Described by Glamour Magazine as “the voice of Vera Duckworth with the looks of Naomi Campbell”, TV presenter and social media influencer AJ Odudu was born and raised in Blackburn to Nigerian parents. As one of 8 siblings and an English and Politics University graduate, AJ is well accustomed to articulately making herself heard which lends well to her forceful and incredibly humorous presence on screen.
Currently hosting ITV2’s Hot Desk and 4Music Trending, AJ is an accomplished live television presenter and an engaging, relaxed interviewer having quizzed and laughed with the likes of Russell Brand, Meghan Trainor, Nick Jonas and Russell Crowe; all with the ease of having a northern brew in her kitchen.
AJ cut her live teeth fronting BBC Switch Live from the Hammersmith Apollo on BBC One and hosting the red carpet coverage at the MOBO Awards for MTV. She then went on to report live from the Isle of Wight Festival alongside Jo Whiley and Zoe Ball for Sky Arts and so, was well set up to front Channel 5’s Big Brother’s Bit on the Side with Rylan Clark and it’s sister show Big Brother’s Bit on the Psyche collaborating with Iain Lee.
A qualified fitness instructor and nutritionist, AJ has proven to be a highly popular presence on social media with her fitness and lifestyle blogs, in particular her YouTube channel where she exhibits a vast range of hilarious, informative and inspiring fashion and fitness videos which have amassed hundreds of thousands of views to date. Her broad following and individual style quickly caught the eye of major brands such as Adidas, New Balance, Nike and ASOS where she continues to enjoy engaging campaigns together. She has also hosted her own health events in collaboration with Juicy Couture Sport and Les Mills in association with Reebok.
An established and talented DJ, AJ has spun the decks for Ibiza Rocks 10th birthday in London, Century Members Club for London Men’s Collection and warmed up for world famous DJ, Oliver Heldens at Sushi Samba. She has most recently DJ’d in Miami night club SET and Velsoir LCM party at Lights of Soho for Ciroc.
