Our Host - Tiswas Legend “Sally James”

We are Thrilled to announce that Tiswas Legend “Sally James” will host Chilfest 2017
Sally was the first regular female presenter of Tiswas anchoring the show with Chris Tarrant.

Aside from being a magnet for water, pies, beans and other mucky delights inflicted on her by the other presenters, Sally`s roles on the show had her interviewing many famous musical acts, such as Elvis Costello, Sting, The Clash, MotorHead, The Pretender`s to name but a few.

The fame of Tiswas propelled Sally to the forefront of the nation`s consciousness. Her tight clothing gave Dads a reason to forego the usual lie–in on a Saturday morning.
Whilst many a prepubescent male had their first crush on the big – haired denim – clad hostess!
