Ellie studied sociology at Bath University. On leaving university, Ellie’s aspirations to work in television got off to a good start with a work placement on the BBC’s Kilroy programme; she later became Robert Kilroy-Silk’s PA. She moved on to join GMTV, as a runner initially but went on to become a trainee producer.
It was then back to the books to study for a post-graduate diploma in broadcast journalism at Birmingham University. Ellie subsequently got a position as a trainee journalist with Carlton. She later moved to HTV West as a journalist, followed by a return to GMTV as Scotland correspondent.
In October 2003, she joined BBC Look East as a presenter and reporter, covering the west of the region.
