Early life

Griffin appeared in the popular long-running ITV soap opera Emmerdale in 1993, playing a minor character called Tina. Between 1992 and 1998, she appeared in Coronation Street as hairdresser Fiona Middleton. She made a guest appearance in 2019. Subsequently, she joined the original cast of the BBC medical drama series Holby City as staff nurse Jasmine Hopkins, but left at the end of the third series in 2001 as the next series would be longer. Griffin has also appeared in the BBC dramas Cutting It and Down to Earth.[citation needed]

In October 2001, Griffin presented a programme on the UK's Channel 4 about mixed race people in British society. The show included interviews with a large number of well-known British mixed-race people such as Bruce Oldfield and Hanif Kureishi, as well as political figures such as Tony Benn.[citation needed]

From 2006 to 2010, she appeared as art teacher and head of pastoral care, Kim Campbell opposite former Cutting It co-star Jason Merrells and former Coronation Street co-star Denise Welch in the BBC One school-based drama series, Waterloo Road. She took a break during the third series in late 2007/early 2008, but returned to the role for the fourth series in 2009. However, she left once again at the end of the fifth series to concentrate on her new daytime show on Sky1.[citation needed]

From November 2009 to July 2010, Griffin hosted her own live daytime show on Sky1 called Angela and Friends, a mix of health topics and celebrity gossip. She was joined by her best friends Lisa Faulkner and Nicola Stephenson.[2] In 1999, she presented The Midweek National Lottery and also took part in the BBC's millennium programme on New Year's Eve. She filmed a pilot for the show Dishes on Channel 4, but decided against presenting it once it had been commissioned and was replaced by Kate Thornton.

Griffin also provides the voice of Amy, the vet in children's television show Postman Pat. On 27 March 2007, Griffin appeared on the daytime cooking show Daily Cooks Challenge, in which she revealed that some of her favourite dishes were banana fritters and lobster noodles.[citation needed]

In March 2008, Griffin appeared on the daytime reality show Murder Most Famous, where, with five other celebrities, she wrote a crime novel, coached by crime writer Minette Walters, the end prize being, having the winning celebrities' novel published. It was won by former Coronation Street co-star Sherrie Hewson.[3]

In January 2010, Griffin and Gethin Jones co-presented Sky 1's coverage of the Golden Globes. Griffin appeared in the first two series of Sky TV comedy drama Mount Pleasant and presented Emergency with Angela Griffin on Sky1.
