Anneka Rice



Challenge Anneka



Treasure Hunt


Born in the Vale of Glamorgan in 1958, Anneka moved to Hong Kong where she had a job reading the news. After a short spell on children's television, she rose to fame as the Skyrunner on Treasure Hunt. Her outgoing, bubbly personality ensured that she would become the most famous figure in the early years of Channel 4, as she spent most days jumping into rivers, being rescued by seals, or climbing up ladders. She was voted Rear of the Year 1987, in honour of the standard Treasure Hunt shot.

Anneka left Treasure Hunt after the 1988 series, to make the Challenge Anneka series for the BBC. She also made travel series Passport for the Beeb, and early Army reality show Combat for ITV.

She retired from television in the mid-90s, to spend more time with her family.

In 2006 she came out of retirement to host a cookery show on Sunday mornings with Andi Peters against the BBC's Sunday Brunch. It is not yet known if her singing is any better.
