Jacqui Hames to host Crimewatch spin-off
Friday 31 May 2013
Former Crimewatch presenter Jacqui Hames is back on television helping host a spin-off of the long-running show.
The ex-police officer will join Rav Wilding in the studio on daytime show Crimewatch Roadshow which starts on BBC One in June.
She said: "I'm delighted to be working on such an exciting and important live programme. Crimewatch Roadshow helps the police solve some really distressing crimes and I'm looking forward to keeping viewers updated on some of the cases we've highlighted."
Hames first appeared on Crimewatch in 1990 and stayed with the show for 16 years covering some of the country's most high profile crimes.
Crimewatch Roadshow, which goes out every weekday morning, features public appeals and live reports from police forces up and down the country.
