Who is Nikki Fox?

Fox is an award-winning journalist, documentary maker and presenter. 

Born in 1980, Nikki is originally from Hillingdon but went on to study a B.A. (Hons) in music at Brunel University.

She started her career at BBC Radio Cambridgeshire but has gone on to work in various broadcasting roles including as a co-host of Gok-Wan's Channel 4 show How to Look Good Naked with a disability. 

Fox was also born with muscular dystrophy, a condition where a group of muscular diseases weaken and break down skeletal muscles over time.

One of her most inspiring works is the documentary "Beyond Disability: The Adventures of a Blue Badger" for BBC Radio 5 Live, which she researched and presented to shine a light on the day to day reality of being disabled in the UK.

The film won a Sony accolade and at the 2012 New York Festivals Radio Programme and Promotion Awards.

Fox is perhaps most famous for her role as a BBC disability news correspondent which she began in 2014.

You may also recognise her as a BBC Watchdog presenter and from her appearances on BBC One's The One Show.

The Wheel airs on BBC One on Saturdays at 8.30 pm.
