/ 15 August 2016

Ruth joined 5 News in April 2006, becoming synonymous with the ‘and finally’ story. She’s also reported from the Oscars and the Cannes film festival.

What she loves most is not celebrity culture but talking to people on the street and unlike most journalists, she loves vox pops. She’s also made a series of special reports for 5 News on the cost of Christmas and what life is really like on benefits.

Before joining 5 News, she worked as an entertainment journalist for Liquid News on BBC3. She began her career as a news reporter in Manchester before becoming a video journalist for Channel One in Liverpool.
