Kate Quilton is a popular television personality famous for her work as the presenter for a number of Channel 4 television series. Having also worked as a reporter, she has made quite a name for herself appearing in more than 15 shows to date. She is best known for presenting Food Unwrapped since 2012.
Kate pursued a career in the entertainment industry while she was still a student. Despite being quite successful working as a TV media personality in England, many still don’t know much about Kate Quilton’s day-to-day life. Let’s discuss more on how actor James Lance‘s wife managed to become one of the country’s most sought-out presenters in this biography.
Her Father Has Already Passed Away
Katie Marie Quilton was born on November 30, 1983, to English parents Kevin Quilton and Ann Quilton in Nuneaton, Warwickshire. Kate Quilton’s father sadly passed away at the age of 67 on January 13, 2015. Kate expressed her extreme sadness after his death through her Instagram.
Kate Quilton’s dad was born on December 28, 1948, and was a kind and generous man, according to his family. He is survived by Kate and her siblings, Kerry Quilton, Marc Quilton, and Stacey Quilton.
Moreover, the presenter began her television career and started working for ITV and BBC while still a student. When she was at the University of Bristol majoring in History, Kate undertook a student equivalent of Morgan Spurlock‘s Super Size Me. The stunt was picked up by a national paper that featured her eating kebabs for a week for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Kate Quilton Net Worth And Career
Having started working during her college days, Kate has managed to acquire a lot of experience. She got her first TV reporter job for ITV West which was followed by more projects later. With nearly 15 years of work experience in the entertainment industry, one can assume Kate Quilton’s net worth must be a notable figure.
Likewise, Kate used to shoot a segment on the local football team in between lectures at her university. After graduation, Quilton spent a year focusing on a live science show for young people around the world for the Institute of Engineering and Technology. That helped her land the role of a broadcast journalist for the BBC in Somerset.
The blonde presenter started working for Channel 4 in 2008 and ran the online editorial for some of its biggest shows for six years. She soon became one of the channel’s promising commissioning editors. She also worked on a few award-winning projects, which must have increased her income massively.
Having presented a four-part series, Superfoods: The Real Story, in 2015, Kate garnered massive recognition earning her a second season of six episodes. James Lance’s wife also presented The Shopper’s Guide to Saving Money in 2015, followed by the Tricks of the Restaurant Trade with Simmon Rimmer, which also aired a second season.
With all these projects, we can assume that Kate has managed to amass a significant sum of money. Likewise, an average salary of a television presenter in England is $44,454 (£37,540). So, Quilton’s paycheck must also be significant. Hence, Kate Quilton’s net worth must be considerable.
Love At First Sight; Has A Son
As mentioned above, the journalist is happily married to her handsome actor spouse, James. The presenter met her hubby at the Edinburgh Festival and said it was love at first sight. Lance was in a play while she was there for the TV festival. Quilton also instantly felt lucky to see him and even predicted having his babies.
The pair exchanged their wedding vows in June 2016. In addition, Kate Quilton’s husband has been nominated for Outstanding Guest Actor In A Comedy Series for Ted Lasso in the 2022 Emmys.
The Quilton-Lance duo also shares a child together. Kate Quilton’s son was born in June 2018. However, she has refrained from even sharing his name on social media and decided not to reveal his identity.
Nevertheless, James Lance’s wife seems to be living a comfortable and content life with her family. Let’s hope she can keep achieving success and stay happy.
