Clara Amfo is one of British radio and television’s most exciting voices and faces. An award winning broadcaster, podcaster and television presenter best known for her work on BBC Radio 1, where she hosted the official chart and the world famous Live Lounge. She currently hosts the prestigious Future Sounds show, breaking new music from rising and established artists.

Known for her warm, honest style, Clara is a trusted and skilled interviewer. To date she has sat down with some of the world’s most prolific artists including Jay-Z, Kendrick Lemar, Dua Lipa, Sir Elton John, Harry Styles and Billie Eilish who personally requested Clara for her LA Special.

 

With music, the arts and live television being obvious passions, she has her natural enthusiasm to anchor many cultural highlights including, The BRITS Awards red carpet, Glastonbury, Team GB 2021 Homecoming Concert, BBC Young Dancer, Top Of The Pops, Global Citizen, The Proms Live and the inaugural Earth Shot prize which went on to win a television BAFTA in 2022.

Her work has seen her recognised on the covers of Cosmopolitan, Grazia, Stylist and British Vogue - presenting British Vogue's 'Forces For Change' series with BMW.  More recently, she was named as an ambassador for Pantene UK and a trustee for The Royal Academy Of Arts. Clara is also a proud ambassador of Bloody Good Period, founding their 'Bloody Good Music' event fundraising vital funds for the charity.

In 2020 Clara took part in the eighteenth series of Strictly Come Dancing leaving the show with a leaderboard topping Charleston, an extra passion for dance and an army of new fans. 2021 saw Clara pick up the award for Best Radio Show at The Music Week awards for the second year running and BPG’s Audio Presenter Of The Year. She launched her podcast ‘This City’ with guests including Louis Theroux, Ncuti Gatwa, Mark Ronson and Alex Scott, all sharing their stories about London with her.

 

As an enthusiastic lover of cinema, Clara has hosted the iconic 'Film' show on BBC, 'Ultimates' on Sky TV as well presenting for BAFTA, capturing the excitement of the red carpet live for both the film and television ceremonies. She has hosted a range of film premieres including Marvel’s Black Panther, Disney’s The Lion King and Bond 25: No Time To Die, launching the latter from Ian Fleming's home in Jamaica.

Obsessed with all things pop culture and trivia, Clara has been crowned the winner of all her appearances on The Weakest Link, Pointless and The Hitlist raising thousands for her chosen charities and has made notable appearances on The Last Leg, Would I Lie To You and The Great British Bake Off for Stand Up To Cancer.

Clara enjoyed a dream come true, sitting alongside Mama Ru as a guest judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race, another surprise dream was realised via International Women’s Day, when Clara had the honour of being immortalised as a Barbie® Shero doll which is pride of place in her office!

2022 is set to be another exciting year with the continuation of her radio show, podcast and television projects, including new reality series 'Written In The Stars' launching globally on Discovery Plus.
