Grace’s love of motorsport led to her first television appearance as an interviewer on ‘Motors TV’ for popular motorcycle championship ‘Thundersport GB’. She would open the show and chat to competitors before and after races, which would then be broadcast on freeview TV and online. Grace took brilliantly to the role and went on to present and interview on the show for two years.
Whilst Grace was filming for Motors TV, she also studied for a degree in Primary Education. Her passion for inspiring and motivating young minds, led Grace to be a classroom teacher for four and a half years before taking a promotion to Assistant Headteacher for a further year and a half.
Grace’s work in education teamed with her love of motorsport made her the perfect candidate to present on the ‘Amazing Machines’ series for Cbeebies. ‘Grace’s Amazing Machines’ first aired in autumn 2019 and sees Grace introduce pre-school audiences to some of the biggest, fastest and most amazing machines in the world. Grace’s natural and enthusiastic style has made the show very popular with both children and parents in its debut on the BBC, and so a second series of ‘Grace’s Amazing Machines’ aired a year later.
In Spring 2020, Grace appeared as an educator on the highly anticipated ‘BBC Bitesize Daily’, the corporation’s biggest ever education programme, shown on red button, BBC Iplayer and CBBC (winter 2021 lockdown). Grace featured as the core subject educator in the Primary programme’s launch week and also covered subjects such as well-being, geography and music in the following weeks that schools across the UK remained closed. As a familiar face to younger children and her experience as a teacher, she was very welcomed by the audience and has had positive praise for her work.
Grace now heads into 2021 as the new presenter and face of ‘DrivingElectric’, an online platform celebrating the most efficient electric cars and is the ultimate destination to find out facts, advice and reviews on all things regarding driving electric. Grace delivers in-depth reviews of electric and electrified cars, from range and charging times to running costs and practicality. Her growing library of videos displayed on the platform aim to cover the entire new electric car market in the UK, making it easier for viewers to make a fully informed choice about electric driving.
Grace is known for her love of adventure, discovering new things and taking on a challenge. She is a passionate action & motorsport enthusiast, and is one to watch in the world of sports and factual programming.
Grace Webb is a fresh new talent in television presenting. Her friendly and engaging style appeals to all ages and has given her an explosive start to her career.
