There's a very deep voiced BBC reporter who sometimes does the French news. The given name is Caroline Wyatt http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice/biographies/biogs...
According to the BBC website:
"She was born in Australia on 21 April 1967 to British diplomats and attended the Convent of the Sacred Heart School in Woldingham, Surrey.
From 1985 to 1989 she studied English and German at Southampton University, which included a six month exchange programme at Rutgers University in New Jersey, USA."

I was just wondering if anyone went to school with her and if she was male at the time. Before you ask, I definitely wouldn't!

She looks alright here on the BBC website:



Are you sure you've got the right person?
Yup looks like the original article to me as well.

I thought the same thing - had the TV on in the background and wouldn't have guessed that voice belongs to 'her'.

A quick look on Google suggests yes they do these days, but not that convent in particular. On the other hand, if someone were to change their sex and name, changing their school history wouldn't be a big deal. Maybe she's a bit of this and a bit of that?

I'm glad I'm not the only one who has wondered this.

It may have helped if you had included one of the more dubious photos of 'her'

She was born male, and indeed was a male news presenter for the BBC, before having a sex change operation. I guess you or I are showing our ages as i remember her as a male presenter.
