Ebene News – GB – How tall is Sandi Toksvig and how much does it cost for Bake Off?

News Corp is a network of leading companies in the world of diversified media, news, education and information services

SANDI TOKSVIG is best known for entertaining fans on The Great British Bake Off and QI

The Danish-born comedian has had a vast career ranging from writing and stand-up to theater and television

Her father, Claus Toksvig, was a Danish journalist and foreign correspondent, so Sandi spent much of her youth in New York

Her mother, Julie Anne Toksvig, formerly Brett, is British – and Sandi was educated at Tormead, a private girls’ school near Guildford, while her father worked in London

Sandi – who is 4 feet 11 inches tall – studied law, archeology and anthropology at the University of Cambridge – where she began her career in comedy

The couple renewed their vows on March 29, 2014 – the same day same-sex marriage was legalized in England and Wales

Their civil partnership was converted to marriage in December 2014 and the couple live in a houseboat in Wandsworth, south-west London

In 1994, Save the Children discontinued Sandi’s services after her release, but later apologized after a Lesbian Avengers protest

The three children were carried by her ex-partner Peta Stewart, from whom she separated in 1997

Her children were conceived by artificial insemination with donor Christopher Lloyd-Pack – the younger brother of Only Fools and Horses actor Roger Lloyd-Pack

Sandi began her television career in 1982, presenting the children’s television program No 73, followed by the Sandwich Quiz, The Saturday Starship, Motormouth, Gilbert’s Fridge and Island Race Society

In October 2012, following allegations that the BBC tolerated sexual harassment by Jimmy Savile and others, Sandi said they “did not surprise me at all”

She also claimed to have been groped by a “famous individual” live in the 80s

Sandi threw four stones in 2014 and later said that was what gave her the confidence to go from radio to TV

In the same year, she received an OBE in the 2014 New Year’s Honors List

In 2016, she became known as the face of QI, replacing Stephen Fry to become the first female presenter of a British mainstream television comedy show, before joining Noel Fielding to co-host The Great British Bake Off.

In 2019, she jumped from the kitchen to the backyard becoming a famous guest of the Chelsea Flower Show

She left GBBO in 2020, but stayed with Channel 4 to host Extraordinary Escapes with Sandi Toksvig in February 2021

Away from television, the odd woman of Danish origin was also the host of the quiz show What The Dickens and will be a familiar voice to Radio 4 listeners

Sandi has appeared in a number of plays, including Much Ado About Nothing and The Comedy of Errors, and has written a lot of material

She has accumulated her fortune through her TV presentation costs as well as the net income from her books and other endorsements

The Copenhagen-born star revealed she was the highest paid person while on GBBO, telling The Sun: “On my show, no one gets paid more than me

“I’m not asking what they’re paid – I’m just making sure they don’t get more than me”
