screens, she is also a regular on the radio airwaves. She regularly covered for John Murray and Ray D'Arcy on RTÉ Radio 1. Her “Music Passport” documentaries, which look at the importance of music in different cultures, have taken her all over Ireland and as far afield as Rwanda.  She has hosted four seasons of radio quiz “Before Your Time” which pits the wits of old age pensioners against a panel of students.

Kathryn writes a weekly column for The Irish Daily Star as well as monthly travel features for their supplement Chic Magazine.  Kathryn also does regular contributions for the Sunday Independent, Ireland’s largest newspaper. Following her success on No Frontiers, she wrote her first, best-selling book, Off the Beaten Track, based on her adventures.

Kathryn has amassed many awards throughout her career including TV Personality of the Year at the ‘Irish Film and Television Awards’ as well as best TV Presenter two years running at the ‘TV Now Awards’.  She won the ‘Travel Extra Travel Journalist of the Year’ and VIP Most Stylish Woman of the Year. We also know she’s hugely proud of clinching 3rd place as Irelands most desirable Valentine, though you’ll never get her to admit it!

In 2015, Kathryn embarked on her latest adventure and set up her own business, Pure Results Bootcamp.  Kathryn believes everyone at some stage in their life should accomplish something that pushes them outside their comfort zone. Pure Results was established so that others could feel the benefits of a health and fitness kickstart as she has done. Visit www.pureresultsbootcamp.com for more.
