REALITY TV star and priest Kate Bottley will talk about her career in an event at Leeds Trinity University.

The Rev Bottley, who graduated from the university more than 20 years ago, will talk about God and the Gogglebox: from Trinity to Telly.

The Trinity Talk, on Wednesday, November 7, will be given as part of the university’s journalism and media week, which celebrates its 10th anniversary.

A Church of England priest in Nottinghamshire, Kate is perhaps best known for appearing on Channel 4’s Gogglebox in 2014 but her five-season stint on the award-winning show led to presenting work on BBC documentaries, Songs of Praise and BBC Radio 2.

She is now a priest, journalist, reality television star, broadcaster and presenter, and has made guest appearances on Celebrity Masterchef, Impossible Celebrities, and 8 out of 10 Cats. She has also written for a variety of newspapers and magazines including The Guardian, The Independent and Radio Times about religious faith, television and education.

Kate said: “I’m really looking forward to going back to Trinity, so much has changed including me, but what hasn’t changed is the quality of teaching, learning and student experience. I have such happy memories of my time at TASC.”

Friendly, personable and with a light-hearted sense of humour, Kate will talk about her incredibly varied and rich career.

Professor Margaret A House, Vice-Chancellor at Leeds Trinity University, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming Kate back to the University. Kate has had a very interesting and varied career and we are looking forward to hearing more about her life after graduating from Leeds Trinity more than 20 years ago. Everyone is welcome to attend and we look forward to seeing a full audience for our first Trinity Talk of the academic year.”

Doors open at 6pm with the Trinity Talk at 7pm followed by questions and answers. Tickets cost £10 per person and include entry to the talk, a drink on arrival and buffet dinner. Tickets are available from the university’s online store.

The journalism and media week takes place from November 5 to 9. A full programme of free events and activities can be found on the university’s website for anyone interested in a career in journalism or the media.
