Career

Early life

While at school she took jobs in a chocolate factory and as a cleaner, and while studying drama at Loughborough University, she was a nanny and manager of Santa's grotto.[1]

Television

Rogers started her television career behind the scenes working as a researcher on shows including Johnny Vaughan's The Fall Guy, The Girlie Show, Absolutely Animals and Light Lunch with fellow researcher Dermot O'Leary.

While working as an assistant producer and not wishing to miss the World Cup, a friend suggested she audition for the football show "Under the Moon" on Channel 4. She first starred on Channel 4’s Big Breakfast in June 2000, when she hosted the "Find Me A Weather Presenter." This resulted in an irregular role, which led to later co-presenting, before the show ended in March 2002. She was also the presenter of the reality television show The Block. She played the character Tanya in the 2000 TV mini series Lock, Stock..., a spin-off from the film Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.

She has since appeared as a regular panellist on ITV's Loose Women and presented programmes such as Scrapheap Challenge. Whilst on Scrapheap challenge, Rogers became pregnant and in the Wellington boot-throwing contest, stated that if she got any more excited she would go into labour. She also appeared as a guest in the eighth series of Never Mind the Buzzcocks.

As of 2008, Rogers has most recently been seen as the presenter of Sunshine for Channel 4, which previewed the new Danny Boyle film of the same name, as a regular presenter of Sky One's motoring programme Vroom Vroom.

In August 2008, what started as a job as presenter of a documentary ended up becoming a polemic about genital plastic surgery, The Perfect Vagina[2], with her changed status being reflected as "Author" rather than simply "Presenter".

Personal life

Her family originates from Trellech, near Monmouth, in south east Monmouthshire. Lisa is also known to be an Arsenal F.C. supporter[citation needed].
