Most often famously seen with her comedic partner Sue Perkins under the name Mel and Sue, Mel Giedroyc was born in Surrey, England in 1968. Giedroyc would go on to attend University of Cambridge, where she joined the college's famous Footlights Dramatic Club and met Perkins along the way. The two would land their first professional TV gig writing for the sketch series "French and Saunders" (BBC, 1987-) in 1996. By the following year, she and Perkins were co-hosting the morning chat show "Lite Lunch" (Channel 4, 1997-98), which was later given a primetime slot and renamed "Late Lunch" (Channel 4, 1998-99). Meanwhile, Giedroyc honed her acting skills as well, playing Lisa on Rhona Campbell's series "Rhona" (BBC, 2000-01) in addition to numerous guest appearances. Giedroyc would continue to appear regularly on panel shows and as a presenter as well, both with Perkins and without. She would appear on "The Graham Norton Show" (BBC, 2007-) three times over the years, and co-hosted a number of projects with her creative partner, including the morning chat show "RI:SE." (Channel 4, 2002-2003) and the 2010 BFI London Film Festival Awards. In 2010, Giedroyc and Perkins became co-hosts on the competitive reality series "The Great British Bake Off" (BBC, 2010-), which soon became one of the most popular shows in England. The two would continue with the series until it moved from the BBC to Channel 4 in 2016.
