About Lisa Riley

Lisa Riley: From Emmerdale to Strictly and Beyond

Lisa Riley is a force to be reckoned with in the world of British entertainment. Born in Bury, Greater Manchester in 1976, she first rose to fame as the bubbly, outspoken Mandy Dingle in the long-running soap opera Emmerdale. But her talents extend far beyond the small screen, as she has also made a name for herself as a presenter, dancer, and author.

Riley's acting career began in the early 1990s, when she landed a role in the BBC drama series Band of Gold. But it was her portrayal of Mandy Dingle in Emmerdale that made her a household name. She played the character for six years, earning critical acclaim and a loyal fan base for her energetic and comedic performances.

After leaving Emmerdale in 2001, Riley continued to work in television, appearing in shows such as Fat Friends, Holby City, and Waterloo Road. But it was her appearance on the BBC's Strictly Come Dancing in 2012 that really cemented her status as a national treasure. Partnered with professional dancer Robin Windsor, she wowed audiences with her impressive moves and infectious personality, making it all the way to the semi-finals.

Since then, Riley has continued to work as a presenter and performer, hosting shows such as You've Been Framed! and appearing in pantomimes across the UK. She has also written several books, including her autobiography Never Judge a Book by Its Cover, which chronicles her struggles with weight loss and body image.

But perhaps Riley's greatest achievement is her role as a champion for body positivity and self-acceptance. She has been open about her own weight loss journey, which saw her shed over 12 stone, and has spoken out against the pressure placed on women to conform to unrealistic beauty standards.

As she approaches her 45th birthday, Lisa Riley shows no signs of slowing down. With her infectious energy, infectious personality, and unwavering commitment to empowering women, she is a true icon of British entertainment.
