Vicki Butler-Henderson

Vicki is a founding-presenter for car show Fifth Gear (ITV4), as well as a motoring journalist and racing driver.

She is the most recent female presenter of BBC’s Top Gear, has been a Road Tester for Auto Express and What Car? Magazines and has written for many other publications such as The Sunday Times and Saturday Telegraph.

Away from motor racing Vicki has presented for The One Show and GMTV, been a tv critic for The Big Breakfast and fronted various items on This Morning. In 2008 she co-hosted the Absolute Radio Breakfast show.

A farmer’s daughter, Vicki has presented items for BBC’s Countryfile and loves all outdoor activities from clay pigeon shooting to driving tractors. She loves skiing, running and reading – but not at the same time. She has raced power boats and owns a Ducati 705cc motorbike.

In 2004, as part of the support races for the British Formula One Grand Prix weekend at Silversone, Vicki became the first woman to win a Maserati race in the history of the marque. She’s also a former racing instructor at Silverstone and has taught hundreds of petrol heads the fastest way round a circuit over the years.
