Becky has also presented BBC1's Newsround programme, GMTV's Entertainment Today, Channel 5's The Wright Stuff and has also been Anglia's weather presenter. Most of her time is taken up looking after her three boys, but when she has a spare moment she likes to cluck around her ex-battery hens, make her own cosmetic lotions and potions, and find new ways of keeping fit without getting completely bored!

Jonathan Wills

Jonathan has been a journalist for over 20 years. After completing a Sports Studies degree it soon dawned on him that he was never going to play cricket for England, so instead decided to see if he could talk about it and joined BBC Southern Counties radio where he was a sports presenter before moving into television in the same role for BBC in London. At ITV London he was awarded the Regional Sports Presenter of the Year by the Royal Television Society before moving into mainstream news. His toughest assignment was as one of the first reporters on the scene at Kings Cross following the terrorist bombing. Jonathan is proud to be part of the fantastic Anglia Tonight team and says he feels privileged to present the flagship programme.

Amanda Houston

Amanda has been a Weather Presenter at ITV Anglia since 2008. She’s originally from Cumbria, but moved to Newcastle in her teens, where she began her career in the media as an editorial assistant at the Evening Chronicle. While she always had her heart set on weather presenting, her route into the role wasn’t exactly conventional. She’s worked in club promotions, PR, newspaper sales, account management, media buying, radio presenting and even appeared in a few TV adverts.

Amanda had almost given up on here dream of being a weather presenter and was planning to go to Australia when she applied for the job at Anglia. She'd booked a one-way ticket and sold all her possessions when she heard she’d been successful. So she changed her plans in an instant to pursue her dream job and hasn’t looked back!

Amanda still loves to travel though, both with her husband and by herself. In recent years has backpacked around India, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and America. Closer to home, she enjoys visiting Europe, and has spent many a summer in Ibiza as she is a huge fan of house music. In fact in her spare time she can regularly be found spinning on her decks, but also equally enjoys chilling out in tea-rooms and practising yoga.
