Gail Porter is a Scottish television presenter, television personality, former model and actress. In the 1990s she became known for photos in men’s magazines such as FHM, including one nude which was projected on to the Houses of Parliament. She moved into television, becoming a presenter on British TV. Her modelling was affected by alopecia, which can sometimes result in an almost total loss of her hair.
In 2005 Porter developed alopecia totalis, losing her hair. She decided not to wear a hat or wig in order to raise awareness of the condition. She became ambassador for the Little Princess Trust, a charity which provides wigs to children with hair loss. On Richard & Judy on 15 February 2006 she showed her hair, eyebrows and eyelashes were beginning to grow back.
In 2004 to 2006 she presented three series of Dead Famous and in 2009 presented episodes of The Gadget Show, temporarily replacing Suzi Perry. In 2008 to 2011, Porter was a regular panelist on Channel 5’s The Wright Stuff.
