London Hughes knows how to ruffle a few feathers! Don't miss Bad Bridesmaid on Thursday at 9p
Miss London hits the streets of London dressed as a pregnant lady in order to prank unsuspecting
London is an award winning comedy writer-performer and presenter. Since winning the prestigious Funny Women Awards, she’s gone on to pen and star in TV and radio and become one of the many loved faces of children’s television, culminating in the latest series of CITV’s weekend breakfast show, Scrambled! Recorded as live, Scrambled! is a mix of chat, games and comedy sketches with the presenters interlinking between shows in the CITV schedule.
London has most recently launched her own YouTube comedy series No Filter, written by and starring herself, featuring the UK’s hottest young comedy talent and based on London’s real life experiences in friendship and dating.
One of London’s favourite shows to work on was starring in comedy and reality hybrid Bad Bridesmaids for ITV2, whereby brides-to-be allowed undercover actresses to attend their hen night and create havoc to be in with the chance of winning a luxury honeymoon.
ITV comedy entertainment commissioning editor at the time Claire Zolkwer said of the series “Bad Bridesmaids showcases some of the best new comedy talent in the country and it is amazing to see the comedians act their parts over four solid days with hilarious results – but always with female friendship right at the heart.”
London has enjoyed further comic appearances on ITV2’s Tinchy Stryder prank show pilot All About the Bants, Comedy Central’s sitcom I Live With Models, Channel 4 sci-fi pilot Space Ark, BBC3 sketch show For The Win (of which she wrote a couple of sketches), BBC2 sitcom The Stephen K Amos Show and Endemol and Beyond’s all female sketch show Sketch My Life for YouTube.
London had her first feature film role in comedy It’s A Lot, written and directed by Femi Oyeniran (Kidulthood and Adulthood) released nationwide in 2013. London improvised a lot of the comedy material for her scenes and choreographed the numerous dance routines used throughout the film.
London made her BBC Radio4 debut by writing and starring in her own sitcom pilot named 28 Dates Later. Loosely based on her life, the sitcom was about two girls that work in a cinema with a love of romantic comedies, but can’t seem to make their own love lives match up to the ones in the movies. London has also featured in comedy entertainment show Life: An Idiots Guide and satirical sketch show Newsjack, again both for BBC Radio4.
London started her television career presenting the morning show for CBBC for almost 2 years, in that time she also presented live links on BBC1 and BBC2 and made regular appearances on Blue Peter and snagged a presenter role in popular children’s show, All over the Place alongside Ed Petrie as well as voicing characters for CBBC’s comedy, Big Babies.
