Cat Deeley          

BritishTV Presenter, Actress, Singer, and Model; Best Known as Host on Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance"

Cat Deeley is a model and British television personality. She has hosted "So You Think You Can Dance" since 2006, for which she has received two Primetime Emmy nominations.

At the age of 16, Deeley was spotted by a Storm Modeling agent and signed, and she began modeling full-time at 18. With her outgoing and bubbly personality, Deeley quickly tired of modeling and decided to pursue her dreams of working in television. In 1997, she began appearing on MTV UK as a VJ. The following year, Deeley made her debut as co-host of the family variety program "SM: TV Live." Her breakthrough role on the popular Saturday kids show earned Deeley a BAFTA Children's Award for Best Presenter in 2001. The blonde beauty also earned a significant adult following as evidenced by her No. 7 rank on FHM magazine's sexiest women list that same year.

In 2002, Deeley was brought on to host "CD: UK Hotshots," the "SM: TV Live" spin-off program that featured in-studio performances and interviews with pop acts. She established herself as a host of various reality programs in the U.K., from the look-a-like talent contest "Stars in Their Eyes," to the music competition series "Fame Academy."

Deeley took over for former host Lauren Sanchez after the first season of "So You Think You Can Dance." She's also been a guest reporter for NBC's "The Tonight Show," a guest host on "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" and also hosted FOX's New Year's Eve Special in 2006 and 2007.

In 2010, she also began hosting the UK version of" So You Think You Can Dance." She also co-hosted the CNN coverage of the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011.

Recently, Deeley has started to act with a recurring role in the Hulu series "Deadbeat."
