TV presenterEdit

She made the career of journalism and started making reports in local stations of Valencia and Gandía. She was editor of the program Todo Madrid in 2002. On March 24, 2003, along with Jorge Javier Vázquez she began to present in Telecinco the program that would take her to stardom, Aquí hay tomate, focusing on gossip. The program lasted until 1 February 2008[1] with a lot of audience but criticism of sensationalism. She tried to repeat the success with another gossip program that year, Las gafas de Angelino, but it only lasted one month.[2]

On 28 December 2008, she presented ¡Guaypaut!, the Spanish version of Wipeout as well as 10 editions of the Guinness World Récords (focusing on people who had won or tried to win a Guinness) in 2009.[3] She also collaborated in debates of some reality shows of Telecinco (Gran Hermano, Supervivientes). In summer of 2011 she replaced Ana Rosa Quintana in her program.[4] 2020 Colaboradora programa en Zapeando en la Sexta TV
